Warhammer 40K real-time strategy game gets a launch date

Dawn of War 3

Sega announced today that real-time strategy game Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 3 will be released on April 27.

The Windows PC game — based on Games Workshop’s morbidly violent Warhammer 40K universe of space battles — is being developed by Relic Entertainment, also known for the Company of Heroes series of World War II real-time strategy games. Previous titles in the Dawn of War series were released to general acclaim in 2004 and 2009.

Dawn of War 3 features base building and overhead-view strategic deployment of Space Marines, Eldors and Orks as they fight for terrain and for resources.

Each race has its own strengths and weaknesses, as well as special abilities. Players can also construct special super units that cause massive damage to regular grunts. You can learn more about the game in our feature preview from E3 2016.

You can watch Polygon's impressions of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 3's multiplayer game in a video later this week.
