The Necron Are Joining WH40K: Dawn Of War II, Sort Of

While talk of Dawn of War 3 remains but a murmur for now, the Necron will soon invade Dawn of War II - Retribution [official site]. A Necron Overlord will join Retribution's co-op survival mode, The Last Stand, in celebration of the Retribution's fifth birthday - the eighth playable character in its roster. As a present, you can get your hands on the new star free-of-charge between…

Bloody Hell: Dawn Of War II – Retribution’s Surprise DLC

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…

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've spent a few hours with Kill Team, the in-theory co-op 40K arcade shooter released on 360 and PS3 in 2011, and which unexpectedly turned up on Steam last week. There's no 'I' in team, and there's no 'online co-op mode' in Kill Team. Which is pretty crazy, as this was a game designed for online co-op. Seemingly rushed out on PC, the favourably received…

The Tau Join Dawn of War 2 , Sorta

Hopefully there'll be a third expansion for Relic's largely (but not solely) fantastigood Dawn of War II, and the usual clutch of new factions and units, but in the meantime a lone Tau unit has snuck into the current version of the game. Specifically, into the Last Stand survival co-op mode, wherein you pick a suitably 40Kian hero and attempt to survive as long as…

Dawn of War 2’s Last Stand Stands Alone

Well, this is rather unexpected. Then again, I'm very easily surprised: I also described the discovery of fresh bread in the cupboard this morning as rather unexpected. This really is unusual, though - Relic are to carve The Last Stand, a high-speed survival RPG mode, out of their Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II and sell it as a standalone game for $10. It's out…
