Never mind the fact that Retribution is about four and a half years old, and never mind the fact that adding gore to a Warhammer game seems mildly superfluous.  This new DLC gives those who delight in the visual chaos of combat another reason to dive back into the game's many co-op campaigns.  We thought Retribution was pretty rad, so any excuse to cooperatively guide a few hardened squads through battle (including the wave-based Last Stand mode) is plenty.

Join Us for Some Dawn of War 2: Retribution - Last Stand Co-OpNick Puleo

With twelve heroes to choose from, each vastly different than the others, there's a lot of replayability here. The matches are quick and fun and the strategy required to defeat each waves really becomes apparent rather quickly.

Today, Dawn of War II: Retribution, the expansion/stand-alone follow-up to the 2009 co-op hit Dawn of War II, gets a little DLC loving in the form of new achievements (and gear) for the co-op friendly Last Stand mode.  The promise of shiny new toys and achievements wasn’t enough to stem the desire of three friends to mercilessly put down waves upon waves of foes… or try to, at the very least.

Relic earned my personal Co-Op Game of the Year vote back in 2009 with the original Dawn of War 2. After one great expansion, can they keep the magic alive? Let's take Retribution for a spin and find out.

We've done some ranting and raving here about Dawn of War 2. From an interview about the original Dawn of War 2, to a video review of its expansion, Chaos Rising, to co-op nights and no too few This Week In Co-op sessions, DoW2 has gotten some significant play-time around here. I think it's fair to say we enjoy it. Good news for us then, because DoW2's stand-alone expansion, Dawn of War 2: Retribution, releases tomorrow. DoW2: Retribution will be abandoning the Games for Windows support in favor of Steamworks. The campaign will also let you play as more than just the Space Marines (yay!), letting you also control the Tyranids, Chaos Marines, Orks, Eldar, and Imperial Guard in full co-op support.

It’s time now for some new Dawn of War 2: Retribution info that should get the mouth watering for most of us, once again. First on the agenda is a great collectors edition of Retribution, complete with all six races bonus wargear, poster, and race cards in a nice bundle. If you’re just not into that sort of thing and you’re especially in love with a particular race, you’ll be able to buy the individual race edition of Retribution at the normal retail price.

Dawn of War 2's latest "expansion pack" was announced quite some time ago, but we haven't been covering it all that much because until today - it was unconfirmed if the game would contain the same co-op campaigns as its predecessor.   So the good news is that yes, all of the races that have a single player campaign in Retribution will also be playable in two player co-op.  That includes the Tyranaids, Blood Ravens, Orks, Chaos Marines and Space Marines.  There is still yet an un announced race for the game.
