Dawn of War II: First awesome in-game footage

Blizzard most definitely has competition - and it's from Relic's impressive RTS sequel

THQ and Relic have released the first in-game footage of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II and who'd have guessed it; it looks bloody brilliant.

The follow-up sports a non-linear solo campaign (as is popular in the genre these days) as well as a fully co-op multiplayer campaign. As you can see from the video, Dawn of War II is also boasting fully destructible environments - something which could add tons of strategy to the combat if Company of Heroes is anything to go by.

So far only Space Marine and Orkz factions are confirmed, though Tyranids are heavily tipped to appear in playable form.

Watch the video over on THQ's lovely website.
