Warhammer 40k: DOW II gets free DLC

New co-op survival mode on offer.

THQ has released The Last Stand, a free downloadable content pack for real-time strategy title Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II.

The add-on features a new co-operative survival mode that lets you control an individual hero unit - either a Space Marine Captain, Eldar Farseer or Ork Mekboy. You must then team up with the rest of your squad to hold out for as long as possible as you face endless waves of attackers.

The Last Stand also comes complete with an automatic update which includes two new multiplayer maps, balance updates and bug fixes.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II scored a healthy 8/10 on Eurogamer when it was released back in February. Read our review for the full lowdown.
