Default DoW2 update - Eldar confirmed can send half da boyz home ;)

Other stuff:

- First appearance of Killa Kans, Scout Marines and Wartrukks.
- Sergeants level up and get "attribute points", which you can use to improve attributes.
- New abilities as you improve certain attributes.
- LIMITED AMMO - at least for Sniper Rifle. Might only be for special weapons?
- No healer units so far, health packs instead...which can be dropped by Orks and used by Space Marines. Yeah.
- No base building for campaign. You choose your load-out before a mission.
- Suppression is in.
- Assault Marines can destroy cover by repeatedly slamming down on it from the air.
- Real line-of-sight, troops behind a wall can't be spotted.
- Sergeants don't die, they just get incapacitated. Revived if another sergeant comes near.
- Reinforce with drop pods (only once per mission) or by taking over a shrine.
- A Warboss encounter is pretty RPG-like. He even drops a gun after you kill him.
- Squads can also "retreat" if they feel overwhelmed, like in Company of Heroes.
Community Portal with developer team info etc.
Screenshots Orks vs Marines

In before "no Nids"

Now all that's missing is Chaos.


You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...
