Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising video shows units


THQ as released a new video for the Chaos Rising expansion to Dawn of War II.

In it, lead designer Daniel Kading gives a behind-the-scenes look at Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising and the multiplayer units included.

He chats a bit about the Weirdboy, Genestealer, and Wraithguard - which all look like you're going to want them in some capacity.

Here's a breakdown of the multiplayer units for you:

  • Librarian (Space Marines) – Psyker unit capable of powerful damage and support spells. Inspires surrounding marines when killing in melee.
  • Weirdboy (Orks) – The Weirdboy is a long range support unit and caster. Charge his energy by putting him near da boyz and having them shout.
  • Wraithguard (Eldar) – Slow moving short range heavy infantry, they move more quickly with a warlock nearby but are stunned if the warlock dies.
  • Genestealer Brood (Tyranids) – An elite melee unit that infiltrates after staying still for enough time. Adrenal Rush ability grants increased speed, lifesteal and increased damage.
  • Tyrant Guard (Tyranids) – A large durable melee unit, moves faster in synapse. Can use the Shieldwall ability which regenerates health and reduces incoming damage.

All the units will be free for existing DoW 2 players upon release.

The expansion's out March 11 in the US
