'Company Of Heroes 2' Closed Beta Starts Next Week

by Rainier on March 28, 2013 @ 10:54 a.m. PDT

Company of Heroes 2 is an RTS game that moves the battle away from the common Western Front focus of World War II and refocuses on some of history’s most brutal and devastating conflicts on the Eastern Front.

Company of Heroes 2 challenging players to take command of the iconic Red Army and repel the Nazi invaders from the very gates of Moscow.

Company of Heroes 2 will be running an exclusive, early access beta phase which will go live Tuesday 2nd April.

The closed beta playtest features the game’s critically acclaimed competitive multiplayer and skirmish gameplay, giving players access to six maps, 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 competitive gameplay, as well as the ability to play alone or with teammates against the AI. Players also get access to the first 40 levels of progression, and the ability to customize their loadouts to suit their play style using the all new Army Customizer.

This first phase of the closed beta will be open to eligible pre-order customers only. There will be a second phase in the coming weeks where a wider audience will get a chance to take part.

The Company of Heroes 2 closed beta will be hosted on Steam and utilizes Steamworks match-making and friend lists. Players need the free Steam client to redeem closed beta access keys and play.

Greg Wilson, Producer of Company of Heroes 2, commented, “We are excited to be able to launch the closed beta for Company of Heroes 2. We invite our fans to help us test and balance the game prior to launch, as well as see the changes we’ve already made since the Alpha test in December.”

Quinn Duffy, Game Director, said “We’ve added two brand new maps to the roster for this phase as well as the four already in the Alpha Stress Test. Players can battle fiercely for control of the Oka River, or brave a close quarters skirmish on the outskirts of Moscow.”
