Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War Franchise Is Free To Play This Weekend On Steam

SEGA announced today that from September 24 10AM PDT through to September 27 1PM PDT, Dawn of War I and II, plus all expansions, are free to play on Steam. In addition, the publisher announced that both titles and all expansions are 75% off until September 28 at 10AM PDT.

As a special thank you to all its loyal players, and as a welcome to anyone new to the franchise, SEGA has also added some bonuses to DoW I and II.

  • The Temple of Cyrene is a brand new, official multiplayer map we’re adding into the Dawn of War I rotation. This map will be playable in DoW I, as well as the Dark Crusade and Soulstorm expansions. The Temple of Cyrene sits on the blasted landscape of a world scoured clean by the Exterminatus of the Imperial Inquisition. Homeworld of Gabriel Angelos, Cyrene is now a ghost-world of ruined cities and ashen fields. Fight for supremacy amidst the remains of Cyrene’s once-mighty temples. Claim the three critical locations at the heart of the ruins or drive into enemy bases and deliver annihilation.
  • In Dawn of War II, we’re giving away four free sets of Wargear; The Vanguard, Sniper, Sternguard, and Destroyer, to equip in the main campaign that were previously only available as pre-order DLC, or as rare loot drops. Now everyone will be able to equip items like the Veteran’s Grenades, Blade of Ulyus, Armor of the Destroyer, and many more to complete your sets!

The Dawn of War franchise includes Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, and the Dark Crusade, Soulstorm, and Winter Assault expansions, as well as Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II and the Chaos Rising and Retribution expansions.
