Step into the nightmare of brutal galactic warfare with the Dawn of War III worldwide announce trailer!

Watch the battlefield come to life, and death, as you’ve never seen it before as Space Marines, Eldar and Ork slip ever deeper into the darkness of endless war.

According to Sega's press release, the new game "combines the epic scale of Dawn of War, with the customization and elite heroes of Dawn of War II", meaning the second game's more squad-focused approach has been scaled back somewhat.

In Dawn of War III you will have no choice but to face your foes when a catastrophic weapon is found on the mysterious world of Acheron.

With war raging and the planet under siege by the armies of greedy Ork warlord Gorgutz, ambitious Eldar seer Macha, and mighty Space Marine commander Gabriel Angelos, supremacy must ultimately be suspended for survival.

 

Gabriel Angelos is here too? awesome

UNLEASH THE GIANTS

Take control of towering war machines and tip the balance of battle in your favor with the biggest characters in Dawn of War history. Turn the tide with the mighty Imperial Knight (Space Marine), the clattering Gorkanaut (Ork), or the haunting Wraithknight (Eldar).

 

COLOSSAL BATTLES

Dawn of War is famous for its epic action and those immense clashes are back - but now they're off-the-scale. Wage war with massive armies across violent volcanic terrain or onboard battlecruisers travelling fast through space.

 

CALL UP YOUR ELITE

Take your battle plans to another level by deploying powerful collectible elite squads, each boasting their own special abilities and bonuses that will help you unlock and develop new attacking strategies to conquer your foes.

 

DESTRUCTIVE ABILITIES

Cause devastation on the battlefield with powerful super-abilities. Rain down total destruction on your enemies with the Space Marine's Orbital Bombardment, the Eldar's blistering Eldritch Storm or the Ork’s Rokks to counter your unsuspecting rivals.

 

THREE-FACTION CAMPAIGN

Learn what makes each force formidable through alternating missions. You'll soon come to understand the combat advantages of Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar and the rules of a universe with no heroes or villains… only war.

 

ONE ARMY TO RULE

Build your own universal army from the very first moment you are matched in a melee. Progress through battle after battle with loyal troops by your side across both challenging campaign missions and dominating multiplayer maps.

 

A NEW DAWN ONLINE

Your army will wreak havoc in online co-operative mode. Join the multiplayer community and forge new alliances - then turn the tables on your new 'friends' as they become foes in explosive, chaotic and competitive maps.

We have called for reinforcements from the Gothic Sector,

One unbreakable shield against the coming darkness

One last blade, forged in defiance of fate
Let them be my legacy to the galaxy I conquered
And my final gift to the species I failed

^ I am just happy relic is alive and working on something.

Sounds like its a mixture of 1 and 2. I would have preferred a straight sequel to 2 but I am still intrigued.

 

I would have liked a World in Conflict RTT approach as well.

 

Limited pool of units to call in within limited points pool. Line units can be reinforced / redeployed after losses but the tanks and elites are limited (to induct) and or can be lost if improperly utilised.

Game still looks good, the game-play is stock RTS with benefits towards players with good micro-play.

Dawn of War 3: inside Relic's biggest RTS yet

 

 

 

Dawn of War 3 is real and we've seen it. For the full scoop check out the next issue of PC Gamer, which comes with a free Steam key for Dawn of War 2 and eight pages on the demo I saw at Relic headquarters recently.

 

For now, let's take a direct look at what's new in the sequel, which aims to merge the best aspects of Dawn of War 1 and 2 into Relic's biggest, most colourful RTS yet.

 

You play as three races in the campaign

 

Three races have been revealed: Space Marines, Orks and Eldar. The campaign moves between factions from mission to mission as each army converges on the same planet to retrieve a mysterious weapon. All of the factions have their own collection of heroes, elites, super units and super abilities that you develop over the course of the story. Gabriel Angelos returns to lead the Blood Ravens, and he'll tee off against an Eldar Farseer and an Ork Warlord.

 

Big armies are back

 

The battle I saw was comparable to a large-scale Dawn of War 1 encounter. Dozens of units exchanged glittering laser fire on an icy world. Hammer-wielding heroes and huge war machines waded through the troops, obliterating Eldar Guardians with rockets, gatling guns, bolters, flamers and brutal melee strikes.

 

There's method to the chaos. The designers want Dawn of War 3 to be their most accessible RTS yet, and that means making battles easier to read. Laser fire clearly shows where damage is being directed, and effects such as the Assault Marines' superhuman leaps are carefully calibrated to stand out in the busy battlefield. The result is a a visual hierarchy of threat that, Relic hopes, will make huge clashes easier to read.

 

In aid of this, some close detail has been sacrificed so Dawn of War 3 can shine in large-scale encounters, and Relic's artists have taken more inspiration from the colourful paint jobs of the tabletop game. It's a step away from the dark doom-laden tone of the fiction, and the game looks fantastic in motion.

 

Bases return

 

Dawn of War 1 style bases are back. They produce your workaday line units such as Tactical Marines, heavy-weapon Devastators and Dreadnought walkers. As in previous games, you build power generators and capture requisition points in the field to acquire resources.

 

If your Space Marines are too lazy to walk you can load units into three drop pods and smash them into a fight to surprise and squash the enemy. This is a key part of the Space Marines' 'death from above' strategy, which also incorporates jump-pack powered Assault Marines and a giant orbital laser—more on that later.

Why not add more races if it's going to be an RTS that's going back to it's Part 1 routes (at least partially, especially if it was going Dark Crusade route). Would have hyped me more if Chaos was in. Eliphas the Inheritor was a very fun hero with a very sarcastic personality. Would have made for some hilarious interactions with the Space Marines, Imperium and Necrons (If the latter 2 were in and Space Marines and Imperium were in different sides this time). Also, felt that Eldar was one of the dullest races Warhammer 40k.

That's true, but I always felt that Chaos Space Marines were one of the core races of Warhammer 40k. After all, they are the greatest enemies in the franchise and their gods are the reason all the "good" races are on the brink of destruction anyway. After all, if SEGA can add the normal Space Marines in every game by default, then the Chaos Marines should also be in by default, not on some expansions or DLCs (As they did with 2). Maybe they can even expand Chaos further and show some of the Imperium citizens, Sisters of Battle and even other races such as Tau etc. getting corrupted. This could lead to a fight within their own and can make for a compelling story. After all The Dark Eldar are on the path of getting corrupted by Slaanesh.

 

Anyway, at least it seems that base building is returning this time, which I enjoyed a lot in Dark Crusade. It made all races unique with their ow culture and gameplay.
