I've never liked warhammer, and this won't change my mind.

To much use of; pwn and epic from the relic guy.

Looks like a gears of war mod

Posted by DFSVegas

So it's a less visually impressive Gears of War... Greeeeeeeeeaaaaaaat.

What. This isn't an rts.

So it's Gears of War with way campier space marines....

Posted by J12088

Pity..combat looks...alright. Levels look pretty dull and boring though. :(

Posted by Maginnovision

@Astromarine: @DudeOlav: So there ARE warhammer fans here.

Posted by Feigr

The part about space marines living for hundreds of years is true, but it's worth adding that some space marines have been alive for thousands of years. They basically don't die of old age, only in battle.

this looks cool to me, ill give it a look when it comes out

Posted by Meowshi

There's no cover, so calling it Gears of War is pretty silly.

Posted by CookieMonster

5 minutes in and I can already tell this game isn't for me.

I like WH40k but this looks too generic. It is too bad. Maybe I'm just let down by my own unrealistic expectations because when they first announced this game I thought it would be a co-op "action-RPG". I guess there are some RPG elements since you choose and upgrade weapons.

I love the W40K fiction.  I used to play a ton of Space Hulk in my youth (both boardgame and videogames).  This looks fun, it will be interesting to see how deep they dig into the lore and arrray of space marine tech.

You're all wrong.

Posted by yinstarrunner

Why is everyone saying this is gears of war? There's NO FUCKING COVER SYSTEM. And a focus on MELEE COMBAT. Oh, I forgot that every game with third-person shooting is now a gears of war clone. My bad.

Anyway, I'm pretty ambivalent towards WH40k, but this game looks pretty awesome. Jump pack looks sweet.

I got to play some of this at Manchester MCM Expo this weekend gone. I quite enjoyed it. Played sort of like God of War with guns.

Game really gives off a Darksiders vibe

All this video did for me was reminding me that I really should get around to checking out Dawn of War II

That's what I see when I look at it. And that's the reason I don't like it.
 
I don't want to see one dude wandering around winning the war. I want to see him as part of a squad in the middle of a battle.

Vinny, start with this Eisenhorn trilogy.

Posted by benjo_t

Come on, guys. Just because it's a third person camera doesn't mean it's a GoW clone/mod. In fact, the dude even states in the video that they made a conscious decision to not have a cover system, which is pretty much the staple of the Gears games.

Posted by Make_Me_Mad

Alright.  Now make a game where you can play as the Sororitas, and I'll be set!

Edited by GunstarRed

Think it looks kinda cool, up until the bit where he was trapped in a tiny area against a constantly teleporting enemy, That looked mildly annoying. Mark Strong though... I'm almost sold  on it just by him doing the voice of the main  Space Marine dude.

I think it looks cool, something new i guess even if it is similar to GOW  tbh there isn't much else to play atm apart from XBLA games.

Posted by fr0y0

As cool as it looks, I wish there were more of those one-hit-kill meelee animations. I can see myself not really looking at them anymore after just a short while.

And to all of you who've said this "looks like Gears of War" or something of that effect: Are we watching the same video?

Posted by Buck

"X looks like Gears of War with Y" Really? Stupid trends like this needs to stop. Like some have said already, there is a lot more games other that GoW with big dudes in the third person perspective...

Relic stated in a video that it was originally like this, but it took away the feeling that you were a super solider.

I agree with you though.

Posted by Rmack

Looks like a shitload of fun to me. Can't wait to finally play it.

Posted by Zurv

looks pretty repetitive... relic games have been getting more and more boring to me after CoH.

Edited by Grissefar

So it's not a shooter like Gears and it doesn't have a solid melee system like God of War, Ninja Gaiden or Bayonetta. It's something wierd and hollow in between.

Posted by Funkydupe

Anyone know how many people in Co-op?

Posted by Vitor

Looks like good old dumb fun - big fan of the universe even though I've never collected the miniatures themselves. Enjoyed what Relic did with the DoW games and this looks like a pretty solid TPS. Melee looks super satisyfing.

Those pauldrons man.....good god!!!

Edited by Do_The_Manta_Ray

Really liking the look of this game. Especially the lightning is really well done, and it's seldom you see such smooth animations outside of scripted sequences. The Ork horde scrambling about constantly brought a smile to my face, though I feel like it's almost a crime watching this game with audio commentary, particulary when you're up against orks "THE RED ONES GO FASTA!". Anyone else remember how terrific the audio in Dawn of War 2 was?

Think the single-player looks like a ton of fun, but for me it's going to be the Multiplayer that carries the torch. Relic's multiplayer has always had that certain, little something to it that just makes you come back for more. And with all the different customization options as well as what is looking to be a robust perk/leveling system, I get the feeling my studies are going to suffer, and so shall those pesky Ultrasmurfs!

Posted by CaLe

Looks surprisingly good.

Jetpack seems pretty fun to play around with, I like having the freedom to jump around the place like an idiot.

Posted by Thor_Molecules

Looks like a decent game. Nothing incredible, but fun to play none-the-less.   

I do hope there's a immense variety in weapon types and a well-done upgrade/skill system, because doing the same two attacks over and over with the hammer for hours on end, does seem pretty damn boring. The fun-element of the hammer already wore off for me, over the course of a 20 minute quicklook.

Same engine so can't say I'm surprised it would end up having a similar feeling. Surprised it wasn't UE3 to be honest but I still think it looks decent enough. Hopefully the art team cooked up some crazy environments to explore - The WH40K universe is surprisingly colourful considering the subject matter. Would love for that to show through.

I'm in for this. Personally I am not much of a melee person, and played sterngard in kill team(next i'll do the mech). This is a wierd universe just looking at it.

Posted by XcL

Not sure what to think of this game it looks like a decent War hammer game but it just seems by the numbers 3rd person , no cover -check, Rocket launcher- check a regenerating health equivalentt check not sure.
