Title says it all.

Downloading right now, crossing my fingers that my 3-year-old iMac will handle it, on some level.

ETA: Steam is the source of the download.

Looking forward to this one for sure, but mostly in it for SP and Co-op, so going to hold off until the full release.

As it turns out, DoW 2 does run on my machine.  :happy: Part for part, I nail the minimum system requirements Relic posted, and it's nice to see that they actually meant it.  I have all my settings on low, of course, but playing some 1v1 skirmishes with the computer it ran just fine.  The playability of larger games remains to be seen.

Gameplay-wise, I'm stoked.  On first impression this looks like the RTS that I've always wanted to play.

Much like Nobody said, I'm into this for the SP & Co-op things. I've never been a big MP fan, but always love a strong SP element. This looks like it will deliver!
