To say the brutal, gorgeous first trailer for Dawn of War III was an exciting surprise for fans of the series is a huge understatement. Not letting that excitement die down, Relic has followed up with the release of a few screenshots of the new title (via PC Gamer).

With Dawn of War III promising a return to the scale and base building of the first game, combined with the heroes and customization of the second, the screenshots certainly point to as much. One showcases a full-on slugfest between the two fair size armies of the Space Marines and Eldar, complete with multiple vehicles. Dawn of War III will also feature massive elite units and super abilities, like the orbital strike seen below.

While we still know very little about the new RTS game, Relic teases it will be set on the planet Acheron, the home of a devastating weapon. Now the Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar are all fighting for it, the campaign including missions for all three races.

What do you think of the screenshots? Are you excited for the return of the Warhammer 40,000 RTS juggernaut? Let us know in the comments.
