This just in. According to Kyle Berndt’s twitter feed, a developer at Vancouver-based Relic Games, the new Dark Angels DLC for Dawn of War 2: Retribution is now outselling Call of Duty: Black Ops on Steam
As stated on Berrndt’s twitter feed:
Our Dark Angels DLC is outselling Black Ops on Steam!
For those of you who are interested, the Dark Angels DLC is a skin pack Dark Angels that turns the generic Space Marine chapter into Dark Angels as pictured below
The pack is priced at $7.50, but is now available as a free download for those who have already purchased the Collector’s Edition.
I’m extremely relieved to hear that something has finally brought down the financial Juggernaut that is Call of Duty: Black Ops. I respect the campaign, given that its written expertly by Dark Knight writer David S. Goyer, but there’s something about the mass hysteria around the game that just over-hypes it to extreme proportions.
Regardless, I’m going with Kyle Berndt’s word on this one, even though he could be laughing at us for believing this lie as a cheap trick to promote the new DLC.
