Ever since it was announced, fans have been speculating about the upcoming MMO title Eternal Crusade. Filling the void left by the never completed Dark Millennium, the game will be Warhammer 40,000′s first major online multiplayer title and hopes have been high. Between the questionable future of the Dawn of War series, THQ going under, and the steady decline of Warhammer Online, the franchise needs new hit titles.
Details about Eternal Crusade have been few. While the factions have been listed and the free to play format the game will follow has been made known, many details were left for fans to question. This lack of information combined with Behavior Interactive’s history of titles, many of which were film tie-ins or lacked critical acclaim, left many wondering if the developer can deliver. Thankfully we’ve been given the first indication they truly can.
