WH40k: DoW: Soulstorm Demo Out

Soulstorm


THQ/Relic/Iron Lore have decided to release a demo to the upcoming Soulstorm expansion to its Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War series of RTS games. The demo features a tutorial and two missions from the single player campaign. The Dark Eldar are the only playable race.

My early impressions thus far? Relic/Iron Lore need to ditch the air units. They sound good on paper, but the engine just isn’t suited for them. It’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Otherwise, I like what I’m seeing. The Dark Eldar look and sound wicked – as they should be.

The demo does not feature multiplayer, skirmish, or the “interplanetary scale” feature. It’s basically a showcasing of the new units added since Dark Crusade. Also, the demo is not without its bugs. I ran into simple pathing issues that simply were not found in Dark Crusade previously.

You can grab the demo from the link here:

Also, I’d suggest anyone who has played the demo to share your opinions over at the Relic News community forums. From what I hear, the devs actually pay attention to the comments made over there. Hopefully, this demo will serve as proper feedback from the community prior to the game‘s release in March.
