Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War joins Humble THQ Bundle

The Humble THQ Bundle has just two days left before coming to a close, and it's apparently looking to go out with a bang.

Despite the relatively simple idea, it would appear that Big Picture Mode has taken off, with Valve boss Gabe Newell telling Kotaku that the response from users has been "stronger than expected."
