posted in NEWS, VIDEO | Posted by Angelinux

As (probably) all dawn of war 2 owners knows, today should be released via steam the free download content Last Stand. Happy gaming. 😉

The Last Stand is a cooperative survival mode that gives gamers control of an individual hero unit and drops a small multiplayer team into a battle with impossible odds. Players can choose between a Space Marine Captain, Eldar Farseer or Ork Mekboy and will team up with two other squad-mates in an attempt to hold out as long as possible against wave after wave of relentless attackers.

Hero units level up and are fully customizable as new armor and weapons become available from game to game. Every new unlock gives your hero unique abilities or passive skill traits exclusive to The Last Stand. Working together to devise innovative strategies is the key to success in this brand-new battle mode.

Each wave in The Last Stand is significantly more difficult and deadlier than the previous wave. The Last Stand is addictive, fast-paced, and full of relentless action. Play for survival or play for high score, both will earn you a place on leaderboards for ultimate bragging rights. The Last Stand is the third pillar to campaign and PvP game modes in Dawn of War II. It’s an online battleground for players of any skill level.

    Wow this is one of the few games ive bought this year and it has not disappointed. Last stand is super fun and challenging it could use more gear, since you only gain it by gaining levels not by finding them or random drops. However for the most part this game is amazing 2 thumbs up 😀

  2. Dow 2 is a good game but could have been better.

    -Great graphic, full of effects, the miniatures are perfect.
    -Innovative and fast gameplay (no base building but someone actually liked it)
    -Last Stand mode is real fun.

    -Very few units, i totally miss the Baneblade and the Necron’s Pyramid (obelisk?)
    -The single player campaign is boring and pointless (but i must say i like multiplayer only in most games)
    – double pointless online system (steam-gfwl)
    -very few maps and only 3v3 mode so far (4v4 in data-disk?)

    Imo Dow2 is a rushed game, Relic was brave to try this ‘new’ game formula rather than go the old one style like sc2 or redalert 3, will see how the game evolves and what contents the expansion will add.. Chaos Rising so fare adds only a new army (Chaos) and i will buy it but not at the current price (32 euro)

    StarCraft 2 will be a better game than Dawn of War 2? I dunno, i doubt it, what’s sure is that sc2 doesn’t have the space marines!
