The Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III [Steam, Feral Store] has been updated for Linux to include the Endless War Update which brings in some fun free stuff.

Here's the highlights:

  • It adds in three new units: The Ironclad Dreadnought of the Space Marines, the Lifta-Droppa Wagon of the Orks, and the Wraithseer of the Eldar. These units are only available in the multiplayer, not the campaign.
  • Three new multiplayer maps: The Shrine of Asuryan (1v1), the Serpent Chasm (2v2), and Da Extraktor (3v3).
  • And theres also five new Elite Skins: Helmed Kyre, Primaris Chaplain, Salamanders Ironclad Dreadnought, Deathwing Terminators, and Deathwing Assault Terminators.

Feral Interactive also noted that the Linux/Mac patch fixes "a number of minor issues".

Really happy to see this one continue to be updated! I'm hoping a sizable single-player expansion is on the way. It had a lot to like about it, but it really needs a bigger single-player to it.

I tried the Dawn of War 3 on the free weekend and I was really disappointed. I hoped for something similar to the first or second Dawn of War, but this looks more like MOBA game than anything else.

Also the graphics looks like the game is targeted on the younger audience and I don't like this fancy graphics outfit.

I will still buy it for the story, because I want to see how the story will continue after second Dawn of War. But this will be only if the game will be on very high discount. In the meantime I will rather play first or second Dawn of War.

I couldn't even finish single player; third level has a problem of not being able to progress on the level. Hits windows too, so it's a core game code problem.
Official respose for windows users was to wipe local saves and start the game from the beginning.
Even the storyline by then was lacklustre. The sole good thing I can say is that the Vulkan port by Feral runs really well.

...and a Primaris Chaplain? That just seems....odd, if the story should be taken into account. Suppose it's for mutiplayer though, so story can be at any point in the timeline really.

Thank you Feral for such a great support. Now it's true that the game by itself is somewhat disappointing... but it is not due to the Feral port.

is there any cross-platform multiplayer in this game yet ?

This last update unfortunately broke the Vulkan renderer for me - just flashing colors all over the screen with Nvidia 384.90. OpenGL still works fine though.

Can confirm this, have just emailed feral support with my support report attached from the launcher, have referenced your comment too.

I didn't noticed the Primaris Chaplain. I know they are available for few other chapters, but the Dawn Of War 3 is based on 7th edition and they should be available in 8th.

I love DoW III and the game gets better with each update. I hope there's an incoming expansion...
