Dawn of War: Dark Crusade is the second expansion pack to the original Dawn of War game. It does not require the original game to function, however if the game isn't installed the player will not be able to use some of the races available in multiplayer mode. Dark Crusade has a unique function in that it does not require the disc to play it (after it is installed, of course). It is assumed that this was unintentional. The expansion pack introduces 2 new races (Necrons and Tau Empire) and an expanded campaign mode, which introduces a planetary conquest style gameplay.

Although the game works without the disc inserted, this can cause serious harm to ending gameplay. For example, there have been a number of cases where the computer has completely frozen whilst attempting to play the ending cutscene of Campaign Mode.
