    Warhammer 40K to be expanded

    THQ and Relic have announced an expansion pack to the rather good Warhammer 40,000 : Dawn of War RTS game. Entitled Winter Assault, the expansion brings a new race, the Imperial Guard, to the Warhammer universe and is slated for an Autumn release this year.

    THQ Inc. and Relic Entertainment today announced the expansion pack to their critically acclaimed real-time strategy hit Warhammer(R) 40,000: Dawn of War(TM). Featuring a deeper single player experience and even more intense Dawn of War action, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Winter Assault will also include a brand new, fifth race -- The Imperial Guard. Based on the world of Warhammer 40,000 -- the dark, futuristic, fantasy universe from Games Workshop, the game is scheduled to release in fall 2005.

    "The response to Dawn of War has been overwhelming," said Ron Moravek, general manager, Relic Entertainment. "Combining the enthusiasm we're seeing from the fans with the ability to draw from the seemingly endless, rich content from the Warhammer 40,000 universe made the decision to create an expansion easy. We look forward to building on the Dawn of War franchise with even more visceral combat action throughout both the single and multi-player experiences."

    Of all the races they could have chosen, why WHY WHY, the imperial guard. There are so many other interesting races they could have choosen, we've had a lot of imperial guard units in the game in the space marine campaign. so I guess its just a cheap development effort

    I did wonder at the Imperial Guard myself, they're sort of in DoW already... Let's hope its more than just some extra levels, eh?

    Take the easy route by choosing a race thats already half done? Can't imagine them ever doing that....

    I just hope they're going to expand the existing races a bit too (I want terminators with cyclone launchers)

    They've released a few screenshots this morning here: http://www.relic.com/
    Now go away before I taunt you a second time.
