TYRANIDS

So Dawn of War 2. It's time for a more official thread on this wonderful exciting topic.

250px-Dawn_of_war_2_logo.jpg

What do we know so far?

-We have been told there will be four races! Annouced so far: Space Marines, Tyranids, Eldar and Orkz .
-Uses an upgraded version of the Company of Heroes engine so expect all your favourite things like destructible environments, cover all that fun stuff.
-Fully co-operative Campaign: Space Marine only (but supposedly very large)
-No Base building! Your troops carry over in the campaign and weapons and upgrades they find from killing enemies (like taking their weapons) will also carry over.

-Quote for the campaign shamlessly stolen from IGN:
"As far as the single-player campaign is concerned, Relic has decided to take things in a new direction, bringing in even more reward and progression mechanics from role-playing games than we saw in Dark Crusade. No longer is your playing field simply an expanse of territories on a planet (Dark Crusade) or multiple planets (Soulstorm). Instead, your troops, if you're playing as the Space Marines, now pilot a starship that can float between celestial bodies, taking on story-based missions in a nonlinear fashion. It's similar to BioWare's recently released Mass Effect, where your ship travels from system to system searching for distress signals and leaves it up to you to pick when and where to set down and engage the enemy."

-Control points is definitely still a feature, but not disclosed how or in what way.
-More lovely Sync Kills

So how about trailers? So far there is two, a teaser and a gameplay one.

    Four races?

    Thanks Relic, can't wait to pay 39.99 for all the other races every couple of months.


    Besides that, this is bought release day.

    To be fair Winter Assault was only 29.99 :P.

    Also, on the other side of the equation, what if they didn't add any more races?
    Well, balance would probably be less absurdly fucked up, and my wallet would remain fatter.
    Those are both positives in my mind.

    Yeah, as cool and as fresh as the other races were, they really detracted from the Devs giving any significant time towards balancing and smoothing out the existing game(s). I'm hoping 4 will be the final number.

They said they wouldn't put them in the original engine because it wouldn't do them justice, maybe they can handle it now. Failing that I'd hope to see Imperial Guard.

    Oh, I could go on and on and use special correcter-than-Camen math and everything, but I've done that a lot and it's always stupid.

    But what I was saying is that there's plenty of better armies than IG. Like Eldar or Necron or any of them.

    Needs more Dark Eldar!

    HAHAHAHAHA

    But seriously, don't do fucking Eldar. No one likes the Eldar. Just do The Space Marines, Chaos Marines, Orkz and IG. That way you have a balance between elite offencive, elite defencive, cheap offencive and cheap defencive.

    The desire to deprive some of our citizens of their rights—economic, civic or political—has the same basic motivation as actuates the Fascist mind when it seeks to dominate whole peoples and nations.

    If it doesn't include the Eldar I'll be sorely disappointed.

    But I'll buy it anyway.

    Besides, people will start demanding heads if the nids don't get a spot.

    My guess for the four armies is Space Marines, Hordes of Chaos (not Chaos Marines), Space Orks, and Tyranids. I am kind of expecting them to avoid the "olol moar marines, but bad" thing this time around.

    Yeah. A chaos army with a mix of cultists, traitors, marines and daemons would be pretty awesome.

    This is pretty much my dream lineup. I want big, slimy squads of Big Mutants and Traitor Guardsmen so I can relive my old Lost and the Damned army.

    Think the Zerg from Starcraft, except they are less insectile and more like Space Dinosaurs with chitinous exoskeletons. Also their weapons are bio engineered creatures grafted to them which exist in a state of induced agony.

    Also they are about 20x swarmier than the Zerg.

    Tyranids=Massive horde, with some big godzilla-creatures thrown in.

    I'm guessing that this is going to use the same setup racewise as DoW. They've got to have a balance between humans and Xenos, and I think Eldar have a higher appeal to people that don't play the game than say, Necrons would. Tau are kind of similar, they need lots of fluff to back them up. Eldar, meanwhile, are pretty straightforward. After all, even though 'Elves in space' is a dumb way to describe them, it's at least halfway accurate. You can't sum Tau or 'Crons up as effectively. Tyranids would be possible, but I've got a feeling that they'd seem too much like a ripoff of the Zerg (even though it's the other way around), especially considering the release date.

    Also, I think my favorite thing about the screenshots is the Assault marine jetpacks. That's exactly how jetpacks should look.

    Oh that's pleasant.

    I liked the original games mix of races. Seemed fairly balanced. I wouldn't mind seeing a few changes in the lineup though.

    Oh yeah, thats important to note. They eat everything. Everything. Planets left behind after their ravages don't even have an atmosphere, much less anything other than dead rock.

    But seriously this game will be awesome no matter what army they decide to put in, my vote is the nids and a mixed Chaos army because that sounds great.

    I'm guessing not. Either Eldar or Chaos will be taken out for the Tyranids. They'll be in DoW2, mark my words. The reason they've added other races to Dawn of War that weren't the Tyranids (seriously, Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle?) is because they said the DoW1 engine couldn't do them justice. And here we are, with Dawn of War 2.
    It'll have Tyranids. Mark my words.
