Relic Entertainment and Sega announced a Company of Heroes 3 Multiplayer pre-alpha is available to anyone who registered and will be played later today. Given that the game will not be launched until the end of 2022, there is still nowhere for a specific RTS action brand to experience the game.
The amount of content you can try before the game’s official release is also very impressive: the pre-multiplayer alpha kit will include four maps of Italy, which you can use to test multiple game modes (including cooperative modes). op vs AI, competitive PvP and small-scale vs AI). Playable factions include the United States or the National Defense Forces.
