The Chaos Space Marines enter the fray in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising, bringing new single-player and multiplayer content to the acclaimed real-time strategy game.
Chaos Rises next spring, when THQ releases the next chapter in the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War saga, Chaos Rising. The Chaos Space Marines, a dark mirror to the regular, non-chaotic but sometimes a bit untidy Space Marines, are a new playable army for Dawn of War. Battling the traitorous he traitorous Space Marines of the Black Legion is only the beginning, as THQ's vice president of global brand management Kevin Kraff explains.
"Chaos Rising delivers a tremendous amount of new content, including the powerful Chaos Space Marines, new multiplayer maps and units, a new level cap and a continuation of the Blood Ravens single player campaign. Relic's passion for the Warhammer 40,000 universe and talent in crafting innovative RTS games will ensure Chaos Rising is an engaging experience that will advance the franchise and genre."
Yes, there will be new units across all armies, and the level cap is being upped from 20 to 30. With that much more power on the battlefield, Chaos Rising couldn't be a more appropriate name. THQ is aiming for a spring 2010. Those of you interested in a sneak peek can check out the December issue of PC Gamer, due out in the middle of next month.
