Company of Heroes 3 announced for 2022, play the Pre-Alpha Today!
The news hits like a grenade: Relic Entertainment and SEGA announce the release of Company of Heroes 3 in 2022 with a trailer and an early pre-alpha version that can already be played now!
Nine years after Company of Heroes 2, the hugely popular Company of Heroes franchise returns. Publisher SEGA and developer Relic Entertainment have chosen Mediterranean locations for the WWII setting of Company of Heroes 3, which will once again show why the series is so important to the (real-time) strategy genre. Sometime in 2022 we may strategically move our troops across maps. Or even before that, if you sign up for the pre-alpha today.
Company of Heroes 3, like Age of Empires IV, will be brought to life using Essence Engine V5.0, which promises beautiful effects, but also an improvement in sound. If you want to be enlightened about the technical advantages in detail, you should take a look at the IGN preview to get a taste of what to expect.
