Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III Open Beta will start this month


Although very little time is needed for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III to be available on PC, SEGA and Relic Entertainment want players to have a chance to try it out before it’s released. For this reason, they will launch an open beta of the strategy game in real time.

According to the official announcement, the trial period will be available from 1 PM ET on Friday April 21, until 1 PM ET on Monday, April 24. In this test you will have the option to control the 3 factions of the game – Space Marines, Eldar and Orks – which will present a selection of “powerful elite heroes”. Also, you can begin experimenting with the Doctrines system, by equipping your army for different situations.


Keep in mind that in this beta you can compete against other players in different types of games that will be carried out on 3 maps. As an additional bonus, you’ll see the Masters of War skins (which you can only get by pre-ordering the game) in action.

To play the Dawn of War III Beta, all you need to do is have a Relic Link account and register on this link. Once the Beta preload is available, you will receive a code via email, which you can redeem on Steam to start the download.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III will arrive on PC on April 27th.
