Relic Entertainment and SEGA have posted an announcement this evening that Company of Heroes 3, the RTS game that was supposed to launch next month, has been delayed to February 23, 2023. The developers stated, “there are still bugs to squash, pixels to polish, gameplay to adjust and feedback to address.” This game 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.
While the 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 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.
Company of Heroes 3 will now launch on Steam on February 23, 2023 and to find out more about the game, head over to CompanyOfHeroes.com.
