THQ has announced a second stand-alone expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II coming the first quarter of 2011. The expansion is titled Retribution, and it takes place years after the events in Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising. Retribution allows players to to choose their perspective with the first multiple-race single player campaign in the Dawn of War II series.
Savage Orks are the first to be revealed as of yet, but each race will be an adventure and answer many questions that went unanswered in previous titles. Retribution will also feature new multiplayer units, maps and a completely new playable faction when it ships.
The producer of Dawn of War II – Retribution was quoted saying:
“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 planned for a release in the first quarter of 2011 and will be available for Windows PC.
