Relic Entertainment and SEGA Monday announced the official release date for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. It's the third installment of the real-time strategy franchise based upon the tabletop game by Games Workshop and it's scheduled to be released on April 27, 2017.
Dawn of War III is currently available for preorder on Steam in three formats: Collector’s Edition, Limited Edition, and Standard Edition. The Collector’s Edition will include a premium disc book, a lenticular art card, the official soundtrack, a replica of the Godsplitter Daemon Hammer, three mounted cloth faction banners and the Masters of War Skin Pack. The Limited Edition will include the premium disc book, the lenticular art card and the official soundtrack. The Standard Edition is, of course, just the game software.
All editions pre-ordered before the game’s release will include the Masters of War Skin Pack, a collection of three cosmetic skins for Dawn of War III’s Super Walker Elites – the Dark Queen skin for Lady Solaria (Imperial Knight), the Ghost Seer skin for Farseer Taldeer (Wraithknight) and the Big Kustom skin for Beauty (Morkanaut). Players who do not pre-order will still be able to deploy the three Super Walkers in their original forms.
“We’re thrilled to tell fans know that they don’t have to wait much longer to return to battle,” said Philippe Boulle, Game Director of Dawn of War III. “The whole team can’t wait to bring back Dawn of War, bigger and better than ever."
Dawn of War III places players in the escalating brutality of galactic warfare, where they will lead elite hero units and colossal armies to victory, or oblivion. Powerful super walkers will tower over the front lines as screen-shaking assaults blister the battlefield in what Relic Entertainment says is "an all-out, over-the-top spectacle worthy of the iconic Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 universe."
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is rated "M for Mature" by the ESRB.
