Company of Heroes 2 players recently got a treat in the form of an update that adds in some oft-requested features. First up is Observer Mode, which lets players sync up and watch live multiplayer matches, viewing the games from a variety of angles and different speeds while switching between player perspectives. Observer Mode also grants access to previously inaccessible live data and should ultimately serve as a handy tool for analyzing strategies and learning from some of the best players Company of Heroes 2 has to offer.  Those who want to fall on the broadcasting side of things can do so through an integrated Twitch interface, opening up an already wide audience. The Observer Mode itself allows for more than 500 concurrent viewers per live match, with the ability to scale up to tens of thousands for special events.

The folks at Relic Entertainment also added in Mod Tools, serving up more creative opportunities for the ever-growing modding community. Features in the Mod Tools release include an Attribute Editor, Mod Builder, Archive Viewer, Tuning Packs, and Win Condition Packs. Now let’s see what some of our crafty readers can cook up in Company of Heroes 2.
