Listing Detail Tabs

The single player campaign of Dawn of War II is played from the perspective of the Space Marines in the Aurelia Sector. The story follows the adventures of a newly promoted Force Commander and his crew as they take back and crush invading legions of Orks, Eldar, and Tyranids (the other three factions in multiplayer).

Dawn of War II's singleplay focuses on controlling squads headed by unique character types. Players will select their squads and loadouts before a battle and then select a conflict zone from a world map to engage the enemy. Rather than build bases and amass gigantic assault forces, players will instead use their initially selected units and squads to essentially complete the entire mission. By the end of the campaign, 6 squads become available for deployment but only 4 can be selected for each mission.

Retribution has taken a new turn for the Dawn of war 2 series and added campaigns for all factions, including the latest addition, the Imperial Guard. Each campaign is about the length of the previous expansion, Chaos Rising, and revolves around their own set of heroes. The war for Aurelia is now being presented from each faction's perspective, with their own agenda and role in the fate of the system.

The base structure of the singleplayer has also now changed. Instead of just having a team of four squads, you could instead opt to build and upgrade an army, or even do both, depending on your play style. The army building option includes the new units from the multiplayer mode for each faction.

The additional variation also factors into the mission types. Missions in Retribution will now come with more meaningful story based objectives, instead of the basic "go to point A and kill thing B." The player will instead experience missions more in line with the lore of Warhammer 40,000, like being a filthy alien trying to survive a battle with an Imperial Baneblade super-tank.
