About this DLC
The year is 941.M41, and a massive Space Hulk appears in the Armageddon star system. It is believed uninhabited, and the citizens of Armageddon wonder what riches they will discover when salvage companies survey it. Little do they know that a huge Ork invasion force is hidden within, ready to bring death and destruction upon the unsuspecting Imperial world... The fate of Armageddon hangs in the balance, and your actions will determine the outcome.
As Ghazghkull Thraka's most trusted Nob, take command of the Ork hordes and unleash the greatest WAAAGH! in history upon the imperial world of Armageddon. Prove once again that “humies is all weak scum that deserve ta get stomped”. Make sure that even the Space Marines will not save the day, against the great green tide.
