In the game, players choose a Warhammer 40,000 race and fight directly as one of their warriors in massive conflicts for territory. It will be up to each faction’s community to determine their own destiny as they vie for control of an entire planet.
Eternal Crusade's combat is fully action-based, meaning that you hit exactly where you shoot or swing and it's up to your skill whether you pull off a headshot or block that incoming chainsword. In addition, gamepads will be fully supported.
Both ranged and melee weapons have equal emphasis – as in the iconic battles of Warhammer 40,000, combat begins at a distance with guns and heavy vehicle-mounted weaponry before progressing to bloody blade-on-blade action with brutal executions.
On July 25th, 2014 from 1:30-2:30pm EDT the dev team will be streaming a live Team Combat Demonstration on Twitch, along with art updates including a day/night cycle in Eternal Crusade.
As always, during the stream you’ll be able to send in questions via the Twitch chat, and Twitter using the hashtag #40kcrusade!
