THQ had two PC RTS games to show off at E3. The first one is an expansion pack to their game based on the tabletop RPG game, while the second is a brand new title.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Dark Crusade is the second expansion pack to the Dawn of War game and this one not only provides a brand new single player campaign, but it also adds another two races (The Necron and The Tau) to the game's list of choices.

THQ only had a video to show off for their other RTS, but it showed a lot and was impressive. Supreme Commander is a massive RTS game that will lets you switch between numerous levels of detail from a global view all the way down to a detailed battlefield camera angle. Players will have a wide assortment of technology and armaments at their disposal. Everything from mechs to tanks and ships are available for your command. Trees and landmasses will bend to your might as you tear through the massive maps in order to take down your opponents.

Battle on multiple fronts and levels with the ability to not only fight on the land and sea, but also in the air with a variety of planes.

Supreme Commander will be released in 2007 while the War Hammer expansion pack is scheduled to come out this Fall.
