Valve have announced that all owners of retail, Steam and rival digital download versions of Iron Lore’s (R.I.P.) Soulstorm expansion pack for the original Dawn of War are entitled to participate in the Dawn of War II Multiplayer Beta test today, one week ahead of the public beta test being opened to the, well, public on the 28th of January.
To participate, all one has too do is either:
- Buy Soulstorm over Steam for the special discounted price of $7.50/£4.25. Presumably, the option to download the beta will arrive alongside your purchase.
- Register a valid CD-key from a retail boxed or other digital download version of Soulstorm. As above, the beta will then be downloadable.
People who have faith in Relic to deliver can pre-purchase the game now over Steam, but we’re not sure if this allows access to the beta. Up front response is good and we hope to cover the game in more detail shortly.
