It seems like we were right about yesterday’s tease after all because Dawn of War 3 was just officially announced by Sega and Relic Entertainment. About damn time. Along with the announcement, we also got a very cool new trailer featuring some very atmospheric music and narration by a mysterious Eldar. The debut cinematic trailer for Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3 also showcases epic battles between the Blood Ravens, Orks, and Eldar, complete with massive amounts of dead bodies and blood everywhere. In short, this is everything we could have hoped for. Check out the trailer below. Past that, you can read more details straight from the official press release.
Dawn of War III immerses players in the escalating brutality of galactic warfare, where they will lead elite hero units and colossal armies to victory, or oblivion. Powerful super-walkers will tower over the front lines as screen-shaking assaults blister the battlefield in an all-out, over-the-top spectacle worthy of the iconic Games Workshop® Warhammer 40,000 universe.
Building on 12 years of explosive gameplay, Dawn of War III combines the epic scale of Dawn of War, with the customization and elite heroes of Dawn of War II. The result is a best-in-class edition giving players the rich strategic experience, stunning visuals, and catastrophic surprises that they’ve come to expect as Relic brings the franchise into the modern era.
“This is the Dawn of War that fans have been waiting for,” said Stephen MacDonald, the title’s Executive Producer. “Our biggest units ever? Check. Giant orbital lasers? Check. Base-building, epic heroes, huge battles, it’s all in there. Get ready for the biggest Dawn of War yet.”
Unfortunately there’s no exact release date just yet but you can be sure that we’ll be writing all about it once we learn more. For the Emperor!
