The Dreadnought to be unleashed in Warhammer

January 21st, 2012 by bash Comments


Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is to unleash a new DLC called The Dreadnought.

The new content will be available on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Network, and the PC on January 24 (in the US) and will see content such as a new multiplayer mode and three fresh maps. It will be available in Europe on all platforms on January 25.

The new mode up for grabs in the content is Dreadnought Assault. In this game mode, teams will work to capture and control a central location. The victorious will be granted the help of a player-controlled Dreadnought, armed with high-powered weapons and tasked with capturing key locations to score points for its side.

In addition to the new game mode, the Dreadnought DLC includes three fresh multiplayer maps: Desolation, Dome Mechanicus, and Chem Refinery. New achievements and trophies are up for grabs in the content as well.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine gamers who don’t purchase the Dreadnought DLC will also score new content. A new multiplayer capture and control mode will be available to all next week for free. This team-focused mode has gamers capturing and defending areas to amass points.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
