Wow i thought this game wasn't coming out anymore.
This game has a lot of ptotential if I remember correctly over most upcoming MMOs.
PvP is in, and has relevance to the game. They also have an extremely unique magic system.

Also, if it hasn't been taken out yet, they are supposed to have Dynamic AI, in such a way that a tribe of gnolls (etc) will build a camp (all the way up to an outpost I believe) over time if you leave them alone. They are also completely roaming, and help for a good distance to their companions.

I am actually going to their website now to confirm this feature is still in though.

Damn It seems the Warhammer game above I was talking about was scrapped. This is basically the sequel to Dark Age of Camelot in a Warhammer casing. I guess thats not all to bad, though I definetly need more information before I will get excited over it. Like if it has a PvP system or not.

Oh well... not like DAoC was a bad game, had alot of unique stuff going for it.

arg, I agree with Mistatee, I thought they cancelled this one a while back. I think it would've been cooler to have a Warhammer 40k MMORPG because today's world lacks good futuristic MMO's. The fantasy MMO genre has been filled out good. But, I guess, since they made it into a good RTS, then they shouldn't have 40k in different fields of play.

This game was actually cancelled a while ago but it came back.
How ever.. this is nothing like the orignal build.

It looks cartoony like World of WarCraft,
It Orignally looked MUCH more real..
I'm very dissapointed.

Actually this is what Warhammer looks like. The artists of Blizzard were inspired by the designs of Warhammer and thats why Warcraft looks like it does.

Warhammer has always looked exactly liked this if you ever decided to gander at the models.

Some update on the game. Useless IGN has a 4 page preview on it so there should be some interesting info for those curious about the game. Heres the link. Some good stuff in there.

If you saw the Orignal trailer for WHO youd know what I was talking about,
As far as it goes I know nothing at all about War Hammer exept my friend
used to pay me to paint his 'special' ones that were metal.
But they were robot ones..

Anyway, the point is, I dont like this style the old one was much cooler.

The minute you start worrying about what a game looks like over how it plays, you start to favour very shitty games that look good and play crap, ie BLACK, Killzone, Lineage2. This is how Warhammer has always looked. You liked something that was NOT Warhammer. You need to get over this little stumbling block you're stuck on. Its about gameplay. And considering these people made Dark age of Camelot, this game will be a winner.
