Warhammer 40k MMO

This game looks like it's going to be pretty sick.



heres some of the stuff about it
  • All of the races that are important to Warhammer lore will be included, either through playable races or NPC's
  • Gameplay will be based around fire-fights, tactics, cover and general brutality (which is befitting a game set in the grim future)
  • Explore places such as: Exotic Alien Temples, Chaos Shrines, Deserted Battlefields, Mysterious Ruins, Ancient Structures, Drifting Hulks in Space, etc..
  • The game is set in the 41st millennium, well after the Horus Heresy and more contemporary to the tabletop game

I think it could play out well though. THQ did really good with the dawn of war series, so it makes sense that they are making this one. The devs have been pretty secretive though, its getting announced officially at E3 this year.

Theres also this squad system that this guy was talking about, where you have npc squad members that follow you.

heres where i found the stuff: 40ksource.net

I hope this does not end up as a 3rd person view like in Dawn of war, I would prefer the MMO style that we currently enjoy in other games such as Warhammer online.

I wonder if they will do fun things like make the IG choice a commisar who summons up guards men to fight for him, as a way to balance out a Space marine vs him?

If they managed to create a WH40K that had the gameplay of WoW, I'm pretty sure my wife would divorce me and I'd gain roughly 200 lbs and move back into my parents' house

What about the SM chapters is it just going to be the Ultra Smurfs. Or can you be a wolf from Feneris.

I would think you would be able to customize your armor and chapter. Maybe you will be able to set chapter affiliation during character creation.... maybe they will even let you use GKs.lol OPed goodness. Will there be classes like chaplain, librarian, tac marine, apoth or something else?

Whenever someone mentions mmo I think mmorpg, which immediatatly springs to mind Automated Combat. Sure, people brag about how great it is with all it's micro-management, but at the end of the day, it's crap. I'd like to see Elements of shooters included, mabye some close-combat action from games like Ninja Gaiden or something like that, or at least something like Oblivion. Whether my prayers will be answered or not, time will tell.

Next thing, subscriptions. I personally think it's daylight robbery, we have to buy the game and THEN pay to actually play it, and then they expect you to buy expansions as well. Hopefully THQ are gonna be somewhat smart and have a one-time purchase thing, something like the Battlefield series or something. Time will tell
