Get Ready for May: Company of Heroes 3 is Coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S

Company of Heroes 3, the latest installment in the World War II real-time strategy series, will soon be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, following its successful launch on PC earlier this year. Developed by Relic Entertainment, the game is set in the Mediterranean and North Africa theatres of war where some of the bloodiest battles took place between the Allied and Axis forces.

Console Port Features

The console version of Company of Heroes 3 will come with custom user interface, full controller support, and special features that will allow gamers to play at their own pace. The user interface has been modified to suit controllers, and the tactical pause option from the PC version has been included in the console version too.

Gameplay Features

One of the new and exciting features of Company of Heroes 3 is its destructible environment. Each level features an environment that can be destroyed or used to gain the upper hand in a skirmish. Falling debris can damage enemies, rubble can become cover for troops, and pathways can be opened or closed to hinder the enemy’s advance. The new tactical pause feature allows players to freeze the gameplay, accurately plan their attacks, and queue those actions up to see them unfold in real-time.

Relic Entertainment on Console Performance

Relic Entertainment has put a lot of thought into how the controls could work on controllers. “It fundamentally changes the way we approach the design of the game when we start thinking about consoles,” said Justin Dowdeswell, the game’s executive producer. “We tend to find touch with a mouse and keyboard, that’s very high-friction, very exacting, and with a gamepad, we’re trying to remove some of that complexity so the game’s easier to get into.”

Release Date and Availability

Company of Heroes 3 will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S from May 30. Fans who have been eagerly waiting for the release of the game on consoles can soon delve into the Mediterranean and North Africa theatres of war and take control of their troops.

Price and Pre-Order Bonus

The game is currently available for pre-order on PlayStation and Xbox stores for $59.99. Players who pre-order the game on any platform will receive the “Company of Heroes 3 Southern Fronts” DLC, which consists of additional missions, new units, and an exclusive skin for your vehicles.

Player Feedback on the PC Version

Players who have already had a chance to play the PC version of the game have been impressed with the new gameplay features and the ability to plan their attacks accurately. One player shared their experience, saying “The tactical pause option changed the way I play strategy games. It allows me to think before taking action and helped me win battles I found difficult before.”

Company of Heroes’ Legacy

The Company of Heroes franchise has been around for more than a decade, with the first game in the series released in 2006. Since then, the series has gained a massive following and has become one of the most beloved real-time strategy games in the market. Company of Heroes 2, the previous game in the series, was released in 2013 and still has a strong player base today, highlighting the legacy of the series.


Company of Heroes 3 is set to be one of the biggest real-time strategy games of the year, with a loyal fanbase eagerly awaiting its release on consoles. With its enhanced gameplay mechanics and console-friendly user interface, it’s sure to be a hit with fans of the genre.
