My friend and I used to talk about a Warhammer 40,000 MMO, and what we’d do with it. Now it looks like a Warhammer 40k MMO is primed and ready to go, but will it be everything that I hoped? Doubtful…
The issue I have is that I want the main races (of which there are almost a dozen) all playable on a multi-sided game. I don’t want it to be good guys versus bad guys. I want it to be open for everyone to fight each other.
I want to be in a battle where it is Tyranids versus Space Marines, and then in the middle of a close combat fight, some Orks drop down and start trying to kill us both, and then some Eldar walk in and start trying to destroy us all. The Space Marines, and the Eldar could make a temporary alliance to make sure the Tyranids get wiped out, and the Orks could use the lack of pressure on them to cause some mayhem for everyone. Doesn’t that sound more fun than good guys versus bad guys?
I am especially worried that it will be Space Marines versus Chaos Marines, as they are pretty much mirrors of each other when it comes to skills. I guess we will have to wait and see when it comes out, but even if it is just the sci-fi version of World of Warcraft I’ve been waiting for, then they’ll definitely make a subscriber out of me.
