There might be no sign of any Dawn of War III – come on come on come on come on – but new-ish Relic owners Sega seem determined not to let the beloved Warhammer 40,000 strategy series lie entirely fallow. Last month they put out a new map for the first Dawn of War and today, four years after its original release, Dawn of War II – Retribution [official site] just received new, paid DLC. It’s loosely Hallowe’en themed, but it’s Only War enough in its own right to be good all year round.
The £1.59/$1.99/€1.99 DLC is named The Ridiculously Bloody Blood Pack, which “significantly increases the frequency and size of the in-game blood effects.” That’s, uh, kind of a lot to pay for new splatter effects, but Sega do have form here, having done similar with the last couple of Total War games too (that’s been to let the games get lower ratings, officially). Here, look at all this blood:
Seems a bit OTT? By which I really mean, “seems a bit 40K?”
You can grab the pack from Steam here.
