A new Dawn of War 3 trailer has been released by Relic Entertainment, the studio behind most of the Dawn of War RTS games, and in it we’re shown the huge battles that will be fought in the third entry in the Dawn of War series, coming later this year.
The trailer gives us a bit of plot exposition, showing that all three factions have come to the planet Acheron in order to obtain the “Spear of Khaine”, a powerful Eldar weapon. Acheron is known as the “Wandering World” according to a prophecy, and it appears that the three sides may not have much time to get the spear before Acheron disappears again.
In addition to the three factions: the Blood Ravens Space Marines, the Eldar of Biel-Tan led by Farseer Macha, and the Orks of Gorgutz ‘Ead’unta’s horde, players will also have to contend with another faction of Eldar, in the form of a group led by the Autarch Lord Kyre.
It’s been a good number of years since we got a Dawn of War game, especially since Dawn of War 2 had the last three entries. They were good entries, yes, but still, it’s nice to get into a new adventure with the characters we know and love.
From what we’ve seen in the new Dawn of War 3 trailer, the scale of Dawn of War 3 is going to be beyond anything we’ve seen before, being far larger and more epic than any of the Dawn of War games beforehand. With all three of the leaders fighting against one another, and all sorts of super units performing devastating tricks, and huge armies of units fighting one another, Warhammer 40,000 fans and strategy fans alike will probably be having a great time with Dawn of War 3 when it finally comes out sometime this year.
