The next expansion in the Dawn of War 2 series was announced today.

Dawn of War 2 Retribution !!!!

No longer will we be forced to play Blood Ravens, we can now play different races for the single player maps. New multiplayer units, maps, and...

NEW PLAYABLE FACTION!!!!!

Who could it be? Dark Eldar? Tau? Crons? IG? DH/WH? Squats?

Time will tell as Relic makes more announcements at a later date.

Now I just need to hold out till March 2011 :headbutt:

Edit: Looking at the Logo for Returibution in the trailer the I is shaped like the =][= from the Inquisition. Could we be seeing Demonhunters or Sisters for this expansion? I really hope so.

AWESOME!!!. But in all fairness, its their recruiting worlds so who's gonna win?, the Space Marines as always.

Edit: I see that ][ now. If they add those arrogant whores called the Sisters of Battle then im going to be disappointed, come on Dark Eldar!.

I want Ork and Chaos Marine campaign, hopefully they'll bring Eliphas's original voice back for this one.. and give him his old armour back... and make him a Word Bearer again. A lot to hope for.

I was about to say about the =I= logo in that... Infact, check about the 28 second mark of the trailer, then the 40 mark.... marine looking units in white and black with 'robes'.... SOB? Or am i mistaking cultists?

edit: just watched the Hd version.. I was mistaking cultists. lol.

But, reading the release blurb... It says: "The apparent betrayal of the chapter by Gabriel Angelos and his Space Marines has shaken the Blood Ravens and now the Imperial forces are beset on all sides by hostile aliens. Retribution allows the player to select the race of their choosing in a battle to determine the very survival or destruction of the entire sector."

That certainly says that the =I= may turn up.

Maybe this is further conformation that the GK are being released in January this year. To act as a new faction.

I wonder if the Inquisitor Mordecai Toth will show up again as the investigating inquisitor?

Any chance we will get to control more than 10 blokes? maybe have vehicles or build bases? or is this gonna be a point and click boredomfest like the other two in the series?
they should rename the game "handbags of skirmish 2"
looks like the single player will remain the same though I am hoping for some changes to multiplayer.

Surely this will not work with all races. Nid missions for example are all about eat those defenders followed by more defenders since that is all that batch is meant to do.

Sorry, looks like you won't be able to build pretty little bases or spam units and send them in en masse like other RTS's.

This what i think the =I= means as far as a new playable race. SOB-god i hope not, Grey Knights-would be cool but no, Deathwatch- Oh Hell Yeah, thats what i hope the new race is. The reason i hope it's the Deathwatch is because the would fit in better than the Greay Knights because they work in small numbers where as the Grey Knights are a much larger force.

Thank Gork an' Mork^ i was sick of that kind of combat with DoW. DoW2 IMO, has a really good thing going.I would like to see Necrons or Dark Eldar, and for the love of all that is green i hope that the SOB will not be poping up soon. Space Nuns!? do they get a "that time of the month bonus?"Celestine, the Living Saint<---no thank you. Nothing like a Space nun helment to make your bosspole stand out.

I really hope that relic and THQ dont drop the RTS after the MMO hits. About the MMO lol oh boy im not looking forward to some 8 year old screaming "for the Emperor!!" as i frag 'em ta zog! I think for me the MMO will be like my 2 month WoW kick, after 60 days of being called a dick hole by some kid who is up pasted his bed time, im done. Also lol the RTS can teach some good skills, like get your ass in cover or "damn nids! i better shot before they get CC on me!".
