Shine A Light: Dark Millenium Online Trailer

By Quintin Smith on June 8th, 2011.

In my future, Space Marines are rapid deployment Feng Shui experts

In the grim darkness of the future, there is only Warhammer 40k MMORPG Dark Millenium Online. No, seriously- I’m not sure that there’s another game we’ve been posting about this E3 week with a release date as far off as 2013. Curiously, this (brief) trailer brands the game as a “Massively Multiplayer Online Action Experience”, and when I had a brief chat with the developers at Gamescom last year I do remember them talking about how they were developing some revolutionary new kind of combat. Hmm. Will this be the first massively multiplayer 3rd person shooter? Only time will tell. So, so much time.

THQ Says 40k MMO Due By March 31, 2013

By Jim Rossignol on February 3rd, 2011.


That’s because they told their investors that the maximalist sci-fi Warhammer game is going to fall in the “fiscal year 2013″. That’s an imaginary year made of numbers that falls between April 2012 and March 2013. So the field is pretty wide, but we can expect it to turn up by the end of 2012, maybe. There’s actually a surprising amount of information available on the game, given that is is so far away, and we still seem to know almost nothing about it. See this interview, and also this trailer, and this screenshot gallery.

Raargh: Darksiders Released, Impressions

By Jim Rossignol on September 24th, 2010.


The PC version of THQ’s demonic hack ‘em up adventure Darksiders is out today, and I’ve been having a bit of play. In it you thump your way through the hyperbolic story a fallen horseman of the apocalypse. With an ultimate goal of cosmic revenge, you chop many unpleasant creatures into pieces with a sword the size of an ironing board. A satisfying undertaking, you might think. And perhaps a welcome break from World War II RTS titles, too? Well, read on for some more thoughts.

Inquisition: Dark Millenium Online Interview

By Quintin Smith on August 23rd, 2010.

Seems these are the five classes that'll be available to the Imperium. Go! Go! Try and name them all!

I’m interested in Dark Millenium Online, the 40K MMORPG. I really am. I just wish Vigil Games would reveal more about it, so while I was at GamesCom I hatched a truly brilliant plan. Unfortunately my sock full of pennies and painstakingly sharpened Biro were taken off me at the door of their booth, so I settled for a straight interview with Executive Producer Tim Campbell. You can read it right after the jump.

WH40k Dark Millennium 1st Faction Revealed

By Jim Rossignol on August 21st, 2010.


Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online is looking like one of the highlights of GamesCom, and we’ll have an interview turning up pretty soon. In the meantime you can check out this new trailer, which details the first playable faction: The Imperium Of Man. Not much of a surprise, granted. But playable Adeptus Mechanicus? That’s my first character already sewn up, then. Lots more footage below, go: behold.

Warhammer 40K Online: The Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on June 15th, 2010.


At last we get to look at THQ and Vigil Games’ Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online. We don’t know much about it, other than it’s taking an “action” stance on the traditional MMORPG template, and it’s full of maximalist Warhammer sci-fi absurdity. I’m sure more details will emerge as E3 trundles onward, and THQ also confirm that “more details” will appear at GamesCom in August. This trailer seems to all be in-engine, with a few seconds of game UI displayed too. More importantly, I suspect, there are cocking great titans walking about. Go take a look.

Darksiders Decide To Side With PC

By Jim Rossignol on March 30th, 2010.


THQ have dropped us a line to mention that console hack-n-slash business Darksiders will be coming to PC in June. Not played it myself, but I’ve heard good things, so this is pleasing. It’s a game about WAR, whose name must be spelled in all-capitals and shouted if you say it out loud, one of the horsemen of the apocalypse, doing harm to demons and stuff. Vigil Games’ David Adams says this: “We are really excited to have the opportunity to bring Darksiders to the global PC audience. We feel that the growth of digital distribution and PC online communities creates a great environment for our game. We are working really hard to make sure that key features such as user-defined resolutions, interface and both keyboard and game pad control sets are all up to the standards for today’s discerning PC consumer.” That’s YOU, because you discern all the time. Hooray! (Original launch trailer below.)
