Dawn of War 1.3 details

Concept art for the original game.

The featurelist for the 1.3 patch of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War has hit the net, via the Relic Forums.

One of the major additions to the game is a Spectator mode, allowing for viewing of multiplayer games. This has been added because the game has been chosen for one of the official titles of the World Cyber Games tournament.

There is also a new in-game management system for custom mods, and a buddy list. Performance has been increased, and numerous bugs squashed - although none of them apparently particularly serious.

Additionally, Relic have tinkered with the balance of the races a little. It now takes longer to build an Ork Wartrakk, whilst Tier 3 base improvements for the Space Marines are easier to get, amongst other tweaks.

The expansion pack to the sleeper hit, released late last year, is due to be on the shelves by the Autumn.
