Warhammer 40k: Dawn Of War 3 Shows Full E3 Demo

In the grim darkness of the far future...

In the grim darkness of the far future, there are only Warhammer posts on RPS. Jim is interred within the Golden Throne, his withered remains a beacon guiding humanity through the darkness of the web. As for Kieron, well... traitors get what they deserve.

Adam has already told you what he chatted about and saw of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III [official site] during E3 in June. But what if Adam's a heretic? What if he's under a dark influence? You'll have to watch the RTS's E3 demo for yourself, now that Relic have released it in handy YouTube format:

This isn't the first-first time Relic have shown this demo but it's here in relatively high quality and without picture-in-picture guff.

I like it, bearing in mind it's an E3 work-in-progress demo. E3 demos are designed to be flashy, trying to ease in and win over spectators who might never have heard of the game, and Relic do mention that it is fancied up for effect. And yeah, this mission is a bit of an attack-move blob but it does seem nicely paced to allow a narrator to explain what's happening on-screen as new units and systems are introduced. E3 demos, y'all. Maybe I'm blinded by how fancy Imperial Knight Solaria is.

I realise that saying "No, don't trust what Inquisitor Adam says, take a peek with your own eyes and you'll see things as they truly are" is exactly the sort of thing an insidious heretic might say. Heck.
