At the same time, I do miss caring at a level beyond OTT war and mega-biff.

They were on the road to hell, I got the chance to viciously toy with their morality, and I had a vested interest in finding out who the style traitor in their ranks was.

That it does have, to some extent, in the co-op arena mode that is Last Stand, introduced yonks ago but updated with new heroes and loot here.
I wish it, not trad. You should absolutely play both. This has been the remarkable thing about DOW2 after its brave but slightly wobbly start — it positively embraces change. The maxi-splosion that is Retribution might not have the clarity of Chaos Rising, but it absolutely redeems any lingering sense that Dawn of War 2 is a smaller RTS.
This is as big and noisy as it gets. Retribution offers a campaign for every race, including the Imperial Guard.
The campaign takes place across Sub-sector Aurelia, which appeared in the previous two games. The worlds include the jungle world Typhon Primaris, the desert world Calderis, and the hive world Meridian from Dawn of War II; the arctic world Aurelia and the derelict ship Judgment of Carrion from Chaos Rising; and the dead world of Cyrene, mentioned in the original Dawn of War as having been subjected to Exterminatus complete sterilization of all life on a planet corrupted by Chaos or alien influences by Blood Ravens Captain Gabriel Angelos.
Setting[ edit ] Dawn of War II: Retribution takes place ten years after events of Chaos Rising. These events may have been caused by Gabriel Angelos' actions from the original Dawn of War game when he destroyed the Maledictum, a Chaos stone containing the bound essence of a daemon of Khorne, with the hammer "God-Splitter".Dawn Of War 2 : Retribution Eldar Campaign Final

Later, the faction leader is given the objective to eliminate Azariah Kyras who intends to use the impending Exterminatus as a sacrifice to Khorne and ascend to daemonhood.
The motivation varies depending on the player's faction, for example the Space Marines, Imperial Guard and Eldar wish to oppose Chaos, their ancient evil enemy; the warlike Orks simply want a good fight and to thump the strongest foes they can find; the Tyranid splinter wishes to overrun the sector and summon a new hive fleet to consume all the biomass; the Chaos faction are Kyras' rivals and wish to surpass him.
Regardless, it is deemed by the player faction that Kyras must die.
The player quickly attempts to secure a means of transport off Typhon, escaping a local cult along the way. Arriving on Calderis, the player character fights against Kyras' Chaos-corrupted Blood Ravens Space Marines, operating under orders to purge the planet. After destroying a Warp portal on Aurelia, the faction learns of an attack on Meridian ordered by Kyras and arrives there killing the traitor guardsmen and uncovering a transmission from Kyras revealing his location on Typhon.
Wary of a ritual they are undergoing, the player's character kills the Eldar there. Following this, Kyras reveals that the Eldar ritual was preventing the Imperial Inquisition fleet from arriving at the sub-sector.
The Inquisition fleet arrives, beginning Exterminatus on Typhon Primaris. The player escapes Typhon before the Exterminatus finishes.
A cyclonic torpedo reduces Typhon to ash. Finding themselves on the space hulk a huge conglomeration of drifting space-borne detritus consisting of many wrecked ships known as the Judgment of Carrion, the player's characters recover, and find their determination to stop Kyras. It is deduced that he is hiding on Cyrene, as the planet has already undergone Exterminatus decades ago, and therefore the Inquisition will not travel there to perform Exterminatus again. On Cyrene, the player characters launch an attack against a joint alliance of Chaos Space Marines, corrupt Imperial Guardsmen and traitor Blood Ravens by using their most powerful unit against them.
