Are you a fan of Company of Heroes and eagerly awaiting the next game in the series?
As fans, we anticipate some amazing new features and interesting tweaks that we want to see in Company of Heroes 3. Read on to find out what we are wishing for!
Introduction to Company of Heroes 3
Company of Heroes 3 is an upcoming real-time strategy game developed by Relic Entertainment and published by Sega. Set in World War II, it is the third installment of the Company of Heroes series, a spiritual successor to Relic’s “Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War” games. Initially announced in August 2019, Company of Heroes 3 will bring gamers into a vast strategic wartime landscape where they must command two different factions – the Axis and Allies – in order to succeed.
This highly anticipated game will offer players intense team-based combat with large scale epic battles that span both land and air. With unrivaled depth, realism and immersion, gamers will be immersed in the fog of war as decisions made on the battlefield become deeply personal experiences for each individual army commander. Players can expect randomized elements like distribution points and ammunition drops that add variety and replayability to missions as well as large scale maps with intricate terrains that affect unit tactics during key tactical moments on the battlefield. All these features combine together to make one immersive experience that will challenge even the most veteran players.
Is Company of Heroes 3 Coming
The release date and available platforms for Company of Heroes 3 are still unknown, but there has been speculation that it could come to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S in the future. Currently, there is no confirmed information regarding when the game will be released. Given that its predecessor–Company of Heroes 2—is still receiving regular updates eight years after its original release date; it’s very possible that Company of Heroes 3 could follow a similar trend.
It’s also unclear whether publisher SEGA plans on sticking with a traditional digital-only platform strategy or introducing a physical release. The last installment in the series, Company of Heroes 2, was released as both an online-exclusive digital download and a limited physical edition. However, if the game comes out as planned sometime in 2021 or beyond, it is safe to assume that digital downloads will take center stage over discs or other physical media. Additionally, players should expect to take advantage of cross-platform progression so their campaigns and experience can travel with them wherever they decide to go.
Expectations From Company of Heroes 3
Company of Heroes 3 is still in development, but fans are already eagerly awaiting the game’s launch. A sequel to the award-winning Company of Heroes franchise, it’s sure to bring even more intense strategy and battlefield tactics for players. While there’s not a huge amount of information out about Company of Heroes 3 yet, there are some key aspects that we’re sure will be included.
Expectations from Company of Heroes 3:
- Strategic & tactical combat – The core gameplay revolve around utilizing strategy and tactics to defeat enemies on a simulated battlefield. In-depth unit management, morale systems and resource management will be important features that replace traditional RTS elements of base building and resource gathering.
- Factions & Units – Players must choose their side and customize their armies with a wide range of historical factions featuring different gameplay styles. Each faction should have access to a variety of units including infantry, tanks, aircrafts and artillery units as they battle through huge environments on land, air or sea.
- Realistic battles – Expect an immersive combat experience as any battle could be the defining moment for both sides with realistic physics engine and path finding technology dynamically affect every engagement between forces on their path for victory.
- Living Battlefield – Experience next level battlefield immersion with living environment with destructible architecture involved in every conflict as weather effects can have an impact on every aspect from movement speed to weapon damage output altering the course of combat at anytime.
When it comes to Company of Heroes 3, many fans are hoping for the game to take a step forward in terms of gameplay. Here is a list of some gameplay features that long-time fans want to see implemented in the next installment.
-Unit Customization: Allow players to customize their units with upgrades, skins, and different loadouts. This would add depth and complexity to the game while allowing for more varied strategies.
-Factions: Give each faction unique units, troops and special abilities that will force players to develop new tactics on the fly when dealing with different opponents.
-Skirmish Mode: Take control of individual units in separate skirmishes and objectives instead of taking control of an entire army. This would be great for practice runs as well as helping players gain a nuanced understanding of each unit’s strengths and weaknesses.
-Modding Support: Enable mod support so that gamers can create their own content for the game or tweak existing maps or units in interesting ways. This gives extra value to the game as it will keep it fresh even after its launch date has passed.
-A Focus on PvP: Make sure that there is a wide range of competitive maps, balanced heroes available for 1v1 as well as team battles ( 2v2 or 4v4). Crafting an enjoyable competitive experience would make Company Of Heroes 3 an exciting title worth coming back to again and again even after all single player content has been exhausted.
Visuals And Graphics
The visuals and graphics of Company of Heroes 3 are incredibly important in order to make the game stand out from other real-time strategy games. As such, we would like to see major visual improvements over its predecessor, Company of Heroes 2. For instance, better textures among all elements on the map with enhanced focus on frosted winter vegetation in terms of possible interactive elements (burnable trees, snow drifts that tanks can get stuck in). Additionally, more realistic lighting should be implemented along with bigger maps to allow for longer range engagements and tactical decisions. These upgrades should provide a great deal more spectacle and make it easier for new players to distinguish different units at a glance.
The Company of Heroes franchise is renowned for its immersive storylines and we expect that the recently announced Company of Heroes 3 from developer Relic Entertainment will continue this tradition. The plot-driven nature of the game’s single player campaign gives us the opportunity to experience a narrative that has depth and staying power, beyond two-dimensional skirmishes. We would love to see professional writing talent contribute to creating an emotionally stirring tale as well as believable characters, with heroes that we can support both in story and gameplay. We can also look forward to custom-built cinematics that bring key moments in the story to life in vivid detail. We would appreciate it if there was continuity between the existing titles and this new installment – such as familiar faces returning or settings revisited – but at the same time we anticipate an entirely new conflict altogether. There are numerous possibilities from WWII factions still unexplored, which could provide a wealth of choice for Relic when it comes to developing historical events into thrilling combat scenarios. Whether it’s a dramatic introduction in Russia’s Warrior or battle tactics or further commando missions during World War II on multiple fronts, there is plenty of source material for endless battles with ever evolving strategies for winning campaigns.
Multiplayer mode is a crucial component for any successful strategy game, and Company of Heroes 3 will be no exception. We expect to see a variety of multiplayer modes that appeal to gamers of all skill levels. A few potential modes include:
-Ranked Play: An intense, competitive environment with the opportunity to climb leaderboards and challenge other players online.
-Campaign Co-Op mode: A co-op game that puts two or more players in control of a faction as they battle against increasingly challenging AI opponents.
-Team Battles: Players can form teams to create more balanced matchups and work together as they fight for domination over the battlefield.
-Skirmishes: Casual battles for when players just want to jump in for some fast-paced, low stakes combat.
-Custom Game Options: The ability to customize games according to personal preference with specific rules and strategies designed by the players themselves.
By ensuring each player can find a game mode that fits their gaming style, Company of Heroes 3 will provide an engaging experience from beginning to end.
Modding And Customization
Modding and customization have become integral parts of many strategy games and Company of Heroes 3 should be no exception. Already in the previous games, players were able to utilize mods that gave them more control over the game’s units, map packs, etc. This time around we would love to see a robust modding system that would give us unparalleled levels of customization when building armies, setting up and playing maps, etc. The ability to customize the look and feel of your army, ranging from the type of vehicles you are using (tanks, FOR SCOUTS AND OTHER UNITS) colour schemes for individual types of troops which you deploy on-field (green for infantry, yellow for tanks etc.) and integrating custom skins or textures applied to various units could allow players to truly express their creativity within Company of Heroes 3. In addition to this it would be great if mods could be imported or exported with relative ease between friends or even across various platforms (Steam/GOG). Mod support has long been a staple within the Company of Heroes franchise and it’s about time that we get those options back both for those aspiring modders out there but also those who want to experience different looks without having to go near all the nuts & bolts involved in assembling a full-blown mod.
