The Company of Heroes 2 demo shown at E3 is now available and you can try it for yourself by simply visiting the game’s page on Steam. The demo is part of the game’s campaign and comes from a mid-game mission called ‘The Land Bridge to Leningrad’ where the players will be asked to cross a frozen lake under heavy German fire. The demo is a portion of the full level included in the retail game.
This demo will be included as a part of the currently running Open Beta on Steam. Players who have the beta installed will notice the Campaign button on the title screen is now unlocked. Clicking on it will take them to the mission select screen where the demo can be launched. New players will need to download the Open Beta from the game’s page on Steam http://store.steampowered.com/app/231430/.
There are tutorial videos available in the build to help any new players familiarize themselves with the Company of Heroes 2 control system.
This demo will be available to play along with the Open Beta up until Tuesday, June 18.
