Trivia

1001 Video Games

Company of Heroes appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Copy protection

As of September 2006, Company of Heroes is fairly unusual for a retail game of its kind. Unlike hundreds of other games on the store shelves, Company of Heroes does not require the CD-ROM to be present in the drive while playing.

Server shutdown

After SEGA acquired the Company of Heroes rights after THQ's death in early 2013, they permanently shut down the multiplayer servers and transferred multiplayer capabilities to the Steam version. Steam accepts the retail disc code for the game and its expansions for registering.
