Closed Beta is Coming to Company of Heroes 2
SEGA and Relic have announced the closed beta for Company of Heroes 2, which is going to be available exclusively to players who pre-order the game on Steam. The beta is set to begin on April 2 and run for an indeterminate amount of time.
The closed beta is being conducted to primarily test the game’s multiplayer features and gather feedback from players for gameplay balance and technical issues. Players will have six maps to choose from, with 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 competitive battles. Additionally, players will be able to skirmish cooperatively against the AI.
Players will be able to earn up to 40 levels and customize their loadouts through the game’s Army Customizer system.
“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,” wrote Greg Wilson, Producer.
Quinn Duffy, Game Director, added “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.”
Underpinned by the Essence 3.0 Engine, Company of Heroes 2 innovates the real-time strategy genre with true line of sight and destructible environments.
