DoW2: Steam & Preorder Bonus

THQ announces European pre-purchases and preloads of the digitally distributed edition of Dawn of War II can be done through this page, which outlines preorder bonuses beyond those we've seen already, including an extra multiplayer map. Word is the game will be activated at the stroke of midnight on February 20. They also announce Relic's RTS sequel will use Steamworks for game authentication, following up on this story and this one indicating they were hoping to avoid objectionable DRM. The announcement quotes lead designer Jonny Ebbert saying: "We love Steamworks because it offers so many advantages for the player," and: "Gamers who purchase the game and register with Steam can install the game on as many PCs as they want, can play online or offline and no CD is required to play. Best of all, if the player ever loses the CD, the game can be downloaded for free from Steam."

I had some fun with the demo but wasn't planning on buying it just yet. Too much else going on. After hearing this I may just get it now after all.

I'm one of those who loves Steam too. Were else can you download your games over and over after wiping a drive or building a new system.

I bought a game from a damned Polish on-line distributor and after a rebuild they not only won't let me download it again but stopped responding to my e-mails. Live and learn people.
