Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War delivers a level of visual detail never before seen in an RTS. Hundreds of units clash on the battlefields of the dark future, unleashing massive destruction through a stunning battery of long-range weaponry before closing in for the finish. Incredible kill animations bring science fiction combat to life like never before, and the gritty future-gothic Warhammer 40,000 setting provides a striking tableau for the chaos and carnage of this grim, dark future, where there is only war!

Ultimate Apocalypse Mod

News - February to Early March

It is time to let the public know that the mod is very, very close to its release. At this stage, the UA mod team is hoping to do something special because of it. Within this month or March (at the worst possible scenario), the second to the last alpha mod internal versions of the mod and so on will be caught on video and displayed to the public as we are in definite need of public feedback, and definitely some finely tuned views coming in. We will not mention where they are or where they will get posted, so if you want to see live videos of "The Hunt Begins" public videos, then it is up to you to find them! xD Note that they will be posted at random times with continuous slow or fast updates and at no estimated time of arrival. :D

But here is the bad news. It may be or may not be (depending on the audience) a 1.74 patch. The grand release of 2015 (The Hunt Begins) is close to release, that, making a patch for something that will only last like 15-40 days seems like a good effort to be placed within the grand release itself. Avoiding the confusion of the difference between what 1.74 is compared to "The Hunt Begins" would be good, too, but it is up to you guys if you want to deal with the balances of 1.73 versions until "The Hunt Begins" is released. I'm not saying 1.74 patch is cancelled, I'm saying 1.74 patch could be cancelled if the audience just wants THB and if the team agrees to stick with THB also. Up to you guys! Do you want a 1.74 patch or wait a bit longer?

In other news:

Competition - UA Official Logo

Is now officially our new logo and will be displayed everywhere possible upon the THB release. We are very glad to replace our old logo, and very soon, this will be applied as our official UA mod logo! You can see more details here:


or click on the image itself above!!!

We are doing the contest again, and we already have three other logo participants willing to publish their items in the future! You can be one of them! ;)

A gist of what we can promise you THB will bring:

  • Inquisition Daemonhunters
  • Chaos Daemons
  • New advanced AI for all races, including but not limited to: improved competence and for some races, tactics the player may not expect.
  • AI relic unit and titan fielding error is fixed
  • Some AI with multiple strategies
  • More strategies will be applied to all AI after the THB releases (patches as there is not enough time)
  • Way improved build order + build base strategies
  • Less AI city building (less structures fielded until they get loads of resources)
  • All other factions receive new content
  • All other factions receive greater and better polish better than 1.73 version factions
  • Better gameplay
  • More encouragement of capturing Strategic Points + Critical Locations especially
  • More balance
  • Changed up music
  • Changed up and fixed main mod theme
  • New extended gameplay
  • Less spamming of relic units and titans
  • Elite units cost more, especially more required population
  • Relic units cost more
  • Changed up relic resource in general
  • More winconditions
  • More maps
  • Fixed winconditions
  • More abilities
  • More units
  • More structures
  • More research
  • More addons
  • More races
  • More fun

Now let us talk about the THB release:

THB stands for "The Hunt Begins". It is a grand release of 2015, not a patch, and the version number will be much different than 1.74, we're talking around version 1.8. The Hunt Begins is all about the Inquisition Daemonhunt versus the evil and twisted Chaos Daemons! All factions will receive new content, and there will be so much added to it, that took us over a year (almost) to achieve.

We know we said that THB would not take too long to get released, but fortunately, it is another 1.73 release as it is BIG, and even includes two new factions to play! All races were further polished and made nicely, plus what THB will bring is pretty much finished skirmish and is the last and final skirmish overhaul. It is official.

Version 1.73 was supposed to be skirmish overhaul and final, but then over time, we realized the flaws of most factions, and so THB revamps them to an all new and fun style. We know you will like all factions, at least better than 1.73, and we hope to continue the campaign after this! :D So THB release, full skirmish overhaul with two new factions. FUN! NExt grand release afterwords? Campaign and stuff. We'll see how it goes.

Keep in mind THB grand release will not be perfect. There will be bugs to fix afterwords like 1.73 release, and we hope to continuously patch it and patch it just like 1.73 versions. Only this time, you guys will have everything, so whatever we offer, you guys get immediately! :D

We cannot wait to see the THB release at last! Sorry it took us a while to post the news.

ok, lol. Ok heres the races for Warhammer 40,000: (i know because i collect tabletop ;))

*necrons (i collect em)

*spacemarines (ultramarines, the main spacemarine chapter) (i collect them too)

*tau (starting to collect em)


*imperial guard


*chaos spacemarines

*dark eldar

*witch hunters

*and many different chapters of spacemarines, heres lots of the em... Blood ravens, Deamon Hunters, Black Templars, Space Wolves, Raven Guard, Crimson Fists, Iron Hands, Salamanders, Revilers, Hawk Lords, Storm Lords, White Consuls, White Scars, Red Templars, Mentors, Imperial Fists and thats all of them that i know of.

