Dawn of War II Patch Notes

Steam News announces the release of an automatic update for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, Relic's RTS sequel. This probably went live yesterday, as it mentions The Last Stand, yesterday's DLC. Here's word:
    • Added The Last Stand, a new arcade survival mode where teams of three fight waves of increasingly deadly enemies

    • Added new unique wargear, abilities and effects to the three heroes in The Last Stand

    • Added The Last Stand leaderboards

    • Hero progress is stored online and is associated with a player's gamertag

    • Added (2p) Quest's Heresy map

    • Added (4p) Hydris Chasm map

Yep, the core gameplay is disappointing. Dumbed down and more importantly, nothing like the original DOW. Most of the online games play out the same way since there's no base building or tech tree to speak of.

The Last Stand is a nice break but like Slink said, I'd rather them spending all the resources elsewhere. Perhaps on fixing the core gameplay first before balance and even bug fixes, or just let it die and work on a proper PC version of W40K Space Marines.
