yeah, saw the concept art for this last month. Sounds cool, but the sceptic in me thinks they may just try to make a WoW with space marines. If it isn't grimdark, I ain't touching it.

Ya.....this is another one of those games that has TONS of potential.....but we will have to wait and see what comes.

I can kinda see them running with a focus on Space Marines (and Chaos Space Marines perhaps). This would allow people to organize into chapters and provide a number of possible roles for people to play/specialize in.....Start out as a Scout....work towards Tactical member (even though this is against fluff)....the specialize as a Devastator, Assault Marine. or possibly a tech Marine.

The game could even run in a "new" direction by making players the Sergent of a Squad of NPC/Computer controlled Marines......

Overall.....There is a ton of potential, but execution will make all the difference.

Uhhh 6 years ago there was a ton of hype for a 40k MMO and then 10 months before the release date the lead designer walked away from the project and then games workshop promptly pulled out

I'm already infamous for rants? lol

I don't really have anything to say about this, I'll just refer to this:

since it's pretty much spot on with what I would say.

I hope they make it wow with space marines. Every MMO should be WoW, at it's peak WoW surpassed even the most popular MMO pre-WoW (Everquest) by over 12 times the number of players (12million to 870,000)

I think it would be better if it went with a more fallout-3 styled approach than a WOW approach, though granted WOW is king of the MMO heap for a reason.

It's funny, because that's what most MMOs try to be, usually failing. WO, AoC... the list goes on. lol

Not that it's necessarily a cardinal sin, WoW is probably the best MMOs are going to ever get.

I hope not.. Despite how much I enjoy WoW (On and Off), I sincerely hope gaming will evolve beyond it.

Hmm. I guess I should rephrase my statement.

WoW is the best that MMOs in their current form are going to get.

It's going to take a helluva lot of innovation to turn that turd into a shiny piece of gaming gold.

Wrong game Freezingoon. The gameplay is from the 3rd person shooter, this is an MMO.
