New Dawn of War II footage shows Tyranids

Saturday, 10th January 2009 08:31 GMT By Mike


Over on THQ’s site you can see a rather super looking new Dawn of War II gameplay video showing the Tyranid race.

The amount of sprites on screen, the complete array of colour, all running at a rock solid frame rate is really rather impressive we hope you’ll agree.

If Relic’s strategy slayer is your cup of tea, then you’ll be pleased to know that the Dawn of War II beta starts at the end of the month.

Now go watch.

    The Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II Interview on Strategy Informer is the promised full conversation with Jonny Ebbert, lead designer on Relic’s upcoming RTS sequel. When asked about plans for downloadable content, he describes plans to reward players with free DLC instead of burdening them with digital rights management: “We want to give out steady doses of free downloadable content because we believe in rewarding people who buy the game and the reason we don’t like DRM solutions is because they punish the innocent and they have to jump through all these hoops. We don’t want to do that so we’re going with the approach that Valve pioneered to just reward the people who actually bought the game with cool stuff. Free downloadable, regularly accessible stuff that enhances the game and then that’s an incentive for the people who didn’t buy the game to buy it. So we’ve got a really bold, robust strategy for that and we’re going to be revealing more details in about a month, but I think players are going to like it. And everybody wins you know? The people who paid for the game don’t have to go through any fuss and they’re constantly getting new stuff, which keeps the game fresh.”
