War Hammer 40 000

After much foreshadowing, hints and developer interviews, Behaviour Interactive’s MMO, set in the grim darkness of the far future, has finally opened up founders support. As you would expect, this gives the option for players to back the game financially, with certain rewards as starting bonuses. The various packs give buyers the option to reserve a character name, have a unique title of the Arkhona Vanguard, reserve a Guild name, and early access to the title among many other benefits. These are the basics however, with many offering far more lucrative options. The high tier $450 Xenos pack offers various permanent bonuses and enough money to buy effectively every item for all factions in the game.

However, there are various far cheaper options available beyond the founders’ packs. These include $10 additional character slots, limited edition relic weapons for all factions, stacks of starting cash and a monthly subscription bundle.

The Rogue Trader shop also offers major bonuses to factions, with multiple hero units on offer, various vehicles and further relic weapons. The heroes so far include an Eldar Autarch, Outcast Ranger, Fallen Captain, Possessed Marine, Cybork Madboyz, Skarboy Kommando, and a Damned Legionnaire.

Extensive artwork has also been released depicting the unique skins of each heroes, and more importantly brief clips of pre-alpha footage have given players a good look at the game. The current combat system appears to be closely emulating the successful WARHAMMER 40,000 SPACE MARINE, but with vehicle combat.
