Dawn of War III, the latest game in the Warhammer 40,000 collection, launches April 27, but fans will have a chance to try it out for free this weekend.
An open beta starts today, April 21, at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET/6 PM BST, ending at the same time on Monday, April 24. Included in the beta is access to all three of the game’s factions–Space Marines, Eldar, and Orks–and a limited selection of elite heroes for each. The trial is multiplayer only, and you’ll have access to three maps and all three match sizes: 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3.
As an added bonus, you can see the intimidating Masters of War skins in action and even try them on for size. 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 made available for the Open Beta weekend. Pre-order to get the Masters of War Skin Pack for use in the full, released game for free.
