Together Alone: Last Standing In DoW 2

It's been out for a while, but I've only just gotten around to trying out the free Last Stand update for Dawn Of War 2. Chatting to one of the game's producers a while back, he posited it as almost a third game - alongside the already dramatically different single and multiplayer aspects of it. The plan for it is to create a way for…

Dawn Of Update: The Last Stand

Dawn Of War 2's 1.8 update is out [Later today, Jim - RPS], and that includes the new game mode Last Stand. You can check out a video of that mode below, but essentially it's one hero against many waves of enemies. I believe it can be played co-operatively too, so it could be you and chum versus many waves of enemies. The update also…

Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising Announced

There's been rumours around, but it's finally been confirmed in our old comrades at the PC Gamer* podcast. Talking about their forthcoming issue where they reveal that the first Dawn of War 2 add-on pack will feature chaos. And it's called Chaos Rising. It's welcome, but not exactly an enormous surprise - I thought Chaos would be one of the most-likely factions to be in…

Unlikely Comrades: Dawn of War II – The Last Stand

Friday nights are for playing Champions Online for far too long with Messrs Gillen and Cameron while waiting in vain for grumbly John Walker to join us, instead of getting my posts for RPS done and packing for a camping trip in the wilds of Sussex. Sigh. At least I am cheered by news of an impending update for Dawn of War II, which adds…

There Is Only Beta (Until The 14th, Anyway)

The latest update for Dawn Of War 2, There Is Only War, is now up on Steam. Instructions for how to activate it are here. The update comes with the "world builder" level editing tools, and there's a PDF instruction document for that here. We're totally expecting an RPS community map. The full list of other changes included in the patch is here, and boy,…

Dawn Of War II Megapatch Incoming, Battlereport

Balance issues have been making DoW II players frown and cuss, and Relic have been busying themselves making a super-patch to fix it all. It's almost ready, and the guys have released a battle report (below), narrated by designer Jonny Ebbert and balancer Clint Tasker, to demonstrate some of the fundamental changes. You can keep an eye on further developments over on the DoWII devblog.…

Dawn Of War II, Big Update

The shootiest RTS of all time, Dawn Of War II, has just had a monster update, and should patch automatically when you start the game up. The update includes the 2v2 game mode we were all clamouring for when the game originally came out, as well as a bunch of other surface stuff such as new death animations. There's also two new four-player maps, a…

Death March: Dawn Of War II Soundtrack For Free

Well, this is terribly gracious. The complete score for Relic's divisive RTS sequel can now be had for no pennies. I can't say it struck me as either wonderful or terrible whilst I played the game, but the track names are certainly spectacular - f'rinstance "There Is Only War", "They Come In Waves And We Push Them Back" and - oh yes - "Show Me…

Dawn Of War II Demo On Steam

I mean you can download it from other sources, but you'd still need Steam to play it. So you might as well download it on Steam. Of course that only really matters if you haven't already bought and played DoWII anyway, which I know a few of you haven't, because at least one of you has been asking me whether the single player is really…

A Tale of Two Empires

As if more proof were needed that Febrooairy and Marrtch were months made of strategy, we hear glad tidings of little army men achieving great commercial success. Across the world (including the US, UK and Oz) last week, Dawn of War II hit the top of the PC charts like a, er, Space Marine hitting a pile of Orks with a powerfist. Or something. God,…

Wot I Think: Dawn of War II

Dawn of War II, sequel to Relic's much-expanded Warhammer 40,000 RTS, was released to shelves and fat pipes just a few days ago. After a long weekend snuggling up to it, here's wot I think of its explodey delights. According to the Sacred Creed of games writers who genuinely care about games writing, it is not the done thing to dedicate several paragraphs of a…

EuroJudged: Dawn Of War II

Whee! Dawn of War II has been released at last, and I've already reviewed it over here. Naturally we'll be providing with an even more taut and cogent RPS opinion later in the week, but if you really must have a numeral attached to the game, then that's your link. Still in a quandary? Then perhaps you should watch the Eldar action trailer, which we've…

Buy Dawn Of War II Or The Car Gets It

As I'm already atrophying my feeble soul by posting about viral marketing, I might as well show you this too. THQ decided to build a real-life Space Marine Rhino APC to promote the upcoming Dawn of War II (on which we hope to have a Wot I Think soon-ish). If a picture speaks a thousand words, then a short video of a science-fictional tank crushing…

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%…

War, And The Second Dawning Thereof

Ooh, not long now until Dawn of War II. The shiny, RPGy Warhammer 40,000 real-time strategy argy-bargy hits on February 20, but turns out that just under a month before that we'll get to play with the beta. Given disc mastering times and whatnot, I'd imagine by "beta" they actually mean "demo, but beta sounds so much edgier and exclusivier". I still blame Google for…

Dawn Of War II Multiplayer Footage

Reader Sub Edii pointed out that we'd not linked to this most recent Dawn Of War II footage from THQ. It's a bunch of clips of the multiplayer mode in action - the place where the base-building skirmish battles of the original game are still in evidence. Ever wanted to know what a tyranid building looks like as it coughs up phlegm-like troops? Here's your…

And It’s Hello From The Blood Ravens

Beyond the jump we have a cracking new character-introduction type trailer for Dawn of War II. It shows off the special abilities of the core units in the space marine chapter, The Blood Ravens. Lots of in-game footage, and some spectacular assault-marine jetpack air-stomps. Getting fairly excited about this game now.
