The Last Stand is a cooperative survival mode that gives gamers control of an individual hero unit and drops a small multiplayer team into a battle with impossible odds. Players can choose between a Space Marine Captain, Eldar Farseer or Ork Mekboy and will team up with two other squad-mates in an attempt to hold out as long as possible against wave after wave of relentless attackers. Hero units level up and are fully customizable as new armor and weapons become available from game to game. Working together to devise innovative strategies is the key to success in this brand-new battle mode.
The Last Stand download also contains two new multiplayer maps, balance updates and bug fixes for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II.
Here's a cinematic trailer and the first screenshots for the DLC, which doesn't seem to have a price listed just yet. (EDIT: Because it's FREE. My mistake. Propers, Relic!)
How does this stuff strike you? Ready to dust your copy of the game off now, or have you been playing it all this time? I still hope I can try it someday.
