Dawn of War III, Mastering Pre-Orders

Posted on 06 Mar 2017 by

That’s right you dregs, time to start saving! THQ have just announced three pre-order packages for DoW III, available from the 27th of April.

As can be expected from any premium title these days, Sega are looking to cash in on the DoW III hype before the game is released. Now don’t get me wrong, I know the attraction of owning a premium copy of your favourite themed game, with all the bells and whistles that announce “YOU are a true fan of the franchise”. I am sorely tempted to get those Master Skins myself, however, even with a game that looks as good as DoW III you can never tell how good it is just from press releases…

Wait for reviews…

That’s all I’m saying, have a little patience, but because I’m not a complete hypocrite, and because it’s your money, here are the details of the three packages THQ are offering:

Standard Edition – £39.99

  • The Standard edition comes with extra digital content, including; The Masters of War skin pack, and a Company of Heroes 2 skin bundle (if bought through Steam). The Masters of War skin pack is showcased in the trailer above, and includes exclusive skins for the three largest war machines found in the game.

Limited Edition – Unknown price

  • Incredibly, I can’t find a price for this anywhere, obviously when Sega updates with a release price, we’ll update here too. As well as the Master of War skin pack, the Limited edition also contains; the official soundtrack, a lenticular card, and a premium disk book.

Collector’s Edition – £99.99

  • As well as everything in the Limited edition, the Collector’s edition also contains; An iconic “Godsplitter Daemon Hammer” replica (14.2”x4.2”), 3 cloth faction banners mounted on wooden poles with custom artwork and slogans (25”x15.2”).

Official Press Release

London, 6 March 2017 – Relic Entertainment and SEGA Europe Ltd. today announced the official release date for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. The long-awaited third instalment of the critically acclaimed real-time strategy franchise will be released on April 27th, 2017, and is available to pre-order now at www.dawnofwar.com and selected retailers worldwide.

Dawn of War III is available in three formats: Collector’s Edition, Limited Edition, and Standard Edition. The Collector’s Edition will include a premium disc book, a lenticular art card, the official soundtrack, a replica of the Godsplitter Daemon Hammer, three mounted cloth faction banners and the Masters of War Skin Pack. The Limited Edition will include the premium disc book, the lenticular art card and the official soundtrack.

All editions pre-ordered before the game’s release will include the Masters of War Skin Pack, a collection of three cosmetic skins for Dawn of War III’s Super Walker Elites – the Dark Queen skin for Lady Solaria (Imperial Knight), the Ghost Seer skin for Farseer Taldeer (Wraithknight) and the Big Kustom skin for Beauty (Morkanaut). Players who do not pre-order will still be able to deploy the three Super Walkers in their original forms.

“We’re thrilled to tell fans know that they don’t have to wait much longer to return to battle,” said Philippe Boulle, Game Director of Dawn of War III. “The whole team can’t wait to bring back Dawn of War, bigger and better than ever. April can’t come soon enough!”

Dawn of War III immerses players in the escalating brutality of galactic warfare, where they will lead elite hero units and colossal armies to victory, or oblivion. Powerful super walkers will tower over the front lines as screen-shaking assaults blister the battlefield in an all-out, over-the-top spectacle worthy of the iconic Games Workshop® Warhammer 40,000 universe.
