Pre-ordering from "participating retailers" worldwide will offer postlaunch access to a single-player "Theatre of War" episode, along with multiplayer vehicle skin packs, and two additional commanders for each multiplayer army.
"The German army will receive the Joint Operations Doctrine, specializing in precise artillery strikes and the Offensive Spearhead Doctrine for players who want to use heavy armor and airstrikes to crush their opponent," Sega reveals. "The Soviets will unlock the devastating Anti-Infantry Tactics Doctrine, enabling units like flamethrower tanks and the Conscript Support Tactics Doctrine which allows for rapid reinforcement in the heat of battle."
Company of Heroes 2 really does appear to be happening. Sega has a June 25 release date on it, and it's in beta now.
