The latest newsletter chronicles how players can gain early access to the anticipated title and more. In addition to this enticing news, is the a new introduction from the Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade Community Manager Katie Fleming.

Help us chart our course through the perilous warp by joining the founders program. Build your own Package and change it as many times as you want. Join us in ALPHA and closed BETA to help us make the game YOU want.

Founders will have access to Early Game Modules, including a Shooting Range inside your Squad Strike Cruiser as you travel through warpspace towards the planet of Arkhona, in the Sectorum Obscurus.

Read the full Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade newsletter.

Here is a bit from the most recent newsletter about the new Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade Community Manager Katie Fleming:

My name is Katie Fleming and I am your new Community Manager for Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade. I’m thrilled to be part of the team here at Behaviour Interactive and am planning a ton of goodness for you guys!

To give you a little background on myself, I’ve been a gamer since I was a kid and started out on a Commodore 64. Games like Space Taxi, Super Mario Bros, and Pit Stop were just a few of the hundreds of discs I had. Fast-forward to my next computer and I was majorly addicted to Doom II, Quake, Duke Nukem, and Tomb Raider, just to name a few. Today you’ll find me playing Left 4 Dead 2 on an almost nightly basis, Killing Floor, Tomb Raider, Hitman, and Dead Island.

    What?! They're looking to launch so soon?! I sincerely hope this isn't an indication as to the quality of the game...

    iam looking forward to 'seeing' not reading about the founders program. iam still confused by what it all means tbh.
  • BruceYeeBruceYee Member EpicPosts: 2,556
    I hope the price for the founder's packs are reasonable.

    About 2 months ago if I remember correctly I've seen some gameplay footage right out of their studio. It really didn't even look close to being finished in just 2 more months. There was no World Design shown anywhere in the footage. Smells like we get a lobby based 2-team usual game mode (deathmatch, ctf, domination...) kinda game after all if they are cutting it that short.
     
    edit: nevermind, it's just another alpha buy-in countdown...

    My guess is that it will be a minimum-viable-product release. Those are getting more common and will most likley be the norm for online games in the future.

    This have been a good conversation

    Ok wow, how did they mess up what they just said? I swear first the guy at E3 thinks this is a normal MMO and even after 15 mins of talking about it asks "well will we have tank and spank raid boss's?" and now this?! Ok look the FOUNDERS program and there first real gameplay footage is what is we are getting on the 25th, we are not geting the real game tell LATE next year, and close beta wont start for another 6-7 months.  Please fix this MMO.com? this game suffers from enough misinformation as is  

     

    Also no version of this game will be playable for the next 2-4 months fyi

    Agree with catowar.  This article is very misleading (or at least the way people are interpreting it).  Please note that the article says 'the preparations for game launch starting as early as June 25, 2014'.  'preparations being the operative word here.  The game is not launching this year.  It appears that founders will get access to modules as they are developed for testing purposes.  Basically alpha and beta testing.  Game is not scheduled to launch until late next year.

    please read what I was saying, MMORPG.com got it wrong
  • June 25 is not a launch date for the game. It is the date when they will start selling founder packs. Just read the newsletter. Mmorpg.com got it wrong...

    Crusaders, we DID NOT change our release date. Founders will have acces to early Game Module. Basicly in Jan 2015 you will be in your StrikeCruser flying through WARP in your Cruser Training cage and shooting range... a few months later, a door will unlock and you will have your personal space then later the Strategiarium will be available then finaly after 18 months you will Orbit Arkhona ready to start your Eternal Crusade.

    For Pricing: 40$ for 40K :-) with tons of bonus

    Dont panic, they are releasing the travel to arkhona where you can only move and test a few things, there they (and the founders) can test new updrades and improvements as they come untill the release date is here.

    In my opinion a great idea.

    They need to take a page from Trion and ArcheAge.  How about 300 gets you in the door and work up from there?   You will see gamers frothing at the mouth and clawing each other to buy in to that.

    This makes sense now- sorta like a 'flight' to Arkhona founders ticket- land ingame in 2015!...kinda a very cool concept!

    Im in!!!
