John Erikson writes "Warhammer: Dawn Of War was a hugely successful real time strategy game and developer Relic have been hard at work on the much awaited sequel which is due for release in a couple of days time. There are some key changes set to breathe life into the franchise and today we will find out if it has been worth the wait.
Relic have broken with tradition and you no longer have to build bases to complete the objectives. They have adopted aspects of role playing titles in which you control squads who are able to move from mission to mission and grow and evolve while keeping their equipment and skill sets from previous battles. They have also lifted the cover elements and destructive environments from Company Of Heroes and the capture point mechanic for resource acquisition is also in place."
