Specialist in the RTS genre Relic Entertainment teams up once again with publisher THQ to bring us Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II, a whole new chapter in the acclaimed series, set in the 41st Millennium in Sub-Sector Aurelia, a war-torn world in Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe. Powered by the developer's Essence Engine 2.0, the game takes players on a mission to save the galaxy as technologically advanced warriors, war machines and hordes of aliens fight constant battles.
With the focus on fast action, real time gameplay, and fierce melee and ranged combat in fully destructible environments, Dawn of War II enables the player to become fully immersed in this mighty science fiction universe like never before. The fate of each race depends upon the development of your squad as you mould them into the toughest, battle-hardened band of warriors in the universe. What the developer regards as the 'intimate brutality of battle' is lit up in all its glory as players are charged with conquering all-comers in the epic battles throughout the campaign. The battlegrounds are about ignite in a blaze of glory (or otherwise) with visceral combat. Does your band of brothers have what it takes to save the galaxy?
