Default WH40k: Dawn of War II - Retribution Announced

THQ sent out a press release announcing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution PC, an upcoming standalone expansion for their sci-fi real-time strategy sequel. Due for release in the first quarter of 2011, the game will have a multi-race single player campaign in a storyline that takes place years after the events of the first expansion.
Taking place years after the events in Dawn of War II: Chaos RisingTM, this title allows players to choose their perspective with the first multiple-race single player campaign in the Dawn of War II series. The first race to be revealed is the savage Orks, but no matter which race is chosen players will be taken on an epic journey through each story arc, revealing the answers to many questions left open in previous Dawn of War titles.

As well as the single player campaign, Retribution will feature new multiplayer units, maps and an entire new playable faction when it ships. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution is scheduled to be released for Windows PC in the first quarter of 2011.

About Retribution It is ten years since the events of Chaos Rising and Sub-Sector Aurelia has been in a constant state of warfare with the Imperium struggling to retain control. The apparent betrayal of the chapter by Gabriel Angelos and his Space Marines has shaken the Blood Ravens and now the Imperial forces are beset on all sides by hostile aliens. Retribution allows the player to select the race of their choosing in a battle to determine the very survival or destruction of the entire sector.

This game rocks, good to see them continuing support.

The trailer indirectly hints at IG or Inquisition.

Im feeling the pirate hat is just a tad too far.
Sure, the orks are a comical lot and mainly rely on scavanged tech and equipment, but hey..
who did he lift that hat off? Space Pirates? Captain Space Beard?
