Video: See how Relic is bringing the PC battlefield of Company of Heroes 3 to consoles

It’s no easy task to translate a PC real-time strategy title to a console, but Sega and Relic are doing just that with this month’s Company of Heroes 3.

In good Company

How many console RTS’ have there been over the years? Not all that many, is the answer. And it seems like the ones that do make that leap, take their time and carefully translate their control schemes.

From the looks of things, that’s just what Relic has done with Company of Heroes 3: Console Edition. The port of the recently released PC title is coming up fast, and the development house has produced a little video to show fans what’s it’s cooking up.

Lock, load, and get ready to drop directly into the battlefield from your couch with Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition. Relic’s storied real-time strategy franchise is coming to consoles for the first time ever – adapting the RTS controls to give players full command of the battlefield with controllers. In our latest dev diary, Relic dives into the process of transitioning historically PC-only titles to consoles and the features players can take advantage of as they work to liberate Italy and fight through the deserts of North Africa.
