Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Summary
Though many still swear by the life of boxed copies - either for collection purposes or just to have something physical to show for their exchange of cash - we're entering a time where CD-Drives are absent from most ready-made machines. So if you're worried about the longevity of your boxed copy, fret not! SEGA is dishing out the Steam keys.
All of the classic Warhammer: Dawn of War games will be free on Steam the entire weekend, with a 75% discount for gamers who want to continue playing them after the weekend is over.
Developer Relic is working on Company of Heroes 2, which means there's little time for a full production of the next Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War instalment, but that's okay.
The studio are "doing some rethinking" about how they approach RTS; what's the "best way to present" the strategy genre? There'll definitely be more "RTS 40k stuff," says Danny Bilson.
Robot Entertainment is made up of former Ensemble veterans with Age of Empires to their name. Patrick Hudson of the studio still believes real-time strategy can be big business.
He admits though it's "changing a lot," and he's not sure where "it's going to go." The days of selling millions of copies at "50 or 60 bucks as a PC game" are gone; PC retail not there.
THQ core games boss Danny Bilson has teased the first details of Relic's Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War III instalment, revealing it 'combines I and II'.
Well 1 + 2 does, in fact, equal 3. That's good math. While it's "going back" to the first two on some things it will give us something we "haven't seen before".
