So here it is guys the trailer for Dark Millennium Online, the Warhammer 40K MMO by Vigil Games.
Certainly impressive looking (from what we can see in the trailer), and looks like there is loads of scope for all the factions to make an appearance at some point.
The debate thats raging in here is just what will this do to the table top game. Dawn of War had little effect on the number of tabletop players, in other words it didn’t hurt the hobby and may have given it a little bit of growth. However as many of your gaming clubs will know, World of Warcraft caused quite the exodus, where wargamers (more accurately gamers who love the fantasy genre) lost their time for the hobby because they whiles the hours away chasing rabbits and giant spiders.
So now were looking at the possibility for 40K players to get their fix of the 40K universe in what could be an even deeper experience (if it has any of the stickiness of World of Warcraft), how do you think this will effect the tabletop aspect of the hobby?
So have at it guys, take a look at the trailer and let us know what you think of the game (so far) and how it might effect the tabletop game going forward.
