Steam has announced a weekend sale
worthy of attention, offering all Warhammer 40,000 universe games
and all related materials (namely, extra downloadable content) for 75% off retail price until 10:00 AM (PST) Monday. For those unfamiliar, the Warhammer 40,000
franchise on Steam includes the Dawn of War
real-time strategy series as well as the first-person-shooter Space Marine
In terms of actual games, the sale specifically includes the following:
- Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Gold Edition, which includes the original core game as well as the first expansion.
- Warhammer 40,000: Dark Crusade, the second expansion with two additional races and a new campaign.
- Warhammer 40,000: Soulstorm, the third expansion with two additional races and a new campaign.
- Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2
- Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 - Chaos Rising, the first expansion to the sequel including a new race and new campaign.
- Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 - Retribution, the second expansion with another additional race and a new, restructured campaign. Note that Retribution is a stand-alone expansion and includes all playable races without needing either the core Dawn of War 2 or Chaos Rising.
- The Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 Complete Pack, containing the core game and both expansions at a discount rate.
- Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, a FPS game set in the same universe as the RTS series.
Beyond the games themselves, also included are eighteen individual DLC packs that allow for additional army customization and co-op heroes, as well as the Dawn of War 2 DLC Bundle
which includes all eighteen packs for a single discounted rate. Note that the most recent expansion, Retribution
, is required for most in-game DLC.
