Relic Entertainment and SEGA have announced that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III will release sometime next year for PC.
Building on 12 years of explosive gameplay, Dawn of War III combines the epic scale of Dawn of War, with the customization and elite heroes of Dawn of War II. The result is a best-in-class edition giving players the rich strategic experience, stunning visuals, and catastrophic surprises that theyâ€™ve come to expect as Relic brings the franchise into the modern era.
â€œThis is the Dawn of War that fans have been waiting for,â€ said Stephen MacDonald, the titleâ€™s Executive Producer. â€œOur biggest units ever? Check. Giant orbital lasers? Check. Base-building, epic heroes, huge battles, itâ€™s all in there. Get ready for the biggest Dawn of War yet. For the Emperor!â€
Through the announce trailer, which can be seen above, Relic revealed the devastating forces of Space Marines, Eldar, and Orks locked in battle, slipping ever deeper into the darkness of endless war.
â€œThis announcement is a big moment for all of us at Relic, and at SEGA,â€ said Justin Dowdeswell, General Manager at Relic. â€œWeâ€™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.â€
Dawn of War III will be a landmark release for Relic as its the first main title produced entirely as a SEGA-owned studio.
