Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Dark Crusade (WMV, 5.9MB)- right-click to download

THQ and Relic have confirmed that work has started on the second expansion pack for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, and we have the very first footage.

Known as Dark Crusade, this update is set in the middle of the bitter battle for the remote planet of Kronus and once again pits commanders of Orc, Space Marine, Eldar, Imperial Guard and Chaos units against each other. But something lurks beneath the surface of this barren outpost: the Necrons, a race whose only aim is to harvest the galaxy's life-form for their own evil ends.

And it is these skeletal warriors who will provide the backbone of the expansion pack along with the addition of the technology-driven Tau troops, a wholly new solo campaign and a dynamic map that rewards players as they seize each section.

But if one picture is worth a thousand words then the trailer above should contain more info on the game than you could ever need. Or we could ever type. So go on, get downloading.
