Warhammer 40K 'Last Stand' mode to be stand-alone title


The popular 'Last Stand' co-operative mode from Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2 will be made available as a stand-alone downloadable title tomorrow, Games Workshop announced today. Of course, the subtitle to the game is "Retribution," which then gets its own subtitle for this new release, making the full title (ahem):

"Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution- The Last Standalone." Or W40KDoW2RTLS for short.

The game is scheduled to be released through Steam tomorrow for a cool $10. Since it's a stand-alone title, you won't need a copy of Retribution to play it. If you do get hooked from the little downloadable taste, though, you can bump it up to the full version for a reduced price.

"We saw this as a unique opportunity to introduce new players to the Dawn of War franchise as well as expanding the player base for the already popular Last Stand mode," said producer Jeff Lydell in the announcement.
