That's freaking awesome. I'm so happy that they are adding the bugs to DOW 2. I love the Nids they're so cute and adorable ;) I just hope they don't make the Carnifex a relic unit.

Also, is it true that there will be characters in the game? I would love to unleash fury with Abbadoobadeebe in DOW.

From what I understand, Chaos won't even BE in the game

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Nice to see nids are in. Apparently the original DoW engine couldn't do them justice, thus they were not included in earlier games.

All is dust...

What?! How come??? Well, actually I guess it can make some sense. Instead of all out war and senseless war like in DOW Dark Crusade (I mean, you can't tell whether the IG or Blood Ravens were evil), maybe there's actually a storyline to it rather than campaign in Dark Crusade.

Chaos aren't in the game.

It won't be mod friendly, like DoW is. If you want a DoW TT experience, there are TT round ups, but there is Firestorm over Kronus in Beta Developement. It's insanely good, although the Scar (AI) Scripts are pretty convoluted atm, causing some lag.

Campaign is a Branching, and as far is already known, is Space Marine only.

Characters in the Game is probably limited to Special Characters, although Gabriel makes a Return as the Blood Angel Chapter Master, guiding you, your own Character.

Those who have played the RPG and Heroes mods will enjoy this - you gain experience for your squads, and can tool them up with extra benefits, equipment found can be given to your Sergeants which will go to either tooling up your Squads (I believe Assault Squads start off without jump packs - go figure), or given to yourself, making yourself extremely powerful.

Base building has less emphasis. You have your squads, and if one squad is completely killed, have another Sergeant/your Brother captain go over, and revive him.

Listening Posts are now objectives - either give artefacts, provide intelligence, or can call down reinforcements/orbital bombardments.

Environment is destructable - Explosions make Craters, OB's make the Impact area Melt etc.

Also, it's apparently closer to Codex as well, so a Heavy Bolter won't do Jack Shit (for the most part) against a Deffdread, for example, but a Bolter will literally make a Guardian Explode.
