Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III Nabs a Late April Open Beta

Sega and Relic Entertainment will get Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III into player’s hands early with an open beta.

Those itching to play Dawn of War III early will get a chance thanks to an upcoming open beta weekend. The Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III open beta will take place from 10am PST on Friday, April 21 through 10am PST on Monday, April 24. This will give players a good taste of what to expect ahead of the game’s launch.

The open beta will give players the opportunity to play Dawn of War III’s multiplayer and try out each of the three factions. A handful of hero units will be unlocked for each faction, allowing players to experiment with different playstyles and strategies. You’ll also get to see the Masters of War skins in action. These include 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 being offered as a pre-order bonus.

Warhammer 40,000 is out April 27 on PC, which means that the beta is coming just in time for launch.
