Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been looking around the web recently for information on the Dawn of War: Winter
Assault game and I've been very impressed with what I've seen so far.
Some of the new additions to the game are:
and if you can believe it: Marauder Bombers. (You can call in an air strike with your commander and Marauder Bombers show up and pound a target)
I was reading a couple of reviews on different web sites and they are saying that IG are the perfect Turtle army, in that they have defensive emplacements and abilities that are just unmatched in the game.
They said that this makes it a little more difficult to take resources but, that with a little finesse you can move to a new resource and quickly set up some defensive positions.
On thing of particular note is that you can build bunkers for your guard squads and this apparently makes them impossible to kill until the bunker is destroyed, which is very cool.
Anyhow, does anyone actually know when this damned game is going to be finally released?
Sounds great, looks great (from the pics I've seen.) If only DoW would work on my comp...
They aren't taking it out at all. It's still in the game. I only listed the NEW units that weren't in the original game and since Leman Russ tanks were in the original, I just didn't add them.COOL, mararuder bombers.eh? that gonna be very cool to see...why have they taking out the leman russ? its there main tank.
I'm really looking forward to playing the IG in a computer game, especially as their own seperate race, and I'm very glad that they were chosen instead of any of the other races. It's about IG had their moment in the video game industry and this is it.
hehe....duh how stupied of me not to figure that out :huh: , I have the first trailer they released of the addon and man the sentials look huge compare to the leman russ and the hellhound tank, woof the inferno cannon looks brillent it was sitting sweeping up khorne bezerkerz sending them like a few ft in the air. Also the firepower of a few baslisks looks very very nasty.
Also you dam right about it beening the time of the imperial guard, to be honest i would have loved to see tyranids, perhaps thats the next idea of the addons, if they do bring another few after wards.
Pierced53: I know what you mean, man my pc is a peice of junk and cant run any games, but hopefully next friday ill have enough cash to afford a new one :cool:
The Space Marines are also getting a Chaplain and Orks are getting power armoured Nobs..not soo sure what new units the Eldar are getting if any.I keep hearing rumours about Chaos getting Berzerkers but I really doubt it. There's also a strong possibility the IG will have sanctioned psykers. Originaly Relic was planning on adding them and giving them a move that caused the target unit leader's head to explode, but I'm not sure yet if they've been included in the game.
Update to my last post - At this point at least, the Berzerkers are in the game. I managed to get ahold of a few screenshots of Imperial Guardsmen standing in a pile of Berzerker corpses.
(sigh) Dawn of War sounds like its getting better and better.
Any idea if they're planning on releasing it for Mac?
