    Dawn of War II beta started

    If you have Soulstorm (or pre-order DoW II through Steam) you can start the Beta now by adding the serial key to your Steam account, else wait a week.

    You need both Steam and Games For Windows Live.

    Re: Dawn of War II beta started

    Just installed it this evening. It's annoying that you have to setup a Games for Windows profile (I already have a steam account and a Windows live! logon, what more do they want!)
    But the game seems fun, gave it a quick go as the arachnids and had no idea what I was doing
    Anyone else have it report a crash when you leave a multiplayer game?

    Really looking forward to this game. Been a fan of the Relic games since the start.

    Hope there support is a little better than with CoH, which at time was just embarassing

    When is DoW II set to come out? Is it this year or next?

    Re: Dawn of War II beta started

    I can't believe they'd be in a position to release a public open beta and still need more than a year to work on the game, so I'd say it's going to be this year.

    Isn't it coming out next month? Around the 20th, possibly earlier in the US.

    Re: Dawn of War II beta started

    There was an awful lot of speculation flying around about it last time I checked. Dates were varying from January 2009 to March 2010... As you said, with a public beta out I guess that they're nearly finished and so I'll have a new RTS to kick ass on

    Best I've seen so far is £22 here:

    and Game/Amazon are doing a steelbook version for £25.

    Yes, it's just a shame it's £35 on steam! I'd much prefer to buy it through there.

    Yeah I was thinking the same.

    Are there any benefits to having the steelbook version?
