Dawn of War III – Latest patch adds modding tools and campaign autosave

Relic will released a new patch for Dawn of War 3 tomorrow and has revealed its complete changelog. According to the release notes, this new patch for Dawn of War 3 will add modding tools and Steam Workshop support, will add autosave functionalities for the game’s campaign mode, and will bring various balance tweaks.

Moreover, this patch will make it possible so that vehicle health upgrades will apply to player-made structures, will decrease Power cost from 60 to 50 for buildable turrets for all factions, and will tweak suppression so that it does not stack with other sources of suppression (but the highest value of suppression will override the other sources).

This patch will be auto-downloaded from Steam tomorrow, and you can view a portion of its changelog below (for more details about the unit balance tweaks we strongly suggest visiting the game’s official page).
