Dawn of War III: The Endless War Update

Dawn of War III’s biggest post-launch content release will arrive on October 19th, bringing with it three elite heroes, five cosmetic skins, three multiplayer maps, and new custom match options to challenge players on the battlefield.

This release builds on previous monthly updates, adding a total of nine multiplayer maps, 25 free cosmetic skins, expanded modding tools and Steam Workshop support, Annihilation Mode, and the removal of the Skull currency system – making all Elites and Doctrines available to all players.

New Elites

The devastating Ironclad Dreadnought will join the Space Marines, using its seismic power to tie up foes and break the enemy line. The Lifta-Droppa Wagon will roll onto the field, adding incredible mobility to the Orks’ bag of tricks. Wraithseer Kayduin will bring expanded psychic abilities to the Eldar, damaging foes and empowering allies.

New Elite Skins

The Primaris Chaplain skin for Diomedes headlines the latest batch of cosmetics, marking the first time a Primaris Space Marine has been playable in the Dawn of War universe. Additional skins include Deathwing Terminators and Assault Terminators, the Salamanders Ironclad Dreadnought, and the Eldar’s Kyre wearing the traditional Farseer helmet.

New Multiplayer Maps

The Shrine of Asuryan (1v1) will have players battling upon arcane Eldar architecture. The temple grounds are snow-swept and protected by flows of fiery lava. Serpent Chasm (2×2) is a sand-swept plain, encircled by water. The chasm is the final resting place of skeletal sea serpents which fans may recognise as the sigil of Lady Solaria and House Varlock. Da Extractor (3v3) will let armies wage war upon a looted Ork fuel rig. This weather-beaten rig is suspended on the ocean and encrusted with rust and algae.

New Multiplayer Options

In addition to new landscapes, the update introduces new ways to play in Custom Matches. Players will have the option to toggle Elites, Doctrines, and faction super abilities on or off, creating new challenges as you face off against other players, or the AI.
