Dawn of War 3 Update Adds Modding Tools, Autosave

A new update for Dawn of War 3 has been released. It adds modding tools to the game, as well as Steam Workshop support for mods. Apart from that, the patch adds the much requested autosave feature to the campaign, and continues the rebalancing effort (which is something that should’ve been handled before release, if we’re being honest).
