While an exact date has not been provided, various reports (and forum posts) are saying that real-time strategy game Company of Heroes 2 will be entering into closed beta only a little while after the New Year. Fairly good timing with the THQ Humble Bundle just coming to a close, which offered Company of Heroes and its numerous expansions.
The news of the Company of Heroes 2 beta came originally came from their forums. Unfortunately, an exact date for the beta wasn’t given, but the forum post has said that the new trailer will launch a little while after tomorrow, December 10th, which is something to get really excited about. This trailer could be announcing the beta as well. Who knows, maybe a beta sign-up page will launch alongside the trailer? Either way, I’m really excited to see what this game is going to have in store for us.
In the mean time, at least those who purchased the THQ Bundle have the original Company of Heroes to get through, right?
2013 is looking extremely promising. We have the new Sim City coming out (which looks rather amazing, I might add), Company of Heroes 2 (obviously), the Dragonborn DLC for Skyrim, a possible Elder Scrolls Online release and so much more! We may even have a possibility at seeing Blizzard’s new Titan MMO at BlizzCon next year, along with the possibilities for Warcraft IV (a sequel to Warcraft III, if you didn’t know).
Hopefully everyone’s wallets are prepared for this new year coming up, as it is going to literally be fantastic for the gaming scene.
