New Dawn of War III “Prophecy of War” Trailer Will Melt Your Face

Sega and Creative Assembly have shared a new trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.

Featured above, the new “Prophecy of War” trailer showcases the faction leaders Gabriel Angelos, Farseer Macha, and Gorgutz as they fight through the grimdark future, while the mysterious Spear of Khaine draws them further into war. Alongside this conflict, Lord Kyre of the Eldar rises to power.

Here’s a passage to go along the trailer:

Fiery skies shall light the way
Blood shall spill over the wandering world
The spear of Khaine shall call the wayfarers
And the storm prince shall unite them.

A more sophisticated translation was provided by Gorgutz ‘Ead’unter: “it’s a race to the pointy stikk and you know what that means, don’t ya? It’s WAAAAGH!”

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is launching sometime this year, for PC.

    Looks like Starcraft 2.

  • Fenrir007

    They said they were mixing elements of the 1st with the 2nd one.

    Man, I really hope they go back to the original voice actors for this one.

  • Lord Vector

    Tell me about it! I absolutely love the voice actors from DoW 1 and all its expansions.

  • Meittimies

    Looks like a Starcraft 2 or a Dota 2 mod. They went the wrong way with visual design. You dont make video games about W40K look like the tabletop game with large head brightly colored figures, you should make the game look like the art in the codexes. Thats what all the players of the table game imagine in their minds when they’re playing it. The game better be gameplay-wise really damn good or I’m just going to skip it altogether.

    This is what the game should look like:
