"We are proud to announce that Company of Heroes 2, the eagerly anticipated strategy game from Relic Entertainment, will be running an exclusive, early access beta phase which will go live next week on Tuesday, the 2nd of 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 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. For more information keep watching http://www.companyofheroes.com.

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.”

Well, I guess it means that it's finally time to preorder it then. I was beginning to wonder when the beta was finally going to come, seeing how the game is supposed to come out in ~2 months.

So how is the beta? I imagine their's still an NDA so you can't say too much... Is it everything that we wanted it to be?

It's been a while but I just thought I'd pop in and say hi!

Hope y'all are taking it easy!
