Company of Heroes for Mac

Company of Heroes for Mac

Someone mentioned that she was looking for the port Company of Heroes for Mac in Porting Kit. I mentioned then that the game was already available for Mac. However, it seems that the game is out of the Mac Store and not available anymore on the Aspyr website as well. So I ported the game again and is available for Crossover and in Porting Kit. The game works great! Even on low-end Macs.

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.
