Warhammer 40K Dawn of War 2: Retribution announced

Multi-race expansion pack on the way

THQ has announced that Relic is working on the second expansion for Dawn of War 2, the critically acclaimed Warhammer RTS.

Dawn of War 2: Retribution will be a stand-alone expansion and is scheduled for release in early 2011.

The expansion takes place ten years after the events of Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising and features a single player campaign that is playable from different perspectives thanks to the inclusion of multiple-race. Currently only the Orks are confirmed.

Retribution will have new units for multiplayer, new maps and a new playable faction.


"We all love the Blood Ravens here at Relic Entertainment, but there are also a lot of fans of the other races and armies out there so we decided that Retribution should allow the player the freedom to experience the campaign from the perspective they select." said producer, Jeff Lydell.

Relic is also currently at work on Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, a third-person action game set in the Warhammer universe. Check out our preview of it here.
