Remember that bit in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook where that Space Marine went into a Space Marine village and was cornered by a commoner with a yellow exclamation mark above his head? The one who told him to go out to his garden and kill ten snotlings that were terrorising his space-crops? No you don’t, and neither does Mike Maza, creative director on Warhammer 40K MMO Dark Millennium Online.“We just couldn’t wrap our heads around a Space Marine killing ten wolves for their pelts. It’s just not 40K. We don’t want to give those kinds of quests to the players, we think it takes you out of the fiction. The objectives of our quests are far more epic than that.”
THQ and Vigil Games promised to “fully reveal” the Warhammer 40k MMO at E3, and they’re standing by that promise. Our first peek at this revelation comes in the form of a brand new trailer, as well as the game’s title. The trailer for Warhammer 40k: Dark Millennium Online gives us the backstory: demons, aliens and heretics versus man. We get our first look at gameplay as well as the trailer pans through several different battlegrounds.
There’s very little concrete information available on Dark Millennium right now – the glimpse shown at E3 a reminder that the game exists rather than an all-out reveal. But Mueller is aware that gamers are excited. “People want to know a lot about what the combat classes are and the factions and all these kind of things. But we’re saving that for now. Soon, though…”
