IGN writes: "THQ and Relic are launching the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II multiplayer beta this week, and we've got all the details. First, if you own Soulstorm, the last expansion pack for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, you've already got your invitation into the beta. THQ and Relic will open the multiplayer beta to everyone in one week's time.
We've been playing around with what's available right now, and there's plenty to see and do. All four Dawn of War II factions are playable: Space Marines, Orks, Eldar, and Tyranids. There are five maps to play on, and two different modes. And you can play one-on-one to three-on-three depending on the map, and can set up solo skirmishes with the computer taking the roles of opponents as well as teammates."
