Warhammer 40,000 Eternal Crusade Official First Teaser

"Battle Brothers of the Adeptus Astartes

Each army has its own diversity through Chapters, Legions, Clans or Craftworlds. All warriors of a faction must choose one of these organizations. The choice affects not only your appearance, but also provides a set of bonuses and abilities unique to that division.

Space Marine Chapters participating in the crusade include the proud Ultramarines, noble Blood Angels, ferocious Space Wolves and mysterious Dark Angels.

Together, elite warriors from different chapters may form Battle Squads, fighting as a unit and building their legend in the Eternal Crusade." [1]

Ultramarines, Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Dark Angels, and the Imperial Fist will be the Chapters joining this war.[2]

Player ClassesEdit

The following classes are available in the game.

Tactical Marine:[3] Tactical Marines are the backbone of any Space Marine army. They hold ground; provide fire support and charge into bloody melees, as the ever-changing theatre of war dictates (Source).

Devastator:[4] Devastators are the most heavily armed of all Space Marine squads, trained to assail the enemy from great distance and with overwhelming firepower. Devastators are capable of providing the Tactical and Assault squads with covering fire or engaging enemy vehicles and other heavily armoured targets (Source).

Assault Marine:[5] Space Marines who excel in the fury of close combat are organised into Assault squads and equipped with jump packs that allow them to take the fight to the enemy in brutal close-quarter fighting. Armed with a mixture of pistols and swords, they are terrifying foes in battle, dropping from above like flaming angels of death (Source).

Ground Assault: In most respects these Marines are identical to Assault Marines, except that they trade in their jump packs for Storm Shields. As such, they serve more of a tanking role than their airborne counterparts.

Apothecary: [6] The Apothecary is well-versed in the arts of battlefield aid as well as advanced surgery, cybernetics and bio-engineering. He must also be a warrior of untold might and unquenchable bravery for his place is the bloody heart of battle. If a comrade falls, the Apothecary can use his narthecium to tend the wounds, allowing his return to battle even after the suffering the most appalling of injuries (Source).

Hero & Elite ClassesEdit

The following classes have been confirmed to be available at launch in the game, their descriptions are based off of their tabletop descriptions. It is expected that these classes will fulfill similar roles in the fields of battle of Eternal Crusade.

Chaplain: [7] Chaplains are the spiritual leaders of the Chapter. They administer the rites, preserve the rituals and perform ancient ceremonies of Initiation, Vindication and Redemption that are as important to a Space Marine Chapter as its roll of honour and skill at arms. Chaplains are daunting figures even for other Space Marines to behold. Their power armour is jet black, adorned with icons of battle and tokens of ritual and mystery; their skull helms are death masks that evoke the stern visage of the immortal Emperor (Source).

Librarian: [8] Librarians' talents set them apart from their comrades. They can unleash powerful energy bolts, project force shields or increase their might to near godlike proportions. Some can step outside the confines of linear time, sense the enemy's movements or redirect bullets with the power of their minds. In all of the Imperium there are few greater warrior-mystics combining the prowess of the Adeptus Astartes with the steel discipline needed to contain and control their powers (Source).

Terminator: [9] Terminators are amongst the greatest heroes of Mankind, bold warriors in whom the indefatigable heroism of a Space Marine is combined with the terrible weaponry and indomitable mass of Tactical Dreadnought armour. No foe is safe from a Terminator assault -they are unstoppable and they never yield (Source).

Rogue Trader Class VariationsEdit

The Rogue Trader store offers variations of existing Elite and Hero classes with exclusive variations to their appearance, and to a limited extent, their functionality.

Damned Legionnaire: [10] Wreathed in ethereal flames, the Legion of the Damned are mysterious apparitions known to materialise from thin air during the Imperium’s most dire times of need, gunning down the enemies of Mankind before disappearing once more. While there are many theories, who these terrifying benefactors are remains unknown.

Master of Relics: [11] High ranking Space Marine commanders, the Master of Relics are the custodians of a Chapter’s archeotech relics and ancient battlefield technologies – those rare and powerful artefacts that were used during the early days of the Great Crusade and time of the Horus Heresy, but the manufacture and secrets of which have since been lost. In times of strife, the Master of Relics may bring these potent artefacts to battle, unleashing them upon the enemies of the Imperium.

Vehicles & TransportationEdit

The following vehicles have been confirmed to be available at launch in the game, descriptions are based off of their tabletop descriptions. It is expected that these vehicle will fulfill similar roles in the fields of battle of Eternal Crusade. [12] It has been confirmed that all vehicles with wheels, tracks, or that hover found in the tabletop will find their way into Eternal Crusade (so no flyers), but the following are the ones that have been confirmed directly or mentioned by the developers.

Attack Bike: [13] The roar of the Assault Bike engine has been the last thing heard by unwitting xenos for countless campaigns in the name of the Emperor. Lightning-fast mechanized cavalry, the Space Marine Attack Bike is a highly utilized variant of the Space Marine Bike; the configuration differs by adding a heavily armoured side-car equipped with a heavy weapon. The Attack Bike is designed to bear two Space Marines instead of one; the additional firepower making for a much deadlier, but no less swift, fast attack vehicle.

Rhino: [14] Rhino armoured troop carriers are the mainstay of every Space Marine Chapter's vehicle pool. With an optimal balance of armour, transport capacity and manoeuvrability, the Rhino allows the Space Marine to swiftly redeploy, rush squads into positions of strategic advantage or conduct surgical strikes on the enemy line (Source).

Predator: [15] The Predator is the main battle tank of the Space Marines. Based upon the Rhino chassis, the Predator sacrifices transport capacity for improved frontal armour and heavy turret-mounted armament. The result is a well-armed and mobile tank, equally capable of holding ground or spearheading armoured assaults into heavily defended of enemy territory (Source).

Land Raider: [16] The Land Raider is the single most destructive weapon in the Adeptus Astartes' arsenal. Protected by bonded ceramite and adamantium armour, the Land Raider is impervious to all bar the most destructive weaponry. Equally impressive are its armaments - four lascannon and twin-linked heavy bolters allow the Land Raider to deliver punishing support fire capable of decimating enemy infantry and tanks alike (Source).

Unsorted FactsEdit

  • Techmarines may not be available at launch, but players can expect the most iconic things to be represented, like the Thunderfire Cannon (Source).
  • Scouts are unlikely for launch, but the Sniper Rifle/Stalker Bolter will be included (Source).
  • Although the sub-factions' classes generally fit into the same roles, there are unique flavors to certain classes for particular chapters/warbands/klans/craftworlds. Players should expect to see Long Fangs, Sanguinary Priests, etc (Source).
  • Up to 4 players may be able to drive a Predator (Source).
  • Available weapons: bolt pistol, bolter , heavy bolter, plasma pistol, plasma gun, plasma cannon, meltagun, stormbolter, rocket launcher, chainsword, power sword/axe/fist, lightning claw, storm shield, thunder hammer (Source 1, Source 2, Source 3, Source 4). The Lightning Claw (Source[1]), Missile Launcher and Thunder Hammer are not available for launch since Dual-Wielding and Two-Handed Melee Weapons (Source 30th Q&A, Question 10) are post launch, Missile Weapons are post launch for Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines. The Multi-Melta, Power Fist and Power Maul have all been added to the game.
