Company Of Heroes 3 Is Deploying Onto PS5 And Xbox Series X|S In May
The World War II real-time strategy game arrives on new platforms on May 30.
After launching earlier this year on PC, Company of Heroes 3 will be ported to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S on May 30. Developed by Relic Entertainment, this is the latest game in the World War II real-time strategy series and is set in the Mediterranean and North Africa theatres of war that saw some of the bloodiest battles waged between the Allied and Axis forces.
For the console version, Relic says that players can expect a custom UI, full controller support, and special features that allow them to play at their own pace. The user interface has been modified for controllers, and the optional tactical pause option from the PC version will be ported over.
This gameplay feature allows players to freeze the gameplay, accurately plan their attacks, and queue those actions up to see them unfold in real-time.
On GameSpot's sister site Metacritic, Company of Heroes 3 has a Metascore of 80 from 61 reviews. Critics have praised the game for its authenticity, attention to detail, and use of new technologies to make each battlefield feel distinct.
Each level features destructible environments, and while this has been a hallmark of previous games in the series, in Company of Heroes 3 this creates even more danger and opportunities to gain an advantage in skirmishes. For example, enemies can be damaged by falling debris, rubble can create cover for troops, and pathways can be opened or closed using this new system.
