Warhammer 40.000: Eternal Crusade: Pikko Server Backbone Announced

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelMMORPG.COM Staff Posts: 21,764 Epic


Behaviour Interactive is proud to announce a new Eternal Crusade partnership with MuchDifferent, a leader in multiplayer game network technologies. In order to let a massive number of players meet in a shared environment, Behaviour Interactive has decided to power its most anticipated game using PikkoServer. This technology is the same one that MuchDifferent used to set a record breaking 1,000 players in a single game environment.

According to Stephen Mulrooney, Behaviour Interactive’s Executive Technical Director, “MuchDifferent offers a level of game server scalability for massively multiplayer online games that no one else can. With PikkoServer we’ll be able to meet the Gaming community’s expectations and more simultaneous players”.
Christian Lönnholm, CEO of MuchDifferent is “very excited that Behaviour will be using PikkoServer to deliver a world class multiplayer experience.”
This first partnership is a new step towards Behaviour Interactive’s vision of making a game which will stand out both by its gameplay and its ability to gather the Gaming community around the project. Miguel Caron, Behaviour Interactive Online’s Head of Studio is already picturing this new range of possibilities as he invites the community to “Imagine seeing 500 Space Orks running towards you shouting Waaagh! While you and 499 of your Space Marines friends get ready to defend your Forteress!! I know I can!!!’’ 


Behaviour Interactive, developers of Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade is planning on making a significant announcement on Wednesday, August 14th. The official Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade site will be updated with the news sometime during the day. We'll keep you posted as the story develops.

Keep your eye on the Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade.

    Hey that isn't funny. 

    Limited alpha/beta testing before eoy.

    Everybody who pre-orders get's a real life Titan. I tell you guys, that's going to cut my commute to work in half! Seriously though I think it's forums but would do a manly arm pump if they announce Imperial Guard.

    It will cost you $300 to enter alpha


    but you will get a limited edition necromunda figure if you do

    I don't know if it was already there but there is an unclickable forum link at the top of their website now.

    1000? That's pretty cool, if they make it like how ps2 has 2000 per cont then that would be the icing on the cake.

    Yeah, it's been there for a while. They said they'll be starting up a community soon - probably concurrently with their launch for closed beta, I'd imagine.

    Sciva, they are talking 1000 people in one specfic area. Not the whole server.

    Im not sure what ps2 did, but first person shooter wise, a 1000 people fighting is a lot compared to cs-source with 60 or bf with a 100.

    Remember its also a fps game. So registration and ping is important. If they are saying 1000 in one area, they mean it will work well with 1000 in one area.

    I read somewhere this is actually a third-person shooter much like Space Marine.

    Pretty much but the difference between FPS and TPS is perspective, not much else.
