When Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution publisher THQ announced an assortment of downloadable content packs as pre-order bonuses, it said that they would be sold separately for "for a nominal fee" after launch. That promise has been kept as the 'Race Packs' were released alongside Relic's RTS today, priced at 99¢ apiece.
Each of the six Race Packs contains four Wargear items for characters to equip in the the respective race's single-player campaign. You can also buy the whole lot slightly discounted in a bundle for $4.99.
Several of the Race Packs were exclusive to different editions and retailers, leading to a lot of umming and ahhing over where exactly to buy the game--for me, at least. Turns out, I needn't have worried.
Dawn of War II - Retribution was released in North America today and will launch across Europe over the next few days.
