What we have here is very early, cobbled together footage of what Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade will be like. Footage begins around 3:20 if you want to skip past the lady speak.

So, looks a lot like Relics Space Marine multiplayer, the level is a mock up to facilitate testing the combat concepts and the models are not final….but I guess that won’t stop people deciding one way or the other anyway. I suppose what it does show is that they intend kill moves and over the shoulder camera gameplay, other than that it’s pretty vague.

They are claiming 1000 players per battle, by the time it is released in 2015 that may well be the norm. I’m still skeptical how normal it will feel, given everybody has their very unique perspective on internet geography and speed. However Planetside 2 is doing an admiral job of open world massive combat, so it’s getting there.
