Welcome to Librarium Online!
to play the expansion Soul Storm, do you need to download the Dawn of War package first?
like in warcraft, you download the regular package then you download Burning Crusade
As far as I know, no you do not. Each 'expansion' is in itself a stand-alone game.
At least, that's the way it worked with Dark Crusade...
You do not need every other DoW expansion. However, I believe to play different races then the 2 provided w/ Soulstorm you do need the other games.
And not all of those games were a stand alone game. Winter assault required the original DoW.
Short: all DoW games are standalone (save winter assault). Once you have one game you can play all races in single player that was release in that expansion or any time before.
You need the expansion which introduced the race you want (ie. you need Winter assault installed to use IG or Dark Crusade to use tau or necrons) use the race in a multi player game.
That wasn't so hard
