We’re excited to bring you the largest update yet for Dawn of War III! Here’s a rundown of what’s included in the Endless War update:

  • Three new Elite units
  • Three new multiplayer maps
  • Five new Elite skins, including the Primaris skin for Chaplain Diomedes
  • New custom game options
  • Balance updates
  • Various bug fixes

Those elite units are as follows:

Eldar get a Wraithseer who commands psychic energies and can immolate foes with warp-fueled powers.

Orks get the incredible Lifta-Droppa Wagon, which in the video not only is capable of throwing enemies across the map (and some boyz lookin’ for a good scrap too), it can also send itself rocketing backwards as it fires its weapons, using its massive bulk to crush enemies.

And then of course there’s the Ironclad Dreadnought for the Blood Angels, who seems to be all about massive AoE attacks.

And then of course there are new maps, and a ton of updates. The patch notes are actually quite extensive–for those of you who are curious, here’s a peek:

  • Health and shields of non-Elite infantry increased by 30%
  • Buildable turrets (from doctrines) for all factions have had their damage increased from 7 to 13

    Blood ANGELS?

  • BrianDavion

    Can polish this turd all they want, it’s still a turd

    • GrenAcid

      It saddens me but I agree.
      Maybe next years will give us a competent dev who knows what 40k is.
      On the other hand there is Vermintide 2 coming up.

      • BrianDavion

        the problem isn’t “knows what 40k is” the problem is Relic doesn’t seem intreasted in making a RTS. we saw this with DOW2, where they loaded up on features from a complete differant Genre that happened to be popular at the time (a dev actually said they where cribbing from WOW) DOW3? they do it again, this time by cribbing features from the current genre thats really popular, a MOBA. the entire gameplay just works poorly. so the end result is a compelte mess with an identity problem. this of course might be semi forgivable if they really managed to capture the feel of 40k like no other game had, but yeah… no

  • Bigwebb

    Just let this game die already

    • Mike Forrey

      It’s almost there. Nothing can save this train wreck.

      • BrianDavion

        Maybe next time relic makes a MOBA they won’t try to charge 70 bucks for it

        • Mike Forrey

          They should probably not have tried to make it a MOBA and just married DoW 1 and 2 together. Instead we got this “game” that isn’t even remotely like either or even the TT game.

          • BrianDavion

            I agreed. people wanted DOW1 with improved graphics, gameplay and maybe a inventory advancement system like DOW2 had.

  • Troy Dean

    They keep adding all these additional units and guff, but they still haven’t put enough RTS in this RTS.

  • Calgar

    Now that the game is half off, could I get half my money back? That would be better than nothing I guess.

  • SB

    I bought a $300 graphic board just to play this game.
    Played beta and end up not buying it…
