    It's also available for anyone who has pre-ordered through Steam, if you are willing to pay £34.99 that is. My pre-order is with play and for the extra £10 I save I get some shiny extra unlockable content as well.

    Do you have to own Soulstorm on Steam?

    That's good, I just bought Soul Storm last week in Tesco for £4. Although I think I might have to upgrade my graphics card to play it.

    i think i loved the original DoW almost as much as I loved StarCraft.

    we'll see if both sequels can hold a candle to their predecessors.

    I'm looking forward to this, the original was a lot of fun.

    The previews look pretty good so far and as long as they don't cock it up they can have my money no problem, although I will go the old fashioned route and buy a disc since my broadband speed is pathetic. It would probably take me about a week to download it - assuming one of my random power blips didn't crash the transfer.

    I've been playing this all day and so far I'm not impressed. It's so different from the original dawn of war it might as well be a new series.

    Yes it looks pretty, but the game play in the beta is slow, shallow and not very tactical. Hopefully the full game/campaign will be better.

    Empire Total War if you want a mans stratagy ;) I loved the original DoW games (Warhammer player too... 10,000+points of Imperial Guard, for those not in the know, thats about 50 model tanks and a few aircraft! Maybe 400 grunts?) and I am looking forward to the beta next week, it will be different but might work, more World in Conflict style with more action based RTS less bass building, should prove interesting

    Once you put the CDKEY for SS, the DOW2 Beta client should be in MYGAMES.
