In COH3, you control different squadrons of units and play either the Allies or Axis factions. In addition to maintaining battalions of units, you can also build and control vehicles and tanks. Much of COH3 is built around their building and cover system, making microing and positioning incredibly important in this top-down strategy game.

According to an update via the Company of Heroes Twitter, Company of Heroes 3 will now release on February 23. 2023. Originally, the game was meant to release on November 17, 2022. The game will be available on PC via Steam.

What Factions Will Be in Company of Heroes 3?
