Yesterday we mentioned that the Dawn of War 2 beta info would be released today, and true to our promise it has been. Unfortunately for us co-op fans there doesn't appear to be any co-op in the beta. That doesn't mean we can't get a good feel on this gritty sci-fi RTS to prepare for the real deal with our buddies.
You knew it was coming, and now we can reveal the dates of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn Of War II multiplayer beta.
The beta will be hosted via Steam and will launch exclusively to Warhammer 40,000: Dawn Of War - Soulstorm owners on January 21. If you’re not a Soulstorm owner, you’ll be able to get in on the action on January 28 when the beta is opened to all worldwide.
All four races (yes, including Tyranids!) will be available to try out in the beta, along with five multiplayer maps and Games For Windows LIVE TrueSkill Matchmaking. Keep your eye on THQ-Games for more information on the Beta.

Now would be an excellent time to sign up for the Co-Optimus Steam Group!
