Bought this today also
My referral code is EC-9RYXTYTVJTDM6
I think unlike the Dawn of War games they are sticking pretty close to to the lore instead of making their own chapter to write back story for.
As i understand it most of the novels are cannon. The Space Wolves Trilogy (i think there are two Space Wolves trilogies) and the Eisenhorn Trilogy are pretty good. And i think both can be bought in omnibus form.
As i understand the lore for this game (at least for the Space Marines faction), you wont be deploying with your chapter. I think you will be a member of an Honour Guard (either going to or coming from Honour Guard duties, not sure) as are all the other players, who find themselves in a conflict where they are the only ones available to deal with the situation. This is all unconfirmed dredgings from my memory and may be entirely untrue.
Do we even have a recruitment thread yet? May pay to look at this.
I don't believe so, not yet.
I imagine a lot of TOGers will be getting into this though.
I have been reading one of the novels though, the first of the Horus Heresy series; Horus Rising.
I'm 20% in and it's awesome.
Got my character slots full now with 3 chaos and 1 ork. Tchar is Iron warriors, TzeentchChaos is Word Bearers, ChaosTzeentch is Night Lords, and GrmGrot is Deathskulls.
It seems that soon the alpha will be upon us; they have stated summer (Northern Hemisphere of Terra) 2015. July-August 2015
Been keeping a close eye on the development and am pretty excited for this.
What race are TOG planning on going?
As have I.
TOG should be open to all Factions, with interests of trying for a division in this game all factions will be welcome. Sub-forums can be made for faction base stories, competitions, and group team play. I feel if TOG focuses on a single faction you will drive players away.
My main will be Eldar, but I have one character of each race.
I will mainly be Chaos, hence the forum name. I do have one Ork slot - but whether I play it or not is a different story.
I have one of each race too.
Really looking forward to this, it's going to be good fun.
Will bring back memories of the Planetside 2 days.
I was a sucker and bought the game on Founder release day, missed the part where it was in pre-alpha I was so hyped for it. Ahh well, all the time has let me slowly upgrade my Founder's pack. Can't wait to smell the burning promethium and hear the krak's going off like a demonic choir. Races? There is only Chaos :mrgreen:
Been following along on this thread and watching the dev vids they put out every now and then, and still pretty excited! I think my biggest issue is going to be choosing which race to play! Used to play Space Marines and Eldar back in my tabletop days, but loved Greenskins in Bloodbowl and Warhammer Online... so am going to struggle choosing one! At least I know I don't have to worry about Chaos, never really got into them lol.
Have they given more specific info recently on the first alpha wave? I haven't checked anything for a few weeks, guess I should stop being lazy and go have a looksee
For those interested this is the TOG recruitment post in the EC40K forum
Just a friendly reminder about EC40K.
When you get your early access call up you will need to sign an NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) which will mean there can be no discussions, pictures, or videos put up on the TOG forums about the game.
On Monday September 14th, the people that have Captain’s packs or higher in terms of RTP and were the first to buy, will start to enter the Closed Alpha. We will start slowly with admission in the 100s, with the eventual goal of getting all Captain’s pack and higher in by October.
If you want to get in as part of the Captain’s wave, you can still secure your spot in it by buying, or upgrading, to a Captain’s pack before we start the Sergeants’ wave. I know; shameless plug but more Founders means more war. In the grim darkness of the far future, there can be only more war.
Woohoo!! Gettin close now!
I know there will be an NDA, but I imagine we can say something like, WOOOHOOO I'm in!! In your face, American Idol!...right?
Yes you can put in this thread that you have an invite - state you have signed the NDA - and can put IGN.
This definitely looks interesting.
For all those interested an Open steam group has been made for all EC40K gamers and 40K fans to join globally to enjoy the game and to discuss any thing they feel is relevant to 40K
