Warhammer 40K Trailer Impressions
Me like. Yeah, I know, it’s only a trailer but still, me like.
Obviously it’s impossible to tell whether or not the game will actually be any good based on a 66 second video but it’s definitely sparked my interested and kicked up my internal hype-o-meter another notch. The graphics look nice and seem to have captured the Warhammer 40K vibe well enough plus I’m encouraged to see controllable vehicles and some lovely, fast-paced combat.
No doubt the combat in WAR 40K is going to be a point of heated discussion and the trailer clearly shows something that looks similar to Tabula Rasa and it’s almost FPS style mechanics. Some MMO gamers may hate this form of combat but I’m looking forward to something different from the current, almost turn-based, fantasy combat we have in most games now. How twitch-based Vigil go with the play style will be something they’ll need to monitor closely though less they find themselves without both the traditional MMO audience or the FPS one.
So, overall I’m filled with more positive feelings about Warhammer 40K than I was before. Plus, what’s not to like about Orks with guns?
P.S. Is that Ian McShane doing the voice-over?
