Relic Detail Delicious Ulthwe DLC Pack

By Jim Rossignol on July 19th, 2011.

Mmm, too good to miss.
Ooh, I missed this last week, but PCG posted a helpful link: there’s going to be an Ulthwe Eldar DLC for Dawn Of War 2, and Relic have been busy showing off some of the models for it. I am seldom a sucker for such things, but I must admit (and don’t tell anyone else about this) to having a huge Ulthwe army of actual miniatures. Yes, the spooky space elves are to me as skaven are to Gillen. I’m sorry, but it’s true. And that means I’m going to have to have this DLC, too. Collector impulse decides for me. And, well, a man has to have some dubious pleasures if life is going to be interesting. We can’t all smoke crack.

UPDATE: Crikey, I didn’t realise it was £5. Crack it is!

DOWII Retribution Gets Multiplayer Beta

By Jim Rossignol on January 17th, 2011.


And it’s starting on the 31st of the month. THQ say: “The beta is scheduled to go live on Monday 31 January when global press and key Dawn of War® community members will be given access. It will then broaden to include everyone who has pre-ordered Dawn of War® II – Retribution™ on STEAM to date on 1 February. Finally, anyone who has bought a Dawn of War game through STEAM or has registered a Dawn of War II product on their STEAM account will automatically receive an invite on 8 February. There will be no open registration phase to this beta.” Full details here.

The beta will feature all six multiplayer races from the forthcoming expansion, including lovely, squishy Imperial Guard, and holy crap I am overdue getting into a multiplayer RTS again. This could be it.

Dawn of War II – Retribution Announced

By Kieron Gillen on August 17th, 2010.

Waaagh and Peace would have been the pun title, but there's no room and it's terrible.
This news breaks as sharply as the sound of a bolter-magazine being slammed into place by the palm of the righteous. Just announced is that there’s a second incoming expansion for Dawn of War II. Set a decade after Chaos Rising, rather than being stuck with the Blood Ravens, you get to choose your side. Which sides do you get to pick from? Well, as you may surmise from the enormous jaw bellowing at you above, one will be the Orks. Also promised are new multiplayer units and a whole new faction. Which sounds like a cue to link to our Dawn of War 2 sweepstakes article again. Go Jokero! Anyway – the expansion will be out in the first “bit” of 2011 and the first trailer follows…
