Eager to play this! I am HUGE W40k Fan (for crying out loud, i even had a Imperial flag tailored for me as a gift on my last school year), been a fan ever since i was pretty young!

We also have been too long without a proper TB W40k game!

Hope that you can go full Imperial Guard, those oversized space marines wont take the glory of the common men and women warriors of the imperium!

Finally! I can not wait to liberate armageddon and play the multiplayer! Glorious! I have two questions:
1. How long does the beta test take? One month? 2 weeks?
2. How many people are going to participate in the beta test?
Thanks in advance for replys :)

It will definitely last for a good month.

The test game also will expand and unlock more and more every new build.

Example given: MP may still be disabled during the first test or we will miss some graphics and use some placeholders in certain parts, as we are constantly polishing and working on the game.

And we do this in phases, so the first test round we select, at random, a small group of testers and every new build we add more and more.

So when we get closer to release we will have added almost everybody.

If you are not selected on day one, don`t despair...

I'd love to play a game like this. I have Epic models and I just found an old copy of Final Liberation. I couldn't bring myself to throw it away. :D

Cheers,

Hold your horses, on average we announce Beta recruitment more or less two weeks prior to the start of actual Beta testing...

Nice one, hopefully as good as the old "Epic40k: Final Liberation"! That would be fun. The last few W40k-games weren't that good...
