The Company of Heroes team also wants players to know that pre-alpha is not strictly a PVP experience. In an informative presentation video for the main pre-alpha producer, Morgan McLaughlin describes the experience for the least concerned with PVP.
It’s not just a PVP experience, said McLaughlin in the video, players can also play solo with the IA or team up with their friends.
From the pre-alpha, the AI will have only one difficulty parameter. Additional IA settings are under development. However, John re stated that the IA in this pre-alpha is slightly smarter and more aggressive than com AI from the past.
Both playable factions, US forces and German Wehrmacht, received updates. New visuals, new units, new technological options and more are all introduced into the pre-alpha. However, the development team, in the FAQ, reminds players that this is after all the pre-alpha and may encounter problems.
