About This Game

Dawn of War II, Last Stand is a three player cooperative survival mode that is also available as a stand-alone game!
You select a single hero and face off against waves of enemies with up to two other teammates. Play as one of the six available heroes and gain experience points to level up and unlock new wargear abilities. Customize your character’s abilities to create the ultimate build and fight off twenty waves of increasingly devastating enemies.
These are not the usual heroes known from the campaign. These are super-powered characters that are capable of killing dozens or even hundreds of enemies during a game.

How long will you last In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future where there is only War?

Key Features

  • Heroes: Farseer, Mekboy, Captain, Hive Tyrant, Chaos Sorcerer, Lord General
  • Progression: Gain experience with every battle and level up each race’s chosen hero
  • Customization: Customize your hero with unique wargear and abilities to create your own unique build
  • Co-op: Team up with two other friends and master each arena’s waves of enemies
  • Leaderboards: Track your rating against other players and see how your build matches up
  • Maps: Play on two distinctive maps and hold the ground against 20 waves of enemies

Chaos Sorcerer

The Chaos Sorcerer is an offensive spell caster, who makes between teleportation and even more destructive abilities. This hero is recommended for more experienced players since he can be very fragile. He can be played as support hero, as a damage dealer or hybrid of both.

Farseer

The Farseer is mainly a support hero that relies on her capabilities to cast protective buffs as well as hide her allies or teleport them away from danger. The main abilities of the Farseer are Confuse and Veil of Tears which causes enemies to attack each other. The Farseer is also capable of cloaking and teleporting friendly units.

Mekboy

The Mekboy is a ranged teleporting damage dealer. This hero is easy to start with as the required equipment becomes available early in the progression system. He can also be used as a suicide bomber that unleashes devastating amounts of damage.

Captain

The Captain is an all-round hero that is good in ranged and melee combat, while various abilities are mainly focused on melee combat. This hero is able to call-down the might Dreadnought to support him and his allies against the enemy invaders.

Lord General

The Lord General is a defensive specialist who is capable of deploying different types of buildings and infantry squads to assist him and the team. Equipped with these abilities this hero allows the player to explore many different strategies that lead to victory.

Hive Tyrant

The Hive Tyrant is a slow but hero that cannot be suppressed or knocked down.
This hero’s strength lie within his brutal melee weapons that will slice enemies apart and his ability to summon units of Tyranids to the battlefield make him a powerful addition to any team.

Shas’O Commander

The Tau Commander is an offensively potent hero that fires at range and is vulnerable in melee. In order to compensate for his melee weakness the hero has the ‘unshakable’ trait permanently active and carries a jump ability that enables him to stay on range to his foes.


NOTE: The Shas’O Commander is not part of the Last Stand offering and has to be purchased separately here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/56493/

Ok so what i said before about the D.O.W 2 series still stands but releasing only the last stand mode for 10$ was a brilliant move! Take the most popular aspect of the game and say "1/3 the game 1/3 the price"
Another winner move by THQ that makes me think that this company is just doing things right. Hopefully in the near future they will be able to contend with (and eventually knock over) companies like EA and Activision that frequently spits in the face of P.C gamers.

Kudos THQ another great move!

3 random people meet in the middle of an arena not to kill one another but to work as a team to survive. Epic game mode for D.O.W.

One of the better uses of 10 bucks I've spent in awhile. Basically, this was the only part of Retribution I was looking forward to so... perfect.
I just wonder how future Last Stand updates will be integrated/payed for...

Strategic and chaotic 3 player co-op survival with RTS controls. You have one unit and can customize it however you want, building with strategy in mind to make the best unit for your team. You then take this unit and throw it together with your two allies, and try to survive wave after wave of enemy hordes.

Each character has a set number of slots to equip items, and each time you level up you get another item. You can pick whatever combination of items you want, but some definitely go better together than others. Just when you think you've got your build completely figured out, you get something new to try out, which keeps you playing (often long after you wanted to go to bed). Every character also has one or two pieces of equipment that can be unlocked by completing certain achievements.

You can switch between your 6 different characters while in the lobby, and while they all get different abilities, there's enough combinations of equipment to have any character take on any role.
