It’s Time For WAAAAAGH!!

Dawn of War III is almost here! We’re so excited to finally release the most spectacular Dawn of War title yet on April 27. Before we do that though, there’s one more thing that you guys have been asking for since we announced…

The Dawn of War III Multiplayer Open Beta will run from April 21 at 10AM PST until April 24 at 10AM PST! Register now at 

This is your chance to go hands on with Dawn of War III’s multiplayer mode – a showcase of what makes this most intense, chaotic, and strategic Dawn of War yet! The beta will provide access to all three factions, as well as a selection of maps, Elite units, and Doctrines from the full game! More details about what’s included in the beta are available here!

That’s not all! You may have seen the trailer for the Masters of War Skin Pack, which comes free with all pre-orders for Dawn of War III. As a special treat for those who play the Open Beta, players will be able to equip and try out all three skins included the Masters of War Skin Pack during the beta weekend. Get your feet wet with the Dark Queen skin for Lady Solaria (Imperial Knight), the Ghost Seer skin for Farseer Taldeer (Wraithknight) and the Big Kustom skin for Beauty (Morkanaut). Unlock the Masters of War skin pack for free when Dawn of War III comes out by pre-ordering on Steam, or your local retailer!


Dawn of War III is right around the corner, and we can’t wait for everyone to jump in and try it out before release with the multiplayer open beta! Sign up for access when it launches on April 21 over at, and be sure to keep up with all things Dawn of War by following us on social!
