The beta testing program for Relic Entertainment's anticipated RTS Company of Heroes 2 has moved into its final phase, open its doors to all, from today until June 18th.
Featuring the title’s critically acclaimed multiplayer mode, the Open Beta will allow players to experience competitive and co-operative gameplay on six of the game's maps. The Open Beta will also allow gamers to test out the first 45 levels of the game's progression and bulletin system.
As an added incentive players who participate in the Open beta will get to retain all progression and unlocks earned during this period, if they purchase the game within the first 60 days of launch and play it on the same Steam account as the beta.
Greg Wilson, Producer of Company of Heroes 2 commented: "We have been working hard since the Closed Beta balancing and improving all areas of the game as well as adding new matchmaking servers. COH2 has had one of the most successful Beta programs we’ve ever run at Relic and the support of the fans has been a critical factor in making the game more balanced and stable for launch.”
A serial key is no longer required for beta access, simply install the game in the Steam Client via this link.
SEGA also notes that "once downloaded, you may have to right click on the name of the game in the Steam library, select ‘properties’, go to the ‘betas’ tab and opt in to the open beta program via the drop down bar."
