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."

No. DOW1 was cool, but at it's heart it was a cookie-cutter RTS with blood. The action was slow and never felt really grabbing.

DOW2 nailed the visceral feeling of the IP's combat, and actually was probably closer to the tabletop game in that it eschewed basebuilding.

DOW3 probably will have more base building, leader units, and squads that the leaders have the option of recruiting and joining to. This is sort of where they went in Retribution. Squads without leaders will have one or two powers/options, but squads with leaders will be highly flexible units requiring micromanagement.

I'd like to see morale loss do more than suppression, and cause units to break and potentially retreat in a disorganized way, taking units out of the fight for an extended period of time or making it easier to actually destroy the squad. It'd make flamers a much more appealing weapon choice.
