    It's a really dark setting, some 40.000 years in the future, with a rich lore that has been developed with Games Workshop's tabletop games since like 30 years now. The official website of the game is like non-existant atm but I've been going over all the news and the interviews at http://www.vigilgames.com/. The world is very chaotic and even the so-called good guys are fighting with each other, so I'm hoping for less faction based PvP. It's going to be so awesome! <3

    Also, if you've played any of the Dawn of War games, it'll give you a good clue.

    They good guys don't fight each other! They all convinced the others are corrupted by Chaos xD

    Yes they do. Dark Angels vs Space Wolves, Eldar vs the Imperium, the list is loong.

    Anyway, so far in the game the speculated races are Chaos (demons, cultists, renegade chaos-marines, etc) and Orks (greenskins) as "evil faction races" and the Imperium (humans - the Imperial Guard, the genetically-engineered and enhanced super humans aka the Space Marines) and Eldar (tough "space elves") as "good guy races". Then there'll be the Tyranids, alien-like species controlled by AI, kinda like Balaur in AION perhaps, to PvE against.

    Well yeah but DA think SW are corrupted by Chaos and want to eh purify them and their world ^^
    tbh, SW commander special powers are overpowered :s

    Eldar is not a 'good' race according to humans, they'll work together vs Chaos, Necron, Tyranids, Dark Eldar and Orks. But they still enemies. All depends on the Farseer and Commander in question.

    Played cron and nids in tabletop ;)

    These mechs are the so-called titans, it's already been said there will be PC-driven vehicles, ranging from attackbikes, trikes, tanks, flying machines, the lot.

    There is no real 'good' 40k tbh they all hate each other :p

    Eldar couldn't give a crap about mankind all they want is there objective if it works with or against humans they will quite happily kill them

    Space marines will kill anything to get the job done including imperial guard in the way or other space marines that 'may' be corrupt

    Imperial Guard are probably as good as it gets but they hate their own commanders :p

    Not quite sure how its going to work though, as like 1 space marine is meant to be a walking tank and would take several imperial guards to take him down, will have to stick to lore some how

    edit: if THQ are involved its gotta be good

    Thanks for clearing that up, lorelol.
    Naturally everyone and their mom would rather play a Space Marine over a lousy Imperial Guardsman, but they're hinting at stuff like "you start off as a lowbie n00b guardsman, as you level you get access to another class", kinda like prestige classes, the Death Knight in WoW, etc.

    THQ that made Dawn of War is all over this, along with Vigil that made Darksiders, using the same engine as their console game on this MMORPG is pretty ambitious. The unreal one iirc.

    bit odd lore wise then as imperial guards aren't good enough to be space marines, they aren't genetically bred for it, i.e. they get scared alot

    but they could do things like start of as scout class/initiate > marines > veterans etc

    just hope there isn't a million force commanders running about

    Doubt you get your old guardsmen turned into a Marine, yeah this won't happen.
    Atm what I've heard like hints at "humans start off as Guardsmen and then choose their path unlocking other classes, etc"

    Well a guardsman is a veteran after 1 battle, maybe he could get up to inquisitor or commisar ranks etc but that's about it...
    Certainly won't be psykers or SM's etc normally.

    Feels a bit strange if you could :s Lore-wise that is...

    There is a movie called Space Marine also. Tbh even if you like 40K lore/worlds/whatever, I cannot recommend it at all. I watched it and felt like suing the makers for making me waste an hour or so of my life. The worst "movie" I have ever seen in my entire life.

    It was all computer generated, and tbh, some of the work they did in creating it was very impressive so credit where credit is due, but overall, it was boring and the voice acting was probably the worst in the history of the universe.
