DoW2: Retribution Favours Steam

Relic Entertainment Producer Jeff Lydell told PC Gamer that when the new Dawn of War 2 expansion pack arrives, called Retribution, it will be without support for Games for Windows Live.

Both Dawn of War 2 and its first expansion, Chaos Rising, had supported Games for Windows Live and Steam. But as Lydell said, “We’ve always thought this was cumbersome, and only implemented it because back in Dawn of War II’s development, we needed digital distribution and matchmaking features from both platforms”.

He added that supporting both services created more QA work, and that Relic and Valve were working on some exciting new features to be announced later.
