Relic Entertainment and SEGA Europe Ltd. announced today the open beta weekend dates for their upcoming RTS, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. The open beta will begin at 10AM PST Friday, April 21st and run until 10AM PST Monday, April 24th. Players interested in trying the game out can sign up for the open beta weekend at the official site.
Relic Entertainment also provided some details on the open beta weekend and what players can expect to see during the event:
The Open Beta will pit players against each other in Dawn of War III’s tense, chaotic multiplayer. This game mode showcases the strengths and weaknesses of each faction as players put powerful heroes and devastating abilities to use, while countering those of their foes. 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.
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is scheduled to release on PC on April 27, 2017.
