You heard that right, a big Dawn of War series announcement is just around the corner…

Dawn of War 2 was released in 2009.  You will remember everything was left in limbo after THQ dies and SEGA picked up the 40K license from the carcass.  It looks like we will all have to wait till May 3 at 3PM GMT to see what is in store. Tick Tock Tick Tock!

Cross your fingers everybody!  Let’s hope it’s DoW3!

 

  • SIA

    Hell Yes!!

  • Shawn

    That would be pretty awesome. I’d also like to see another Space Marine game that continues Titus’ story.

    • Frank

      They tend to do Blood Ravens with the Dawn of War Series.

      • mike

        That’s why he said also.

  • Grimbuddha

    May 3 at 3? Obviously announcing part 4.

    • Erik Setzer

      3 and 3? Half Life 3 confirmed!!!

      (Someone had to do it.)

      • Damien Coté

        Beat me to it!

  • Xodis

    …..Im shocked but too scared to be happy just yet…ive been hurt too many times lol

  • Ronin

    Dawn of War….. PACHINKO MACHINE!

  • Sebastien Bazinet

    Please make the Last Stand mode even bigger this time!!!

    • SupraGenius

      It’s pretty clear they have interest in doing that. Dropping the Necron Overlord was a good way to test interest, and it went over quite well.

      • Sebastien Bazinet

        Yeah I just hope it’s stay Last Stand and does not become a PVP Moba thing which are all the rage right now. And yes I know 40K already has one

        • cudgel

          Not for long…..

  • SilentPony

    It looks like just a new Last Stand map…

    • Tyris

      From what clues do you draw this suspicion?

      • Severius_Tolluck

        Probably the last time they had an announcement was a necron overlord for last stand for DoW2. Nothing really suggests there will be a DoW3 either. We will just have to see what they do tomorrow.

      • SilentPony

        The clue that its just an island in the gif. Not a planet, or a Space Marine silhouette, or the Blood Raven symbol or anything that could indicate a new game.

        • knightsanguis

          They wouldn’t drop a teaser like this for DLC, especially DLC for a game that’s 5 years old now (and that’s just Retribution)

          • Loki Nahat

            they did for every single dlc addition to last stand, so …

          • There were… two. One was the Tau Commander, YEARS ago, and one was the recent Necron Overlord, which was celebrating the 4 or 5 year anniversary of Retribution.

            This is completely out of left field, and not an announcement made via Steam either (like the Necron Overlord was).

          • Loki Nahat

            hey let’s hope it’s not a god damn moba, but a proper game!

    • Nazdreg

      But the 3s?!!!

      • SilentPony

        The 3rd Last Stand map.

  • David ‘Gilly’ Gillam

    May 3rd, 3pm, hmm, I wonder what it could be.

    • Crevab

      3rd map for the Last Stand in DoW 2? :p

  • Joe Dom GA

    toal war Warhammer 40K dawn of war?

    • polyquaternium7

      One can dream, would like to see a whole sector as a strategic battle map, zooming in on star systems, zooming in on planets, conquering continents with massive armies. laying siege to hive cities, calling in orbital bombardments, Maybe someday, if we are lucky, but not anytime soon.

      • Haighus

        This would be a logical continuation from the DoW Soulstorm through to DoW2 system though. I would expect some degree of interplanetary travel as in 3. My least favourite part about Retribution was that the campaign was massively simplified and linear, as well as the progression being based around heroes not squads, so I hope it doesn’t go that way.

  • euansmith

    Blood Raven, ho!

  • Kevin Langmuir

    Brilliant, but hope they do something slightly different. Imagine Dawn of War: Horus Heresy 🙂

    • Sebastien Bazinet

      Or TURN BASED!

    • cudgel

      Oh my yes.

  • Secundum

    SPHESS MEHRENES! WE ARE TEH EMPRAHS FUREH!

  • Alpharius

    Man it’s a good year for GW video games. Battlefleet Gothic, Eisenhorn, Total War, now more Dawn? Just give us Space Marine 2 and we are really cooking with gas.

    • rednekkboss

      Bad year for my wallet. 🙂

      • Alpharius

        In the grim darkness of the future, there are no wallets!

  • Cooltrainer Ian

    THREE new races added to the game?!

  • knightsanguis

    By the Emperor, it’s finally happening!

  • Sir Astartes
  • mike

    Dammit America. It’s already time. Stop living like 13 hours in the past!

    • We’re not living in the past, you’re living in the future! Bloody time travelers…

  • Asmodeo Muschi

    FINALLY! Oh yea

  • Johnson Malarkey

    “At last, back to war!”
