Chaos Rises In Dawn Of War II

The Chaos Space Marines enter the fray in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising, bringing new single-player and multiplayer content to the acclaimed real-time strategy game.

Chaos Rises next spring, when THQ releases the next chapter in the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War saga, Chaos Rising. The Chaos Space Marines, a dark mirror to the regular, non-chaotic but sometimes a bit untidy Space Marines, are a new playable army for Dawn of War. Battling the traitorous he traitorous Space Marines of the Black Legion is only the beginning, as THQ's vice president of global brand management Kevin Kraff explains.

"Chaos Rising delivers a tremendous amount of new content, including the powerful Chaos Space Marines, new multiplayer maps and units, a new level cap and a continuation of the Blood Ravens single player campaign. Relic's passion for the Warhammer 40,000 universe and talent in crafting innovative RTS games will ensure Chaos Rising is an engaging experience that will advance the franchise and genre."

Yes, there will be new units across all armies, and the level cap is being upped from 20 to 30. With that much more power on the battlefield, Chaos Rising couldn't be a more appropriate name. THQ is aiming for a spring 2010. Those of you interested in a sneak peek can check out the December issue of PC Gamer, due out in the middle of next month.

    "Aiming for Spring 2010"

    I am guessing you meant Spring in America so that's somewhere aroumd March-May next year this gets released??

    Pity they chose the Black Legion. The Alpha Legion or my personal favourites The Thousand Sons should have got the position!!!! :(

    Either way this is an awesome addition to the game!!

      I find it a bit odd it wasn't Thousand Sons, given the not-overly-subtle links between them and the Blood Ravens. Oh well. My response is still thus:

      "yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!"

      (and also: "I hope I don't need to download pirate patches to get my legitimate copy to work like I did for Dawn of War 2...")

    At least its not another Khorne based legion.

    I'm still hanging out for WH but I doubt thats going to happen. More balance in multiplayer and I'll be happy with this game regardless of anything else. The new maps will be welcome. Couldn't give to craps about chaos sadly :(

    BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
    DEATH TO THE FALSE EMPEROR!

    ...

    yeah, i'm a bit happy at this news.

    Awesome SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE.

    Now i just need to see the Imperial Guard become a playable faction along with the Tau and Necrons.

    I wish we could get some more campaign goodness though for Chaos from their perspective, Spess mehrins are good and all but i need to get my demon on.

    im so sick of the word 'rising' in titles for things.

    jimE fest VII: erection rising - out fall 09, rated R for retarded
