Dawn of War 3 trailer takes you on a tour of 4 of the game’s environments

2 Mar

These four Dawn of War 3 tilesets look impressive, and there’s a story behind each one.

Dawn of War 3 developer Relic has released a new showcase that gives us a look at four of the main environments in the game, and the intent behind each of their designs.

The video is narrated by art director Matt Kuzminski and lead environment artist Tristan Brett and it takes us through Ultima, Cage World, Starfort, and Acheron.

The goal with Cyprus Ultima was to create sort of a future-medieval world, with a particular style of architecture. Cage World, on the other hand, was made to look as alien as possible, with a constantly shifting landscape and very clean designs.

Starfort is kind of the authentic Space Marine environment, with massive cathedrals and fort weapons, and a grimdark look fit for an imperium station. Finally, Acheron is built as a nature-infested world of snow and lava where everything is seemingly out to get you.

New Dawn of War 3 Trailer “Prophecy Of War” Shows Three Factions In Action

17 Feb

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. See Also: Dawn of War […]

Dawn of War 3 gets suitably epic story trailer, confirms Spear of Khaine is involved

17 Feb

The conflict wrapped up in the story of Dawn of War 3 becomes clear.

Relic has released a new trailer for Dawn of War 3, the first in a long while. It’s called Prophecy of War and is very much story-focused.

The prophecy in question is cited at the start of trailer, as Farseer Taldeer outlines the main story setup that will bring all three races to war. The Spear of Khaine is the impetus behind the events this time around, though not much else is known.

Farseer Taldeer’s prophecy is ominous though, as these usually tend to be. Gabriel Angelos, Farseer Macha, and Gorgutz are all here, and they all seem to be fighting enemies within their ranks, as well as each other.

Alongside the new trailer, Relic also put out a call to action themed around each of the three factions. These videos show a bit more gameplay, and highlight what the Space Marines, Eldar, and Orks are each fighting for.

Dawn of War 3 trailer reveals a bit about how the game’s story will be told

20 Dec

Learn more about what goes into creating the story and cinematics in Dawn of War 3.

The story in the Dawn of War games has always been an integral part of the experience, and Dawn of War 3 looks to be following in the same footsteps.

In the latest developer diary, Dawn of War 3 game director Phillip Boulle and art director Matt Kuzminski talk in-depth about where each of the three factions fits in the game’s story. The video goes on to outline the key elements of the game’s cinematics as well, and the message each of them sends.

We also learn a little bit about the setup that brings the Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar to the fight this time around. There are different motivations for each faction, though not much about those has been revealed.

As for the cinematics themselves, art director Matt Kuzminski refers to them as “animatics”, indicating they may not be the traditional pre-rendered CG we see in a lot of games.

Dawn of War 3 footage is our first look at the Ork faction

16 Dec

Dawn of War 3’s Orks look as intimidating/amusing as ever.

Dawn of War 3 developer Relic has showed off the Ork faction for the first time in new footage, as part of IGN First.

In the video above, we get to see the angry, greenskined mob pit their mostly rusty, scrappy mechanical units against the technologically superior Eldar. The video is made up entirely of gameplay footage, with no commentary. A couple of their units are on display, alongside some flashy attack animations.

We also get to see a little bit of their swarm tactics, which no doubt will come in handy when playing as them.

Dawn of War 3 extended E3 gamplay footage shows Space Marines in action

7 Jul

An extended look at the Space Marine mission from E3.

Back in June, we got to see some Dawn of War 3 gameplay at E3.

It was only a few brief minutes and in German, so you’ll be pleased to know that there’s an extended gameplay video with game director Philip Boulle talking us through the mission.

“What you’re about to see is a condensed version a longer mission balanced to show you the core features of gameplay,” says community manager Kellie Goggins in the intro, noting that the footage is pre-alpha with under-powered Eldar that get roundly trounced by the Space Marines.

Dawn of War 3 – take a look at the first gameplay footage

13 Jun

E3 brings us the first gameplay footage of Relic’s Dawn of War 3.

Dawn of War 3 – take a look at the first gameplay footage

Dawn of War 3 was first revealed a few short weeks ago. Now that E3 is underway, we get to see some gameplay.

The footage wasn’t shared through official channels. Instead, German site PC Games Hardware is hosting it as part of a preview.

The video is less than four minutes-long, and all commentary is in German, but we’ll take what we can get. According to translation from Reddit user Scrial, Dawn of War 3 will do away with the previous game’s cover system.

Though base building will return, don’t expect defensive structures and fortifications. Individual unit abilities are still a big focus, and so are large battles.

Take a look.

Sweet Dawn of War 3 cinematic stills are just begging to be wallpapers

Sweet Dawn of War 3 cinematic stills, just begging to be wallpapers

See that beautiful big image above? That’s just one of a stack of gorgeous stills Sega sent over today, taken from the amazing Dawn of War 3 cinematic trailer.

If these had arrived during my shift I would have shrunk them down ruthlessly and then crunched them even further, but Steph, who has the patience of a saint, has uploaded them in HD glory at 1920 x 1080, with file sizes in the 1MB range. She spoils you, and also has a better upstream link than me, apparently.

In order to prevent this page taking approximately 4,000 years to load, I’ve popped them all in a gallery below. It’s not ideal for mobile, but on desktop the thumbnails link to the full size files so you can just click save as without having to bring them up in your browser first.

These are gorgeous and will make wonderful wallpapers (or whatever), but if you’d like to see what the game itself looks over we do have some Dawn of War 3 gameplay screenshots.

Dawn of War 3 will release in 2017. Does anybody want to talk about how freaking rad the announce trailer was? I’m only on the periphery of Games Workshop fandom but even I could see it got something so, so right about Space Marines. I have never wanted to jump right into that lore as badly as I did after watching that.

Dawn of War 3 may still be a ways off, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a small peek.

Dawn of War 3 was announced yesterday with a very moody, epic trailer. The video was all CG, and judging by the fact that the game is due for release in 2017, it me be a while before we see gameplay.

We can, however, have a look at a couple of early in-game screenshots. Even though base-building will make a return in the sequel, the screenshots only show units going head-to-head.

It’s the Eldar against the Space Marines. See the shots below, courtesy of PCGamer.

Warhammer Dawn of War: “strong possibility” of new game, says Relic

23 Apr

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War may make a come back at some point, according to developer Relic Entertainment. The team is currently polishing off Company of Heroes 2, then who knows what might come next?

Speaking with Eurogamer, Relic’s Quinn Duffy suggested that both Warhammer and the studio wil ride again, stating that there is, “a strong possibility we’ll all be working together again on Dawn of War.”

It’s unclear how the licensing rights stack up, given Relic’s sale to Sega after the first THQ auction, but this seems to suggest that both parties are keen on keeping the Dawn of War series alive.

PC Gamer adds that before THQ’s collapse, president Danny Bilson confirmed that Dawn of War 3 was in the workds, and that it would be “a much larger strategic component”, as well as “sort of MMO-like.”

What do you think? Should this happen? If so, what form would you like it to take? Let us know below.
