Dawn Of War 2 Footage

Relic still don't seem to have really sold what Dawn Of War 2 is all about in their game footage and associated marketing jabber. Here's what I wrote after I saw it in Vancouver almost a year ago: "What was great about the original game, such as its vicious melee combat and feeling of solidity, is going to provide cues for the new direction that…

Dawn of War II: Space Marines

I've posted an oddly low-key GameTrailers game trailer after link: Dawn of War II's Space Marine campaign walkthrough. It's narrated - in a manly way - by the game's commanding lead designer chap, Jonny Ebbert. Ebbert is very tall, and he also knows a few things about making things explode in a manner which entertains the exploder. In this trailer he discusses DoWII's unique squad…

Dawn of War II: Tyranids At Play, and IRL Rhino

DOW2 was already looking like the RTS to get our collective knickers in a twist about, but the recent revelation of hot Tyranid action really sets our nerdish hearts a-flutter. Here they are in living technicolour, together with the game's (slightly nervous, bless his socks) Lead Designer Jonny Ebbert talking about the thinking behind them, and how Relic kept the 'nids' inclusion a secret all…

Dawn Of War 2 Multiplayer: Games For Windows Live

Which may be enough to send a shiver down even a Necron's spine, but this isn't the traditional you-must-pay-for-full-stuff service. Basically, for Dawn of War II you'll have full functionality for free. This includes their TrueSkill matching, voice, achievements and the cross-PC/360 friends list and all that. Which is an interesting move, and you have to wonder about how exactly the deal came about. It's…

E3: The Trailers – Dawn of War II. Tyranids?

Normally I have no time for cinematic trailers. Show me the game. This one, though, is oodles of bloody fun. Especially the Dreadnaut flambé scene. And what's that sky-swarm thingy at the end? Could it be? Could it really be... Tyranids? Let there be much rejoicing. (It may just be video blur, but I'm feeling wishful. And 'oh, it's Chaos again' just wouldn't seem to…

Dawn Of War II: E3 Trailer, New Race Unveiled

With real game footage! Cor, imagine a trailer that actually showed you what the game engine looked like as someone played it. I know, it's a radical idea, but Relic have gone and done it. It also reveals one of the other races that will come with the game, and let's just say that they're not exactly shattering the mould with this one.

Dawn of War II: Things Killing Other Things

Relic's 40K blood-frenzy strategy sequel remains largely a mystery, so it's good to clock some in-game footage and get a sense of what the thing'll be like. Find the video, and some blow-by-blow... well, 'analysis' is hardly an appropriate word. Blow-by-blow something after the cut, plus some more, and rather awesome, screenshots.

Dawn Of War II In PC Gamer

A lengthy preview written by that Jim Rossignol guy. This time, the focus is going to be on the actions of a small team of personalised soldiers. It's about "five or six squads of elite warriors" whose actions are going to define the course of galactic events in the Warhammer universe. It's closer and more intimate than the original game, moving away from that anonymous…

Dawn Of War 2: First Screens

We return from a Friday night consultation with the Imperial Tarot (aka Booze) to discover that the Dawn of War 2 site has gone live. You'll find the first three screenshots here. Stare at them, then contemplate our prior analysis of what Dawn of War 2 may offer here. Oh, and you can watch the trailer on the main page here. And then you should…

Brand New Dawn (of War)?

Scans of the next month page of the new issue of PC Gamer (UK!) have been circling the the electric-internet gossip-tree. It looks like this: (Click to make it full size) Other than that, we're pretty much left with speculation until April 10th. What are the races? Will one finally be the Tyranids? Will it share more in common with Company of Heroes than trad…
