Moving on from yesterday’s story, Relic have announced that the multiplayer beta of Dawn of War 2 will begin on the 21st of January for all owners of Soulstorm, and the rest of the world can get their greedy mits on it on the 28th. The whole thing will be distributed through Steam (hurrah!) and will feature all the playable races and five maps, although, unfortunately, it’ll feature some Games For Windows Live kafuffle that’ll probably sour the experience somewhat. Well, I guess it could turn out all right in the end, right? It’s due a good implementation by now, and Relic’s own matchmaking systems have been less than perfect so far. I’ll throw up a detailed impressions once I’ve given it a play in a few weeks. It’s gonna be orky!
