Relic: no “major content” planned for Dawn of War 3 after it fails to hit targets

There will be no "major" expansion content for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III and the studio has turned to other projects, Relic confirmed to us today, despite intentions to the contrary discussed last year. The Games Workshop-themed strategy game was met with a divisive response due to its abandonment of real-time strategy mainstays in favour of more of a hero unit approach, in addition…

Make War Not Love 4: Sega’s cross-game non-Valentine’s event brings discounts and rewards

The Necron Are Joining WH40K: Dawn Of War II, Sort Of

Bloody Hell: Dawn Of War II – Retribution’s Surprise DLC

There might be no sign of any Dawn of War III - come on come on come on come on - but new-ish Relic owners Sega seem determined not to let the beloved Warhammer 40,000 strategy series lie entirely fallow. Last month they put out a new map for the first Dawn of War and today, four years after its original release, Dawn of War…

All 40,000 Dawn Of War Games Free To Try On Steam

By 2017, every human being on Earth will be developing a Warhammer 40,000 game. I suppose it's possible that at least one of those 7.125 billion titles will go on to be as beloved as Relic's Dawn of War series, but it does seem unlikely.If you're one of the few people yet to play a Dawn of War - perhaps because you've been too busy…

Waaagh! Dawn Of War 3 Rumblings/Hopings

At the very least, Relic are updating their Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War games to add Steam trading cards. That wouldn't be too exciting. It'd be nice that they - and new publisher Sega, who picked the series up after THQ sank - still care about the series enough to do that, but it's probably leading up to something, right? DoW 2 and all its…

Company Of Waaagh! It’s The Humble Relic Bundle

If we seem cynical and suspicious of the many Warhammer 40,000 games we've seen in recent years, it's because we judge them against the high-water mark of Relic Entertainment's 40k games. Dawn of War with its real-time strategising, Dawn of War II with its added action-RPG-ish flair, and Space Marine with its head-stomping are as good as we've had 40k in recent years. So huzzah!…

Dawn of War 2 Removes GFWL: The Unclean Is Purged

Burn the heretic! Oh, they already have. The latest game to throw off the absurd and malfunctioning shackles of the multiplayer infrastructure/DRM that was (and how good it feels to use the past tense) Games For Windows Live is Relic's stout RTS/ARPG mash-up Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2. The sting in this redemption song is the loss of LAN and direct connect support.

Purified: Dawns Of War Ditching GameSpy And GFWL

In the future of Warhammer 40,000, humanity cling desperately to faltering technology they no longer understands, knowing once crucial systems break they can't repair them and everyone will be doomed. Learning a lesson from all this, Relic is stripping out wonky old multiplayer tech from its WH40K: Dawn of War games, replacing GameSpy and Games for Windows - Live with warming Steam. And now I'm…
