If you pre-order a bunch of copies for your whole group, then everyone receives the Commissar Chest, which includes free in-game currency to use towards future content, an XP boost, a unit boost and the Commander Archetype. Pre-ordering the game from Origin will give you access to an exclusive Soviet Bryansk Front vehicle skin.
Pre-ordering the game from ShopTHQ will give you access to bonus multiplayer maps and exclusive members-only events. This program is called the ‘Command Pass’ and will be for sale separately after the game has launched.
THQ has revealed the pre-order bonuses for Company of Heroes 2. Anyone who pre-orders will receive vehicle skins for the German Rotbraun and Soviet Leningrad, with some retailers also offering guaranteed access to Company of Heroes 2’s closed beta phase.
