Eight years after its second entry, a new Company of Heroes game is in play Relic Entertainment. Announced today by publisher Sega, Company of Heroes 3 will take a series of real-time strategic strategies about World War II to Mediterranean theater. As before, the emphasis is on commanding infantry detachments and individual tanks, but a novelty in this game is a strategic map that will allow you to decide how to approach the Allied invasion of Italy. How you plan your moves there will determine the forces you have available in the real-time battles that follow.
Relic also introduces a pause button that will allow players to stop action and set commands in order for all their units. In practice, it seems that the campaign for one player will be played similarly to one of them Total War games Creative Assembly, which is not too surprising considering that Sega owns both studios.
Company of Heroes 3 should appear in late 2022. Meanwhile, fans can sign up to play an early version of the game by linking their Steam and Relic accounts. In addition, the entire franchise is on sale at the Valve storefront, allowing you to get a second game just for fun. $ 1.10.
