The third installment of the Dawn of War
series will transport you to the far reaches of the war-ridden galaxy, where you will take command of one of the iconic armies of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A mysterious and incredibly powerful weapon known as The Spear of Khaine
has been discovered in the lost planet Acheron and Space Marines, Orks and Eldars converge there to fight and take control of the ancient artifact.
Dawn of War 3 is a real-time strategy title where you will build up your army and try to achieve the objectives assigned on your mission, what usually translates into the complete obliteration of the opposing forces. You will build up your base and gather resources to summon all kind of characteristic troops of your respective army or to upgrade them and make them even more powerful. Then you will command them through a map to attack and try to achieve your goals.
The game follows the pattern of the other Dawn of War titles, with each of the armies being able to summon up to three elite units that are incredibly powerful compared to the average troops of each army. Each army is commanded by a character that old players will recognize from previous Dawn of War games. Marines are represented by the Blood Ravens chapter, commanded by the legendary Gabriel Angelos. Eldar forces follow the guidance of Farseer Macha. And the ork horde is led by the infamous Warlord Gorgutz. Each of the respective armies features iconic troops and many brand new abilities and mechanics that promote different gameplay styles matching each of the races: Space Marines are resilient and have great firepower and tactical versatility, Eldar forces are specialized and mobile, and orcs are a lethal horde with huge numbers.
Dawn of War 3 introduces also a new way of customizing your army to adapt it to the playstyle you prefer with the Doctrines
. You will be able to choose up to three different Army Doctrines, that will modify some of your basic units in certain ways that can be game-changing: Webway Holo-field
makes eldar webway gates project a stealth field around them, Scout Strike
grants marine scouts increased damage when they fire from cover, and Slice ‘Em
adds slow and damage over time effects to the Defkopta’s Buzzsaw Blitz ability.
You can also assign doctrines to your elite units, one per unit to a maximum of three. Those are divided into two types: Command
. Command Doctrines take effect when a certain elite unit is assigned to an army and Presence Doctrines take effect when the elite unit with the ability is in the battlefield. They grant passive bonuses or modify specific abilities to make your units more deadly.
With improved graphics, a new storyline, lots of customization options, and many surprises Dawn of War 3 takes the best from its predecessors to merge tactical real-time strategy and Warhammer 40,000 lore into a perfect combination that will make the delights of both the fans of the tabletop miniature game universe and the RTS genre.
