Today, May 3rd 2016, a new era begins on the Battlefield! Relic Entertainment and SEGA Europe Ltd. just announced the arrival of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, the third chapter in the acclaimed real-time strategy franchise. The patience of the fans will be rewarded!
Dawn of War III drops the player into the escalating horrors of galactic warfare, where they can lead elite heroes and huge armies may into victory or destruction. Impressive super-walkers raise over the front lines, while screen-shaking attacks plague the battlefield in an all-out, over-the-top spectacle the iconic Games Workshop® Warhammer 40,000 universe is worthy of.
Dawn of War III builds on 12 years of explosive gameplay and combines the epic scale of Dawn of War with the customisation and elite heroes of Dawn of War II. This results in a comprehensive edition with rich strategic experience, stunning images and catastrophic surprises that players may expect now that Relic brings new life to the franchise.
“This is the Dawn of War our fans were waiting for,” said Stephen MacDonald, Executive Producer of the title. “Our largest units ever? Check. Huge orbital lasers? Check. Base-building, epic heroes, large-scale fighting, it’s all in there. Get ready for the biggest Dawn of War ever. For the Emperor! “
In the announcement trailer that appeared today on the official Dawn of War III YouTube channel, Relic revealed the destructive forces of the Space Marines, Eldar and Orks slipping ever deeper into the darkness of eternal war.
As earlier volumes published before Relic was acquired by SEGA in 2013, Dawn of War III is a historic title for Relic: the first to be produced entirely as a SEGA studio.
“This announcement is an important time for everyone here at Relic, and SEGA,” said Justin Dowdeswell, general manager at Relic. “We set the standard for what we can achieve, and show the players what they can expect from us in the future. This is just the beginning. “
