When did you decide to bring Company of Heroes 3 to consoles? Does this affect the PC Edition?
Relic has a long history of delivering incredible strategy experiences on the PC. We knew we had to do the same for Company of Heroes 3 and launch the best game in the franchise’s history without any compromises. At the same time, we wanted to expand the audience for Company of Heroes 3 by bringing the game to console. At launch, both versions will be nearly identical, aside from the minor changes we outline below. In addition to that, Relic has tremendous support from our SEGA partner studios to ensure the Console Edition meets the high standards of our developers and our console players.
Will cross-play or cross-progression be available?
Currently, we are not planning to implement any cross-platform features for the Console Edition. This includes cross-play or cross-progression.
Will the controls and the game’s HUD be adapted for the controller?
Yes. We’ve been working hard internally at Relic and in conjunction with our partner studios at SEGA to ensure Company of Heroes 3 controls intuitively and responsively with a controller. We’ve also modified the HUD and UI to ensure navigating with a controller is easy and feels good. You can see this in action in our announcement gameplay video. It was also important to us to ensure that any changes to make Company of Heroes 3 feel good on console would not adversely affect how you play or control the game on the PC edition.
Will Company of Heroes 3 have Mouse and Keyboard support on console?
Yes, you can use a controller for both PlayStation 5 and Xbox or a compatible mouse and keyboard.
Will Company of Heroes 3‘s Console Edition be the same as the PC edition?
At launch, the two editions of Company of Heroes 3 will be identical with some minor exceptions:
- Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition will feature full controller support.
- Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition will not have an in-game Store or Challenges.
- Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition will not feature modding support.
Select post-launch content, cosmetics, or gameplay additions will come to console after being released on PC. We plan to bundle standout content into more robust expansions for Console Edition owners.
Did you move Company of Heroes 3’s PC Edition launch date to do work on the Console Edition?
No. As we noted when we originally moved Company of Heroes 3’s launch date, we did so to ensure we could release the game in the best possible state we could, while making sure it had the polish, bug fixes, and refinement necessary to live up to the high standards of our development team and our fans. A lot of the work for the Console Edition has been undertaken by a trusted development partner in close collaboration with our team, allowing Relic to focus on PC development while overseeing both editions of the game.
Will the Console Edition support 4K?
Yes, you will be able to enjoy the Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition in 4K quality.
Will Company of Heroes 3 be coming to any on-demand services?
