Yesterday, THQ and Shanda announced their intentions
to bring upcoming free-to-play Company of Heroes Online
to South Korea via publishing partner WindySoft. Like Relic's PC-only classic Company of Heroes
is an RTS game set during the Second World War, but the additions of a persistent world and expanded player customization (read: microtransactions
) aim to set the online iteration apart.
Currently, no release date is set nor have plans been announced to bring the game to the West. Between Shanda's other
free-to-play MMO, King of Fighters World
, Namco's Katamari Online
, and now this, we're starting to feel like Asia's the rich kid down the block getting all the games we could never afford. Can we come over and play, Asia? Please?
