Endless War Returns in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

Posted: 10:39AM

The time has come once again to wage endless war, as Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III has been officially announced. Developed once again by Relic and this time published by Sega, following THQ's bankruptcy part out, Dawn of War III sees the Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar fight on a galactic scale. Little else is known right now about the game, except those three races are joined by a fourth race that Relic is keeping tight to its chest. Maybe we'll see the Tyranids or the Forces of Chaos once again, or perhaps the Tau or Necrons instead. Relic does promise Dawn of War III will be its biggest game yet, with base-building, epic heroes, gigantic units, and huge battles. It looks to bring us back more to the style of the first game, while also keeping in aspects of the second game, too.

Battles should be easier to follow, with laser blasts clearly showing where the fights are happening and finer unit details easier to pick out. It also looks to have more of a tabletop flair with bright unit colors, so no more ultra grimdark gameplay here. The previous entry was fantastic, but sometimes it was hard to see what you were doing, so here's hoping Dawn of War III corrects that. Hero units return, with them taking on the role of individual heroes (like Gabriel Angelos), elite squads like Assault Terminators, or even super units like an Imperial Knight walker (a one-man version of WH40K's massive Titan units). As mentioned before, base-building is back, producing your everyday troops to wage war and capture requsition points, work units for power generator building, and even drop pods for the Space Marines to load into and deploy across the battlefield. Nothing says death from above quite like a drop pod full of Space Marines crashing into a horde of Greenskins. Orbital laser cannons, a revamped cover system, and more await us in the battlefields of endless galactic war.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III has no release date just yet, but it is real and it is coming.

Hands up, pants down. This will be EPIC! Considering that there are Eldar I vote for Necrons to make an appearance. However I think that Blood Angels chapter storyline is beaten to death (nomen omen) already. Why not to explore less known chapters? Blood Ravens have about 80% of total W40K games overall. A bit monotonous if you ask me.
