Mac gamers who are fans of real-time strategy games will be able to get one of the better recent examples made for the PC on August 27. That's when Feral Interactive will release the Mac version of Relic Entertainment's World War II real-time strategy game Company of Heroes 2 via Valve's Steam service for $39.99. It will be released later on the Mac App Store.

The game was originally released for the PC in 2013 and focuses mostly on the Eastern Front of the war, as players control the Soviet Union's Red Army in the majority of battles. Here's a quick summary:

Players will direct their troops through fast-paced real-time battles in the brutal fight to turn the tide of World War II. From the desperate defense of Stalingrad to victory in Berlin, they must defeat a tenacious enemy and survive the deadly cold of the Russian winter.

Objective-based missions challenge players to maneuver soldiers, guns, and tanks across feature-rich environments to scope out the battlefield, secure targets and destroy enemies. Players will navigate hazardous terrain, take advantage of cover and overcome the freezing temperatures and treacherous ice that can make the difference between crushing defeat and hard-won victory.

In addition to the main game, its DLC packs will be available in the Steam store to purchase.
