40 pre order? You're havin' a larf!

Reward 1
"Exclusive Company of Heroes 2 TF2 Items"

it has fail written all over it when you need to dig this low to get people to pre purchase....

There are probably like 60+ games that have done this too, why is it a big deal?

Uh, exclusive TF2 items are a common pre-order reward on Steam. Deus Ex: Human Revolution had them too and that was a great game. Judging a game based on its pre-order rewards is pretty silly.

Maybe I'm imagining it but do the graphics look nearly identical to the first?
That's the first thing that I've noticed also.

Really looking forward to this, just hope THQ survives long enough to publish it.

I play COH fairly often. Maybe I'm imagining it but do the graphics look nearly identical to the first? I don't spend much time zoomed in as close as this video, so maybe I'm wrong.

I know graphics isn't everything but really this looks like an Eastern Front expansion for COH1. Which isn't that bad of thing, it just doesn't appear to be as groundbreaking as the first. COH1 blew people away at the time. Graphics and physics unheard of in an RTS. This doesn't appear to be receiving near as much attention. Hopefully the gameplay additions can compensate.

According to the Steam pre-order page, this game will have microtransactions.

Reward 3

Everything Above, Plus:

Company of Heroes 2 Commissar Chest*
In-Game Currency Gift to be Used Towards Purchasing Future Content
XP Boost
Unit Boost
Commander Archetype

There goes a great part of my interest in the game. If the transactions are for cosmetic items only though then all is fine. Still, until I hear more about this I'll be taking a cautious interest on this game.
As long as they don't screw up SP. I never did get into MP on the first CoH.

Too bad because the trailer really piqued my interest.

I see their doing that tiered pre-order thing on Steam like X-com did. X-com had a lot of gameplay videos to go by so CoH2 would be smart to do that also if they want my pre-order...

Relic, #1 RTS developer in the world in my eyes! Amazing trailer, although it looks like it could do with some Frostbite engine. Just please dear god, don't make it free-to-play! They should ditch THQ also imo and go with a publisher that isn't dying.
