Company of Heroes 2 digital collector's edition detailed

THQ reveals special edition plus substantial pre-order incentives

Company of Heroes 2, the sequel to 2006's compelling World War 2 strategy game is shaping up nicely with our recent COH 2 preview saying the 'RTS has never looked so good'.

Ahead of its 'early 2013' release, publisher THQ has announced a new Digital Collector's Edition of the game as well as details on the various pre-order bonuses on offer.

The Company of Heroes 2 Digital Collector's Edition will cost £69.99 and gives access to the first three single-player DLC Content Packs as well as a Command Pass, German Whitewash and Soviet Cobblestone tank skins and a Veteran badge to display on your in-game profile. Players will also receive the original Company of Heroes game with both its expansion packs.


There's also a number of bonuses for anyone who simply pre-orders the game with the highlights being additional vehicle skins for the Rotbraun and Soviet Leningrad. Pre-ordering at Amazon gets you guaranteed access during the closed beta phase, while GAME pre-orders get an additional vehicle skin for the German Disruptive.

Steam pre-orders will receive bonus unlocks for Team Fortress 2, Warhammer 40K and Dawn of War II Retribution, while ShopTHQ pre-orders receive all the other pre-order incentives plus the Command Pass, which will give them bonus multiplayer maps as well as exclusive members-only events
