Relic Entertainment and SEGA Europe today announced Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, the long-awaited third instalment of the critically-acclaimed real-time strategy franchise. Dawn of War III promises to immerse 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.”
Dawn of War III aims to combine the epic scale of Dawn of War, with the customization and elite heroes of Dawn of War II. The result is described as 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.
Stephen MacDonald, the title’s Executive Producer, said:
“This is the Dawn of War that fans have been waiting for. 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. For the Emperor!”
Justin Dowdeswell, General Manager at Relic, added:
“This announcement is a big moment for all of us at Relic, and at SEGA. We’re setting the bar for what we can achieve, and showing players what they can expect from us in the future. This is just the beginning.”
