Dawn of War 3

I don't think we've dedicated a thread to it since the original announcement one, and the game IS releasing in under 2 weeks I had expected it to get more attention in the White Dwarf, but I'm guessing it might be in the next one...


Anyway - Recent screenshots and videos show the game's shaders were (IMO) much improved from the initial footage.

The shaders were fixed, things still seem a little shinier than Dawn of War 1, but definitely looking grimmer than before. It's very easy to tell which unit is which.
The animation is DEFINITELY fixed (the moves on that Wraithknight!)
Voice actors... not quite as fixed, Alec Newman as Gabriel Angelos instead of Dobson reprising the role, but there's probably a reason for it and while changing voice actors is always a pain, I'm willing to see what he does with the character.

Who' s up for a game when it shows?

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

My copy is pre-ordered and i'm looking forward to getting stuck in. I too am unsure about Gabriel's voice change but nothing to be done about it I guess.

And i'd be very happy to play anyone who wants a game.

Note, everyone can sign up for the Open Beta which happens this week. Runs the 21st - 24th, should at least give you a taste of the Multiplayer to see if it's to your taste

Thanks for the heads up on the open beta. I look forward to trying it, though there is not much that could stop me from picking it up day 1. Visually, it is a bit closer to StarCraft II than I would like, but the action still looks so great.

THEY TOOK THE GRIMDARK OUT OF MY 40K! And what's with Gabriel jumping 20 feet into the air...grrrr. I'm going to roll around in some fluff to take away the pain.

This is what I think of turning DoW into a MOBA. I have over 200 hours on DoW2, so one might say that I was never going to enjoy DoW turning into a MOBA with SM essentially becoming as killable as Gretchen.


It turns out that Chaos has their own band...

I fail to see what part of DoWIII strikes you as a MOBA. I mean I am still on the hedge about this game myself. but from the playtroughs and lets plays from reviewers I cannot see much of any MOBA components.

Played it a little on my buddy's rig, and it feels like a lifeless, generic RTS. I honestly see no reason why anyone would play this over Starcraft or one of Relic's other offerings.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

I plan to get it and all of it's DLC in a couple years for 10 bucks like I just did with DoW2
