As Relic Games return to their popular Dawn of War strategy series, I’ve noticed a certain amount of trepidation among fans. The game endeavours to return to the scale and action of the first in the series, while still also retaining some of the smaller scale elements of the second and introducing a few new ideas. Thankfully, those with preconcieved notions of how the game will play can now become better informed, as an open beta test has been announced in the run up to the game’s launch.
Running from 21st April until 24th April – you can register for access here – with the game releasing the following week on 27th April. Players will be able to try out all three of the races in the game, the Space Marines, Orks and Eldar, and try out the new game mode at the heart of the multiplayer. For more on this, you can read our hands on preview, or watch it in action in our video below.
