It depends on region. Read this: http://pc.ign.com/articles/107/1071607p1.html

[Farrell also revealed the 40K project will have different pricing structures depending on which part of the globe the game is played.

"The way we're building the 40K MMO, and we think it's the right way, is with a flexible business model in mind. We think the subscription model still works in North American and Europe, It's more challenging in Asia, so we're building it in a way that we can either use time-based sessions or microtransactions as the business model in different markets," Farrell said.]

Its not out for a long time. Maybe we'll be paying with our thumbprints by that time

@mandarin

Yeah, I've really puzzled as to why they've started the hype machine for this game so far before release. It could backfire on them if they can't keep raising the public's interest right up until release day.

That was a really cool video.

The guy obviously loves high end graphics, that sets me at ease.

And everybody loves toggles in his video controls.

GG on trolling my troll troll


On that note maybe I should have elaborated more so random internet strangers don't get offended by my lack of articulation.

The UI looks very familiar, and I recall a post here on Massively a few weeks ago that had several games UI's over-layed on top of each other showing the similarities. The screen shot reminded me of that post

In light of Vigil studios comment a month or so ago about how easy it will be for WoW players to transition into WAR40k the similarities between the UI above and the WoW UI struck me as odd.

offense? lul, der was nun
l2reedintocomments lul

@nt: It's not innovative. Gosh, really? You know, here was me thinking that "accessible to WoW players" meant the game was going for hardcore sandbox audience! How wrong was I!?

Online video players that don't cache just plain blow chunks! Who ever uses them on there site needs to be taken out back and whiped with a wet noodle over and over again.

That poor site has crapola for bandwidth. ARGH!

Why does Massively keep calling this Warhammer: Age of Reckoning 40k? WAR doesn't stand for Warhammer, damnit!

Also, they already said this like, months ago.

Also also, this game will be awesome. I think. I don't get why people are hating on it already. There is so little information out about it.

I think most people just think WAR is an abbreviation. For Warhammer.

Why in caps? Because otherwise it wouldn't stick out compared to those other MMO titles with their fancy all-caps acronyms.

@x(wai)x

You couldn't be more wrong. Yes, WAR is an acronym for Warhammer. More specifically Warhammer: Age of Reckoning. Notice the capital letters? See them? W-A-R. HOLY SHIT!!!!

Perhaps try LOOKING MORE CLOSELY before trying to bash on something. You guys made yourself look completely retarded.

Not dark enough. If my game engine doesn't run off the blood of freshly punched kittens and harvested puppy souls, it's immediate and irrevocable fail.

... it is pretty close however.

Okay, I didn't expect that interview to be as informative as it was. Nice to have a warhammer mmo video that doesn't contain Paul Barnett making an ass of his self.

They're saying all the right things right now, but most developers do.

Anyone else happy that they're shooting for mid-range pcs and not your best buy special?

I'm tired of th weak ass graphics when I have a rig that can handle more (as long as it makes since). The inclusion of DX11 is a big plus for me.

Yeah me too, I'll be gearing up for dx11. Can't wait!
