New Dawn of War 2 Patch is Live

There's a new patch available for Dawn of War 2 on the PC, bringing the game's version up to 1.21.  There aren't any co-op specific fixes in the patch, other than a few achievement glitches, but that doesn't mean it's not good to be up to date.

What the patch does offer co-op players is a brand new multiplayer map called Tiber Outpost, and if you are so inclined, players can "comp stomp" this new 6 player map.
