Review: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

I've been playing Warhammer tabletop for nearly 20 years, and I've seen what feels like hundreds of games based on the property come and go. Some stick with me, like Total War: Warhammer. Others fall by the wayside and are forgotten like Fi...   read

Relic releases a dev diary for Dawn of War III ahead of its open beta

I get the feeling that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is going to be divisive to the fan base. A lot of people seem to be complaining about a supposed "dumbing down" of mechanics or how there isn't anything new on offer. I don't necessar...   read

Dawn of War III's multiplayer is a bit underwhelming

I can’t say I’ve ever been a particularly big fan of real-time strategy games' multiplayer portions. I know that sounds crazy (seeing as how StarCraft is almost a national sport in Korea), but I like devising tactics and executi...   read

It won't be much longer now before we'll be sending our dispensable [Space Marine / Ork / Eldar] fodder into battle with reckless abandon. Relic Entertainment is prepping Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III for a worldwide PC release on Monda...   read

Game of Thrones should get the Warriors treatment next

It's a good time to be a Warriors/Musou fan. For us in the west, we just got our hands on Berserk and the Band of the Hawk, which according to Chris is pretty darn good. Later this month, our friends over in Japan get their first crack...   read

They just keep making Warhammer 40,000 games: Inquisitor - Martyr is hitting alpha soon

My first Warhammer 40,000 game was Fire Warrior, which pretty much sums up the historical cyclical nature of the series in the gaming world. Games Workshop kind of just hands out the license to anyone, diluting the franchise in the sense th...   read

Necromunda is the next Warhammer 40K adaptation

I'm half writing this so I'll have something to jog my memory of the many Warhammer 40,000 video games in production, but yep, there's another adaptation in the works. This one, the turn-based tactical RPG Necromunda: Underhive Wars, is bas...   read

Review: Space Hulk: Deathwing

Despite being a big tabletop gamer, I don't have any particular affinity for Warhammer 40K. Like most people, I found Space Marine to be an entertaining (if shallow) dalliance with the universe, but I never was able to shake the fact that I...   read

Space Hulk: Deathwing looks like one of the better Warhammer 40K adaptations

Streum On Studio is onto something cool with Space Hulk: Deathwing, its squad-based shooter adaptation of the Space Hulk board game. There's a sense of weight and intimidation to the hulking Terminator armor that other games have sorely mi...   read

The Eldar look like a real nuisance in Dawn of War III

To date, Relic has focused on the Space Marine side of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, but that's only one of the playable factions in the campaign. We'll also get to command the resourceful Orks and the oh-so-pesky Eldar. It's now the l...   read

It's been a long wait, but Dawn of War III is shaping up well

It's no secret that I've been happy about Relic's revival of the Dawn of War series amid the countless other Warhammer 40,000 video game adaptations materializing on a now-yearly basis. There's so gosh darn many of 'em! And, aside from a dr...   read

Relic has 'a hunger' for more Space Marine, but a sequel seems unlikely at this point

Relic Entertainment is a studio best known for its strategy games, such as the Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series, but that didn't stop the developer from knocking out of the park a project outside its typical wheelh...   read

See Dawn of War III's return to big battles and base building

We've had some clips here and there, but this narrated mission (an extension of what was shown at E3) is our first proper look at the gameplay of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. Watching this 12 minutes or so of footage, it's apparent R...   read

Dawn of War III will focus more on big battles and base building

Not only was that teaser building up to Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III as many of us had hoped, but the reveal trailer itself was badass. I'm so happy. Even if it is Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar again for the three-sided story campaign...   read

We are ready for another Dawn of War game, but is Relic Entertainment? I sure hope so! This teaser video and the series' official site both point to an announcement happening tomorrow at 7:00am Pacific. May 3 and Dawn of War III? Could it ...   read

Finally, we have some Space Hulk: Deathwing gameplay to look at

I've told you before that I know very little about Warhammer, whether it's 40K or the regular universe. But that doesn't mean I'm not curious about Streum On Studio's (the team behind E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy) Space Hulk: Deathwing. A ...   read

Five years later, Dawn of War II: Retribution adds the Necron Overlord

Five years of Dawn of War II: Retribution. My goodness. It doesn't feel like it has been then long at all, but then, anniversaries like this have a way of sneaking up on me. Relic and Sega were keeping track, at least. While there's no surp...   read

Space Hulk: Deathwing looks really cool

In recent years, a bunch of different games have drawn from Games Workshop properties. Some were good. Many weren't. I have long since learned to not get too invested pre-release. It's just easier that way. But there is one title I've kep...   read

Oh hey, a Warhammer 40K game that looks okay

Games Workshop isn't the most discerning of license holders. Ever since the demise of THQ, the company has allowed just about anyone to make a video game based on Warhammer 40,000. The situation has reached the point where Destructoid boss...   read
