While last week's E3
is still fresh in our minds and hearts, THQ
is giving us a great reason to look forward to next year's expo: the chance to get our hands on Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online.
that THQ is committing to this time frame. Danny Bilson
says that WAR40K
will be the highlight of the company's display: "Next year, I promise you, next E3. I've already got plans for what the booth is like. The centrepiece of the booth will be that MMO."
We caught only a glimpse of a teaser trailer
for the game at this year's E3. Vigil Games
is hard at work on the $50+ million project
, and Bilson says that it's looking good and on track for a launch between April 2012 and March 2013.
"It looks fabulous. I like it. I can't speak to it now, or people will kill me. But, I'll tell you what, it plays differently. A little bit... This thing is gonna be special,"
he said. "We're going to come out when we come out in a big way. I feel like we're fully competitive with the other guys. It'll be seven years in the making when it comes out. We're competing with the best games in the world. You can't mess around with this thing."
