I’ve played 40k on and off since Rogue Trader in my early years of High School. Yes that makes me old. With the cancellation of THQ’s Dark Millenium, no official word on Space Marine 2 (it’s gone dammit!) and Dawn of War 3 somewhere else thats neither confirmed or not confirmed…. This will have to do. It’s touted as an MMO, which it is, and will play in the same vein as Planetside 2, being third person with large open battlefields and lots of things to do.

There will be a PVP focus, with PVE elements in the form of small instances (?? I think) and PVE bits inside the open world within faction territory to drive game story. I’ve brought in like I normally do for F2p and been able to reserve some name for my Marines.

So there is a lot of love for a mech that has a lot of BAD going on for it. The Urbanmech is the proverbial pariah of the Mechwarrior Universe, its a complete piece of junk, with ridiculous a loadout check it out here under UM-R60

Anyway PGI teased it as an April fools joke last year, and to be honest a lot of people would have actually payed for it just to troll. I know I would have. I want to learn Blender to play round with Star Citizen content creation and wanted something roughly symmetrical and simple to build. So Urbie it is (I built a coffee cup earlier). Hopefully he will be walking and smoking aces by the time the clan C-bill roll out is done in December. Oh with a mustache, cigar and top hat too.
