Sorry if this is a silly question, I do not have any other Dawn of War games but I like the look of this one.
I've tried to find out everywhere if this game requires the other Dawn of War games or not but I couldn't find anything.
Does anyone know?

Any help would be appreciated. :D

My bad :<

Is there anything I get as a bonus or anything I miss out on if I have or do not have the other Dawn of Wars?

I've *heard* that buying CR without the original game will result in only the Chaos faction being available for play. Can anyone confirm this?

i'd get it with Dow2 if it's only $10 diff, DoW2 is awesome. this is a 'standalone' expansion.

This is correct. Same as it's been for the whole series.

It installs on top of DOW2. Like a DLC. Different from DOW1 and xpacks.

A link to what? Its in the manual for the original DOW expansions. I think i remember seeing a scan of that page somewhere online. Ill work on putting it here.

And here it is! http://www.relic.com/misc/buggo/dcfaq.jpg


Now, as for Dawn of War 2, I cant find a link to anything, but it says here in the manual "Existing Dawn of War II players get access to new units for Space Marines...."etc which leads me to believe that if you have just Chaos Rising, you just have access to the Space Marines in single player, and the chaos marines in multi/skirmish. You might get regular marines in skirmish too, im not sure

Now that the game is out, can anyone finally confirm this?
