SEGA today announced that the closed beta phase for those who pre-ordered Company of Heroes 2, the eagerly anticipated strategy game from Relic Entertainment, is now live. The closed beta playtest features the game’s critically acclaimed competitive multiplayer and skirmish gameplay, giving players access to six maps, 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 competitive gameplay, as well as the ability to play alone or with teammates against the AI.
Players also get access to the first 40 levels of progression, and the ability to customize their loadouts to suit their play style using the all new Army Customizer.
SEGA has promised that there will be a second phase in the coming weeks where a wider audience will get a chance to take part.
The Company of Heroes 2 closed beta will be hosted on Steam and utilizes Steamworks match-making and friend lists.
Players will need the free Steam client to redeem closed beta access keys and play.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
