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…

Company Of Waaagh! It’s The Humble Relic Bundle

If we seem cynical and suspicious of the many Warhammer 40,000 games we've seen in recent years, it's because we judge them against the high-water mark of Relic Entertainment's 40k games. Dawn of War with its real-time strategising, Dawn of War II with its added action-RPG-ish flair, and Space Marine with its head-stomping are as good as we've had 40k in recent years. So huzzah!…

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…

Relic Detail Delicious Ulthwe DLC Pack

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…

THQ Not Chucked Out of Games Workshop

This is a bit "some men have paid some money to some other men", but given the general tendency towards 40K gonkery around these parts it's worth a nod. THQ have just announced that they've arranged to hang onto the rights to Warhammer 40,000 for a few more years yet. This means we'll see more Only War-based games from THQ (including social and mobile ones;…

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…

DOW2: So That’s What An Ork Looks Like

Oddly, I have never once thought to question what faces really provide the voices for the Dawn of War games' assortment of space bastards. Did I think there was really an ork behind a microphone somewhere? Did I truly believe there was a man who naturally spoke like Patrick Stewart x1000? Of course not, but a testament to good voice acting is when you don't…

RPS Verdict – Dawn of War II: Retribution

Last week Alec gifted us with his opinionations on Dawn of War II: Retribution, the latest standalone expansion for Relic's Dawn of War II. When the game was released on Friday Kieron and Quinns, as ever, found themselves in the mood for some bombastic hyper-war. And lo, this very lunchtime the three men gathered and holstered their guns for the official RPS Verdict.

Dawn of War II Retribution review

The second Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II expansion, Retribution, launched yesterday. Or today. Or tomorrow. Or never. Or whenever. All at once. Depends on where you are and where you download from, basically. This hasn't enjoyed the pan-continental release date it should have done, despite being so inherently online a title. With a bit of luck, you can purchase Relic's sci-fi RTS/RPG mash-up from…

Blood Ravin’ – The DOW2 Retribution Intro

My, Dawn of War games have been an almost annual thing for nearly a decade now, haven't they? I have no issue with that - any year with a bit of new Only War in it tends to be a better year for it. 2011 brings us Retribution, the second Dawn of War II expandalone and the first to make the Imperial 'Impy Goo' Guard…

Retribution Beta For Dawn Of War Steamers

Oh, I missed this before, but VG247 picked it up: anyone who owns a Dawn Of War game on Steam can now get into the Retribution beta. UPDATE: Or anyone else can just try for a key here. I had a bit of play with the Imperial Guard at the weekend, and it was fantastic. I particularly like the ogryns as a melee unit. Not…

Hands On With DOWII: Retribution

We sent RPS infiltrator Dan Griliopoulos to THQ's UK office to play the latest Dawn Of War II expansion. What he saw contained Noise Marines, Inquisitors, and no GFWL. The game is out 4th March 2011 Everyone has a reason to be on Typhon. Eliphas the Betrayer is there to, y’know, betray stuff; Captain Diomedes of the Blood Ravens wants retribution (duh) on his traitorous…

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…

A Little Retribution Goes A Long Way

The third Dawn Of War II expansion pack, Retribution, is making my war-glands tingle with anticipation. This latest, rather brief, trailer (below) shows space marines, and chaos marines, and a big old demon. It shows giant spikes exploding out of the ground. I can't wait to get my hands on this, frankly. Also, is anyone else out there wrestling with whether to buy Ultramarines on…

WH40k:DOWII – Retribution, Eldar Campaign

We've been sitting about for weeks, listlessly bouncing a squig against the wall, waiting for the other playable race to be revealed, and now there's a breakthrough: it seems that Dawn Of War II's expansion, Retribution, will feature Eldar. This is the second race with which you can play through the events of the single player campaign. There's a trailer below, with some good footage…

Dawn of War II – Retribution Announced

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…
