10,000 years have passed since the treasonous acts of Chaos toppled the Golden Age of mankind. Fires burn brightly throughout the galaxies, illuminating carnage and slaughter as mankind defends itself from ancient enemies. Hardened forces collide with one goal in mind, the complete extermination of their opposition.

In Dawn of War, you control one of four unique races in head-to-head or cooperative multiplayer action, where faith, skill, and strategy are requisites in ruling the universes.

Winter Assault features new troops in the form of the Imperial Guard, and new units like Chaplains. As well as that you, get 12 more single player missions and more multiplayer maps, and countless neat new touches like terrain features, improved urban terrain and more eye-catching set pieces. A worthy follow-up to a smashing RTS title, and you still get to stay well away from painted figures, MDF game boards, and funny shaped dice.

In Dark Crusade, you take 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.
