Wins what? Free DLC! All you have to do is rally your fellow fans together and log tons of hours on any of the three games listed above. The game with the most hours after Feb 20 gets the freebie, plain and simple. All titles have some co-op play, but we're a touch partial to Dawn of War 2, as you can see in our Dawn of War 2 Co-Op Review.

Dawn Of War II: Retribution Just Got Bloodier Thanks To A Surprise DLC PackEnoch Starnes

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.

Ok, in all fairness, the original Dawn of War was, in hindsight, a pretty average RTS game. But the sequel knocked it out of the park. The "Last Stand" mode that was introduced with the Retribution DLC is still one of the best horde modes I've played in any game across any genre. So go buy it, play it, and thank me in the comments later.

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.

Sure, you could buy some co-op game for the PS3, Xbox 360, or (insert other generic console here), but c'mon! We both know the truth. We both know that what you really want is a game on a platform where you can tweak those graphics all the way to 11; a platform that holds no illusions about install times, patches, or updates. Staffers Mike "pheriannath" Katsufrakis and Jason "OrigamiPanther" Love are here to point you towards the best hardware and software on which to drop some holiday green.

Today is the final day for Steam's Summer Sales - and it appears as though it's the highlights from all the sales over the past 10 days.  What does that mean?  It means plenty of co-op games, that's what.

Let's face it, with 18 co-op releases in June you are already broke.  I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you are going to be spending more money on games over the next 10 days.  Why?  Because Steam is having their annual Summer Sale.  These Steam sales are legendary for amazing deals on games.  Come August you'll fire up your Steam client and see dozens of games, their names and origin a hazy memory.  Playtimes in the single digits.  You'll wonder how this happened.

Do you love survival modes in an RTS setting? Or do you really love heroes in RTS games and would rather focus on playing a hero instead of micro-managing units? Or do you love the idea of DoW2: Retribution, but gosh-darnit, you have two other people you want to play with, not just one? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then great news! DoW2: Retribution's the Last Stand Mode, the mode that focuses exclusively on co-op, is now available as a stand-alone game for just $9.99 on Steam. This is the mode where you and two other friends try to outlast waves and waves of enemies, each of you only controlling one hero. As you progress in levels, you receive new equipment for your heroes. A recent update also added new achievements to this mode which also unlock new gear. We're big fans of the Last Stand around here, and Mike and Jason even recently did a This Week in Co-op on the DoW2: Retribution flavor of it.

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.

After giving Dawn of War 2: Retribution an impressive 4.5 just a week and a half ago, we're certainly happy to hear about how Relic plans to continue to support their fantasticly co-opable RTS. As it so happens, two servings of DLC will be offered up this coming Wednesday, April 6th.

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.
