Dawn of War II Patch Plans

The Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II Website has an initial update on plans for a "big" upcoming patch for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II to update the sci-fi RTS sequel to version 1.3 with new maps, new gameplay modes, and more. They promise more details on the new version over the next week, and say they plan on releasing the patch in early May. Here's the list they provide of a few features planned for the new version:
• We are adding a Two-on-Two game mode, with two new four player maps.
• Two-on-Two is a ranked game mode with leaderboard support.
• An improved, more challenging Skirmish AI.
• Push to talk voice chat and Company of Heroes style sub-selection options.
• New squad decorators and significant UI improvements.
• A performance test to help measure Dawn of War II performance.

No balance changes? As much as I appreciate adding the 2v2 mode, it does not make the game any more playable in ranked games in its current state of balance.

Nah they did submit it but then they recalled it from certification as they decided to add few more fixes and remove a bug in code that was still present.

According to some post on the Relic News forums from a programmer, the patch is already in late certification.

Yeah, they said that with the pop-cap bug fix, but in reality they never submitted it and it took 2 months to get into the game. Plus they have a tendency to not test their stuff and introduce horrible bugs into their game.

Sounds good. I just recently picked it up off Steam while it was on sale. I have to say I'm really enjoying the SP campaign so far.

should be here in... November or so?
The patch will require a few months of GFWL certification so yes November is about right.
