3rd and last expansion of Dawn of War.

Pros:
-Two new factions, both with an unique resource for special abilities, for a whooping 9 factions in total. Newcomers are Sisters of Battle, tanks with poweful healing abilities and moral protection, and Dark Eldars, powerful but fragile units and unmatched in movility and speed of contruction.
-A lot of maps to play.

Cons:
-Sometimes commanders' abilites override normal units' abilities (or viceversa), making very confusing and difficult to use them in combat.

This is very similar to what Dark Crusade was, except instead of single planet with large number of provinces to be conquered, you have multiple planets and only few provinces each. Each race also starts with an unique special power, like the Tau planetary cannon.

Like with Dark Crusade, you need the previous games to play as one of the other races than Dark Eldar or Sisters of Battle. You only need the CD-keys for this, no need for installing the games.

faith - Sisters of Battle gain access to powerful abilities when the combined strength of their faith reaches certain state. The Tau may be seen as a less direct approach on this as their whole society is build around the concept of serving the Greater Good and belief that it will ultimately triumph over all.

Stand-alone expansion that adds Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle as new armies.

"Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm will be a standalone expansion, playable with or without previous iterations; and this time containing 2 new playable factions, one of which is the malicious Dark Eldar, bringing the grand total to 9.

The new chapter will feature an entire intergalactic campaign, spanning not just a planet, but an entire star system - building on the revolutionary meta-game from Dark Crusade. Soulstorm will also introduce air units, additional units for the existing 7 races, and multiplayer achievements to boot."
