Time to pull out the big guns.

For players who are interested in playing Company of Heroes 3 on their new Steam Deck, you're in luck! Similar to titles like Command & Conquer and Age of Empires, Company of Heroes 3 follows a real-time strategy gameplay style that asks you to pay close attention to the map and battlefield. Considering this, the game manages to create an enjoyable experience for players using the handheld by supporting a 21:9 aspect ratio, allowing for an ultra-wide view of the map. This gives aspects such as the notifications on the upper left corner much more room rather than cluttering the screen.

Does Company of Heroes 3 play well on Steam Deck?

There doesn't seem to be any frame rate or performance issues when playing Company of Heroes 3 on the Steam Deck. It is important to note that the since the right trackpad is automatically configured for the mouse, it can be a little difficult to actually place your cursor where needed. However, this is a fix that could be amended as community members release their own button layouts.

It is also important to note that the game seems to be locked at 30 frames per second, regardless of what settings you choose. This is due to the fact that the Steam Deck utilizes a quad-core CPU, though it is very possible that a patch will be released that would no longer limit the FPS.
