Even though THQ has confirmed that the Warhammer 40,000 MMO is still years away, a few details about the game have dropped onto the internet from a few different sources. First of all, the game will play out as a shooter-based MMORPG, utilizing cover, supressive fire, and flanking; similar to Tabula Rasa. Mythic is also preparing the game to handle raid parties fo up to 70 players, which could be a new milestone for the genre.
Mythic's Creative Director Joe Madureira confidently stated that there will be "tons of stuff hanging off your character, weapons, scrolls... we are going to have the coolest looking characters of any MMO, ever. Once we begin releasing images, feel free to call me on that." Players will be fighting the good fight in "cities, alien temples, Chaos shrines, deserted battlefields, mysterious ruins, ancient structures, and - here's the cool one - 'drifting hulks in space'."
