Dawn of War II multiplayer beta dated, here’s how to get in

Getting antsy as we near Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II‘s February 23 launch date? Lucky for you, the sci-fi RTS is getting a beta in a few short weeks, and anyone willing to participate can do so.

The beta is happening through Steam, and if you happen to own Dawn of War: Soulstorm, you’ll get access starting January 21. For everyone else, the public release of the beta is happening on January 28.

Mark your calendar yet? Good. This beta will let you play as any of Dawn of War II‘s four races (Space Marines, Orks, Eldar, Tyranids), includes five multiplayer maps, and features Games for Windows LIVE’s TrueSkill Matchmaking.

I’m not sure how much of a selling point that last one is, but I am putting it out there anyway. So, who here wants in on this action? If you are not sure your PC is up to the task, go review the game’s system specs.
