Company of Heroes 2 is currently free on the Humble Store

Posted by , / 5452 views

Lacking funds and need your gaming fix? Got you covered! Company of Heroes 2 is currently free to grab on the Humble Store.

Developed by Relic Entertainment and originally released for Windows back in 2013, it was later ported by Feral Interactive to Linux in August of 2015. It has a single-player campaign, as well as multiplayer versus the AI and Linux/Mac online multiplayer.

If you're unfamiliar, here's the Linux launch trailer:

I've personally put many hours into the game and I do enjoy it, so hopefully more of you will be able to get involved now too.

If you enjoy it, be sure to check out one of the DLCs in future to support Feral Interactive so they can continue to port Linux games. Most of all, just enjoy a good free game! Grab it free right here.

Ps. As noted in our comments, be sure to redeem the key by December 30th.

Should be noted that if not redeemed my December 30th your key will vanish from Humble:
"The redemption deadline is December 30th, 2017 at 10:00 AM Pacific. You have 15 days left!

Immediately after 10AM Pacific on December 30th, the Steam key will magically vanish as if it were just a figment of your imagination, leaving this cryptic message behind in its wake."

I assume you only see that if you redeem it? Doesn't show that for me on the store page.

Is it my delusional perception, or have companies really stepped up this giveaway thing recently? I've lost count of how many games I added to my collection this year, from giveaways. I guess it's an efficient advertising strategy. Maybe.

If you're a heathen double-booter like me, by the way, ubisoft is currently giving away Assassin's Creed 4 (which is a very good game, by the way). Earlier on they gave away Watchdogs.

I'd even buy these if they were on linux ..?

btw. the redeem-period of 15 days is perfectly normal. Those keys are not active for a lifetime, you usually have around 2-3 weeks to redeem them.

Wanted to try this game long time ago. So quite a good news.

But on the other I can't help but think these kind of promotion does no good for Feral Interactive.

Because most people interested to get it on windows already have the game since few years. And I get a free product from some people who worked hard and did very good job to port it to Linux.


I'm money tight like many of us for christmas, so hee's my deal, if I like the game I will purchase a couple of the extensions at feral store.

Good week end everyone.

I guess most people who would pay money for it already got it, and this way, Feral gets some money for the rest of us (like me).

Got it, placed all settings at rock bottom and ran "performance test", got an average FPS of 7.2.

Needs 34870 MB of hard disc space.
Well, I guess I'll play it later.
