For The Emperor

The Youtube channel for Dawn of War, the epic strategy series set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, had been teasing a major announcement. Well, today that announcement is live.

Dawn of War III is real and will be available next year. Relic will be handling the development, as it did for the last two games. This quote from the press releases should make fans of the series very happy:”combines the epic scale of Dawn of War, with the customization and elite heroes of Dawn of War II.”

The trailer shows off a massive cinematic battle between Orks, Eldar, and Space Marines. The units fighting should look very familiar to fans of the past two games. Executive producer Stephen MacDonald 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!”

There is no official release date yet though I’m fairly confident there will be news at E3.
