Company of Heroes 3 is headed to Steam this coming November 18, 2022.
Released by SEGA Europe Limited and Relic Entertainment Inc.Company of Heroes 3 will bring fans and newcomers to the series with the biggest and deepest single-player experience in the franchise’s history. CoH3 will offer four playable factions at launch and two unique single-player experiences, with the Italian Dynamic Campaign and the North African Operation.
The Italian Dynamic Campaign offers a branching, open-ended experience, while the North African Operation is a more classically designed, narrative-led single-player experience. A wealth of new mechanics has drastically changed the battlefield in North Africa, where tank-riding enables coordinated rapid-strike assaults that overwhelm the enemy. Powerful Italian units can be called upon in Mission Alpha, such as the Guastatori combat engineers and the L6/40 Light Tank.
Players can also enjoy new core gameplay innovations like side armour, enemy vehicle recovery and vehicle-towing, which lets you reposition your hard-hitting artillery like the German Flak 36 and British 17-Pounder.
Trying it out Early
You can try out Company of Heroes 3 early when you head over to CompanyOfHeroes.com and sign up for Relic’s community feedback program, COH-Development, to gain access to one mission from the newly revealed North African Operation. Players can try out the Mission Alpha and take command of the infamous Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK) as they attempt to repel the British from their entrenched positions. The Mission Alpha is free to play on Steam for one week from Wednesday, July 13 to July 20.
