Early this morning, THQ announced the development of an expansion pack to [i]Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War[/i]. Entitled [i]Winter Assault[/i], the expansion pack will also include a fifth race which is being called The Imperial Guard. Developer Relic Entertainment is hoping to give players a deeper single player experience and more intense action in the process with the new race and additions to the game.
“The response to Dawn of War has been overwhelming,” said Ron Moravek, general manager, Relic Entertainment. “Combining the enthusiasm we’re seeing from the fans with the ability to draw from the seemingly endless, rich content from the Warhammer 40,000 universe made the decision to create an expansion easy. We look forward to building on the Dawn of War franchise with even more visceral combat action throughout both the single and multi-player experiences.”
[i]Warhammer: Dawn of War: Winter Assault[/i] ships this fall.
