The Tyranid Mod is an ongoing additional race modification for the original Dawn of War series, based on the Tyranid army from the Warhammer 40k tabletop game.

Tyranids are an intergalactic predator race which moves in hivefleets from world to world, devouring all living things and natural resources they can; leaving behind nothing but a barren rock, devoid even of atmosphere. Seemingly without individuals, Tyranids have a single hivemind that spans billions of their genetically-engineered combat organisms. Faceless and implacable, the Tyranid race is unrelenting and unstoppable. And their origins remain a complete mystery.

Although now already featured in Dawn of War 2, the Tyranid Mod Team is still hard at work trying to bring the Tyranids to Soulstorm (and if we can, Dark Crusade as well).

0.5b3: Nearly Here

News 42 comments

Hey folks,

Sorry about the wait, I know we run on extreme Valvetime but we do eventually get things done.

We now have a near-final version of 0.5b3 and we're just about to go into final AI updates and playtesting before release.

I can't say how long that will take, but given how long it is between releases and how little you all hear from us it seemed like something our long-time fans would want to know. :)

And for all the Dawn of War modders still out there, we're following through on our art resource plan. The new version is a dual-mod: art resources in one mod and our code in another. This should mean that for those modders who want to combine our full mod with theirs, they can do that, but you'll also have the option of just combining our models and sound art if you want to write an entirely new mod from the ground up without fear of our mod's code disrupting yours. There are going to be absolutely no excuses for anyone stealing our work now.

Again, I know this has been a long wait for you all but we're almost there.

Look, I get that RL takes precedent but it's been nearly 7 years since the release of b2. I know progress has been made, enough to warrant a nearly ready b3 but the announcement for that was two years ago. I'm still eager to play b3, but it's frustrating to see things just go dark the way they have. This isn't your job, you owe us nothing, I'm under no illusions that you do, but a statement about how the mod is on hiatus would be appreciated.

Welp, and here I was hoping that me and my buddy would enjoy using this with the Unification mod... But it seems that devs are gone... somewhere... and no 0.5b3 on the horizon... What a shame.

Its been so many years since the day this mod had seen the first light of the sun
So many things has changed
We have stable Renegade Mod
Barely working but still playable and kinda fun Adeptus Mechankus
3-rd version of Grey Knights
3-rd version of Daemons is coming
Bloodline mod had 2 civil wars in their team
I dont even mention UA mod
We even can play with Witch Hunters mod
We even can see playable Tyranids, that uses DoW2 models
But this mod?
Sorry, its more than dead right now
Its so dead that even Necron Lord sees them as his elders

I have good reason to think otherwise. I do not know the reasons why the creators did not post 0.5b3, it is ready and it is excellent, much better than Tyranid Swarm.

Well, the creators and owners of the mod are not available right now.

Sorry guys, but if you are desperate to play and test Tyranids NOW,... is as playtesters in our team. We were external assistants to the Tyranids team, so we do have access to the latest build.

Otherwise, wait for brother Miros and/or Zaha to return. :)
