As the discussion of the release was bound up in the thread on the last game, I figured to give its own topic
New Trailer is out and ... wait how many factions do I count?
- The Imperial Navy
- The Adeptus Mechanicus
- The Adeptus Astares (prior to some legaleze known as Space Marines)
- Fallen Astares (the artists fomerly known as Chaos Space Marines)
- Drukahri (fomerly known as Dark Eldar)
- Aeldari Corsairs
It is no in-engine footage but actually stuff to talk about:
Most notably the visual upgrade the Tyranids seem to be getting, which like the T'au DLC for the first game will be taking its clues from the designs made by Forgeworld instead of the original models for the faction.
This has me excited, because despite all its flaws (e.g. omniscient AI) and rough balancing across its lifetime (e.g. 12k Eldar/Aeldari Pulsars), the first game was fun and played "too much" of the multiplayer (submarine tactics FTW).
... oh, and it has been delayed into 2019...
