Relic has announced that Company of Heroes 3 will be getting its first major update, Operation Sapphire Jackal, for free tomorrow, March 28. Operation Sapphire Jackal introduces weekly/daily challenges for you to complete, cosmetics, and more.

The challenges can be done in either multiplayer or co-op, and you'll be tasked with doing stuff such as "Kill 50 vehicles with anti-tank guns" and "Gain 50 veteran ranks with Wehrmacht infantry." Operation Sapphire Jackal also makes quality-of-life and gameplay adjustments, a new voiceover for the Ghurka Infantry, updates to the unique player color option to spot enemies and allies easier, and more.

In addition to all the new changes, you'll be able to pick from a wide range of cosmetics that'll allow you to customize your troops in multiplayer and single-player modes. There'll be a blend of premium content that you can buy with real-world money and earnable content that you can unlock by playing the game.

To purchase premium items, you'll need either War Bonds or Merit. War Bonds can be obtained by playing the game, or they can be purchased. On the other hand, Merit can be earned by completing challenges, and you'll be limited to what you can buy with it.
