Default WH40K: Dark Nexus Arena

Ouh look, another game destined to flop.



“Dark Nexus Arena is in development here at Whitebox Interactive by a dedicated group of Warhammer 40,000 fans. Our vision is to adapt a never-before-seen piece of the Warhammer 40,000 universe to a videogame set against the brutal and bloody Dark Eldar Arenas. To that end we are calling on you, the community, to help us. Your feedback will drive our work towards game balance, bug fixes and development of the best Warhammer 40,000 multiplayer battle arena experience.

We want to hear from you, register on our Official Forum!”

-The Dark Nexus Team
EDIT: Holy fucking hell. Never mind the early access version being up for pre-order already, but the pricing tiers are $25, $50, $125 and $250!!

Who knows, it might be awesome.

It looks basically like the pvp arena from WoW. If the cost was low, and characters could be customized through play it could be a lot of fun.

Though, unless the gameplay was pretty deep I think the appeal would wear thin pretty quickly. I think more than half of the draw in the Warhammer universe, IS the Warhammer universe. Even if the gameplay is awesome I would be concerned that that game wouldn't be immersive enough.

Bad design move, me thinks. The MOBA market is already crowded with titles produced by much larger companies with better staff behind them and better name recognition. What does this have? 40k? It was hardly enough to keep SM going, and that was a good title, so unless this comes out of the gates swinging, I don't see Dark Nexus Arena (title's too long) lasing very long at all.

If so, than this is game is already dead. Throwing out pricing like that for a MOBA title is a sure fire way to strangle your game before it can even get released.
