News just reached us that THQ is releasing the Last Stand feature as found in Dawn of War II as a standalone downloadable game to cater to potential new players. The aptly named ‘Dawn of War II – Retribution – The Last Standalone’ allows new players to dive into the game by experiencing the popular Last Stand mode – no RTS experience necessary. If a player decides this game is his cup of tea, he can easily upgrade to the full version.
This seems like a smart move to lure in new players to the Dawn of War series in general and to the current Last Stand community.
The game is scheduled for an April 20th release and will be about $10 on Steam.
