Lifta-Droppa Wagon will roll onto the field, adding incredible mobility to
the Ork's bag of tricks.
Wraithseer Kayduin will bring expanded psyker abilities to the Eldar,
damaging foes and empowering allies.
New Elite Skins
The Primaris Chaplain skin for Diomedes headlines the latest batch of cosmetics,
marking the first time a Primaris Space Marine has been playable in the Dawn of
War universe. Additional skins include Deathwing Terminators and Assault
Terminators, the Salamander Ironclad Dreadnought, and the Eldar's Kyre wearing
the traditional Farseer helmet.
New Multiplayer Maps
The Shrine of Asuryan
(1v1) will have players battling upon arcane Eldar architecture. The
temple-grounds are snow swept and protected by flows of fiery lava.
Serpent Chasm (2x2)
a sand-swept plain, encircled by water. The chasm is the final resting place of
skeletal sea serpents which fans may recognize as the sigil of Lady Solaria and
Da Extractor (3v3)
will let armies wage war upon a looted Ork fuel rig. This weather-beaten rig is
suspended on the ocean and crusted with rust and algae.
New Multiplayer Options
In addition to new landscapes, the update introduces new ways to play in Custom
Matches. Players will have the option to toggle Elites, Doctrines, and faction
super abilities on or off, creating new challenges as you face off against other
players, or the AI.
