Platige Image Recreates World War Missions in Action Packed 'Company of Heroes 3' Trailer

Platige Image has just issued a trailer for the latest instalment of the hit strategy game 'Company of Heroes 3.' The live-action trailer premiered on The Game Awards, 2022s most-watched game industry award show. 

Developed for Relic Entertainment, Inc., this exciting new trailer announcing the console version of Company of Heroes 3 is presented in four distinct sections. The first part presents the exit of the so-called 'fox holes' and the infantry strike on the town. Then, the action shifts to a naval strike performed by the main characters. Next, spectators are taken to skirmishes played out in the narrow streets of the Italian coastal town occupied by Axis forces. The final scene depicts the climactic destruction of the German Panzer tank. “We had little time to show all these sequences, which forced short, dynamic yet perfect shots,” says Tomek Suwalski, director. 

Platige Image is one of the leading studios producing cinematic trailers for games. Their portfolio includes top global publishers like SEGA, Ubisoft, Activision, Smilegate, and CD Projekt Red. Long experience with Relic Entertainment a Canadian giant of the computer game market and 'Company of Heroes' series creator - as well as SEGA Europe Limited meant that the trailer production was not only another professional challenge but, as you can tell from the atmosphere on the set, a potent mixture of passion and pleasure.

"That was yet another opportunity to work on this project and the second live-action trailer. While creating materials for the previous parts, we explored the brand nuances and deepened our historical and military knowledge of World War II, which made our work a bit easier." comments Tomek Suwalski. 

In addition to the authentically portrayed soldiers and their outfits, the trailer also features historically accurate props and military vehicles. You can admire computer-generated 3D models of Panzer, Churchill, and Sherman tanks, P-47 Thunderbolt aircraft, and many more. “Since this is a historical production, we naturally drew inspiration from the past. Based on the photo and video archives, we detailed each piece of armaments and vehicles and recreated them to look like originals,” remarks Bartek Kmita, VFX supervisor responsible for graphic elements. 

“Relic and SEGA entrusted Platige to deliver a live-action trailer of this magnitude thanks to our long history of collaborative development. Once again, we delivered a highly cinematic and artistic trailer, which, despite the increasing production challenges is, in our opinion, even better than the previous ones,” notes Hanna Drewek, producer. 

'Company of Heroes 3' is the latest in a series of strategy games set in the realities of World War II. The premiere was announced through a sneak-peek cinematic trailer produced by Platige Image. The trailer director, Tomek Suwalski, got the Young Director Award at Cannes for the Metro Exodus trailer: Artyom’s Nightmare. The 'Company of Heroes' trailer combines live-action with VFX and is a creative interpretation of actual missions and events that occur throughout the Company of Heroes 3 narrative campaign.
