The original 3rd person Gears type game was scrapped, the name was moved to Relic by THQ.
Under Relic the game seems to have transformed to a Action RPG that by the trailers looks a bit like DOW2 visually, but presumably as a full Action RPG.

2 E3 trailers from the game under Relic.

Im sure they had their reasons.
But the environments were looking pretty sweet.
Didnt get too excited about the gameplay though when I saw it, even though it was very early footage and the AI obviously wasnt very developed.

It would be interesting to see how this goes since most RTS games to 3rd person shooters have been a disaster. E.g. Command & Conquer Renegade, cancellation of Starcraft Ghost etc.

Warhammer 40k isnt really a pure RTS IP like Command & Conquer though, its not even a computer game IP either originally, unlike C&C.
Been a bunch of 40k games of different genres.

renegade was not a disaster, unless you were expecting a rts/shooter game. in that case, you might like raven squad. Renegade is one of my all time favorites. Even before the game came out, I d/led the multiplayer demo and played it for days. I am somewhat of a rts fan but when they immersed into a shooter, I was all over it. Does any remember the wh40k space hulk shooter from the early to mid 90's? It wasn't all that great but it allowed you to be 1st person in a roleplaying game. Meaning it came out before the rts games.
