Warhammer 40,000 Eternal Crusade
A new 3rd person perspective action MMORPG set in Game Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe is under development by Behavior Interactive. The new game is called Warhammer 40,000 Eternal Crusade and will see release some time in 2015.
The game will be coming to PC, PS4 & Xbox One. If you're hungry for more details on the game I suggest you check out the official site. There you can see a teaser of what races will be playable. Gamers will play as an individual warrior in huge battles for territory. Quoting directly from the press release, "It will be up to each faction's community to determine their own destiny as they vie for control of an entire planet." There are 4 main factions available, these being the Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines, Orks and Eldar. The game also features various vehicles that players can pilot, such as Space Marine Rhinos, Predators and Ork Battlewagons. Content will be procedurally generated.
Miguel Caron, Head of Behavior Interactive said "I am thrilled to announce what will finally be the first MMORPG based on the Warhammer 40,000 license. Eternal Crusade's team are all MMO development veterans and with the support of Behaviour's 20+ years of experience this is going to be the online Warhammer 40,000 universe game that fans have been dreaming of for years!"
Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop added "The depth, breadth and sheer level of detail that the Warhammer 40,000 universe has after 26 years of continuous development makes it one of the great fantasy settings of our times. Experiencing the thrill of first hand combat in this world of eternal conflict, with thousands of other players beside you, will be fantastic." Here's hoping Mr. Gillard!
It's unclear at this point whether Eternal Crusade is a resurrection of an earlier project that died with THQ called Dark Millennium. The official website hints at plenty of teasers to come showing a list of locked 'phases'. Watch this space for more information on the game as each phase is unlocked.
