We’ve seen lots of companies try to capitalize on the recent success of games like Dota, League of Legends, Smite and more recently Heroes of the Storm. So it comes as little surprise that Games Workshop wants in on the action. In comes Warhammer 40,000 Dark Nexus Arena. From the looks of it Dark Nexus has the same gameplay we’ve known from many MOBAs with action skills for various “Veterans” that come from all the different races/factions of the 40k universe. Such factions include the Space Marines, Tau Empire, WAAAAGHHHHH Orcs, Chaos forces, Eldar and the Inquisition. These veterans however are fairly generic and are not any named commanders from the lore itself. A few of the veterans:
On top of the Veterans they are also doing a presale however the prices as of right now are kind of absurd but it isn’t too uncommon for MOBAs or even Games Workshop. https://www.darknexusarena.com/
Whitebox Interactive is pleased to announce our upcoming title – Warhammer 40,000: Dark Nexus Arena! Set in the Wych arenas of Commorragh, Dark Nexus Arena is a blend of the twin stick shooter and MOBA genres. In teams of four, Veteran warriors hailing from the Space Marine, Ork, and Tau armies battle in bloody conflict to the death. We are slated to launch in 2016.
Dark Nexus Arena is in development here at Whitebox Interactive by a dedicated group of Warhammer 40,000 fans. Our vision is to adapt a never-before-seen piece of the Warhammer 40,000 universe to a videogame set against the brutal and bloody Dark Eldar Arenas. To that end we are calling on you, the community, to help us. Your feedback will drive our work towards game balance, bug fixes and development of the best Warhammer 40,000 multiplayer battle arena experience.
