  DoW 2: Distress Signals!! - Official News
  Posted by: Sl4sh on 11-24-2008 @ 11:30 - Source: Relic Entertainment
This News Item has been viewed 10,694 times
Hey guys,

This week, we get some sweet news regarding a new feature in the Dawn of War II campaign: The Distress Signal. Distress signals are pretty much what you would expect them to be, a call for help from a planet or a specific area of a planet; thus, answer the distress signals will deploy your squad on a mission in that area of the planet.

Before answering any distress signals, there will be a variety of data for you regarding the area that is under attack. In general, you will be given intelligence information of the specific nature of the distress signal, ranging from assassinations, attacking a territory, or simply an all out defense. Also, if there are any Stratagems, you will also be notified of them, along with any rewards for completing the mission.

All in all, since Dawn of War II's single player campaign takes place in a star system with a number of planets you can take battle in, there will be a number of distress signals for you to answer; however, the question is...of that many distress signals, which will you answer?

Why does the pic remind me of Isengard?
Anyways, can't wait for the release - in the meantime, i'll just have to look at the previews smile
If the planet's under attack from 'nids, where are they?

If i was in distress, i ask for $44.99 to buy the game! Now that would ease my financial stress from the Tyranid taxman! Nice concept. Bring it ON! My KIK BUM pc can take on a vast numbas of Tyranids without a nary slowdown! Bring it ON!

Clearly the most strategically valuable ones should be answered. It is obvious. Should there be economic advantages the most advanced of those should be taken also. But really it depends on your playing style. I myself am too cautious to risk an all out assault. So I would play a defensive and low risk game.

If you look at the top right is says the campaign score is -1.

The guys playing it must be $hit.

imagine the campaign is related to golf scoring, in which case -1 is a pretty damn good score

-Seriously though, its a screenshot from a demo, you dont know anything lol.
