Fans of the RTS franchise, Company Of Heroes, will have to wait a little bit longer to play the new game in the series as it has a new 2023 release date!
Sadly, you won’t be playing Company of Heroes 3 this November after all. This morning brings news that Relic Entertainment needs a little bit more time to polish the game and make it everything fans were hoping for. The good news, however, is we won’t be waiting much longer. The game has been set for a new February 23, 2023 release date.
Since the game was first revealed in July 2021, Relic has invited players to sign up to CoH-Development, a community platform designed to receive feedback on all areas of the game. A lot of their valuable feedback has already been submitted, processed, and in many cases, implemented. Some of these features and improvements are revealed today.
Relic has made distinct improvements to its brand-new Dynamic Campaign Map, such as updating its new supply system, implementing a more aggressive AI, and seeing faster travel across the map through seaport and airport enhancements.
The studio has added a stronger focus on visual grit and details during battles, by improving shader technology and finetuning. Additionally, Relic has made significant changes to the overall lighting of CoH 3.
Relic has enhanced moment-to-moment gameplay by making changes to the camera positioning and providing clearer mini map information. Improvements are also being made to the HUD layout and the overall theming of the UI.
Seeing players experiment with the Multiplayer Pre-Alpha in November 2021 really helped the developers make significant improvements on Battlegroups, their upgrade trees, units, and call-in abilities.
Relic has reviewed and improved parts of the voice-over lines to ensure they are authentic to specific characters and their native accents featured in the game.
Adjust those calendars!
