Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade is a Massively Online Third Person Shooter. Players select one of four factions of the 41st millennium and fight other players for control of a persistent world at war. As they fight their way across the planet, players claim territory in massive battles and earn the right to customize and improve their characters in a deep progression system drawn from Warhammer 40,000 lore. Eternal Crusade’s combat is fully action-based – you shoot or swing with a button, but whether you pull off a headshot, or block an incoming chainsword is entirely based on your skill. In addition, gamepads are fully supported. Both ranged and melee weapons have equal emphasis — as in the iconic battles of Warhammer 40,000. Combat begins at a distance with guns and heavy vehicle-mounted weaponry before progressing to bloody blade-on-blade action with brutal executions.

No Recommendation / Blank

An ambitious and promising multiplayer shooter take on 40K that's left Early Access a little prematurely.

5.3 / 10.0
Leif Johnson

Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade's big multiplayer battles create some fun combat that captures the feel of the Warhammer 40K universe enough, but it currently doesn't offer the amount of content I'd expect from a $50 game. Balance and optimization issues also complicate the fun, as do missing elements in the shop and unfinished features that all suggest Eternal Crusade was released a bit too soon.

Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade shows a whole lot of promise as an exciting team-based multiplayer shooter. But 'promise' is less than what's demanded when we're talking about a game which is released, rather buggy, and not always as intuitive as an action-heavy game should be. At $49.99, it's hard to justify the investment until the price drops or the game is patched up respectably, but the potential and the fun it offers is real all the same.

What's worse is that the problems are also of a technical nature.
