The lights are on
Pre-order customers get first crack at the upcoming
real-time strategy title from Relic and new parent company Sega.
The beta includes six maps supporting symmetrical
competitive matches from 1v1 to 4v4 against other players or the AI, as well as
the first 40 levels of progression through the metagame and the army
Sega plans to roll out the beta for a wider audience beyond
its pre-order customers in the coming weeks, so you’re not totally out of luck
if you’re waiting to see whether Company of Heroes 2 is worth your money. I was
sold as soon as I got my hands on an alpha build last year and could feel how
the new sightline modeling and weather effects completely change the way you
approach a map, but some of you may require further convincing.
Check out the latest trailer showing off the multiplayer
action in motion here.
