Fantasy wars sometimes like to go hand-in-hand with prophecies. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III takes players into one such real-time strategy war. In the game world, Farseer Taldeer speaks the following:
Fiery skies shall light the way
Blood shall spill over the wandering world
The spear of Khaine shall call the wayfarers
And the storm prince shall unite them.
Referred to as a grimdark future, the simplest translation of this prophecy is that there are factions warring over a spear. People not familiar with the Warhammer 40K universe should know that while the fantasy element is definitely there, the sci-fi aspect launches the violence into a darker, star-faring scale. Fans of the previous Dawn of War games will already know where this one is going but anyone wanting to see this play out can see the Prophecy of War trailer below.
Dawn of War III is due out sometime this year for PC.
