Company of Heroes 2, the sequel to the beloved, WWII themed RTS game Company of Heroes, became available for pre-purchase on Steam today at a price of $59.99. From the current description and trailer available, it seems that players will command the Soviet Red Army this time, providing a fresh and uncommon perspective of the war.
The page of Steam features a “pre-purchase reward” bar, which fills up as more people pre-purchase the game. As the bar fills up, all players who pre-purchase will receive rewards in up to three tiers, including TF2 hats, a free copy of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Retribution, and in game currency.
While the decision to incentivize pre-purchases may turn off some gamers, it hard to dislike the trailer for the game below:
