The Best Real-Time Tactics Game for Mac Gets Skirmish Mode, Now on Sale for $10

company-of-heroes-1

Company of Heroes: Campaign Edition is hands-down the best pure real-time tactics game available on the Mac to date; there’s nothing yet ported to the Mac that can even come close to matching the WWII squad-based game’s tactical action and realism.

While you won’t get many arguments about the above statement, gamers have had plenty to say about the fact that the Mac port has lacked a sorely needed skirmish mode since the day it arrived at the Mac App Store.

Not any more though — skirmish mode has just been added to the Mac App Store version. And Aspyr has sweetened the pot further by slashing the title’s price to $10.

Other versions remain sans-skirmish at $30; the Aspyr folks have yet to add skirmish mode anything but the App Store version.

We’re not sure how long the $10 sale will be around before it goes back to full price, so if you’re a fan of RTT games (and if your machine can stomach the relatively modest requirements), jump on this one.
