Relic Thanks Fans With Dawn of War Free Weekend, and Added Bonus Content
Even at more than 10 years old, the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War franchise still has a strong, passionate player base, and we at Relic would like to celebrate and show our thanks! From September 24 10AM PDT through to September 27 1PM PDT, Dawn of War I and II, plus all expansions, are free to play on Steam. As well, for new recruits, or veterans looking to complete their collection, both titles and all expansions are 75% off until September 28 at 10AM PDT. As a special thank you to all our loyal players, and as a welcome to anyone new to the franchise, we’ve also added some bonuses to DoW I and II.
• The Temple of Cyrene is a brand new, official multiplayer map we’re adding into the Dawn of War I rotation. This map will be playable in DoW I, as well as the Dark Crusade and Soulstorm expansions. The Temple of Cyrene sits on the blasted landscape of a world scoured clean by the Exterminatus of the Imperial Inquisition. Homeworld of Gabriel Angelos, Cyrene is now a ghost-world of ruined cities and ashen fields. Fight for supremacy amidst the remains of Cyrene’s once-mighty temples. Claim the three critical locations at the heart of the ruins or drive into enemy bases and deliver annihilation.
• In Dawn of War II, we’re giving away four free sets of Wargear; The Vanguard, Sniper, Sternguard, and Destroyer, to equip in the main campaign that were previously only available as pre-order DLC, or as rare loot drops. Now everyone will be able to equip items like the Veteran’s Grenades, Blade of Ulyus, Armor of the Destroyer, and many more to complete your sets!
Warhammer® 40,000™: Dawn of War® II – Retribution™
I've been going for the Warrior Born achievement (Lightning Claws) for the Captain on and off for 6 months now. Two games TODAY I got over 350 kills and was denied the claws both times. What gives?
Everytime I finish a round of Last Stand (started from Retribution), I get booted to the hero select, which means I have to look for a new party. That kinda sucks if you've found a good one, and it makes getting into a new round way slower.
Is there any...
Retribution follows up the story events of Chaos Rising, and then allows you to play a number of different single-player campaigns as each of the different playable races. Unlike in Winter Assault however, the campaigns here are... pretty much the same thing everytime without any real difference between the races. This is one of those games where multiplayer was the chief focus, and the "Last Stand" Mode actually can be kinda fun if you can manage to get some people together who know what they are doing.
As for me, however, it's just one more grindy multiplayer experience vying for my attention... and I have WAY too many of those as is.
I'll give this a "yes" because it does not do anything wrong per se, but this game is pretty much for Warhammer 40k fans only, as far as I am concerned.
multiplayer is filled with brain dead russians and autist "lol le space marines!1" in general campaign is ok, besides it being rehashes slightly being different then each other gameplay is somewhat like the tabletop which is cool since you don't have to pay chump change for a slightly different looking model, oh wait
