NEW Warhammer 40K MMO

Postby Kethron » Wed Jun 12, 2013 11:05 am

When THQ dismantled earlier this year, it effectively ended Vigil Games' Warhammer 40K MMO that had been announced a few years ago. However, Games Workshop seems determined to make a 40K MMO happen, so now there's Warhammer 40: Eternal Crusade, an MMO slated for release at the end of 2015. Judging from the website, it appears that there will at least the Space Marines, Chaos Marines, Orks, and Eldar as playable factions.

Could be good! We shall see. The 40K universe is very well suited for the MMO genre.

Dude! Read the first post in this thread! :lol:

The original 40K MMO from Vigil Games was cancelled, but the license was picked up by another developer who started up a new version. This one looks like it will actually see the light of day. 8-)

The only thing so far that I don't like is the extreme motorization of the game - it seems like darn near everything is a micro-transaction. I'll reserve judgment until I see or hear how that affects or doesn't affect actual gameplay, as I've had fun with games that run similar business models.

Seems this went live Sept 2016?

I never saw any press or buzz on it.

Did it? I haven't seen anything on it either. I've been getting my 40k fix playing Deathwing.
