With excitement rising for the upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, Sega and Relic Entertainment have released a new video that introduces us to some of the locations players will be fighting over in this third installment of the popular RTS franchise. Watch the new trailer below…
During the development of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III massive landscapes have been created so that there is not just the opportunity for large scale conflicts but also to enhance gameplay through strategic depth and destructible environments.
The video is hosted by Art Director, Matt Kuzminski and Lead Environment Artist, Tristan Brett as they discuss the inspiration for the following locations:
- Cyprus Ultima: Cyprus Ultima has a medieval style befitting of the war-ravaged life the people in the 41st millennium live.
- Cage World is a completely alien world where the landscape is constantly changing, this means the ground can literally shift beneath your feet, so you can never be sure where the battle will take you.
- Starfort: This gothic battle station is a fine example of Imperium technology. Massive structures tower over each battlefield with large scale weaponry on display.
- Acheron: A landscape where seas of lava clash against mountains of snow and ice. Glaciers serve as frozen tombs for the battles of the past, and as the stage for some of the largest battles you’ll face in Dawn of War III.
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is certainly looking to be a very promising journey into the dangerous world of the 41st millenium.
