Prepare for battle: Dawn of War III open beta announced

SEGA Europe and Relic Entertainment have announced that the official open beta weekend for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III will take place from Friday, April 21st (10AM PST) until Monday, April 24th (10AM PST).

The open beta will pit players against each other in Dawn of War III’s multiplayer. The game mode is said to showcase the strengths and weaknesses of each faction. Players will have access to all three of the game’s factions – Space Marines, Eldar, and Orks – and a selection of powerful elite heroes for each, allowing them to experiment with different playstyles and strategies.

The open beta weekend also gives players their first chance to see and experience the intimidating Masters of War skins in action. 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) will all be available for use. The Masters of War Skin Pack is included free with all pre-orders. 

Dawn of War III is set for release on April 27th, 2017, and is available to pre-order now at

I've been a SEGA fan pretty much all my gaming life - though I am also SEGA Nerds' resident Microsoft fanboy (well, every site needs one) and since SEGA went third party, I guess it's now ok to admit that I like Nintendo and Sony too :0) I'm also the Content Manager of the big data company, Digital Contact Ltd, in the UK:
