SEGA has announced the pre-order incentive for Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault and it adds a pretty substantial piece of content! The pre-order DLC will give you access to an all-new Company known as the “Fox” Company. The “Fox” Company is a group of Rangers led by Captain Monte Durante and will sit alongside the other three Companies that are already included in the game; Airborne, Support and Mechanized. You will be allowed to choose up to three Companies to take on the main campaign. Each of the Companies will have their own unique play style, specializations, abilities and Officers. Captain Durante, the pre-order bonus Captain, will have his own backstory to discover as you progress through the campaign. This in turn will allow players to experience the game from a whole new perspective. The new “Fox” Company will also feature a unique mission and company reports that will represent not just a significant amount of additional gameplay options, but also includes addition outcomes. All of this comes free to the people that pre-order Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault.
