Following the critical and commercial success of its Games Workshop-backed real-time strategy title Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, publisher THQ has announced that its subsidiary Relic is busy at work on an expansion.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Winter Assault (another for the colon plus hyphen brigade) is due out later this year on PC, and adds the Imperial Guard as a new playable race.

Relic general manager Ron Moravek paid tribute to the fans who helped justify the expansion, commenting: "The response to Dawn of War has been overwhelming. 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," he added.
