Dawn of War III will feature massive landscapes for you to fight over, and the newest trailer shows them off.
Dawn of War III was first announced back in May of 2016, and since then we’ve seen some gameplay footage, and a recent trailer showing off the playable factions. Today, Relic is showing off four new environments where you’ll be waging war in a new trailer. It features Art Director Matt Kuzminski and Lead Environment Artist Tristan Brett walking you through the new areas.
The official descriptions of the environments from Sega’s press release are:
- Cyprus Ultima: Filled with details and history, Cyprus Ultima has a medieval style that expresses the war-ravaged way of life for people in the 41st millennium.
- Cage World: A true alien environment, Cage World’s ever-evolving landscape means the ground can literally shift beneath your feet, so you can never be sure where the battle will take you.
- Starfort: With massive structures towering over each battlefield, the scale of the weaponry on display in this gothic battle station is the ultimate in Imperium technology.
- Acheron: From first glance, where waves of lava clash against mountains of snow and ice, it’s clear that the elements aren’t all that’s at war on Acheron. Home to nothing but violence, the beautiful glaciers serve as frozen tombs for the battles of the past, and as the stage for some of the largest battles you’ll face in Dawn of War III.
There’s still no firm release date for Dawn of War 3 beyond a vague “2017.” Hopefully we’ll hear more from Relic soon, but until then, we’ll just have to keep our desire to fight for the Emperor under control.
