'WarHammer 40K: Dawn of War II - Retribution' Gets Dark Angels DLC Next Week

by Rainier on April 1, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

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.

It is ten years since the events of Chaos Rising and Sub-Sector Aurelia has been in a constant state of warfare with the Imperium struggling to retain control. The apparent betrayal of the chapter by Gabriel Angelos and his Space Marines has shaken the Blood Ravens and now the Imperial forces are beset on all sides by hostile aliens. Retribution allows the player to select the race of their choosing in a battle to determine the very survival or destruction of the entire sector. In addition to the multi race single player campaign, Dawn of War II - Retribution also features 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.

The Dark Angels Pack adds the iconic Space Marine chapter to the game with eight unique models for the major multiplayer units as well as new color schemes for the others. The Force Commander is replaced by a Dark Angels Company Master complete with winged helmet, the Tactical Marine squad all sport the iconic Dark Angels robes. Additionally, the Scout Squad, Assault Marine Squad and Terminators all receive similar chapter-specific revisions. The Space Marine vehicles also get a visual makeover with this DLC pack, adding custom designs and emblems to differentiate them from the standard vehicles.

The Dawn of War II - Retribution Dark Angels DLC will be available April 6, 2011, for $7.50.
