A new video has been released for Company of Heroes 3 which gives us a peek at what can be described as the game's most radical and unorthodox army. This is the fourth and final trailer that showcases the various factions in the game. This time, it's about the Deutsches Afrikakorps and their arsenal of mobile and mechanized weapons and vehicles. Known for their capability in the North African deserts, this army is available in both single-player and multiplayer modes.

Before we continue, you can watch the video below:

Meet the Troops

The Afrikakorps is a good choice for those who prefer to play aggressively and want to keep the pressure on their enemies. This is because it obtains a great benefit from the synergy of the specialized infantry and armored vehicle roster. Players who choose this faction can use Half-track to deploy troops quickly to either sustain the offensive or respond to new threats. There's also the versatile Panzer III which is considered as the workhorse tank of the army.

That's not all since the Afrikakorps has the Armored Reserves system. With this, players can deploy the Tiger Tank and other heavily armored options. When in the harsh deserts of North Africa, this army can rely on their vehicle-towing capabilities to reposition their anti-tank Flak 36 88mm cannon or repair damaged tanks.

Like other factions in the game, the Afrikakorps also come with their own range of supporting Battlegroups to take on unique battlefield scenarios. The Italian Guastatori, for example, are clad in all-black uniforms and when combined with deadly flamethrowers are sure to strike fear into the hearts of their enemies. Meanwhile, the Italian Combined Arms Battlegroup allows players to field some impressive units including:

  • Semovente da 75/18 Assault Gun
  • Bersaglieri infantry
  • Carro Armato M13/40 Light Tank

Company of Heroes 3 is coming to PC on February 23. Pre-order is now available with the Digital Launch Edition having the base game plus the Devil's Brigade DLC Pack and a Legendary Pioneer title and profile border. There is also the Digital Premium Edition which has the base game and these:
