DoW2 Patch & Maps Planned

The Dawn Of War 2 Community Site has an internal Q&A about the release of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, explaining, among other things, how a game can enter beta testing after it goes gold, going on to offer further details on the beta. A semi-related point is that they have already cooked up a day zero patch with "improvements to the game based on early feedback to ensure fans get the best possible experience." Looking at the long term, they have: "planned scheduled patches and data updates through 2009 and beyond." They also say they plan to release a pair of additional multiplayer maps for the RTS sequel within a week of its launch. Thanks Voodoo Extreme.

Makes sense to me. The game is good to go, but they're putting out a public beta now to get customer feedback and fix any issues they didn't catch internally by the time the game is on store shelves. This is a good move as most companies don't even do demos let alone fully-featured multiplayer betas.
