THQ today announced a second stand-alone expansion for Warhammer 40K Dawn of War II, entitled Retribution.
The new expansion takes place years after the events in Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising and allows players to choose their perspective with the first multiple-race single player campaign in the Dawn of War II series.
The first race to be revealed is the savage Orks, although players will be able to journey through each story arc, no matter what race they choose.
As well as the single player campaign, Retribution will feature new multiplayer units, maps and an entire new playable faction when it ships.
Jeff Lydell, Producer of Dawn of War II – Retribution commented: “We all love the Blood Ravens here at Relic Entertainment, but there are also a lot of fans of the other races and armies out there so we decided that Retribution should allow the player the freedom to experience the campaign from the perspective they select.”
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution is scheduled to be released for Windows PC in the first quarter of 2011.
