Preordering the game from participating retailers will give players free access to the Theatre of War mini-campaign, offering an unspecified amount of additional single-player content. Sega says this will be available post-release, but no date was mentioned.

For the multiplayer part of Company of Heroes 2, customers who preorder will get the Winter Ambush and Voronezh Front skin packs for vehicle customisation alongside two multiplayer commanders for each army. The German forces get the Joint Operations Doctrine, which specialises in artillery, and the Offensive Spearhead Doctrine for better heavy armour and airstrikes.

The Soviet army gets the Anti-Infantry Tactics Doctrine, which provides the flamethrower tank among other bonuses, and the Conscript Support Tactics, allowing for reinforcements during combat.

The game, which is currently in closed beta, will be released for PC on June 25. Sega purchased the publishing rights for the game from THQ earlier in the year.
