Dawn of War II ‘There is Only War’ Update to include Map Editing Tool
'There is Only War' includes the official release of World Builder, the Dawn of War II map editor. Once the update is released, players can create, edit, and play on their own community-created battlefields.
What can I do?
World Builder lets you add victory points, power nodes, and requisition points under Urban, Desert, Tyrannoformed, and Jungle map tilesets. You can deform terrain, place cover objects, choose the weather, and define the size of the map. Maps can be released for two, four, or six players.
How do I use it?
When released, World Builder can be opened from the local DOW2 directory. It will also include a sample map and a documentation file explaining how to publish a basic map for online play. It is recommended to run World Builder on a PC that handles Dawn of War II on 'high' or 'ultra' graphics settings.
When is it released?
World Builder is yet another part of our massive 'There is Only War' update coming out later this summer, and will be available when the beta goes live in early July.
The tool is being released to further open Dawn of War II to the modding community, to give fans the ability to contribute new content and increase the longevity of multiplayer. We here at Relic are looking forward to see what you have to contribute, and can't wait to get pwnd while playing on some awesome community-created maps.
Get ready, for 'There is only War'!
