A change is being made on Games for Windows ® LIVE today to improve the Multiplayer experience for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II players. Ranked and Custom game modes requiring Games for Windows ® LIVE will now only match players using the latest version of the game. Players should see a higher percentage of compatible games in the custom games list and reduced search times during matchmaking. Players with an out of date version of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II will need to connect to Steam in ‘online mode’ to download the latest patch.
Players choosing to remain in ‘off-line’ mode will continue to have access to off-line Campaign and LAN game modes without connecting to Games for Window ® LIVE or Steam.
