Fight for Kronus playing as one of seven races

A review by Peter

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Dark Crusade is the second expansion of the base game Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War. It was released in October 2006 and offers two new playable races: the Necrons, and the Tau Empire, as well as new units for the old races. Unlike Winter Assault, Dark Crusade is a stand-alone and can be installed and used in multiplayer without requiring the original game Dawn of War or Winter Assault. However, a player with only Dark Crusade will only be able to choose one of the two new races when playing multiplayer.

Who will conquer Kronus?

The goal of the single-player campaign is to conquer a planet: Kronus. It is playable with any of the seven races. The world of Kronus is divided into territories. At the beginning of the campaign, the player controls a single territory, while the AI occupies three or even four. The goal of the campaign is to conquer each territory that will bring various bonuses to the player.

Each race has its own general

It is also possible to customize your general following victories, giving them upgrades and bonuses. The generals you can control are: Eliphas the heir to the head of the Word Bearers (Chaos), Commander Shas’o Kais (for the Tau Empire), Military Governor Lukas Alexander (for the Imperial Guard), Captain Thule of the 3rd Blood Ravens company (for the Space Marines), the great prophetess Taldeer of the Ulthwé world ship (for the Eldar), the Big Boss Gorgutz (for the Orks) and finally the Lord of the Kronus tomb world (for the Necrons).

What is Kronus?

Kronus is a former colony of the Tau empire. But the time of peace is over. Indeed, fighting has multiplied following an assault of the forces of Chaos, a Waaagh! Ork and the awakening of the Necrons after a very long hibernation. the Tau empire sent troops to pacify the situation while the Imperium turned their eyes towards the planet. There they sent the Imperial Guard to claim Kronus, while the Space Marine were sent to purge the planet of Xenos (non-humans) and protect relics. However, given the scale of the Xeno infestation, the Marines captain decided to purge the planet, putting himself in opposition to the Imperial Guard.
