Personal review
Similar to the base game, this expansions adds some new features and changes.

Pros:
-Two different campaigns: one for "order" armies and another for "chaos" hordes.
-A new faction who is extremly reliant in defense and slow but secure advancing.

Cons:
-Still carries issues with resolution and display.
-Removes some interesting upgrades of a few units for no logical reason.

Official description
Winter Assault is the expansion pack to the 2004's RTS Game of the Year, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

Lost amongst the ruins of a leveled city lies an Emperor Class Titan, a war vessel of untold power forged in the planet-wide furnaces of Mars, and revered by billions as the epitome of Imperial dominance.

The one who controls it will command the power to destroy, or defend, a world. The Imperials will summon it to overcome great evil, Chaos will corrupt it for their own designs, Orks will destroy it in their bloodlust and Eldar will disregard it in their arrogance.

Features:

* Take command of a completely new race, the Imperial Guard, in 12 new single player missions.
* Battle against the Space Marine, Eldar, Ork and Chaos races, each with brand new units.
* Direct your troops in all out war across harsh new winter battlegrounds with enhanced urban terrain and additional interactive objects and structures.
* Revel in new and improved gameplay features including a new tech tree, hundreds of new animations and endless new strategies.
* Dominate 20 new multiplayer maps with advanced online features including observer mode, arranged team play and improved auto match.
