Relic’s Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series is one of the longest-legged franchises in the whole RTS genre. At this point only Starcraft rivals it for online extensive online longevity. Now, Relic hopes its sequel will achieve the same timelessness. Dawn of War II‘s next major update, impressively titled “There is only War,” will be bringing a boatload of balance changes, bug fixes, and eight shiny new multiplayer maps. Most significant of all, however, is the addition of World Builder, a full-service map maker, allowing devoted Space Marines, Tyranids, Eldar and Orks to construct battlefields to slaughter each other on.
The builder will hit beta in early July, with the update making its glorious debut later this summer. Expect much carnage…and only war.
