Gold - Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising

THQ announces Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising is gold, and Relic's expansion for their RTS sequel is expected to rush US stores on March 11. Word is:

Developed by award-winning internal studio Relic(R) Entertainment, Chaos Rising features the traitorous Chaos Space Marines army as a playable race, a new single-player campaign, a level cap increase from 20 to 30, more powerful war-gear and a suite of innovative multiplayer options. Scheduled for a nationwide release at all major retail and online outlets on March 11, 2010, Chaos Rising will be available as a Games for Windows LIVE(R) PC title for a suggested retail price of $29.99.

"Chaos Rising is the perfect follow up to Dawn of War II, 2009's RTS Game of the Year, offering an incredible amount of new content for an amazing value," said Travis Plane, Vice President of Global Brand Management, THQ. "Relic Entertainment is the industry's leading RTS developer and will once again deliver bone-crushing action, breathtaking visuals and unprecedented innovation in the genre."

I must be in the minority (again) - I liked DOW2. The lack of base building didn't really bother me. The original DOW single player campaign, for me, became a routine of setting up the same build tree over and over until you got to where you could deploy Terminators - at which point you just crushed everything under an armored heel.

The game was really more about building than fighting. I mean, WH40K shouldn't be about building a barracks. It should be about Space Marines making xenos into a gory stew.

The RTS elements are really just bolted on over the real WH40K, anyway. I'd like to see something true to the tabletop roots, like Cyanide did with Blood Bowl.

I kind of enjoyed the more RPG feel of DOW2.
