WH 40k: Dawn of War II takes players to the brutal frontlines of war where they’ll experience intense action and visceral combat through a non-linear single player experience and a fully co-op campaign. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution adds a multiple-race single player campaign, new multiplayer units, maps and an entire new playable faction.

Taking place years after the events in Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising, this title allows players to choose their perspective with the first multiple-race single player campaign in the Dawn of War II series. The first race to be revealed is the savage Orks, but no matter which race is chosen players will be taken on an epic journey through each story arc, revealing the answers to many questions left open in previous Dawn of War titles.

As well as the single player campaign, Retribution will feature new multiplayer units, maps and an entire new playable faction when it ships.

THQ announced that a collector’s edition as well as six individual race packs for its upcoming real time strategy game, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution™, are available now for pre-order.

Leading the charge, the Dawn of War II - Retribution Collector’s Edition will give the most dedicated Warhammer 40,00 fan access to all of the available bonus wargear for each of the six playable races in the game.  It also includes an exclusive poster, six race art cards and a high-quality collector’s box all for $39.99. Gamers in North America can only get the collector’s edition by pre-ordering through store. Limited quantities are available.

Fans of a specific race can pledge their allegiance by pre-ordering one of the six available specific race packs for the same $29.99 suggested retail price as the regular version of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution.  These race packs are available for electronic distribution and are ONLY available at pre-order stage.  Each race pack includes four unique ability and Wargear items that can be used to enhance the single player campaign.  The Ork Race Pack is exclusive through STEAM and the Tyranid Race Pack exclusive through The Space Marine, Chaos Space Marine, Eldar and newly announced Imperial Guard race packs are also available for pre-order through, STEAM and other electronic distribution partners. After launch, gamers will have the option of purchasing the individual race packs digitally through STEAM for a nominal fee.
