In a strange but welcome surprise, SEGA recently announced that its excellent WW2 real-time strategy franchise, Company of Heroes, would be coming to console for the first time with the advent of Company of Heroes 3. Today we got a look at the plucky British Forces, who fight with the aid of their Commonwealth allies.
One of four factions available from launch, the British Forces are (appropriately enough) incredibly obstinate on the defence, featuring all kinds of units and abilities that will allow them to weather the storm, such as being able to "dig in" artillery pieces and anti-tank guns. Once the enemy is left reeling, they can counterattack with powerful infantry such as Royal Guards, Gurkas and Commandos.
Company of Heroes is currently listed for launch on PS5 sometime in 2023 and will feature UI and controls completely redesigned for console. Will you answer the call when the time comes? Sign up in the comments section below.
Loved the originals on PC, be interesting to see how to plays on console as it gets really hectic trying to manage everything.
The controls will be key.
I’m assuming this game will play better with a mouse attached

How do these games play, are they like say a xCom game where it’s turn based or a command and conquer type game where you have to both defend and attack within the level? I’ve never played these games before
Command and conquer, it’s real time strategy where you have to build a base, conquer and hold territory, and manage and gather resources. There is a game available on PS store now called Ancestors legacy about Vikings that is a medieval replica of COH
@BusyOlf yeah, as oriion said, but coh3 will add a pause mode where you can put in orders too.
@Jtheripper sweet, I probably never have gotten in to Frostpunk and They Are Billions like I did without the pause feature.
