Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2, a sequel from Real-Time Strategy-developer Relic Entertainment, is set to bring the 41st Millennium’s savage warfare to life like never before in spring 2009, exclusively for Windows PC. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II will take players to the brutal frontlines of war where they’ll experience intense action and visceral combat through a non-linear single player experience and a fully co-operative multiplayer campaign. All powered by an enhanced version of Relic’s proprietary Essence Engine 2.0.
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II is set in the grim, war-ravaged world of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe – a dark, futuristic, science-fiction setting where armies of technologically advanced warriors, fighting machines and hordes of implacable aliens wage constant war. Dawn of War II ushers in a new chapter in the acclaimed RTS series, as ancient races – including the dauntless Space Marines and savage Orks – clash with ferocious melee and ranged combat across fully destructible environments in what will be the most visually-stunning Warhammer 40,000 setting ever created.
