Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm invites the player to take command of two new factions, the Sisters of Battle and the Dark Eldar, and fight with a new resource derived from the souls of the faithful and the fallen.

The game can be played alone, or combined with Dawn of War, Winter Assault and Dark Crusade to make the biggest RTS around.

The Orders Militant of the Adepta Sororitas, known informally as the Sisters of Battle, are the female warriors of the Adeptus Ministorum, te church of the Imperium commonly known as the Ecclesiarchy. This group venerates the God-Emperor of humanity who sits immortal on the Golden Throne. Thousands of Psykers go to their deaths on a daily basis to sustain the Emperor, and in return for this terrible price, he protects the human race from their implacable foes.

The Sisters of Battle are primarily concerned with seeking out and purging heretics and rogue Psykers, viewing them as unclean abominations. They are also responsible for converting humans on inhabited worlds to worship of the God-Emperor which they accomplish through their missionary units. Their intense zealotry allows them to channel the Emperor's will into devastating abilities called Acts of Faith, allowing them to quickly turn the tide against dangerous adversaries.

Every Ecclesiarchal warrior wears power armour not dissimilar to their brethren in the Space Marines, though they lack the latter's cybernetic upgrades or genetic altering. In battle they tend to favour heat and flame-based weapons for their purifying effect. This makes them especially dangerous to infantry units who crumble easily in direct assault against the Sisters of Battle. Finally, the Adepta Sororitas can call upon their Living Saint, a venerated Warrior born on wings of purity who smites the heretics with bursts of holy flame.

And then there's the Dark Eldar, an assortment of debauched and low-down dirty pirate types. Ugh!

Suffice to say, Warhammer has its enclave of fanatics that will lap this up. Newcomers are advised to pay a visit to Games Workshop for starters…
