Company of Heroes 3 now has a release date and a playable demo
Relic Entertainment has revealed that Company of Heroes 3, their upcoming World War II RTS, will be released on November 17th 2022 on Steam. The game will feature two single-player experiences at launch, including an almost Total War-like Italian Dynamic Campaign and a more traditional North African Campaign.
Until July 19th, PC gamers will be able to playa "Mission Alpha" for the game's North Africa Operation campaign, which will allow gamers to play as the Deutsches Afrikakorps (DAK) as they fight against the British. This Alpha will give PC gamers another chance to play Company of Heroes 3 ahead of launch, acting as another early demo for the game.
Pre-orders for Company of Heroes 3 are now available, with gamers on Steam getting the game's "Devil's Brigade DLC Pack" for free if they pre-order the game. This DLC pack is primarily a cosmetics pack for multiplayer, making this DLC non-essential. A physical premium edition of Company of Heroes 3 will also be available soon to pre-order that includes the game's Devil’s Brigade DLC Pack, a Service Medal, a Pocket Compass, a Collector’s Book and other items.
PC gamers can apply to access Company of Heroes 3's Mission Alpha at CompanyOfHeroes.com.
Press Release - Company of Heroes 3 Coming to Steam November 17th
Relic Entertainment, Inc and SEGA® Europe Limited are excited to announce that Company of Heroes™ 3, the next installment in the beloved RTS franchise, releases on PC via Steam on November 17th , 2022. 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.
Those eager to get their hands on Company of Heroes 3 won’t have to wait until November to play it. Head over to CompanyOfHeroes.com now 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 Tuesday July 12 to July 19.
While the previously announced Italian Dynamic Campaign offers a branching, open-ended experience, 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 rapidstrike 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 hardhitting artillery like the German Flak 36 and British 17-Pounder.
Players can pre-order Company of Heroes™ 3 at CompanyOfHeroes.com and receive some awesome bonus items at launch. The Digital Premium Edition comes with the Devil’s Brigade DLC Pack, containing cosmetics based on the first elite commando units of World War II. The Physical Premium Edition includes the Devil’s Brigade DLC Pack, Service Medal, Pocket Compass, Collector’s Book and much more. Both the physical and digital Premium editions will give players access to CoH3’s first expansion – coming to Steam in 2023. A full breakdown of all available pre-order content can be found on CompanyOfHeroes.com.
