THQ have announced the pre-order incentives for their highly anticipated strategy title, and the details of the Digital Collector’s Edition.
Customers who pre-order the game from participating retailers will receive a global pre-order bonus consisting of two vehicle skins for their medium weight vehicles, the German Rotbraun and Soviet Leningrad, with selected retailers including Amazon.co.uk also offering guaranteed beta access during the Closed Beta phase. GAME Group customers who pre-order will receive a third exclusive vehicle skin for their heavy weight vehicle, the German Disruptive.
As well as these incentives customers who pre-order the game from Steam will be enrolled into the exclusive Steam Pre-Purchase Tiered Reward Program which will feature a number of rewards including unlocks for Team Fortress 2 and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II Retribution.
Players who choose to pre-order from Origin instead, will receive all of the global pre-order incentives as well as an exclusive Soviet Bryansk Front vehicle skin to convert their heavy vehicles.
Finally ShopTHQ pre-order customers will receive the same global pre-order incentives as the other retailers 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. The Command Pass will also be available for purchase separately post-release. To pre-order from ShopTHQ please go to http://shop.thq.com.
As well as Standard Edition of the game, a Digital Collector’s Edition is available for £69.99. Included in this edition is access to the first three single player “Content Packs” when they become available as well as the Command Pass, exclusive heavy German Whitewash and Soviet Winter Cobblestone tank skins and a Veteran badge to display on the player’s in-game profile. Additionally, players will receive the award-winning original Company of Heroes base game with both its expansion packs.
Ron Moravek, Executive Vice President of Production commented, “We are dedicated to delivering a worthy sequel that improves on the experience delivered by Company of Heroes. We are delighted to be able to reward our most dedicated fans with these unique pre-order incentives to help them stand out from the crowd.”
Company of Heroes 2 is due for release on PC in early 2013.
