As promised, the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War demo is now available. The 319mb demo comes with a tutorial, a full mission from the game and two skirmish maps. The game's official website can be found at www.dawnofwargame.com. Thanks GameSpot, where they also have a "Final Thoughts" Q&A with producer Jonathan Dowdeswell.

  • I played 40K a few years back so this game brings back all those good memoried :D

    GODDAMN the battles are fun to watch. I saw an assault squad (the jetpack guys) completely annihilate an orc squad and when the final guy in the orc squad charged the sergeant of my squad took his sawblade and EXECUTED the orc in a single motion. It dropped to its knees in front of my sergeant with the rest of the squad in a semicircle around it.

    The force commanders KICK FUCKING ASS. Enemies FLY when they are struck.

    When artillery strikes hit the ground enemies fly backward large distances and there's a crater left in the ground.

    I'm not a big RTS fan, but I predict MUCH FUN with this game :D


    Currently, the default texture settings for Team Color are optimized to account for AGP bandwidth issues that may occur during online multiplayer games with more than 4 players.

    To over-ride this extra level of mip dropping and view the team colors at maximum texture quality, add the following line to your Root\Local.ini file:


    Please note that this setting is not officially supported, and may result in severe performance issues. It should not be attempted unless you have a very high-end system (1024MB of RAM and a 256MB graphics card).
