Following the game’s release on PC back in February, SEGA and Relic Entertainment announced that the Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition will be released this May on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
This is the first time that Relic Entertainment is bringing a Company of Heroes game to consoles, giving fans who don’t play on PC a chance to play this new strategy title. As playing on a console means players likely won’t have a keyboard and mouse of their machine, this version of Company of Heroes 3 comes with a custom UI, full controller support, and various console-specific features.
These new features include the Full Tactical Pause which offers console players a level of tactical control over the pacing while on console. This means players can think over their next movie properly without the pressure of doing it all in real-time.
In case you missed it, Company of Heroes 3 was released in February on PC, and it is the latest entry in the long-running strategy game franchise. While it’s still set in World War II, this game is primarily focused on the Mediterranean theater.
The game’s premise is described as:
Company of Heroes’ renowned boots-on-the-ground storytelling will bring players to a brand-new theatre of war, unlocking authentic new tactics, four distinct factions, and a wealth of untold stories from World War II. In single-player modes, the turn-based Italian Dynamic Campaign offers a sandbox-style gameplay experience with new levels of strategic choice, whereas the sweeping deserts of North Africa allow for a classic, narrative-led singleplayer experience. For players that enjoy their competitive action, CoH3 has a huge online multiplayer and co-op vs AI offer, with more factions, mechanics, and units than ever before.
Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition will be released on May 30 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
In Asia, players can pre-purchase the game’s digital version via the PlayStation Store from April 26, 2023. Meanwhile, the game’s physical pre-order will also be available depending on the country.
