Warhammer 40K MMORPG Title, Trailer

Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium is the title of the Warhammer 40K MMORPG first revealed a couple of years ago, notes Computer and Video Games, as THQ has made good on a recent promise to reveal more about the game at E3. The game is under development at THQ's Vigil Games (Darksiders), and while details are still scant, there's a gameplay trailer and some screenshots on Kotaku showing some spiffy visuals befitting a studio created by comic book artists.

Please don't suck.

And no WoW/WAR in space.

If they can do it properly, this will probably eat my life for a few months. But I'm not holding my breath

Be warned that Gametrailers mingled in footage from the Space Marine game trailer as well, which will make it look confusing if you haven't seen both games' trailers so you can differentiate.

...as a huge 40k fan I'm not holding out much hope for this, as I just don't see the 40k universe translating to an MMO. I could be wrong, but I'd much rather them take the IP in other directions, an RPG based off of the Inquisitor table-top game would be nice, as would a Battlefleet Gothic space combat game.

While I really want to see this be a good game, as I am a fan of the WH40K setting, I have my doubts it would successfully translate into a MMORPG.

I can see the Character Selection Screen now…

CHOOSE YOUR CLASS

# Space Marine (Ultramarine)

# Space Marine (Space Wolf)

# Space Marine (Blood Angel)

# Space Marine (Dark Angel)

# Space Marine (Other)

# Psyker (*)

# Xenos (You will be purged)


* - Note: Psykers can never advance past Level 1, because as soon as you use your powers, you will either be consumed by a demon from the warp, captured and sacrificed to feed the Emperor on the Golden Throne, or spontaneously explode.

BINGO

Bingo? Couldn't be further from the truth. With so many races in 40K, only stupidity can limit you to just space marines. Even if you're limited to just the Imperium there's enough variety to make a MMO.

Wasnt getting WoW vibes here, but worse, WAR. That deserty type environment with the orange haze looked ripped straight out of WAR - which is a tad concerning.

Likewise those Titan's walking, that looks like the kind of way early days footage showing features that never usually end up in the released game.

Im praying this game ends up awesome, but it seems quality MMO's these days are rarer than hen's teeth.

I'd have to agree with the guy who didn't like the cartoony, wow-ish graphics. Love the ip but yawned my way through the trailer. I'm getting pretty sick of the 'cartoon dude in football gear' art style.

Yeah, I know that Blizzard basically ripped it off from GW but it still doesn't make it any better.

Looks like Dawn of War, but better, and that turned out to be a damn fine 40k game.

That is my impression too. And that's a good thing in my book.

QFMFT. Don't ruin this you fucking haters!

(Yes, I see the extreme irony in me asking others not to hate on a game)

This trailer is an insult to Warhammer 40k. The Warhammer 40k universe is a dark, gritty, and grimy landscape, but in this trailer it looks like a fucking cartoon. All this looks like so far is space marine expansion pack to Warhammer Online.

I just went from excited about the prospect of a Warhammer 40k MMO to dreading it.

I'm sorry that this doesn't look like the amazing art of the 40K universe, but it doesn't look like a cartoon at all. Looks like Dawn of War, but better, and that turned out to be a damn fine 40k game.

Even a 40K MMO that looked like WOW could potentially be fucking sweet. I don't know what to expect from this game, but I won't let graphics alone deter me. I just hope they don't make the same mistakes as Warhammer Online and try to do too much on release.

i suppose its too much to ask for an actual TBS 40k game.. its been over 10 years since chaos gate

btw that trailer looks more disney than warhammer... id also sorta expect to see a shitload of guys in formation facing off instead of a bunch of random solos
 
Go forth, and kill!

Would elite super soldiers need to go out and grind thousands of bullshit creatures to get their next weapon/implant upgrade? What are the developers going to do when the servers are 95% space marine, 4% Ork, 1% regular human infantry?

Ummm... HELLO?

Eldar?

Tau??

Necron???
