Just because Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade will be primarily a PvP title doesn’t mean that it’s going to section itself off in tiny little instances. On the contrary, Behaviour Interactive recorded a livestream recently in which the team discussed how it will create an open world over which players can fight and conquer.
The main landmass in Eternal Crusade will be a 16-square kilometer continent divided up into well over a hundred contestable areas. The game will create dynamically generated battles when players move into a zone based on how many participants are involved. By defeating two small outposts, a faction can then assault a stronghold, and if that’s conquered, then the winning side claims domination over that region.
For the full details of this system and more from the devs’ own lips, you can watch the team’s latest livestream after the jump.
