This is a fan project, like the Lord Inquisitor was. GW has absolutely nothing to do with it!
Very Very Cool Indeed Indeed
Relic Entertainment’s campaign lead Brent Disbrow sat down with IGN’s Joe Skrebels to show new gameplay footage of the upcoming Warhammer 40.000: Dawn Of War 3 RTS. This chapter in the Dawn Of War series will feature some gameplay mechanic from the original Dawn Of War video game, such as base and unit creation.
Warhammer 40.000: Dawn Of War 3 will see the return of Eldar and Space Marines. Both factions will have access to colossal war machines that can turn the tide of battle. The Eldar are also going to get an ability that allows them to bring down a devastating laser beams. Space Marines will have orbital bombardment at their disposal.
As in the first game, players will be able to upgrade some members of the space marine squads to use different kinds of weaponry. Relic Entertainment will also return the ability to reinforce squads without creating new ones. Warhammer 40.000: Dawn Of War 3 will release sometime in 2017.
