Eternal Crusade is now live on Steam early access with a new publisher

    
38

As promised, Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade has closed down its founders program and gone live on Steam’s early access platform.

Now labeled a “massively multiplayer shooter” giving a “massive-scale third-person shooter experience,” the game is apparently being published by Bandai-Namco, which might explain Behaviour’s confidence about its 2016 funding and launch prospects in recent weeks. As we explained yesterday,

“Senior Producer Nathan Richardsson told players that the Steam launch wasn’t a ‘cashgrab’ and that the game was already funded such that it would launch this year regardless, but more money would mean more and faster content. ‘We are simply continuing [the founders program] in the Steam Early Access framework,’ he wrote.”

The companies have confirmed a 2016 console launch on PS4 and Xbox One as well. We’ve included the new in-engine cinematic trailer below.

What a terribad trailer, the game makes a much better impression than this. Don’t let yourself be deluded by this trailer. The game has a lot of potential.

PaganRites Does it play OK on a keyboard setup? Are the controls responsive?

Been in test since Founders were let in, and every time I log in have a blast.  If you enjoy squad based PvP and are a Warhammer fan, I’d say it’s a no brainer you will enjoy this game.  The animations are excellent.  Controls are tight.  Maps are varied and fun.  Highly recommended.

Sorenthaz DugFromTheEarth it looks almost exactly like THQ’s Space Marine game.
