Dawn of War 3 First Gameplay Blends the Best of Previous Games

Dawn of War 3 led off the PC gaming show today, giving fans the very first look at gameplay. While only a taste of the extended demo scheduled to come later this month, the footage introduced plenty of new features to the RTS series.

Speaking on stage, developer Relic discussed Dawn of War 3 is really built around combining the best of the two previous games. Base building and larger battles return from the first game, along with the refined mechanics of the second. Hero Gaberial Angelos is also returning as the protagonist for the Space Marines.

New features involve a Drop Pod Mechanic called Death from Above and an orbital bombardment laser, an endgame special ability for the Space Marines.

The full demo will premiere June 24. For more on E3, keep checking back right here on Twinfinite.
