Following Feral Interactive's announcement last week that Company of Heroes would be launching for iPad on 13th February, they have now released a new video that shows gameplay and the mobile mechanics that will be found in the upcoming port of the game.

You'll be able to see the Command Wheel and newly designed tactical map in action that has only previously been seen in gif form late last year. If you do end up buying the game and find the Command Wheel to be too cumbersome then you can still use the more traditional controls that have been optimised for touch as well.

The video also explains that the file size of Company of Heroes will be 5.2gb. However, once you've installed it there are several options that will allow you to reduce the file size of the game to suit your needs. You can choose which campaign missions and skirmish maps are installed as well as deciding if you want high-quality models or not.

They've evidently put a lot of time and thought into this port, though that should come as no surprise to anyone who's played a Feral Interactive effort before. They've previously ported Grid Autosport and Tropico to tablets, both of which our previous writers found to be excellent.
