This sequel to one of the best tactical RTS games and WW2 games is going to be the most ambitious the series has ever seen, going all out with a new campaign layer, a new setting, and a long-running development cycle (four years and counting) that’s been conducted in close consultation with the fans. There’s only one catch: you’ve got to wait until late next year – at least for the finished game.
Officially Company of Heroes 3 is pegged for a ‘2022’ release, but if you want to try out the pre-alpha build that’s currently doing the rounds, you can get access to it right now until August 2. All you need to do is sign-up (for free) via the official website and link your Steam account. This build is being used as part of the ‘CoH-development’ program – a community collaboration initiative powered by Amplitude’s Games2Gether platform and similar in purpose to what Relic has done with the Age of Empires community.
