QUOTE( "THQ Producer Sean Dunn")
The cat is out of the bag a couple weeks early, but yes, this information is correct. Dawn of War: Dark Crusade does in fact include the Tau and the Necrons. There will be massive amounts of video and screenshots coming out of E3, and I even will try and make our entire E3 presention available in HD online somewhere. I can truly say that I have not been more excited about the new races. I have never been a huge Necron fan, but not surprisingly the designers and artists have done an incredible job on both races, and the Necrons are a sight to behold!




The 2 new races for the upcoming Dawn of War expansion were announced yesterday, the Tau and Necron. For those of us unfamiliar with the tabletop game here are links to give us a better image. (Tau) (Necron) The Necron seem like an obvious selection since, they make an appearance in the Winter Assult solo campaign. I'm really curious to see the Tau since looking at many of their units, they remind me of the Orkz. I just hope they don't have their own resource type just like Orkz. Either way, they are both gonna be badass additions. One a bunch of zombie cyborgs, the other a bunch of tribal looking aliens.

This years E3 will undoubtly be the best there has ever been.

Actually it seems as if there was alot of discussion on weather Tyranids where going to be in this coming expansion. But they ultimetly decided no becuase they are so badass there was no way they could do them justice on the game. I'm not kidding you, thats what one of the developers or something said, haha. But looking at some of some of the figures I agree, the 'nids would have been a much cooler additon to the game. Who knows though, maybe if more people pick up Dawn of War we may see a 4th expansion with them in it!. With 7 different race choices, the variety in strategy in this game should prove to be quite vast.
