The old trailer was a different game developed by a different company but was cancelled.

This one is being made by Relic, and it looks pretty much like Dawn of War 2 SP for consoles, which acctually sounds pretty sweet IMO (Except it doesnt seem to be coming for PC at all)
Remove the UI from the DOW2 SP and remove the 3 squads and keep the main hero, and you got yourself a Action RPG looking very much like this.
Think they stuck some of the content from the old one into Relics game engine they use for DOW2/COH, looks like it atleast.

UPDATE 1- A post on Relic's boards says that this title is not the same game that was leaked in that video from last year. That clip was "for an action title Studio Aus was working on. This is a totally different project, though it does share the same name as the leaked video used."

Sounds like the action game in development at THQ Australia may have been binned, then shifted to Relic and cannibalised for parts. We'll look into it, see if the action game is still being worked on or not.

UPDATE 2 - Yup. Sources have told us that the original action title was cancelled, but that THQ thought some parts were worth salvaging, and handed the leftovers over to Relic to turn into this action RPG.
