The Ultimate Apocalypse mod team proudly presents to the Dawn of War: Soulstorm players and fans, an eagerly awaited and packed with epic content game experience, the Ultimate Apocalypse mod! Imagine a mod featuring massive Warhammer 40,000 battles where all 9 races in Soulstorm (and more!) have a chance at epic victory. A mod where there's no shortage of all new units, buildings, abilities, and even titans! A mod where there's nearly no limits holding you back. It's all about all out, massive war. Wanna nuke your enemies? You can. Gloriously epic titan duels are your thing? Ultimate Apocalypse has you covered. Not only that, but Ultimate Apocalypse is continuously tested to ensure the epic battle experience it delivers remains unique while being completely awesome. Thanks to you (yes, you!) and everyone playing, Ultimate Apocalypse has been steady within the top 20 ranked mods for years.
Ultimate Apocalypse is a mod that truly improves the experience of Dawn of War: Soulstorm. The sheer increase in scale alone could be a reason to give it a 10/10 but a combination of factors fully ensure it deserves the top rating. The sheer up scaling of general gameplay changes the game to much more closely resemble the true battlefield nature of warhammer 40k. It is certainly bigger, the scale speaks for itself when it comes to titans, super weapons and ability to control far more units. Alongside much bigger explosions and effects of course.
Appearances too are to a very good standard, in the most cases all the model graphics, including the vast amount of new models are well designed and closely resemble units you would see in the tabletop game. The mechanics of the game too are very good, there's great execution of elements when you're actually playing the game, battles do run smoothly (but a higher-spec system is recommended for larger maps), and the voicing in itself is very good for all the different units the team have put into the game.
Talking of difference, the diversity is so much greater than the base game. As mentioned more units are put into the game, alot for sure, of varying scales from additional infantry units to titans, additional variation can take place too in the different wargear you equip these troops with and in faction specific buildings and abilities. Plus with the compatibility with two new factions and a plethora of game-selection options being opened up to you, the breadth of the game can be customized to personal preference to a great extent.
This mod is awesome for sure, it is an exceptional mod that I fully recommend and definitely a mod to play still in 2015. As I may have mentioned, the sheer scale transforms the base soulstorm game into something else and very much for the better, I could never go back to the regular base game after playing this mod. 10/10
