Can't wait to see how this 40K MMO will handle the Emperor.
Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade was announced at E3 2013. Since that time, there hasn't been a lot of official news. However, recently fans have done some digging to uncover a few more details about the MMO.
In the past week, fans have learned that there will be more than just one chapter for Space Marines and maybe each of the other factions as well. Fans also learned that all units in Eternal Crusade will be offensive, and that developer Behaviour Interactive intends to change up the trinity (Tank/Healer/DPS) by spreading support skills throughout all classes. We also learned that ammo will not be infinite. This will force the 2-10 player groups, or strike forces, to use melee weapons (and vehicles) in addition to bullets.
Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade is being developed by Naughty Bear developer Behaviour Interactive for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It is currently set to release sometime in 2015 so news is certainly sparse at the moment. In addition to customization promises, Behaviour has teased "genuinely challenging procedural content" as a means to address the slog that comes with constant re-running of end game or even mid-game dungeons in MMOs.
Warhammer 40K is a dark and grim version of the future in which most "good" has been extinguishing from the universe. The only factions left, evil gods and evil nations, constantly battle each other as the universe slowly crumbles.
Stay tuned for more Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade news later this week as Behaviour will be holding an "Ask me Anything" over on Reddit.
