Default Dawn Of War II: Retribution Pre-Order

Well, it's finally up for pre-order. At the moment I think just on the THQ store but should be up everywhere else soon. Also I wasn't expecting race packs.

Quote:
Warhammer® 40,000®: Dawn of War® II - Retribution™ is now available to pre-order! There are a number of different options available so here is everything you need to know about what to get and where to get it from.
There are six individual race packs one for each of Space Marines, Orks, Eldar, Tyranids, Chaos & Imperial Guard. Each of these race packs will come with unique in-game content for the specific race involved and will sell for a RRP of $29.99. The Ork pack is exclusive to STEAM and the Tyranid one is exclusive to THQ.com, all other packs are available at both retailers as well as all other good digital distributors.
You can buy a race pack from THQ.com or STEAM.
If you can’t decide what race to back, or simply want everything then the Dawn of War® II - Retribution™ Collector’s Edition is the version for you. This limited edition version of the game comes in an exclusive collector’s box and includes six race art cards, a poster and all of the in-game content from all of the race packs. The Dawn of War® II - Retribution™Collector’s Edition is available while stocks last exclusively for pre-order from THQ.com for a RRP of $39.99.
Customers in North America can pre-order the Collector’s Edition here.
After launch, gamers will have the option of purchasing the in-game content provided with the individual race packs digitally through STEAM for a nominal fee.

So... no news on what the unique content for each race pack is then? Guess I wont be placing any orders until they actually tell me what I'm getting for my money...

(Is it just me that's getting really irritated by the whole pay extra for downloadable content thing? OK, fair enough, in most games it's very optional and it's pretty small new levels/new outfits etc, but if this is a new Unit for each race in DoW II then lots of people will consider them pretty compulsory. On the other hand, I guess if they play that seriously they'll be ordering the collectors edition anyway...)

EDIT: The steam page does seem to have the exclusives listed:

On Steam, you can see what is in the packs. But is just Singleplayer Equipment...

Yeah, saw that one steam just after I posted - must have been editing as you posted. Interestingly, I can't even see a way of choosing what race pack you want on the THQ site...

Looks like the Imperial Guard one gives some of the most useful benefits, though I play mostly Space Marines... hmmmm.

Is the Collectors Edition only available from the Internet, or will I find it on the shelves of my local gaming store?
