Way too early to show, mistake by the company.

To put this in a little perspective, they've been doing streams of this for the last month or so, and this is the first time I've seen a lot of the textures and colours at all, so it's still at a quite early stage. Vehicles (Rhinos and Predators at least) are in, as are emplaced weapons.

Really hoping the sound, especially the voice, is placeholder assets though!

Good to see what their going for but it has a long way to go.

Very brave of them to show their work this early, I guess crowd funding is having an affect on when developers are willing to show w.i.p.

This wasn't ready to show. Mechanics have untold value, but there is hidden value in showing a game that appears visually complete. They should have given this another five months.

It's hard for me to believe that Games Workshop can allow such a travesty.

No, I am not talking about the state of the game. I am referring to the representation of the Space Marines here. They fight more like the Gears in Gears of War than they do Space Marines in Warhammer 40K canon.

I can't believe they had the balls to show it in this state. Remember everyone, it's only mere $450 bucks for the top founders pack....and it lets you play the whole game, and early! What a deal!

Suckers....

So far besides the vehicle maps this game looks an awful lot like Space Marine MP, I was expecting something more MMOish.

Probably should have kept this under wraps until it actually looked like a 2014 that someone might want to play.

cant believe they are showing this game in this state. it is clear that the game isnt even remotely ready to be shown off. i mean look a the art assets. the game isnt even visually complete, let alone the animations and mechanics.

Hopefully it's at least as good as Space Marine once it's finished.

Is this 2004 or 2014? Someone pinch me please...

It plays like Space Marine, which I didn't care too much for. This bums me out.

I get it, it's pre-alpha, but if the gameplay mechanics stay the same....well, I probably won't play it. Dark Crusade looked like it would have been stellar, instead of this.

at least we get to see a glimpse of the game mechanics and we know that they are making it, wich is quite a start since a lot of fan of warhammer would certanly want to support the game, I'm a fan too, though I cannot support the game due to my wallet status (=, I can certanly say that I'm very saddened by THQ bankrupt and that seeing a warhammer game back on the trail it's a nice thing for a change (=

Why are they showing it off this early? Looks like shit and I'm not just talking about the graphics. Shit voice acting and boring gameplay.

It's still in Pre-Alpha People. This is the first major gamming company to have the balls to show their game off when it's in pre-alpha.

This has got to be an Alpha Build ItsHumanity, it's an MMORPG and to be honest I'm SURE that it's a browser based MMORPG at that... so that'll hopefully explain why this looks like dog food Mausingen.. As a massive fan of the literature and the universe of 40k I really want this to be done well..  Only time will tell I guess.

Is this an alpha build or like a mobile game?

@GarGx1 It's not crowdfunding. The game is already funded, the founders program is to allow stretch goals and make a better game at launch

@drysprocket You can play for free or "buy the game" for 40 bucks, whats the fuzz? 

If someone wants to spend more money whos to stop them? You can buy 10 boss bundle pack and reach $500 bucks? The 450 pack doesnt give you anything more than the 120 pack? Why nag at ppl that wants to support a game?

@oflow In a cupple of months there should be larger alpha/ beta tests with more ppl in it =)

@danyjr *pinch' its pre-alpha mate ^^ Not many companies show their future players these things "to scared of bad publicity". Thanks to the transparent production policy EC/ bEhaviour has, we as players have the possibility to change the game. Drop your suggestions and ideas at our forum: http://forum.eternalcrusade.com/

@itsHumanity  It's Pre-alpha people. The game doesn't come out until late 2015.

@golokopitenko @GarGx1 You've picked me up wrong. I'm not saying that this game is crowd funded, I know it's not.

I'm saying that due to crowdfunded game developers showing material earlier and more often, other non crowd funded developers are becoming more open to the idea of showing games to the public far earlier than they ever have done in the past. This being an example.

@hivespirit Wow, I had no idea anyone related with the project would be monitoring this. I'll take a look at the website and see if I can give any feedback.

@GarGx1 Ah ok I see. Maybe you're right that crowdfunding is making an "arms race" sort of mentality, devs wanting to show game stuff earlier and earlier, but I don't think it's a bad thing
