Delivering a visceral WWII gaming experience, Company of Heroes redefines real time strategy gaming by bringing the sacrifice of heroic soldiers, war-ravaged environments, and dynamic battlefields to life.

Beginning with the D-Day Invasion of Normandy, players lead squads of Allied soldiers into battle against the German war machine through some of the most pivotal battles of WWII. Through a rich single player campaign, players experience the cinematic intensity and bravery of ordinary soldiers thrust into extraordinary events.

About ZombieMod with 17 comments by burtondrummerNY on May 20th, 2014

Hello dear fans!
I am so excited to be writing this news article for you guys today! Life is great - the sun is shining, birds are chirping, and best of all, I'm not sitting in a classroom failing a final exam! Isn't it lovely!?
Ahem, back to the article. I'm so excited to be able to actually write this right now so I can keep you guys updated and show you that we're still alive and breathing. Unfortunately I don't have anything really to show off - a lot of what I've been doing during finals week, besides studying and not sleeping, is drawing little doodles on napkins, notes, old quizzes, etc, so I can't really show you much of that. However, I will address some key points that I've been meaning to get to and share what I can via text!
Firstly, I'd like to thank and specify the members of the team who are still active, at least as far as I'm concerned. Obviously we're all pretty busy with real life, so we've been pitching in wherever we can. Our team looks a little something like this:

  1. burtondrummerNY - Lead developer - do a little bit of everything, especially coding, modeling and texturing.
  2. Aidas2 - Lead modeler - does what he can, when he can
  3. warhammerchaosgod - Balancer, designer - he's in charge of making sure that ZombieMod is a competitive and balanced game that you guys will want to play long after release
  4. Sirpsychoj - Scar god - does just about whatever he wants, but his forte is whipping up scar code like it's his job.
  5. HerrVoss - Mapper extraordinaire - he helps make sure it's clear that this isn't France anymore

Special thanks to DMz, Beefy^, VanAdrian, and the countless members of the CoH community who have lent a hand to ZM during its development. At release there will be a list of contributors with their full contributions made clear.
Secondly, I want to address something of particular importance before I go into the real update. As I'm sure you guys are aware, ZM deals with some particularly sensitive matters, including widespread death of civilians and innocent people. It is not ZM's intent to display anything that could be unsettling, especially when you consider some of the tragedies that have occurred during our development. For this reason, with the added bonus of reducing potential causes of lag, we have decided that depictions of death on maps will be kept to an absolute minimum and will be handled tastefully when needed. On a similar note, I would like to remind everyone that ZM is an apolitical mod - we do not wish to make any political statements of any sort, meaning that topics such as foreign relations (specifically US-Russia, US-China and China-Japan relations), gun-rights, and current politics of any sort will not be addressed.
With all that depressing stuff out of the way, let's get down to business (to defeat the Huns?) We are really excited to make ZM a totally unique experience in CoH and indeed the entire strategy gaming genre. We are doing everything we can, from a mapping, balance and scripting perspective to make sure that ZM is an enjoyable experience. It is my ultimate goal for ZM to be released as a professional-quality product with a wide variety of maps and map types that can be played competitively or for fun by anyone with Company of Heroes and a computer. Unfortunately my speculations on release dates are exactly that - speculations, but it is my fear that, as school gets harder, the mod will not be released until after my graduation in 2016. I certainly do hope, however, to be proven wrong :)
I hope to have stuff for you guys very soon - I'm very eager to get to work and to have some shots out of what we're doing as soon as possible. But first, I think I need about a week to get back on my feet after that year at school. All the best from your ZM team!

I have been looking forward to this game for 18 months, drooling over promo pics and info. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Military History junkie. I read every book I can, and after doing this for over thirty years, my bookshelves are overflowing. The game is now getting monotonous. The bland colours, restricted maps and restrictive order of battle are all realistic enough, but they're getting boring. The WOW! factor has worn off. Skirmish mode is just a flag hunt with lots of dirt, dust and drab environments. The choice of Normandy was a poor one. The bulk of the Normandy Campaign was hedgerow fighting (sort of your vegtation version of house-to-house). It was a gruelling fight by all forces. Tanks were next to useless as their turrets couldn't traverse in the tight laneways, and the emphasis was on infantry tactics. Armoured engagements were few, fast and ultimately negated with the arrival of the P47's and Hawker Typhoons who decimated the German formations as they tried to reach the front. I'm getting really, reallly bored. This is, after all, a game. An expansion had better come out soon. This game seriously needs one.

We really need a Star Wars mod for this game!

Just imagine, a CoH mod featuring the Clone Wars, all those different clone troopers from Ep3 and all those pesky battledroids runnign around, shooting one another.

The OS is your Operating System, probably Windows XP or something.

Thank goodness this game isin't an FPS, there are enough of those out there anyway. Shame about the lack of a German Campaign though, although i'm sure they're going to add one during an update or something because the final medal says "Completed American Campaign"

This is a Real Time Strategy, it's just the models are EXTREMELY detailed compared to preceeding RTS games.

I own Company of Heroes and it's very fun to play, it's like a step-up from Act of War. Unfortunately, there is no German Campaign, but you still can play as the Axis.

This game can get a bit "dry" if you play Skirmishes all the time, the campaign is pretty good, and online is even better.

...A real-time strategy (RTS) game

So, what's this? FPS or RTS? Something is wrong here, I guess.
