While a proper Steam Summer Sale has yet to be announced, gamers can get their Warhammer 40k fix from the latest Steam deal. "Warhammer Weekend" features several 40k games, expansions, and DLCs for 75% off. The entire Dawn of War franchise is on sale, as well as Space Marine. If you're into giant dudes in badass armor spouting nonsensical holy rhetoric while murdering space orks, this is the series for you.
Amazon continues its streak of solid deals on downloadable PC games. This time in their "Farewell to February" sale they have a handful of co-op titles for some low prices included the recently released Darkness II and last years hilariously awesome open world game, Saints Row the Third. Both of those games are only $25.
Steam's midweek madness sale this week is all about Dawn of War. All Dawn of War titles are 50% off - this includes the two player co-op Dawn of War 2 and the game's expansion - Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising. Another stand alone expansion pack is in the works as well titled Dawn of War II: Retribution, though this isn't offered at the 50% discount price. You can snag all three games, plus Dawn of War Gold, Dawn of War: Dark Crusade, and Dawn of War: Soulstorm all for $60.
The other day I was asked what I thought of Dragon Age by one of my buddies. I sat for a moment and finally admitted “I have it, but haven’t played...” Why would someone do that? I have a strange quirk where I don’t like starting games unless I have time to finish them...
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.
Steam is having a weekend sale on Dawn of War 2 and Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising. The two player co-op RTS from Relic was one we certainly loved and the expansion pack was equally as entertaining. If you haven't picked up either yet - you can snag both in a Gold edition for only $20, or you can snag the expansion pack for $10.
The latest expansion for Dawn of War 2, which will be in Beta form early next year, has officially dropped the Games for Windows Live support in favor of Steamworks. Dawn of War II: Retribution will make use of the Steamworks community features such as matchmaking, achievements, guest passes and chat capabilities.
We begin a new mini-series of articles today. The purpose of "This Week In Co-Op" is to rant and rave a bit about what we've been playing, but, oddly, there hasn't really been much about staff team-ups. That ends today, and for the next few weeks, you'll be finding an article written in true co-op fashion by two of our staff members. This week, we've got Mike, artist extraordinaire, podcast host, and new daddy, and Marc, senior editor, retro gamer, and a somewhat older daddy. So what did these two fellas get into this week? Well, it turns out, being a daddy means it's hard to find free time to play co-op with each other.
Tomorrow night is our Games for Windows Co-Op Night for Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising. To get you in the mood we put together a video review of the expansion pack of the RTS game. The review examines just what's new in the expansion, and gives you a look at the Chaos Marines in a way a video review only can.
It's time for another official Games for Windows co-op night, the first we've had in sometime. We'll be playing Dawn of War 2's expansion pack, Chaos Rising. Read on to find out how you can earn yourself exclusive war gear, only available in the game's co-op mode.
This last few months of gaming have been kind to retro co-op games, and I can think of a few warm-n-fuzzies I've felt recently. This weeks On The Download will aim to spark a mushy retromance with some of the recent vintage downloadables. We also want to hear what you'd like to see remade.
While there are certainly enough new releases these days, of both the co-op and non-co-op variety, to keep a gamer busy for awhile, some of last year’s best co-op titles are seeing new life these days with expansions. Chaos Rising, the first major expansion to last year’s excellent co-op RTS title Dawn of War 2, arrived last Thursday and we could hardly wait to check out all of the new features it added. Those looking for a great add-on piece to an excellent co-op game won't be disappointed by this expansion, but players who are seeking a bit more than a fun diversion may want to think about holding off until the price drops a little.
The first major expansion to Dawn of War 2, Chaos Rising, is just around the corner so now seemed like a good time to hop back into the original as a bit of a refresher and to spend some more quality time with a game that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. I saw that Jackel was looking for someone to co-op with and thought, “Perfect! What better way to hop back in than through co-op?” It certainly turned out to be an interesting trip back to Calderis, Typhon, and the Angel Forge.
You've saved the planets of sub-sector Aurelia from the Ork Hordes and Tyranid Swarms, but are you now prepared to battle with the terrifying forces of Chaos? You better be. Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising, the first major expansion to the title that was the runner-up for our 2009 Co-Op GOTY award, arrives tomorrow, and it brings with it a raised level cap, new missions, new weapons and armor, a new corruption mechanic, and new characters for the Last Stand mode. Steam is still running their pre-order special where you can get the expansion and a free copy of Saint's Row 2 for just $29.99, or you can pick up the expansion for just $2 less (and help support your favorite co-op gaming website) at Amazon. Rejoice, co-op gamers! Your journey towards absolution or damnation begins tomorrow!
Last year during E3, THQ and Relic unveiled an action game set in the Warhammer 40k universe. It was called Space Marine, and by all accounts it was Dawn of War 2 from a 3rd person perspective. The preview at the time hinted very strongly at co-op in the game, and while we're still no closer to finding out any details, we do have the first screenshots from the game.
