It's not going to work.

Space Marine failed, WAR failed.

Stick with the big battles; you've got Total War: Warhammer Fantasy and potentially Dawn of War 3 soon. Stick with them. They'd get more out of rebooting the Homeworld franchise but for Battlefleet Gothic.

RPG's just don't capture the scale of Warhammer.

Behaviour Interactive and Games Workshop® proudly announce a new online game in the Warhammer® 40,000® universe: Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade. Behaviour Interactive has obtained the rights to create a wholly new MMORPG persistent war experience for PC, PS4 and Xbox One set in Games Workshop's universe of the 41st Millennium. In the game, players choose a Warhammer 40,000 race and fight directly as one of their warriors in massive conflicts for territory. It will be up to each faction's community to determine their own destiny as they vie for control of an entire planet.


"I am thrilled to announce what will finally be the first MMORPG based on the Warhammer 40,000 license," said Miguel Caron, Head of Studio, Online at Behaviour Interactive. "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!"
"Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade is the second milestone in Behaviours new online strategic positioning after last year's Star Citizen Announcement." said Rémi Racine, President and Executive Producer of Behaviour. "We are very happy with the progress of the online studio and you should expect more similar announcements to come."

"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." said Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop. "Experiencing the thrill of first hand combat in this world of eternal conflict, with thousands of other players beside you, will be fantastic."


Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade is currently in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One and will release in late 2015.


Main features of the game include:
Experience the gameworld with 3rd-person, behind the shoulder action featuring precision gunplay and brutal melee combat with excruciating finishers;

Participate in a persistent online war to conquer the planet, its fate completely in the hands of the players;

Become a warrior from one of four initial factions, each unique and opposed to one another: Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines, Orks and Eldar.

Participate in truly massive conflicts that simultaneously bring thousands of players to bear over territories and other strategic resources.

Get behind the controls of Space Marine Rhinos, Predators, Ork Battlewagons and other iconic vehicles of the 41st millennium;

Hack through genuinely challenging procedural content alongside your battle-brothers and never have the same experience twice;

Earn the right to customize your builds in a deep progression system drawing on the rich Warhammer 40,000 universe.

Found a Battle Squad with friends and prepare for conflict from your customized shared space in orbit - then drop down to the planet together and seek out glory!

well i agree that WAR was a fail, but it was also pretty much a a warhammer skin for WoW :/

i wouldn't say Space Marine failed, i loved it.. atleast the single player campaign. And it sold alot, and was one of the biggest THQ selling games. As awesome as DoW and Total War is, they are another genre. It potrays the scale of warhammer well, but it just can't make me feel like a Space Marine. Which is what an rpg can, sadly it's an mmorpg. Would have been better if it was just an rpg imo :/

Space marine had a perfect campaign It's only failure was multiplayer. They should have focused on exterminatus imagine being a dreadnought fighting hordes of orks.

Or imagine a tyranid or necron DLC pack.

Looks badass. I'm down.

I still play Space Marine as often as I can, Exterminatus is great even if it is only two normal levels and one 'Chaos Unleashed' level.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I may try it. But why don't just have a single player rpg instead of a mmo.

I'm going to keep an eye on this MMO, it might be worth it. If its a generic MMO with a lightly 40k themed style, I might pass.

Space Marine was a good single player game, the multiplayer was a bit meh though.
