Default Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War -- Soulstorm

Browsing the PC gaming sites today and I came across this rather tasty quote:

"Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War -- Soulstorm
An exclusive first look at the third expansion to Relic Entertainment's future-warfare real-time strategy game. The new expansion introduces a new race to the fold: the Dark Eldar"

Unfortunately that is all it has to say as it is from a preview of an upcoming print mag. Here is the link though: http://www.1up.com/do/minisite?cId=3162768

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?

I'm with Dark on that one - I can't see it either.

On the actual topic Dark Elder is the last race I expected to see in the game. I would have thought Lost And The Dammed would have come before them or =I=. Interesting - could this herald a resergence in the DE on the tabletop aswell?

Yes, yes people rumors have indeed arrived on a new, third expansion for my beloved Dawn of War. Games for Windows magazin appearantly has a preview in the coming issue and even had a small snippet of info inline for a few minutes.



Appearantly Soulstorm will focus on a full new race - the Dark Eldar. Right now the online response is very mixed, many people moaning about why DE stuff (shame on you ;), others thinking it to be a hoax and others (like me) hoping that it is true and is a filler between now and when DOW2 comes. Also rumored the expansion will contain much more than just 1 new race.

One of the other rumors out there is that this expansion may have been outsourced, appearantly this was in a blog by some uk magazine writers...naturally it was deleted in a matter of minutes.



Translated from 4gamers.de
"Those who prefer the futuristic Warhammer 40k universe over WWII might get more in the near future - after DoW:WA and DoW:DC there is a new addon in the works called Soulstorm.

This promises a preview in the upcoming GFW issue, which claims to have gotten an exclusive look at the Expansion. To wet your appetite they feed you a tiny bit of information: They are going to give an overview over the new units of the Dark Eldar race. Wether the addon is going to be stand-alone like DC is unknown as of yet, it's probable however.

If you believe the rumours, this third DoW Expansion will not be developed by relic Entertainment. More Information will most likely revealed by THQ by the end of the month as they should be announcing this new title at the same time the preview will be available."



Will as always these are just rumors, but the magazine does state they have the exclusive preview as shouldbe true enough. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope that the end movie of dark crusade is a sign of the stuff to come in this expansion. Dark Crusade on a system scale :lol:

Still looks real and beautiful enough to me!

As for the choice of race it's not that weird;

- witchhunters - was the only other real new option
- daemon hunters - grey knights are already part of sm army and would just be borrowing units from IG and slapping on a =I=
- tyranids - relic has clearly stated this will not happen as the feel the current engine can't do them justice...but the they did call dark crusade dow2...and said there wouldn't be another expansion after winter assault...and after dark crusade
- dark eldar - I'm so happy about this choice, especially after find this small pic...nightwing, very cool building and a nice feel of how the new dark eldar coming end next year will end up looking...hopefully!

And happy international talk like a pirate day guys.....aaaaaarrrrr

It doesn't say that exactly on the linked page. The quote I put up was from the various gaming news sites out there so I am assuming a mass email about it was send out. Here is what it does say at that link:

" More RTS Coolness from Relic!
COMING SOON: The makers of Company of Heroes and Dawn of War spill exciting new info on their next release"

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?

It was on there at first (see pic a bit up), but it was taken down and replaced with some farcry 2 stuff.
