Company of Heroes 2 will enter closed beta "shortly after the New Year," a THQ global admin announced via the game's forums.
Once the closed beta is running, those who obtained keys during events and pre-order customers will have access. This week, the developers will open the servers to a limited number of players for stress testing; details will be announced on the official website, Facebook and Twitter pages. A new trailer is also expected soon.
