Gameplay

Playable armies at the initial release of the game include the Space Marines, Orks, Eldar, and Tyranids.

The gameplay of Dawn of War II is markedly different from that of Dawn of War and its expansions. Jonny Ebbert, the game's lead designer, describes the feel of the game by saying that it "takes everything that was great about the original and combines it with the best that Company of Heroes had to offer." There is a heavier focus on cover, which gives more substantial defensive bonuses. Accordingly, there is also new emphasis on methods of dealing with units in cover. Some weapons, such as grenades and other explosives, can destroy cover, while others, such as flamers, ignore cover bonuses completely. Other differences between Dawn of War II and its predecessors include improved unit AI (squads under fire seek cover, for example), more realistically sized vehicles, and an improved physics engine.

As a Games for Windows - Live game, the game uses the Achievements system from Xbox LIVE, and is the first widely released, PC-exclusive game to use it. Because of this, a player must be able to connect to the Windows Live servers in order to access the game's multiplayer features. The game also requires authentication via Steam. This dual-platform requirement is unique to the game.

Expansion

Chaos Rising

An Expansion named Chaos Rising was announced on September, 18th in a gaming magazine podcast.

Prior to the announcement on PC Gamer, several moderators for various fan sites were sent Warhammer 40,000 Chaos Terminator Lord Miniatures. The boxes the miniatures came in had the Blood Raven chapter logo with the number MMX on them. At the annual UK Games-Workshop Games Day, it was annouced that the expansion would be released in Mar. 2010 (7 years ago).

Reception

Dawn of War II has received a mostly positive reception, scoring an average of 85% on Metacritic.com. Most reviewers have praised it for its fast-paced tactical gameplay and impressive graphics, while criticizing its small number of multiplayer maps, and lack of variety in single-player campaign missions.
