Angry Joe managed to snag some lengthy footage of the upcoming MMO, Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade. If you’ve not heard of it before, think Planetside or World of Tanks with mechanics similar to Relic’s Space Marine game released a few years ago – set, of course, in the grim darkness of the far future. The game is currently in a pre-Alpha state, but is offering a variety of Founder’s packs for purchase to customers who just can’t wait or want to support the developers before the game is released.
As a long-time fan of Games Workshop’s premier franchise, I have to say my interest is piqued. Let’s hope they can produce something that is both fitting of that particular IP, unique, and worth an investment.
Eternal Crusade is set on a planet,Arkhona, and pits the factions of Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar against one another. It features the ability to choose differing classes, and (as you’ll see in the video) vehicles of differing types are available as well.
A link to the whole preview can be found below. If you’re a fan of 40k and/or Planetside, you may really want to follow this one.
