[Media] Warhammer 40.000: Eternal Crusade: A Picture is Worth 40,000 Words

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,658MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The old saying goes that a picture is worth a paltry thousand words unless you're a reader at MMORPG.com. In that case, two pictures are worth 40,000 words as these exclusive images will prove. We teamed up with the Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade team to give our readers a first ever look. Check it out and then leave your thoughts in the comments.

This morning we got these two exclusive pictures from the Eternal Crusade team and renowned 40K artist Hardy Fowler.  It may not be much, but if you play Warhammer 40,000 then you can find some awesome details. Basically the team at Behaviour is launching Phase 2 of the game and are about to make some new announcements. Here is what we can scrape together from these two pictures.

    this picture is worth 4 words.  not taken from game.

    the missing link in a chain of destruction.

    All spelling and typographical errors are based soely on the fact that i just dont care. If you must point out my lack of atention to detail, please do it with a smile.

    On the other hand, the second picture also has the Dark Angels, Blood Ravens and Space Wolves present. The Apothecary I've got no idea of though.

     

    Just saying don't read too much into the factions represented.

    Quoted from their homepage, though it doesn't tell us that much:

     

    "Each army has its own form of diversity, in the form of Chapters, Legions, Clans or Craftworlds. All warriors of a faction must choose one of these organizations. The choice affects not only your appearance, but also provides a set of bonuses and abilities unique to that division.

     

    Space Marine Chapters participating in the crusade include the proud Ultramarines, noble Blood Angels, ferocious Space Wolves and mysterious Dark Angels.

     

    Together, elite warriors from different chapters may form Battle Squads, fighting as a unit and building their legend in the Eternal Crusade."

     

    So it would seem you can choose any of these chapters.

    I just really hope your choice of chapter sets your class.

    I actually hope the Chapter doesnt set your class, but I do hope the Chapter gives bonuses to specific classes to encourage a class that suits the Chapter image...much like in the image above lol.

    Also from the new update, the Space Marine chapters are:

    Battle Brothers of the Adeptus Astartes

    Each army has its own form of diversity, in the form of Chapters, Legions, Clans or Craftworlds. All warriors of a faction must choose one of these organizations. The choice affects not only your appearance, but also provides a set of bonuses and abilities unique to that division.

    Awesome to see the Space Wolves finally get some action in the game space. 

    Sorry but I'm biased to Blood Angel Terminators. Class is picked...

    Currently waiting for the MMO industry to put out something good.

    YAH BABY! LET'S HYPE THIS GAME TO KINGDOM COME! WOOO! 

     

    But really... This picture is not worth a whole article... Come on MMORPG.com! You're doing the same exact thing you did with SWTOR and Guild Wars 2... It gets old.

    All these pictures tell me is that W40K: EC will be a Warhammer 40k game. So yes these picture state the obvious better then 40.000 words could do. 
  • TashaGTashaG San Leandro, CAPosts: 23Member

    Yes in the grim dark future of Warhammer 40k there is only Men!

    WTF no women! I guess this is another miss for me.
