Company of Heroes Simulate Soviet Weather

THQ announced a few days ago that Company of Heroes 2 will feature weather simulating technology. 

Harsh Soviet winters played a significant role in the Easter Front of World War II, which is now being realistically simulated in-game by Relic Entertainment and their new Essence Engine 3.0 and ColdTech system. 

ColdTech reportedly includes an extreme cold mechanic that manages to accurately re-create the brutal -40 degrees temperatures that were experiences in 1941. The game has gone so far as to allow human skin to freeze, which would happen in reality if humans were trapped in these conditions. 

Combining this with the Essence Engine allows players to melt off snow from objects, buildings and vehicles. 

Company of Heroes is available for the PC in early 2013.
