Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III – Fragments of War Trailer

With the release of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III just one week away, Relic Entertainment and Sega today release the Fragments of War trailer. On April 27th , the planet Acheron will emerge from the warp, bringing with it the mysterious Spear of Khaine – the powerful weapon that sets Dawn of War III in motion, drawing three familiar faces ever closer to their intertwined fates.

Through its narration, the trailer surfaces the defining features of the story’s core heroes – Gabriel Angelos of the Space Marines, Farseer Macha of the Eldar, and Gorgutz ‘Ead’unter of the Orks. But as each shard twists, doubt is cast over whether those features will propel them to power, or see them left bloodied in defeat.
