At the Microsoft booth here at CES 2009 X-Play was lucky enough to get some hands-on time with Relic Entertainment's Dawn of War II, which will hit beta later this month on Valve's Steam service. As a big fan of Relic's games, they were really excited to play this game. They were not disappointed.
At the top level, the game is much closer to Company of Heroes than Relic's earlier Dawn of War titles, but this is a good thing. A very, very good thing. Secondly, the game focuses entirely on territory control and almost entirely removes base management.
