Origin customers may be left in the cold.

If you’ve slapped down money for Company of Heroes 2 on Steam, it’s good news for you: the closed beta period has begun.
Six maps are available to play on during the closed beta, giving you a taste of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 multiplayer.
Comp-stomps against the AI are also working in the closed beta, as is the army customiser tool. The first 40 levels of progression have been unlocked for testing.
It’s not clear what’s happening for customers who pre-ordered through Origin instead of Steam; some comments I’ve seen indicate that the whole affair is a mess and might not be fully functional yet (if it ever will be at all, as SEGA’s press release only mentions Steam).
