Retribution is the second standalone expansion for RTS/RPG Dawn of War II. It introduces a new playable race, the Imperial Guard, and a story set ten years after the events of Chaos Rising. There will also be a tiny bit of base-building, which was left out of Dawn of War II and Chaos Rising.

Retribution will bring its new single-player campaign to all six races. And when you pre-purchase the game, you get special war gear for one race of your choosing. Or for ten extra dollars, you can purchase the Collector's Edition, which includes the war gear for all six races and a bunch of other cool stuff like art cards and a poster.

Expected Release Date : March 15, 2011

Shogun 2 is the next game in the Total War Series, featuring combat that mixes elements of turn-based and real-time strategy gameplay. It has an engine that can support up to 56,000 soldiers in a single battle, so you can bet these skirmishes are straight up epic.

Following the footsteps of Shogun: Total War rather than Empire: Total War, Shogun 2 is completely set in feudal Japan. The game includes courtyard skirmishes and naval battles with Japanese warships that are basically floating castles. And on top of all this, you will command upgradable generals who give encouraging speeches before battles.Ridiculously large armies and enhanced AI promise to make this an awe-inspiring title.