*theres also different kinds of followers of chaos like nurgle, zeentch (i don know how to spell it as i dont collect them), khorne, and the other one ;) and different chapters of chaos spacemarines aswell like normal spacemarines, such as Iron Warriors, Emperors Children, Death Guard, and World Eaters, and thats all i can think of for them right now.

*also many different kinds of other races aswell, like imperial guard, eldar and orks, i dont know if tau and dark eldar do. I know for fact crons dont tho.

Ya 3500 dollars is costly, but its the most used Program for making things. I bet they use it to make most things in x-box 360 games, and ps3 games.

As for games you should get for your x-box 360, i wouldnt know because i dont have one, i have a ps3. But two you should get for sure (if you dont already have them) are Gears of War, and Halo 2. Ive played halo 2 and can say its a good game, as for Gears of War, ive heard many good things about, and some bad things, but more good than bad. Its pretty much only the online pla that has bad stuff about it. And halo 2 is just good inpaticular offline and online... except for Screaming elmos, there quite annoying ;)


p.s. i have no idea for what kind of map you could make :'( Sorry

dont push em master, there doing what they can. Id rather have a well done slow coming mod then a fast crappy mod. And im sorry i cant make you monkeys... i dont YET have the program, and i cant animate, texture or code, and i cant get the modelling program (3dsmax7), because it costs around 3 and a half grand. I will get it when im older tho, becasue im becoming a computer animator when i am older. Sure, you could consider us friends, and to take screenshots of your map, while your in the program press "print Scr" (a button on your keyboard somewhere) and open paint, then go up to the top and press edit, then paste. Then just save your pic and do what ever with it. If you want to send it to me, send it through email, my email is cody_bourgeois@hotmail.com. O and heres a tip, to make map making a WHOLE lot easier, press "ctrl+f", and "ctrl+k", this will turn the fog off, and the sky, making it eaiser to see your map while you make it. Just press them again to turn if back on.

well alright im not getting into anthing expensive but if u have it perhaps you could possibly make a few monkeys here and their just a suggestion i have a few mor like for a map make it mountainous im making my best map yet looks good should b finished in 2 days it looks gud the middle is jungle the bit b4 the middle is mountains of rok which seperates into 3 routes they all lead to the same place and hidden around their are "secret" artefacts which i havent made yet... but its good if i new how to take pictures of the map i would show u that only infantry can pass the quikest route. im guessin wes is friends now then ?i try to make maps where it isnt the same as all the other boring ones i thinks yours are good in paticular i've seen em and another thing gretihin with a cannon it looks a bit old and crp if u dont mind me saing because i no there stupid but the year 40,000 and they'd copy other races a bt mayb but woteva. but the other stuff looks gr8.If ur on my maps if u download em which i havent as there not made yet ask me about em as their is stuff hard to spot and u can get easily killed if not careful enough in sum or 1 of them i think it's white light the one im making now.

if u make the maps bye urself how does the team work then do they make maps in a map pack and say which ones u keep and throw away? i want to join if possibly if it dosen't cause u any trouble?
i have 1 Q: it sais stelath cover in an option i notice a lot of things and have good inititve i checked it out and it seems that when i make this type of cover it in the game sais that is does this - point1
-point 3
u might get wot im saying i hope but wtf is dat about? if u hover over stuff it tell u thighs like
- this unit is effective against this unit
u see wot im on about? for cover its that it protects against ranged attacks.etc.
ps i probably come ere to often dont i but i try not to make small posts they are gennereally long if u can be bothered to read 'em. i want to make a new race with monkeys in em! of different kinds. i presume u need the object editor and/or attribute editor to do this? if so :( but i could try it but it'll b a pain in the but.

Highest Rated (19 agree) 10/10

For 6 years now I have been playing Dawn of War. Modding it gave me that extra plus.

8/10 because it is a really good game. I am however ashamed that Relic stopped at Soulstorm.

10/10 because I always experienced something new in it.

10/10 100% warhammer

10/10 for Dawn of War I and Winter Assault campaign

7/10 for Dark Crusade and Soulstorm campaign

10/10 for your epic stories and hard work combined.

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 5/10

So much more could have been done, that was ignored during development.
Betas should of had more input.

Only saving grace is that there is a Modding community with which to complete the incomplete game... :(
