Dawn of War 3 – take a look at the first gameplay footage

Dawn of War 3 was first revealed a few short weeks ago. Now that E3 is underway, we get to see some gameplay.

The footage wasn’t shared through official channels. Instead, German site PC Games Hardware is hosting it as part of a preview.

The video is less than four minutes-long, and all commentary is in German, but we’ll take what we can get. According to translation from Reddit user Scrial, Dawn of War 3 will do away with the previous game’s cover system.

Though base building will return, don’t expect defensive structures and fortifications. Individual unit abilities are still a big focus, and so are large battles.

Take a look.
