Continuing on with their release of new Last Stand content taken from Dawn of War 2, Relic have announced a new hero character, the Tau Commander! This is the first true addition to the Last stand I would consider a proper feature to be honest. Skins or extra weapon sets are nice but they seem mostly aesthetic, where as a new hero with his own wargear and style of play should provide some new team dynamics and challenges.

It’s a bit on the pricey side but then, there is voice work, modeling and animation and wargear upgrades so I would judge this more worth it than some skins and apparently plenty of people opted for those. I can’t help thinking the micro transaction/downloadable content additions to this game mode is somehow a toe in the water for Dawn of War 3 which is confirmed to be in development at Relic.
