What's New In Company of Heroes 3?

Company of Heroes developers seem to be making some immense changes to the franchise that players will enjoy due to familiarity and the new and improved features being added to CoH 3. This RTS is about taking control of the opposition in an intense real-time battle, all while using wit and impeccable tactics to outsmart and outplay enemies. 

The newest addition to the CoH series will showcase new flanking maneuvers to help players hit the enemies where it hurts and gain the upper hand. Players will also have a chance to experience brand new Infantry breaching mechanics, where players can now easily eradicate the enemy's garrisons. Those looking to gain a better line of sight can now become well educated on the game's different elevations and use those to their advantage. 

 
 

A new theater will also be added to the game, where players can experience war within the Italian mountain passes, coastlines, and scorching deserts within North Africa. With each environment comes its very own set of challenges. Fighting within the vast mountains will take an entirely different strategy than fighting in the open expanses of the desert. Using different vantage points within the mountainous region will be vital while taking a more stealthy and careful approach in the desert would be the best way to take the upper hand. 

Company of Heroes 3 will also introduce a never before seen faction, the Deutsche Afrika Korps. This change will add more diverse factions and units to the game, meaning CoH3 will hold the largest number of faction launches within the franchise. The developers have also added the ability to call in many specialized Ops with the new army customization mechanics.
