Warhammer 40’000 is all about violent action and it’s something of a wonder that its rich universe hasn’t spawned any decent action games. I haven’t played the 2003 title Fire Warrior, but the word is not in its favor. Relic has been very good to the licence with its Dawn Of War series and I greet the news of them doing an action-RPG about the Space Marines with fanboyish excitement. The trailer is really very good.
I am still left wanting for a modern strategy game take on the franchise – Dawn Of War is too wrapped in RTS tropes to really scratch that Total War itch I have. I’d settle for a turn-based version, I think.
I dream about getting to make a great Warhammer 40’000 videogame.
