Default Dawn of War III

The announcement of Dawn of War II: Retribution was a very nice surprise for all but THQ have blindsided the fans with yet another 40k announcement. Retribution, the first DOW II to feature Xenos campaigns, will also be the last of Dawn of War II. Once Retribution is released we can expect DOW III anywhere from 18 months to two years afterwards.

Heres hoping that Dark Eldar are finally made playable.

There is also some talk that DoW III might be released as a Free-To-Play title:

Urgh. Sounds crap.

All I can say is that I hope they return to a Dawn of War Style of gameplay rather than the crap they have currently.

The Metamap was okay, but personally, I'd rather see something more along the lines of Total War: 40K myself.

It took me a few months to get into DoW II after buying it, but once I started playing it, I grew to enjoy the new format.

It is odd not having resources to generate, and the absence of multiple tactical squads and Armor is a weird, but I really enjoy the RPG aspects. Changing equipment loadouts and selecting different squad members is fun and addictive.

Never a truer word said.

I want to play an RTS 40k not a fecking kill team game. I want hundreds if not thousands of units on screen.

I'm for the DOW2 gameplay over DOW1. The RPG aspect opened up a whole new level of depth and fun to the game. The origional DOW was great, but alot of the time it became a grindfest and rinse, kill and repeat... which just got boring after a time. Really, I'd like to see something of a combination between DoW: Dark Crusade and DoW2 for DoW 3...

I seccond B&K, I didnt even buy DOWII. The whole reason 40K is awsome is because it is EPIC!!! (emphasis, dramatic echo) the first DOW kicked ass in that respect, sure you hit the cap but then you got a baneblade or a land raider etc, shit just kept getting bigger! I took one look at DOWII and died a little inside. I can handle loss of buildings. Thats an RTS mainstay but if you dont experiment you dont get new good stuff right? But the scale... oh the scale of the thing...

That and no fucking IG!

/incoherent rant

Anyway, I figure this is only good news, and by the sound of it even if they keep controll at a lower scale they are going for a more epic setting, feal, and whatnot. Either it will me DOWII the MMO or it will be somthing new that can either go wrong or right, at least we have the chance in there to get somthign good.

And hey if it fails I'll just keep playing DC like I've been doing this whole time.
