Today, Sega and Relic released an absolutely heretical trailer for Dawn of War III:
It is four minutes of the Space Marines getting their asses handed to them by the Orks and Eldar. No other races confirmed yet, but when they’re announced, I’m sure we’ll see footage of them beating on the Emperor’s Finest.
In all seriousness, all we have is just that it’s called “Dawn of War III” and that there’s Space Marines, Orks, and Tau. Not much else is available to us at the moment. It’ll likely be an RTS, given the franchise’s history, but we have no actual gameplay footage to tell for sure.
But I’m glad that it’s happening, no matter how much heresy is in the trailer. Praise the Emprah. Dawn of War III will be covered in the next issue of PC Gamer, for more information, check out their article here where they touch on the announced races and mechanics for the game including the brand new cover system implemented by Relic.
UPDATE: This article initially claimed the trailer showed the Tau when it was in fact the Eldar. We apologise for the confusion, but they’re all filthy Xenos in need of purging to us.
