Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Dark Crusade follows the original Dawn of War and add-on Winter Assault games with a world-spanning crusade for dominance between seven warring armies. The real-time strategy genre is a perfect match for Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe, based as it is upon a table-top war game, and Relic have won awards and plaudits for their interpretation of the highly-successful franchise. Unlike Winter Assault, Dark Crusade is a stand-alone game that can act as an introduction to the series as well as a continuation of a series of conflicts played out across the galaxy.

In Dark Crusade, the player takes command of one of the seven armies available: Space Marines, Imperial Guard, Eldar, Orks, Chaos, Tau or Necron. Each army has strengths and weaknesses, individual units and abilities and an objective that is specific to themselves. The game takes place over the persistent battlefield of the planet Kronos and is presented as a tale of historical events from the perspective of your chosen army. There are territories to conquer, secrets to be uncovered and units to be built and enhanced in this brutal strategy game. Your army is led by a commander who will grow in stature and ability throughout the campaign, claiming captured weaponry and equipment and even taking an honour guard with him into battle to become almost unstoppable by the end of the game.

With new units for old races, two new races for the series - one ancient and evil, the other youthful and righteous - and a gameplay system that builds on the already excellent Dawn of War engine, Dark Crusade has all the trappings of a highly successful game. And with seven different perspectives on a campaign that has a non-linear structure and myriad ways to play, this game will keep real-time strategy enthusiasts busy until the 42nd millennium.
