Behaviour Interactive and Games Workshop® proudly announce a new online game in theWarhammer® 40,000® universe: Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade. Behaviour
Interactive has obtained the rights to create a wholly new MMORPG
persistent war experience for PC, PS4 and Xbox One set in Games
Workshop's universe of the 41stMillennium. 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.
"I am thrilled to announce what will finally be the first MMORPG based on the Warhammer 40,000 license," said Miguel Caron, Head of Studio, Online at Behaviour Interactive. "Eternal Crusade's team are all MMO development veterans and with the support of Behaviour's 20+ years of experience this is going to be the online Warhammer 40,000 universe game that fans have been dreaming of for years!"
"Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade is the second milestone in Behaviours
new online strategic positioning after last year's Star Citizen
Announcement." said Rémi Racine, President and Executive Producer of
Behaviour. "We are very happy with the progress of the online studio and
you should expect more similar announcements to come."
"The depth, breadth and sheer level of detail that the Warhammer 40,000
universe has after 26 years of continuous development makes it one of
the great fantasy settings of our times." said Jon Gillard, Head of
Licensing at Games Workshop. "Experiencing the thrill of first hand
combat in this world of eternal conflict, with thousands of other
players beside you, will be fantastic."
Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade is currently in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One and will release in late 2015.
