Yesterday we heard the news that there was to be a new Warhammer 40K MMO. Games Workshop announced that Eternal Crusade is to step into the gap left by the failed Dark Millennium Online, this time developed by MMO first-timers, Behaviour. It’s not an immediately obvious choice – the studio is primarily known for ports, and their in-house games haven’t been met with critical success. So we reached out to Behaviour, specifically studio online boss Miguel Caron and 40K’s creative director David Ghozland (The Secret World, Far Cry), to find out how the deal came about, why they believe they’re up to the mammoth task, and the direction the game is taking.
The big news here is that this isn’t looking to be a WoW-style game, but rather aim for something more in the ballpark of PlanetSide or EVE. Essentially following the ethos that There Is Only War.
