Brothers! War calls you. Will you answer? (Codex: Space Marines)
Lyon, FRANCE – January 26, 2016 – BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe and Behaviour Interactive announced today that Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade will be available for PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC starting summer 2016. For the first time, Warhammer 40,000 fans will join their favorite factions in the fiercest and most authentic Warhammer 40,000 battles ever realized in a massive online shooter.
Based on the multimillion-selling and extensive universe of Warhammer 40,000, Eternal Crusade will take gamers into a vicious battle between four factions of the 41st millennium in order to control a persistent world at war. Whether it is PvP (Player versus Player) or PvE (Player versus Environment) squads will have to work together and engage in massive battles and exterminate the other factions! To do so; fans can choose from twenty different sub-factions, earn hundreds of weapons, customization options and accessories drawn from 29 years of Warhammer 40,000 lore to create their perfect warriors!
“It’s an honor to work on a Warhammer 40,000 game that’s already getting great community feedback on our pre-alpha. We can’t wait to share what we’ve built with a wider audience.” – Stephen Mulrooney, SVP Behaviour Digital
“Our portfolio keeps on growing thanks to our strong First Party titles, but also thanks to our strong partnerships with the likes of Behaviour! Working on such a license is truly a bliss for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment. We are expecting big things to come out of this partnership and I can’t wait to see this.” Hervé Hoerdt, VP of Marketing and Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.
