Tyranid Gameplay Trailer
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.

    I'd actually take Tau over Space Marines. But obviously that would never happen, ever.

    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.

    Oh Tau are easy to describe, COMMUNISM IN SPACE!!!!!!!!

    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.

    So, baseless speculation at the other races! My guess is Chaos (just to easy not to put chaos in when you have space marines) and......Tyranids. 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.
    Fuck your IG.

    Boy I am going to take you out back and shoot you if you don't stop bitching

    You are such a girl
    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.

    Necron are shit. They are the most boring army in existence and their fluff means they did virtually everything, which just makes them worse.

    I still stand by the current two confirmed races, Chaos Daemons and Tyranids for DoW 2. Tyranids more than anything as they truly deserve their "go". Just as long as they are well implemented that is.

    Just like women and the Sisters of Battle, tyranids have no place in the Dawn of War universe because they were never mentioned in past games so if they put tyranids in, I'm going to be so mad. Relic would be ruining their franchise.

    The only thing I hope for in DoW2, is that Relic don't crap what looks to be a terrific game up with an abortion of an expansion that throws the baby out with the bathwater, aka Winter Assault the game. Everything I've read they've really nailed it, I just hope they stick to their guns and not listen to the whinging morons*.

    No, really, fuck IG. It's not even the plasma or HWT, it's that they're boring. They're a cartoonish WW2 army and that's pretty boring. Yes, normal people fighting huge monsters and stuff, woo, but then they have huge, costly tanks for some reason. Maybe if each guy got something to help them not die so much instead of a huge, silly tank, they'd be able to do anything but die. That, and plasma.

    Also, that's single player. I'd almost bet that multiplayer has bases like normal.

    Not that I know of. You can fortify buildings (eg CoH as an example), but bases are not implemented into the game at all as far as anyone knows. The whole thing actually has a very distinctly tabletop feel to it, with Cities of Death as well thrown in.

    This is a very GOOD thing.

    Don't get me wrong, I hope they don't have bases. But then I also hoped that harlequins would be useful and look how that turned out. I'm also hoping for more customizable armies, too, but that won't happen either.

    How can you say that? Starcraft has base building and it's the best and deepest RTS around.

    Now, if they had base building and also implemented real tactics like flanking and scouting unlike any Relic RTS so far, maybe they'd get close to a Blizzard RTS, but probably not.

    After reading "no base building," I immediately thought of Ground Control 2. It has strategic points that create resources, and new units enter the game via dropships and various contested landing zones. It worked pretty well. Now hopefully the four races create enough gameplay diversity in terms of the types of strategies they can pull off without being too unbalanced.

    And that his units can actually be killed by plasma.

    You know what can ruin my rangers without too much trouble? Any race that has anyone playing that's not retarded. It's pretty simple.

    And Eldar aren't really all that much like elves but they look and act like them on the surface so why not!

    Edit: Wait, WW1 tactics? Tanks were the focus of WW1? I must have missed something there.

    I haven't played the TT game since 3rd edition I think but eldar = elves was a pretty straight translation, they had higher movement and lower toughness just like the elves in the warhammer fantasy game plus the aspect warriors are kind of elf fluffy..

    that being said I would be sad to not see eldar in the intial DoW release because the army is awesome and just has so much character

    Space Marines, Orks, Eldar, Tyranids is what I'm hoping for..

    glad to see this thread and people actually caring about this game.

    According to the fluff...

    IG uses trenches a lot. A LOT.

    And really, you're just sour because IG can kill your rangers without any problems. Drop that anywhere scan thing and goodbye rangers.

    Or those turrets.
