W40K Games that aren't Dawn of War...

Was browsing last night and came across these bits and pieces. Don't know if they've been posted, but...

First, we have Warhammer 40K: Space Marine.

A third person combat game that hasn't actually been announced by THQ as yet, but as you'll see in the vid, its already taking shape. It has both melee and ranged combat, and i honestly don't know what to think about it. After reading this article, and this one, and watching this video:



I dunno. It looks gorgeous, first of all. Second, though, it looks like it could be a very, very repetitive game. Being gory, even satisfyingly so, only has so much appeal before it gets old. IF we get large scale battles, with lots of marines and enemies and you in the middle, then i'd definitely give this a look. Like Dynasty Warriors, but cooler.

Also, yes, it looks like he's an Ultramarine. I know some people hate those, but it doesn't bother me. Maybe they'll have unlockable Chapter armour patterns or something.

Lets hope THQ announces it soon.


Second up, is Warhammer 40k: Online

Yes, they are making one, apparently, for release in 2010.

Official Site (a bit bare)

Articles:

http://www.gamesradar.com/f/warhamm...502174245201051

http://www.gamespot.com/news/6166560.html

Given the type of games that MMORPG's tend to be, the ability to be a space marine, a tau fire warrior/combat suit, an Imperial Guardsman, a Chaos Marine etc, should be a given. And choosing what chapter i'd get to join? Or maybe even create my own? Speculation of course, but i don't see the harm in it. I'd definitely want to look this up...

I have a feeling that maybe you won't be able to choose such distinct characters.

Could be you choose a faction - emperium, Ork, Eldar, Chaos, and so on. And you start as a nothing and as you level up maybe you work your way into cool rolls.

Like if you start an Emperium character you start as an imperial guard, and as you level up maybe you can go on to be a space marine and so on.

Who knows though.

THQ are on shaky finanical ground, remember. Projects could get cut. I think the eventual success or otherwise of Age of Reckoning will have a lot to do with that.

The Space Marine game looks somewhat generic; I rememebr seeing an early vid of it, it all being about customised close combat kills.

Always a good idea to bear in mind all relevant information.

I dislike the fact that they seem to put an emphasis on using your sword as opposed to a gun in that Space Marine.

Also, it DOES look a lot like Gears of War...

It is EXCEPTIONALLY hard for an MMO to raise my enthusiasm.

That'd be great if my fellow Tau Commanders weren't called "Eldarsuxmyballs2210".

IGN's first look at Warhammer 40K: Space Marine:

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/987/987127p1.html

Plus the video:

http://xbox360.ign.com/dor/objects/...ttle_52709.html

Looks like fun, imo, as long as they find a way to add some variety (maybe add different classes, and such, like assault marines and heavy gunners).

I expect both of those games to be good games but I'd say that they'll be horrible 40k games.

I'd say the other way around. The gameplay looks like the most generic God of War-esque shit ever.
