Relic’s Dawn of War II, standalone cooperative game mode, The Last Stand, is set to get a new player character for gamers to control, the Tau Commander.
The video showcasing the new character says that they wanted to make him quite varied. Apparently the roles that he can fill include a:
walking death machine, a disrupt force or a support system for his allies
This is dependant on the wargear selected of course, with the general statistics of the character making it incredibly powerful offensively, while remaining quite weak defensively. IE. You’ll still most likely need a tank in your trio of combatants.
The Tau Commander will be available at the end of October, with pricing yet to be officially announced.
