Obliterate Orks and Chaos with Possible Warhammer 40K Dreadnought DLC

The Warhammer universe is known for having a devoted group of fans with its several iconic races and brutal lore, but Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine had a relatively quiet launch back in September. For those that did have the opportunity to play the game, there’s something special on the horizon.

In typical holiday fashion, THQ teased an upcoming addition to Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine with the following Twitter post:

We have a big metal surprise coming to @SpaceMarine in January – Merry Christmas from Relic!

So what could it be? If you’re a Warhammer fan you’ll recognize the monstrous dreadnoughts Space Marines routinely employ to blow Ork and Chaos alike into smithereens, making it pretty clear the DLC will include dreadnoughts:

Just look at the size of that thing! How could you not want to jump into a giant mechanical beast seething with fury and an arsenal that could level a small country? Well, maybe if it comes in the form of an expensive DLC pack, but that is yet to be announced. Stay tuned to find out whether or not this will be downloadable for free, and what else it’ll entail.
