Since THQ and Relic first produced Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War four years ago and over the course of its three expansion packs, fans have clamored for the addition of the Tyranid race. However, Relic argued that the alien Tyranids, an insect-like faction, were too complex for the graphics engine. So when THQ and Relic announced Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, fans hoped that the new graphics engine in the sequel could finally deliver what they've wanted.
Well, there's finally some good news on this front, because Relic is announcing in Leipzig today that the Tyranids will indeed be the fourth faction in Dawn of War II when it ships early next year. To get the very first details, we caught up with senior designer Philippe Boulle. Meanwhile, make sure to check out the newly revamped Warhammer CG trailer below, now with hot Tyranid action.
