THQ/Vigil Games are working with Games Workshop to create a Warhammer 40,000 MMO, called Dark Millennium Online. For those of you who may not have heard or seen anything Warhammer related here’s a quick explanation! Warhammer 40,000 is a tabletop miniatures game that uses dice and tape measures. It’s set in distant feature, where the Imperium of Men are at war with a number of alien races, such as the Orks, Eldar and forces of Chaos. Games Workshop are the company behind Warhammer 40k, aswell as its more fantasy based tabletop game, Warhammer. Check out Games Workshop’s official site for more information.
A full trailer was shown at this years E3, and today Vigil Games have released a new video featuring the games first playable race. It’s not really a surprise to those who play Warhammer that its the Imperium of Man (Imperial Guard and Space Marines). The trailer is embedded below from Vigil Game’s offical YouTube channel:
Although little information has been posted about Dark Millennium Online, it’s developers have already stated that the combat will be different to those used to battling in World of Warcraft. It’s combat will involve some icons similar to those on Warcraft’s UI, but will feature a more ‘real-time’ combat system using your mouse.
I’ll be keeping a very close eye on this title, as I also collect the tabletop miniatures. The full trailer is below, again linked from Vigil Game’s official YouTube channel:
