CALABASAS HILLS, Calif., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- THQ Inc. (Nasdaq: THQI - News) today announced Warhammer® 40,000: Dawn of War: Winter Assault(TM), the highly anticipated expansion pack to the real-time strategy game of the year, and Dawn of War: Game of the Year Edition(TM) have shipped to retail outlets in North America. Developed by THQ's Relic Entertainment, the Dawn of War series is available exclusively for Windows PC; both games retail for $29.99.

Wish we had a more exciting race than IG, but looking forward to it just the same. Also too bad I think it'll break most mods (I know 1.4 does).

And Relic: How about some native widescreen resolutions, huh? The 90's are over. In fact, send that out to ALL devs.

Anyone know what the new SM units are? I think I saw a Chaplain in some screenshots...

Oklahoma?

This explains so much, Creston...


But...but...it's not my fault. Really it isn't... Please say you still like me?

Yeah it seems there is a definite distribution issue going on this week. I checked DoW's forums, and the devs themselves had been saying the 19th all along, and now it's the 22nd. I called four gamestores today, and they all said "We expected it today, but no go. Hopefully tomorrow."

BAH

Spume, note that the GOTY edition does NOT have the expansion pack included, AFAIK. So if you're wanting to buy one of those 2 for 1 sets, you'll probably have to wait a bit.

The number of levels is not always a good indicator of length, as the time to complete them can vary wildly.

Agreed, although I will say that most of the levels in the original were pretty lengthy (apart from the first two which were almost tutorials). And Relic says they increased the complexity of the levels, ie more to do, more objectives etc.

Oh well, this will tide me over nicely till B&W 2

Creston: Yeah, I was talking $30 as full-priced. For ten SP levels, I'll probably wait until it's $20.

I'm going to wait for a report on single player game length before I decide if I'm going to pay full price for the game

Two times five missions, with some maps being reused for some of the missions (annoying, since every preview had said two times SIX Missions. Might not seem like a big deal, but 12 or 10 missions in total is a pretty big difference in my book.)

And ofcourse, you get to play four different factions, each of whom have different objectives in certain missions, so it should definitely be replayable.

Also, it's not full price, it's 30 bucks. Which is hefty for an expansion pack, but not as brutal as Id's 35 bucks for their 9 hour Doom 3 expansion...
