Company of Heroes 2 has just released its E3 demo to the public. New players will need to download the open beta from the game’s page on Steam. The demo which is part of the game’s campaign and comes from a mid-game mission called The Land Bridge to Leningrad, where the player will be asked to cross a frozen lake under heavy German fire, will be available to play along with the open beta until June 18.

Powered by the Essence 3.0 Engine, Company of Heroes 2 wants to bring tactical strategy to life like never before, thanks to a realistic ColdTech weather system, a revolutionary dynamic line of sight system, TrueSight and realistic destructibility.

Company of Heroes 2 will be available for PC on June 25.
