Lost amongst the ruins of a levelled city lies an Emperor Class Titan, a war vessel of untold power forged in the planet-wide furnaces of Mars, and revered by billions as the epitome of Imperial dominance. The one who controls it will command the power to destroy, or defend, a world. The Imperials will summon it to overcome great evil, Chaos will corrupt it for their own designs, Orks will destroy it in their bloodlust and Eldar will disregard it in their arrogance. The expansion pack to the award winning
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War will builds upon the most exciting, visceral, front-line battlefield ever seen in an RTS game. Winter Assault is one of the biggest expansion packs ever...

Winter Assault is an expansion pack for 2004's monster of a game, Dawn of War. If you don't already own the original game, THQ are also launching this as a twin pack Gold Edition which includes the original game and Winter Assault for only £5 more than this release.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War is a science fiction real-time strategy (RTS) game set in the violent, post-apocalyptic universe of the 41st Millennium. Command hardened troops, deadly vehicles and high tech weaponry with one goal in mind, the complete extermination of the opposition. Whether you lead humanity's finest - the Space Marines, the diabolic and villainous traitors of man - the Chaos Space Marines, the brutal and savage beasts - the Orks, or the psychic and technologically advanced alien warriors - the Eldar, you control the action and the fate of your race.

Winter Assault adds much to the original game. As well as tweaking the graphics, the developers have introduced another race. The Imperial Guard add a much needed defensive aspect to the game play. The Imperial Guard are, in reality, average humans whose role is to destroy the evil supernatural forces of the universe. Being mere mortals, they lack the brutish strength of a lot of the other races in the game (Orcs and Space Marines, for example) and to survive they are grouped together into huge armies.

The other races have also been tweaked providing the gamer with more variations to explore. We're also offered two campaigns (Order or Disorder) which pits Imperial Guard vs. Chaos and Eldar vs. Orcs).

If you still play Dawn of War at every opportunity, then you need to get hold of Winter Assault. And if you only dig the original out now and again, this expansion pack will have you back to playing into the small hours... you have been warned.

You'd have to be dead from the neck up to not enjoy this game.
