The Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II Interview on Strategy Informer is the promised full conversation with Jonny Ebbert, lead designer on Relic's upcoming RTS sequel. When asked about plans for downloadable content, he describes plans to reward players with free DLC instead of burdening them with digital rights management: "We want to give out steady doses of free downloadable content because we believe in rewarding people who buy the game and the reason we donít like DRM solutions is because they punish the innocent and they have to jump through all these hoops. We donít want to do that so weíre going with the approach that Valve pioneered to just reward the people who actually bought the game with cool stuff. Free downloadable, regularly accessible stuff that enhances the game and then thatís an incentive for the people who didnít buy the game to buy it. So weíve got a really bold, robust strategy for that and weíre going to be revealing more details in about a month, but I think players are going to like it. And everybody wins you know? The people who paid for the game donít have to go through any fuss and theyíre constantly getting new stuff, which keeps the game fresh." On a related note, there's also a new "Tyranids" trailer from the game on AtomicGamer, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, and MyGameTrailers.
