It's happening: Warhammer Dawn of War III

Dawn of war II and all it's expansion is probably one of my all time favorite games. I thought for sure after THQ went under that we'd never see another Dawn of War game but here it is.

Edit: Put in gamers hangout because they haven't said what systems it will be on yet.

Supposedly, and awesomely if true, it's going to be more like Dawn of War than Dawn of War II. I mean II was good, but the first was better in many ways.

I was a fan of the cover system in DOW2, I believe they cut it from 3, it may be a while before I pick it up if that's the case. :(

I was as well and they have dropped it.  Now there is some sort of bubble cover "simplification".  Seems like a step back to me as well but their argument seems to be that the detailed cover of DOW2 made sense for small unit tactics but with 3 they're going for much larger battles and micromanaging that level of cover in real-time would be cumbersome.  I'm not sure I agree but for me while a regression it's not enough to kill my enthusiasm as a whole.

I concur, but I was looking for a reason to get back off my potato after breaking down and selling my last rig BUT this isn't it (or at least not yet, I'll wait for the reviews)

I really like DoW II, when I got into the DoW II, the original already aged quite badly in my opinion, I couldn't get into DoW seemed like a step backwards...

 

I really hope the  new DoW III is more like the second one.

There is going to be a multiplayer open beta in the coming weeks:

Really though. It's a week before the game is going to be released. Let's call it what it actually is. A playable demo to boost hype. They won't be making any changes to the game based on feedback they receive from the "open beta" a week before launch.
