THQ and Relic have begun taking pre-orders for Company of Heroes 2 on both Steam and Origin platforms. Any and all pre-orders will automatically unlock a “global pre-order bonus” of two vehicle skins for the medium weight German Rotbraun and Soviet Leningrad vehicles.
Steam pre-orders seem to be the better deal of the two, offering access to the Pre-Purchase Tiered Reward Program Thingy whereby more pre-orders means more unlocks for your Steam account in Team Fortress 2 and Dawn of War II: Retribution. Origin customers get an extra skin for the Soviet Bryansk Front vehicle, which is, you know, nice.
THQ has also announced a digital collectors edition, which includes access to the first three single player “Content Packs” when they become available, as well as the “Command Pass” which will “entitle players to download new bonus multiplayer maps as well as take part in exclusive member’s only events”, a shiny special heavy German Whitewash and Soviet Winter Cobblestone tank skin pair, and a Veteran badge. Perhaps most excellently, the digital collectors edition also comes with a free copy of the original Company of Heroes, as well as all its expansions.
The regular edition is running at $79.99, while the digital collectors edition is at $129.99.
