The ashes of THQ still burn hot for many gamers, none as much as the Warhammer 40k fanbase; who lost their hope at a series of 40k based titles from the publisher. One title that got axed with the closure of THQ included the multi-faction MMORPG Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium, created by Darksiders creators, Vigil Games.
Hope returns today as Games Workshop and Behaviour Interactive announce Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade, a third person MMORPG set to be released currently at the end of 2015. Not much is known at the moment, but by heading to the Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade website you will see the site is on the first of 9 phases, with the press release found below.
