Being the 40k nerd I am, I've been watching this game closely. I'm not sure who might've pointed it out to me originally when we were discussing other 40k games that were on the horizon but I thank them for it.
One of, if not my absolute favorite facet of 40k is the space ships and battles and the lore with it. The massive ships, several kilometers in length fielding huge guns and thousands to tens of thousands of crew, are just plain awesome. The combat is (obviously) reminscent of the age of sail, where huge broadsides of guns were required to decimate your opponents.
Anyway, I digress... for me... it's finally time to buy the early access on steam... just take a looksee here below. The video is a good run down of the depth of the ships and upgrades you can earn and such... and then an absolutely AMAZING multiplayer game.
The game's visuals looks absolutely stunning. To take ships that big and make it look that detailed and large is not a small task. I'll be grabbing this within the next day or so and reporting in on what it's like.
