WAAAAAGH! Space Orks in Dawn of War II Retribution
I just had a nerdgasm. Relic and THQ announced at Gamescom yesterday that the in the next expansion of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II series, sub-titled “Retribution”, will finally feature playable armies other than the boring ass Space Marines in the single player campaign, and up first are one of my favorite races…Space Orks!
If you’re not familiar with the concept of the WAAAAAGH!, it’s essentially a holy jihad + pub crawl that the Orks begin in order to further propagate their species and to have fun…because let’s face it, these are the fun race to play as in any WH40K campaign.
I’m thoroughly excited to see what the guys at Relic have up their sleeve for the next race. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the Orks…but I really want to play as Tau or Imperial Guard for once!!! We’ve had enough of the blasted Space Marines and their fight against the warp.
The expansion drops on March of 2011…and we’re all thrilled.
