Shine A Light: Dark Millenium Online Trailer

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


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.

This man is a Space Marine

This producer interview from GamesCom has only just been released for some reason; while it’s lacking new footage it does provide more detail on how the thing plays.

Inquisition: Dark Millenium Online Interview

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


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.
