Clan Recruitment:::::: This clan i will create will specialize in playing Space Marine. All you will have to do is contact me on gamespot or on xbox live (my gamertag is CJE545). If I except you in, you will be part of the ExOTiC clan. You will have to change your gamertag to ExOTiC ____. I hope this clan will become great and be almost as famous as the OpTiC clan. Thank you
last time I played W40k: Dawn of war 2 and that was a Real time strategy. If this game is in 3rd person mode, I am on it. :D
and hopefully they dont forgo the classic bolt pistol/chainsword combo. the trailer just showed the chainsword by itself and a 2h bolter. i really hope they dont leave duel wielding out
@AlexMK4 And an avatar would just be strolling around, waiting for a space marine to come and kill it?
I have some doubts but I hope this game shows me up. It looks sick and I always wanted to be a space marine. This may be a day one purchase for me just out of principle!
haters gonna hate, but why's it alway focused either round Spacemarines or ultra marines. even the table top games turning into "spacemarine 40k".
games looking good. theres so many good games coming out this year though some are going to have to fall through the cracks. unfortunatly due to money this may be one of them. if the online looks really good though i may have to find a way.
Sooooo pumped, although I hope it doesnt get dominated by melee. Im more of a shooter guy. But for online, instead of killing eachother, it should be like a small squad of marines (people) have to complete an objective against orks (bots) such as escort, or who ever can kill the most orks before time runs out. Something good like that....
man i hope they dont make melee combat dynasty warriors-ish. dawn of war melee has always seemed to be focused on intense single combat on a large scale. and heres to hoping for the appearance of power axes and swords :]
I wonder if you can have play as a psyker character, like a librarian. Either way I hope this game is done well. I love the Warhammer 40k universe and an Action RPG sounds amazing for it.
An RPG!!!! really!!!!???? The RTS was already awesome. now this one is Overwhelming!!!! Will this be a first person? I hope not since I prefer third person.
Im being perfectly honest here... its really good and could even be great if: 1.They included army painter like in Dawn of war. (couldnt get enough it) 2. Had competitive multiplayer with medals, ranks, honours etc being unlocked as you play letting you have ever shiner new abilities, armour, guns etc. 3. I like owning orks but surely it would be more interesting by including a few more races. You would actually have to think tactics if you knew there were eldar rangers, warp spiders etc about. And an avatar would really shake things up a bit eh?
From what I've seen in the trailers we'll be getting a melee and ranged choice which we are equipped with. This could possibly end up turning out like Fable's gameplay ad controls maybe?
Space Marines are the most marketable aspect of the IP. Each individual space marine is very durable, making them the best character for a single player experience. You couldn't have a marine and any other base unit go up against each other on equal footing and stay true to the IP. That said, Space Marines are overplayed. I love em, but so does every other Publisher and IP. If they want to go back to RTS I would recommend the Armageddon battle as a setting. It's standard Guard vs. Orks in a WW1 style. Kinda unique when it comes to space battles. No super-powers or magic. Just straight up bullets and flammable chemicals around lots of squishy flammable things. It would be terrible for a FPS style game because who wants to play cannon fodder. But cannon fodder makes for epicness in an RTS.
@GuitarGOD101 Their a symbol of Dawn of War, not the warhammer universe... the symbol of the Warhammer universe is the Space Marine and according to the Warhammer Codex's the greatest of all the Marine Chapters are the Ultramarines - THATS why we're playing as Ultramarines. Their the heart and core of Warhammer 40k and a symbol. Space Wolfs and Dark Angels are great but they are not held in that same position.
@McMuffin9000 Yeah, from what I recall Warhammer 40k created the original Space Marines. Their quite unlike any modern Space Marines, their not like Gears, their not like Halo's Spartans, their not like the Helghast or the ISA (basically not the military hoo-rah guys. Their more like Roman Leggionaires/Knights/Samurai/Spartans in Space (because of the way they act).
Can't wait... @TerraMantis: I don't believe the Mobile Infantry in Starship Troopers were ever referred to as "marines," but certainly they fit the mold. Absolutely great book, far better than the near-totally unrelated film (which, to be fair, is great in its own twisted way). Now, the Warhammer 40K Space Marines (dating to 1987) are an entirely different kind of space marine. Genetically modified, unaffected by aging, religiously (or idolatrously) devout, often wielding psychic powers, and generally awesome.
WARNING: this game will probably require a 4 hour high speed download in order to install from DVD like Dawn of War 2 does! Avoid it.
@McMuffin9000 The oldest thing i ever read about a space marine in was Starship Troopers which was from the 50's and i think Heinlein, the writer, wrote another book about space marines back in the 30's, but i never read that one. So the Doom guy is roughly 60 years late.
I always dreamed of an RPG, where you can kill guys brutally with a facepunch. Prototype was cool, but did bad to satisfy my hidden bloodthirsty sociopath. I hope it will have good re-playability. Also I hope there will be Terminator armor, with terminator heavy bolter/flamethrower, of course, so I can spill more orcish blood faster, for Emperor.
so far there is supposed to be orks and chaos to fight i hope in multiplayer u can use different races
I think they chose Ultramarines because they were known for their great ability to defend a planet/city from invaders/siege.
This one will be all out Devastation lol Hope the levels will be destroyable give us something new in a good game shooter like Warhammer 40 000
@BelmontWolf Well in that case I still want to cut people in half with a chainsword... and really... HONESTLY if they ONLY place in co-op do you realize how unpleased half the fanbase would be? Considering EVERY dawn of war game had multiplayer to move to the epic realm of a shooter then go 'Ehhhh... no multiplayer this time'... I'd be let down by them
@Roarzz as far as i can say multiplayer in some form was confirmed most likely it will be just coop multiplayer but if there is any kind of versus it will be restricted to marines and orks most likely
