The development team at Relic, publisher SEGA and the team at Alienware Arena announce that they are working together to launch a three-week-long one-versus-one Company of Heroes 2 tournament in both the United States and in Europe.
The competition will start on June 7 and 128 players will be able to take part until June 28 as long as they are members of the Alienware Arena, with a chance to pick up cash prizes worth more than 1,000 dollars or Euro.
SEGA also says that it will offer some of those who take part access to the standalone multiplayer of the real-time strategy title.
The competition is designed to show gamers the range of tactical options included in the World War II military simulation and the way the experience was tweaked since launch by the team at Relic.
In late June, fans will also be able to pick up the Western Armies package for Company of Heroes 2, which introduces new factions to play as, more units and tweaks to the core mechanics of the title.
Company of Heroes 2 is available from all good retailers right now.
