The authors of Age of Empires 4 talk to 3DJuegos about their new strategy game.
Although the story has changed a lot in recent years there are still great games of strategy that remain exclusive to PC for one reason or another, and the Company of Heroes saga is one of them. But now that a new video game has been announced, and that it includes some exciting new features such as the tactical pause, is it possible that Company of Heroes 3 will end up adapting to consoles? Relic Entertainment does not rule it out.
We truly believe that CoH 3 is pushing the limits of what people expected from an RTS David littmanIn an interview with 3DGames, the executive producer of this promising strategy game has been quite open to the idea of bringing Company of Heroes 3 to consoles, while now, more than a pure strategy game, it is a action and strategy experience. “We want to reach as many players as possible,” David Littman told us shortly after enjoying the game on our team, as we told you in the Company of Heroes 3 impressions. “We really believe that CoH 3 is pushing the limits of what people expected from a real-time strategy (RTS) game. “
Relic highlights, above all that “hybrid experience” that Company of Heroes 3 raises, not only with a new campaign map that works based on turns, but also, the tactical pause that we can use during the combats. “Of course, the RTS essence is there for our most passionate fans. But adding the tactical pause and the turn-based campaign map together, we definitely think we now fall into the action and strategy category. And this is a genre that can work on console. “
Despite these words, Relic Entertainment makes it clear that the team is fully “PC-centric. But we are looking for ways to continue growing. And we believe that this is a game that could work on consoles, “adds Littman. We must not forget either that they are the authors of Age of Empires 4, which will be released later this year. Interestingly, in this case, when He asked them about the possibility of bringing the mythical Microsoft saga to consoles, they assured that it was a great challenge that they did not want to think about yet.
