Article.

This looks to be the first of Focus Home's new Warhammer games they announced the other year. The screenshots look stellar, so I'm excited to see what comes of this.

So Streum On Studio again, eh? I haven't played Space Hulk: Deathwing, and I have heard mixed opinions on it, but their visuals are pretty much guaranteed to be amazing and on point for the 40k aesthetic.

One of the best 40k games, really under rated IMO.

+1 for Mechanicus, agree it's one of the best 40k games and while it's not perfect, it definitely scratches the XCOM40K itch.

And an extra +1 for the outstanding soundtrack.

Mechanicus is the best for soundtrack alone. I still think (while repetitive) Deathwing is a triumph. The atmosphere is unmatched. I have very high hopes for this game. Excited to snag some enforcer weapons.

Yeah, but it's the bloody Cogboys...where's my team of Kasrkin?!

Joking, Mechanicus was pretty good. Not as good as XCom, but fun.

Could you imagine the amount of classes you could do if you tried to represent the complete array of factions in 40k, Mouthwatering. As for Mechanicus I didn't bother with as i'm really not a fan of the faction but I must admit I do jam out to:

I thought it was barely above mobile game quality.

Give the 40k license to Larian Studios and they'll make the best turn based rpg of all time guaranteed.

ROFL are you in the BG3 early access? It's trash. Larian would turn it into a joke where the Space Marines try and hook up with the Dark Eldar.

Larian is an utter disappointment.
Q:  Is there room for hope in the grim dark future of Warhammer 40,000?
A:  I do hope not because then it won't be the 40k universe anymore.

Oh hell yes. I hope it has stupidly overcomplicated RPG mechanics, E.Y.E. was a sloppy, barely functional masterpiece (not even being sarcastic it was so uniquely janky it wrapped around to being engaging again).

Now then. I've no experience with BG3 but both Divinity: Original Sin and D:OS2 are outstanding games, among the best of the last decade IMO. Obviously BG3 is their focus but if they ended up working on a Warhammer IP I'd be extremely enthusiastic about it.

The aesthetics are pretty simple, something that deathwing or vermintide easily beat, but they, the gameplay, and music certainly aren't "mobile game quality". It's extremely 40k and a great experience.

Lovely soundtrack, great 2nd edition aesthetics :D
Cinema itself is a trick of time — still pictures passed through a focused beam of light at 24 frames per second. We are reminded of that in La Jetée...

This is perhaps the only concept that would make me actually consider playing an fps again.

Agreed, depending on reviews it would likely be the first I'd pay for since ages. Deathwing looked great, but had flaws, maybe I need to give it more of a chance. Hopefully this won't be punishing!

From what I gather yes, they can make their own games.

They haven't demonstrated any ability to make a game that is respectful of another IP so far. The BG3 alpha is a disaster unless you are really into getting your characters to hook up. :P
