Company of Heroes 2 pre-order incentives revealed

Company of Heroes 2 is shaping up to be one of the best PC exclusive games of 2013. Today, publisher THQ announced that the WWII RTS sequel from Relic would offer some pre-order incentives as well as a special Digital Deluxe version of the game.

The press release states that people who pre-order the game will get two vehicle skins for their medium weight vehicles. People who pre-order on Valve's Steam service will also be able to access the closed beta for Company of Heroes 2 when it launches. In addition, more pre-order rewards will be unlocked the more people pre-order the game on Steam, including a chance to unlock a free copy of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Retribution.

The Digital Deluxe version of the game will cost $99.99 and will offer free access to the first three single player DLC packs, along with exclusive heavy German Whitewash and Soviet Winter Cobblestone tank skins. The Digital Deluxe version will also come with the original Company of Heroes game and its two expansion packs. It will also have what is called the "Command Pass" which will give players access to bonus maps and special "member's only" events.

The game itself is set during the period of the Nazi Germany invasion of the Soviet Union and will be out in the first quarter of 2013.

There is one reason I hate EA is there Apple like milking policy and which is something THQ has now caught on to... They are trying to mimic a Battlefield 3 like model which I hate to an extent. Although, I would love if they brought the hero units from CoH:O. I just loved those but they should be available to be bought for real money and perhaps only through gameplay.

good news but $99 is a bit steep...

It depends on what the price is going to be for the content packs. I wouldn't pay that much unless I wanted a physical collector's edition.
