    40K coming to PS3 and 360

    Hey guys,
    Hope this is the right section for this, if not feel free to move it somewhere more appropriate.

    IGN just posted an article that suggests a 40k video game may be coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3. Here it is in its entirety:

    An interesting job listing went up on Tsumea, the well-known site for Australian and New Zealand game developers, yesterday, advertising a number of positions for a new game based on the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

    The game is to be developed by Brisbane-based THQ Studio Australia and the listing simply states that the company is "seeking videogame development talent across all disciplines to work on an action game for Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 based on the popular Warhammer 40,000 universe from Games Workshop."

    "We want the most talented, most enthusiastic and motivated developers to join us," it goes on to say, "and help push Brisbane and THQ Studio Australia to the forefront of Australian development." The company is looking for a Lead Artist, Lead Animator, Environment Artist, Animator, Senior Designer, Audio Designer, Engine programmer, Game Programmer and QA Lead.

    While the listing itself gives no details as to the type of game it may be, THQ Studio Australia's website states that: "We are currently looking for people to work on a next-gen brutal, intimate melee combat game using a world-class brand".


    -No doubt we will have a long wait before this sees the light of day, but if they pull it off it will be amazing! Here's hoping there's not a Smurf in sight...

    Could be interesting, but I think it would be too much asking for marines not to show up.. Seeing as its melee.. they will probably do what relic did with dawn of war and take the most basic races that you can almost sort of relate too. Like Orks Marines chaos and eldar again or summit. I think that gets my point across.. Anyways heres hoping this rumour is true!

    Wouldn't it be great if they made an fps? Like the classic Fire Warrior way back in 2001. I caught my brother playing on that the other day, makes me want to play it again. It doesn't have to be a Fire Warrior this time, maybe an Imperial Guard; where you could go anywhere you want, do whatever you want etc.

    Of course, this is me playing with the idea

    Although it would take quite a while, I agree, but what a game it would be as then the developers would have a better idea on how to push all of it's features to the max without dumbing down anything. I sure hope that when this thing hit the light, loads of people are going to flock to it, with luck on their part.

    What if it's going to have the online feature... *Drools*


    Great find thewineguy, kudos from me my friend

    There are plenty of possibilities. I'd love to see an RPG, KOTOR-style, based on the Dark heresy system.

    Hopefully they make it in a mix of COD and Oblivion style gameplay, But with Gears of War style bloodshed.

    Start out with Marines, Chaos, Imperial Guard, and Orks, but make the other races available for download on the market instead of making a second.

    Have HUGE online games with dedicated servers. Maybe up to 100 players in one game? All races are available for online play, the higher your rank, the more you can equip your warrior.

    I doubt they will make it like this.

    I can dream I guess.

    All I want is Half-Life 2: Deathmatch, except with 40k races and weapons... it doesn't make sense that every different race would be running around trying to kill each at once, but it would just be cool.

    If this rumored PS3/360 thing happens I might just have to buy one of those systems.

    I guess I'm the only bugger hoping for a Battlefleet Gothic-themed game, then??

    I agree an inquisition based story-line would make a fantastic game for that sort of set up. Couldn't argue with another FPS though.
