The co-operative Last Stand mode from Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution will be released as a standalone downloadable title expected to go live on 20th April.
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution- The Last Standalone will allow new comers to play all of the content available for the Last Stand without the need to own a copy of Retribution or any experience with RTS games. Players who then wish to experience competitive multiplayer or the single player campaign for Dawn of War II – Retribution can then upgrade their product to the full version at reduced price.
Jeff Lydell, Producer of Dawn of War II Retribution commented: “We saw this as a unique opportunity to introduce new players to the Dawn of War franchise as well as expanding the player base for the already popular Last Stand mode.”
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution- The Last Standalone is scheduled to be available to purchase from Steam for $10 on 20th April.
