Relic: no “major content” planned for Dawn of War 3 after it fails to hit targets

There will be no "major" expansion content for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III and the studio has turned to other projects, Relic confirmed to us today, despite intentions to the contrary discussed last year. The Games Workshop-themed strategy game was met with a divisive response due to its abandonment of real-time strategy mainstays in favour of more of a hero unit approach, in addition…

Feature:

Have you played… Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Soulstorm?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I genuinely couldn’t say whether Soulstorm was the ‘best’ version of Relic’s first 40K RTS, but it’s certainly the one that makes me feel fondest towards the series.

WH40K: Dawn of War’s Witch Hunters Mod Is Finally Out

Relic are still poking at Dawn of War II, but what about the first of Relic's Warhammer 40,000 RTSs? Delightfully, modders are still happily working on expanding and revamping Dawn of War, and this weekend saw the release of the Witch Hunters: Adepta Sororitas mod [official site] for DoW: Soulstorm. It adds a new army drawing from the judicial and ecclesiastical arms of the Emperor's…

All 40,000 Dawn Of War Games Free To Try On Steam

By 2017, every human being on Earth will be developing a Warhammer 40,000 game. I suppose it's possible that at least one of those 7.125 billion titles will go on to be as beloved as Relic's Dawn of War series, but it does seem unlikely. If you're one of the few people yet to play a Dawn of War - perhaps because you've been too…

TITANS! Dawn Of War Ultimate Apocalypse Does Epic 40K

I would love to froth at you about the new release of an ultromod for the original Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm, which transforms it into a simalcrum of Epic / Apocalypse 40K. Genuinely would love to. Epic was my first Games Workshop game, and because the first things we're exposed to are always the ones we believe to be the best, its…

Dawn of War 2 Beta Early Access (And Impressions)

To tie in with the early access to the Dawn of War beta kicking off, I wrote up some impressions over at Eurogamer. I had to resist just making Tyranid impressions for my entire word-count, because I'm weak like that. The beta turns open on January 28th, but until then anyone with a Dawn of War: Soulstorm key can play. It's now available at 75%…

The RPS Verdict: Dawn of War –  Soulstorm

It's verdict time again and we've all been playing Warhammer 40k: Dawn Of War – Soulstorm. It's Real Time Strategy in that distant universe where the warring space folks are all vaguely analogous to fantasy archetypes. Hmm. Let's see what we thought of it. John : Jim. I've heard something about a game called Warhammer: 40,000,000,000 Mark of Chaos: Dawn of War: Soulstorm. Tell us…

Polish Journalist Versus Relic Bloodbath

I exaggerate only slightly. Since Soulstorm is out and it looks like Dawn of War 2's announcement may be imminent, I thought it time to transcribe a passably memorable event that I had on tape. It occurred when Alec and I toddled over to visit Relic when they first debuted Soulstorm. To be precise, when Executive Producer Jonathan Dowdeswell stopped the video, and asked if…

War Dawns Anew

Soulstorm, the latest 'expandalone' (Relic's word, not mine, and one I feel I should loathe, yet somehow don't. Possibly because it's simply too ridiculous to be offended by) for Dawn of War is now on Steam (Edit - not until tomorrow in Europe. Pah. Edit-edit - and now tomorrow is today. Jinkies!). It's also available from the primitive constructs of brick, plaster and listless teenage…

Soulstorm Demo

Looking at our big list of games we're planning to preview over the next few weeks, which is of course absolutely exhaustive and not at all limited to whatever we remembered off the tops of our heads, there really aren't a lot of RTSes on it. In fact, there're only two, and we've written about one already. Um. It's not, for once, because we're meatheaded…

Alice in her Power Armour

The second race in the forthcoming Dawn of War: Soulstorm has been announced. It's the Sisters of Mercy! Thanks Gametrailers! May you continue to live in a grinning future where there is only game footage. Battles. No, I mean, Sisters of Battle. Oddly, it's been announced two weeks back over at Gamespot (See here to see a member of Relic say so if you frown…

Soulstorm Trailer

The most recent Dawn of War expansion now has a gameplay trailer, feature lots of gory, shooty action from those pernicious Dark Eldar. It's the briefest of orchestrally-soundtracked showpieces, but I have to admit it's already got me eyeing the Dawn Of War discs on my shelf, sitting as they are (in some odd twist of accidental organisation) between Star Wars Empire At War and…
