"The bitter war for domination of the remote planet Kronus rages between Tau, Orks, Space Marines, Eldar, Imperial Guard and Chaos whilst deep in their tombs beneath the surface the sinister Necrons are awakening after 60 million years in stasis. Now, in the 41st millennium, they have found a galaxy teeming with life; a galaxy ripe for harvesting."
Dark Crusade, the second expansion for the highly successful title Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, will offer the fans of either an epic RTS or the miniature RPG Warhammer 40,000, a great deal of new game content and new features.
The expansion includes two new playable races, the Necron and the Tau, brand new single-player campaign and expanded multiplayer components. The Tau are technologically advanced fighters with devastating firepower, while the Necron are die-hard living machines.
With the Necron race comes along an exciting new economy model, which offers both single- and multiplayer diverse strategies.
