Pre-ordering Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III before Thursday gets you the Masters of War Skin Pack. The pack isn’t a huge deal but does include cool looking skins for the Dark Queen, Ghost Seer, and Big Kustom Super Walkers.
All the above retailers include the Masters of War Skin Pack except one. GMG makes no mention of the skin pack in their description, so it is unconfirmed you’ll receive it.
Limited and Collector’s Edition
For gamers looking for the old school feel of a physical disc, you can buy directly from the Relic Store and get either the Limited Edition or Collector’s Edition. They go for $59.99 and $129.99 respectively, which is quite a bit more than the digital copies above.
The sixty dollar Limited Edition includes a physical disc, official game soundtrack, and art card. The one hundred and twenty dollar Collector’s Edition also includes a Godsplitter Daemon Hammer statue and cloth banners for each of the three factions.
