Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium was, until two weeks ago, a full-blown MMO. Now, to save THQ a bit of money, it’s not.
Instead, the new single- and multiplayer experience is comparable to last year’s Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine more than anything else. THQ’s Danny Bilson said as much in a recent interview (via), revealing: “In particular, the shooting mechanics are real-time, not turn-based. The content is absolutely incredible, and any time anyone ever had any doubts about it, all I had to do was bring them into the room and show them progress on the game. So there’s a tremendous amount of content that was built.”
So don’t compare it to The Old Republic or World of Warcraft anymore. Instead? “If you liked Space Marine, you’re gonna love this thing. It’s much deeper,” Bilson reasoned.
