THQ has officially announced the release date for the upcoming Warhammer 40k MMO. The forces of Order and Disorder will begin their bloody battle on March 31st, 2013. The game is being developed by Vigil; who made the really under-appreciated Darksiders. While Mythic’s Warhammer dropped in popularity pretty quickly, a 40k MMO doesn’t have a “World of Starcraft” to draw people away from it; so fans are eagerly anticipating its release.
Hot on the release date news comes a huge batch of rumors about the game. A post on a popular Warhammer forum claims to spill the beans all about the MMO, and it sure sounds very awesome. For one, Relic is apparently consulting on the game in some way and that alone should put some faith in the game based on their experience with the franchise. Also, its rumored to have combat similar to Relic’s recent Space Marine, which could end up being very awesome in a MMO setting.
