New race to come: Dark Eldar
Not a lot of info out yet, though.

The nids would have been interesting to see, but apparently the game engine couldn't really handle them as they have too many complex parts.
I think a lot iof people will wonder why they didn't update the engine and release a DoW2 rather than churning out expansion packs. Me, I couldn't be happier; horray for games my slow, slow computer can play!
thats Great! Hopefully they remove the unit limits and try to balance the game right by adding not subtracting features which they have been doing since the first game. Thats what I mised in DC. The customizable tanks and four squads of stormtroopers. That is coold they are doing the Dark Eldar of all races. Which races ae left to do?
SAH-WEEEEEEET! wow, i hope they give all the other races a few new units / characters as well, i predict thousand sons for chaos, mayby a Leman R Demolisher, mayby a LR Crusader.
Ork's should get a stompa gargant.
my knowledge of necron, eldar and tau ain't so good, so i don't know about them!
I guess they made DE and not 'nids because they'd get accussed of copying Starcraft
Dark Eldar are a great addition to DoW. I would have preferred them to the tyranids anyway, dawn of war needs to get more emphasis on faster units in my opinion.
I really hope they add bikes to each race, but somehow I doubt it.
Ork Warbikes, Eldar Jetbikes, Space Marine Bikers, Chaos Bikers, Imperial Guard Rough Riders, Tau Piranhas, Necron...well necrons have filled out their codex, nothing new from the 40k universe. Maybe we'll see the Deceiver, or some random forgeworld thing (like the fence).
Right now the game focuses to heavily on whoever has the bigger guns, you simply line up 1853 style and open fire.
And if they drop the unit caps they would have to make some drastic changes. Winter Assault was horrible, Marines went for termies and assassinated the enemy base. Eldar went for Fire Prisms. All other races were inferior. Dark Crusade fixed that nicely.
Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!
If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
I don't see the problem with them doing Nids.. i mean.. just look at the Reapers and drop pods in SCII.
Dark Eldar might be interesting.. i just hope that their voices are better than the Eldar

This seems odd and contrary to everything I've heard over the past year - they should really be working on Dawn of War 2 instead of another expansion and heck, if Blizzard can optimise their games to run on almost anything then so can Relic. I have to say Dark Crusade was a step up in that regard because it allowed my computer to run on medium as opposed to low settings, plus it improved the framerate in massive battles. Very well done imo.
