Expansion to 2004's RTS Game of the Year Unleashes All New Single and Multiplayer Combat in the 41st Millennium

CALABASAS HILLS, Calif., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- THQ Inc. (Nasdaq: THQI) today announced that Warhammer(R) 40,000: Dawn of War: Winter Assault(TM) has reached the gold master stage of development and is entering manufacturing. The highly anticipated real-time strategy (RTS) game is the expansion pack to last year's critically acclaimed Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War. Winter Assault brings a deeper single player experience, a new playable race, The Imperial Guard and four new units for each of the existing races, to the franchise. Developed by THQ's Relic Entertainment, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Winter Assault is scheduled to begin shipping to retailers worldwide on September 19, 2005.

"The response to the highly visceral combat action in the original Dawn of War was a huge part of the feedback we received from fans," said Ron Moravek, general manager of Relic Entertainment. "But we also wanted to make sure we listened to what our players wanted more of, which is why we are featuring a very deep single player game and a new race that will give multiplayer games a whole new dimension in terms of strategy."

Dawn of War: Winter Assault is based on the world of Warhammer 40,000 -- the dark, futuristic, fantasy universe from Games Workshop (LSE: GAW) traveled by millions worldwide. For more information on Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Winter Assault, please visit http://www.dawnofwargame.com.

Its an interesting thought, but don't get too excited. They may very well mean the 4 new units in total, one for each race.

I agree - it sounds like they just messed up their grammar a bit - and especially since we already know of four units total.

I would like to believe in 16 new units, but (aside from the impossibility of modelling, animating, coding, balancing, etc) unfortunately I don't think THQ's Marketing department would allow it. You sell product based on what's in it, and if there were that many new units, they would be shouting it from the rooftops. No, I'm happy with 4 new units, 1 for each race, with possible expansions following the same formula in the future wink

One note to remember: just because it ships September 19th doesn't mean we'll be able to buy it September 19th; it sometimes takes a day or two to reach the retailers. If you check with them they should be able to tell you the day it will go on sale.
