Company of Heroes 2 Open Beta
Just to let you knwo, CoH2 is going into open beta for about two weaks, meaning it's free to play during that time. I'm going to check it out, and hopefully finish the campaign by the time it's out. :) Multiplayer fans will probably want to buy it, but I'm an SP guy. Also, mind that it's 10GB in size.

Finish the campaign? Isn't the OB just MP?
Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Re: Company of Heroes 2 Open Beta
It's just too bad it's only a prettied up original CoH from what I've seen so far. That and WW2 is kinda overdone theme by now.

I'll probably get this when it's cheaper.

It includes the World War 2 real-time strategy game's multiplayer mode, with competitive and co-op play, on six maps. You'll also have access to the first 45 levels of the game's progression and bulletin system.
Not sure what exactly it means by "45 levels of the game's progression". 45 sounds helluva lot of missions for single player campaign, so probably doesn't mean that.

Re: Company of Heroes 2 Open Beta
45 levels of the game's Call of Duty style ranking system, I'm sure.

 
Re: Company of Heroes 2 Open Beta
Those 45 levels are grinding CoD-style for perks for your units, yes. :doubt:

And oh, the irony of the setting being overdone on only the second game in the series.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Company of Heroes 2 Open Beta
I only really enjoyed the original's SP, but I did enjoy it through all the expansions, so **** it, let's roll them T-34s.

Re: Company of Heroes 2 Open Beta
Finally downloaded it. No campaign, sadly, but I've tried out a match against AI. It plays quite nice, I think I'll buy it once it's 75% off and a little bit cheaper overall.
