THQ On Dawn of War III

THQ plans a new direction for Dawn of War III, reports Eurogamer, where they have first details on the next installment in Relic's sci-fi real-time strategy series. "We're working on the next-generation of that franchise right now," THQ's Danny Bilson tells them. "I feel like an ass saying it's fantastic, but it is. And we're going to do something with it you haven't seen before. Preserving some things that have always been great about the first two generations of it, going back to 1 on some things, 2 on some things, and 3 will bring us some new things. When you see it you're going to go, whoa. I promise." He also strongly hints the game could be announced in August at Gamescom, and offers a general overview of what to expect: "Now Dawn of War III, either way, is going to have a much larger strategic component to it, more of a global battle going on with little tactical things, sort of MMO-like."

don't like the idea of SP wargear in MP either, it would mess with balance too much and doesn't really bring anything to the table other than "OH NEAT ITEMZ".

Imagine the marine commander, the h2h guy. He starts with a power sword. What if you could change that to a chainsword because you liked that better? (er...maybe I got that backwards) I think he has a bolt pistol as well, what if you could change that to a flamer pistol? (or a melta pistol) I know you can already change it to a plasma pistol with one of those 9 upgrades. So how about letting players pick from a larger pool of upgrades. Make them point based or something so that if the commander takes a kick ass melee weapon to begin with he loses the points he'd need to upgrade to a better anti-vehicle melee weapon later.

I think it'd be easy to balance this stuff. And who wouldn't want to swap out a power fist for a Chain First. It literally is a chainsaw strapped onto a powerfist...oh my god it's so beautiful.

There are also a ton more vehicles. That predator tank that comes out with an autocannon and can be upgraded to las cannons, that thing can equip dual assault cannons, it can equip heavy flamers on the side, it can get armor upgrades...DoW2 is ridiculously rigid in what it will let you do. I want them to blow the doors off this franchise and let players go nuts. I want to see the same level of customization in DoW3 that we see on the tabletop. Let us choose everything.

And give me a God damn vortex grenade. (grenade that opens up a mini black hole, kills everything on contact and you have no control over where it goes after it lands, these were an awesome way to counter high value targets...even your own....)
