Feast your eyes on these Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution screens

THQ has released screenshots for Retribution, its second stand-alone expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II.

We pointed you in the direction of these screens in a Saturday Shorts post, but now that the assets have been sent over to us, we though you’d like to have a little extra hands-on time with them at your leisure.

Retribution takes place ten 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 game’s series.

As well as containing a single-player campaign, Retribution features new multiplayer units, maps and the Imperial Guard as the new playable faction. The Eldar, Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines, Orks and Tyranids are all playable as well through both the single and multiplayer modes. The Imperial Lord General has been added to The Last Stand heroes along with a new map, and multiplayer for Retribution will include base building.

As well as a Collector’s Edition being available, those who pre-order the game will receive additional items for a specific race in the campaign depending on which pack you choose out of the six different races. Ork is a Steam exclusive, Tyranids is a THQ online store exclusive, but all will be available as DLC after release. The Dawn of War II – Retribution Collector’s Edition contains all six skins.

Announced back in August, Retribution is slated for release on PC March 1 with Steamworks.

The multiplayer beta for the game ends on February 24.

    I want to get it, but I won’t, I played the beta & the MP is still shit, far from worth the 1 more unit & map in The Last Stand & a linear campaign.
