Dawn of War II expansion revealed

Chaos Marines! Level 30! Standalone!

THQ has announced a standalone Dawn of War II expansion called Chaos Rising.

Due spring 2010, the add-on introduces the Chaos Space Marines, as the Blood Ravens tackle this demented, old and personal foe head-on.

Relic's doing the honours, according to THQ's website, and allowing Blood Raven squads to be imported from the original game for the new 20-mission campaign.

The level cap, therefore, has been boosted 30, and there will be lots more loot to collect. Blood Ravens can even equip Chaos-tainted wargear, although doing so apparently has "dreadful consequences".

Similarly, multiplayer is getting a lift, as Relic offers the Chaos Space Marines as a playable faction. New units are also arriving for the existing Ork, Eldar, Tyranid and Space Marines sides, and there will be extra maps to explore.

Head over to our Dawn of War II review to read what the game is all about.
