It has been going on over a year since our dreams of exploring the grim darkness of the far future online died. But now that dream is revived as developers Behaviour Interactive are working on a new MMORPG they are calling Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade!
Eternal Crusade is to be an entirely different game to the previously expected MMORPG Dark Millennium. In it players will be able to join one of four Warhammer 40k races; namely the Eldar, Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines and Orks. These will be engaged in massive battles over entire planets, with players able to form units, or “Battle Squads” , as well as having access to iconic 40k vehicles. The game will play in over-the-shoulder third-person perspective and there should be a strong focus upon melee and gun based combat.
From this we can gather that Eternal Crusade will most likely focus more upon the conflict and warfare of Warhammer, rather than its extended world. The idea of taking part in the large scale battles we often play out on our tabletops from the perspective of its soldiers and heroes is intriguing and should make for a cool experience.
The game itself will be released for XBox One, PS4 and PC and is looking at a release date in 2015. I for one am looking forward to it and I hope it should be as awesome as it sounds.
What sort of game do you hope this turns out to be?
