No waiting. Watch now!
Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium Online!
A quick breakdown of what I’ve made out.
- The Imperium
Possible Player Characters
- Space Marines (In Nomine Imperator!)
- Mechanicus (As the Omnissiah wills)
- Imperial Guard/Kasrkin (Men of the Emperor!)
- Chaos Space Marines (Khârn is a pretty fun guy)
- Chaos Cultists (Sanity if for the WEAK!)
- Orks (DAKKA DAKKA DAKKA!)
Some other things that stick out from the video.
That’s gameplay footage that is! Mmmm gameplay.
There’s something that looks suspiciously like an Eldar Farseer going up against the Chaos Dreadnaut as the music climaxes.
Finally, the means of getting around looks interesting. I saw Space Marine bikes (and of course Chaos bikes), Trukks and Koptas. Flying mounts as well as the purely mundane? Yes please.
The quick run down of things you will not see? Kroot, Tau, Necrons (my favourites), Tyranids and Dark Eldar. Does that mean they aren’t there at all? I couldn’t say. Perhaps they will be NPC factions, perhaps they are for later inclusion or expansions. For all the talk of Warhammer Age of Reckoning needing a third faction, I don’t think a 7+ way war in the 41st Millennium is particularly viable, especially given some of the omnicidal armies.
In conclusion for this first bit, it’s good to be a 40K fan. THQ, having proved themselves more than capable of capturing the feel of the universe in the Dawn Of War series, are bringing us both Dark Millennium and Space Marine. On top of that we have the Ultramarines movie moving forward.
There is only one final thing I need to know from that video…. who do I have to kill to become a Princeps and drive the Titan?
