Default DoW expansion preview

Some videos and screenshots of the Necrons, Tau and Kroot here http://uk.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/w...ml?sid=6148650.
Seems this expansion pack is going to be the 'best expansion pack ever' as it has a map campaign for each of the seven races and introduces a new way of playing single player as you now fight over the map, with different areas producing different in game benefits.
Rather than adding new units to the original 5 races, like winter assault did, there is now the option of far more customisable commanders (with the upgrades shown on the model), for the Tau it looks like there is now the XV28 battlesuit as well.

Yup the Nightbringer is in the preview plus Shadowsun. Cant wait until mid-september. Tau & Necrons, two races to build,conquer and defeat. The Kroot look cool too ;D

Dawn Of War : Dark Crusade, nice name suits with the expansion.

Having obs- looked over the video a few times I think I've worked out they have handeled WBB too.

Seems that destroyed necron units hang around for a bit and can be rebuilt using the scarabs (workers) in the same way damaged buildings can be.

Hmm... two of these topics now.


I think it looks great. Too bad it won't come out for a long time yet.

I might be too obsessed with Warhammer: Mark of Chaos by the time this one comes along.
