BeefJack writes, "Recent sources are indicating that retail copies of Dawn of War II will still use Steam, a digital distribution platform, to activate the product. In this fashion Steam would act as a form of DRM for Dawn of War II. This will mark the first time in which such a strategy has been used..."
UPDATE: BeefJack wishes to correct the above article. In reference to Steam, Dawn of War II is one of the first major game releases to use Steam as authentication. We are aware that other third party games have used this method in the past and apologize for any confusion the article may have caused.
In connection with the recent rumors in regards to GameStop no longer carrying the game we feel that this story continues to have relevance.
