Sega and Relic, developer and publisher of the Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War series, just confirmed that the third installment of the game will arrive sometime in 2017 to Windows PCs. Dawn of War III is a highly anticipated game, coming seven years after the previous release.
As Sega mentioned in the official announcement post, Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War III is going to be a combination of the best parts from both previous Dawn of War titles. Although Sega said that the game will arrive in 2017, the exact release date is still unknown.
“In Dawn of War III you will have no choice but to face your foes when a catastrophic weapon is found on the mysterious world of Acheron. With war raging and the planet under siege by the armies of greedy Ork warlord Gorgutz, ambitious Eldar seer Macha, and mighty Space Marine commander Gabriel Angelos, supremacy must ultimately be suspended for survival.
Take control of towering war machines and tip the balance of battle in your favor with the biggest characters in Dawn of War history. Prepare for more epic action as you wage war with massive armies across landscapes full of volcanic terrain or on battlecruisers in space. This universe has no heroes or villains. Through alternating missions you’ll soon learn the combat advantages of Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar.”
Along with the announcement, Sega also released an epic trailer for the game, revealing some features and aspects of the game. The game will feature “super walker” units which executive producer of the game, Stephen MacDonald, described as “their biggest units ever.” It is also said on the announcement page that this installment is going to be ” the biggest Dawn of War yet,” so get ready for something massive.
