Enter the grim darkness of the future where there is only war, in the Gold Edition of the acclaimed real-time strategy PC game franchise, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II. Including both the original game, Dawn of War II, and the standalone expansion Dawn of War: Chaos Rising, the Dawn of War II Gold Edition challenges players to use the Space Marines to defend humanity from a variety of ravenous alien factions, as well as the traitorous Chaos Space Marines. The Gold Edition contains two single player campaigns, five factions to command in online multiplayer, a co-op gameplay options and more. It is the distant future and the Imperium of Man has spread across the entire galaxy, but our days of expansion are long past. Once, when the Emperor lead in battle, and the Imperium was unstoppable. Those days are no more. The Emperor has withdrawn to Earth to rule from his Golden Throne, leaving a thousand wars of attrition in his name where defenders die by the billions. There is little hope for support from Earth and humanity is losing the battle for survival. The only chance lies with the Space Marines, genetically modified warriors of superhuman ability and the pinnacle of human potential. But the Space Marines are few, the galaxy is large and enemies are countless.
