There are epic competitions with elements of cheeky creativity, and then there's this celebration of Company of Heroes 3 coming to console, which is a diorama depicting a chaotic assault from the game, literally, wrapped around an Xbox Series X, and you can win it.
While we wish we were running this competition, which is valued at $10K dollarydoos, this one is being handled directly by the game's local PR and distributor, Five Star Games, on its Twitter and Facebook and kicks off tomorrow.
The diorama depicts the tense scene of a US paratrooper squad landing on a semi-destroyed church to return fire on a Wehrmacht tank before it’s overrun by German forces. Entries are open to any resident of Australia over the age of 15, and the competition will run over Five Star Games’ social media channels starting on Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition launch day, Tuesday 30th May, and closing at midnight on Tuesday 13th June (all times in AEST).
Entrants will be asked to submit their best real-life application of the game’s Tactical Pause feature. In the game, Full Tactical Pause allows players to pause the action, read the situation, queue commands, and unleash devastating precision plays.
Darren Macbeth, Managing Director at Five Star games, had this to say: “We wanted to create something special to celebrate the game's epic battles and stunning visuals. This custom diorama, featuring a Series X console at its core, captures the intensity of Wehrmacht tanks and US paratroopers clashing in a dramatic scene straight out of the game. With painstaking attention to detail, we've brought a Company of Heroes battlefield to life in miniature form.”
Company of Heroes 3 launches tomorrow on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S .
