Popular World War 2 strategy game ‘Company of Heroes’ released on iPhone

Originally developed for Windows by Relic Entertainment, the critically acclaimed “Company of Heroes” game was recently designed and developed by Feral for the ‌iPad. Following the iPad release, the World War II strategy game has now been released on the iPhone.

The game sees players command two crack companies of American soldiers and direct an intense campaign in the European Theater of Operations starting with the D-Day Invasion of Normandy.

The gaming giant has optimized the game for ‌iPhone‌, and it features the same refined command wheel and command panel options seen on ‌iPad‌ that let players perform real-time tactics and battle with the opposition to secure the liberation of France.
