I thought 40k would make a better FPS than MMORPG anyway. Though a 40k Planetside-type MMOFPS would rock.

I hope this isn't a licenced property, but something original that these guys are developing.

These guys weren't really on my radar until recently; I started playing Darksiders a little while ago and have been really impressed with the world, atmosphere and characters. This is a very creative bunch of people! I'm excited for Darksiders 2, would love to see what they could bring to the FPS space...

Best of luck Vigil, keep up the good work!

Ideally I wanted an action based MMO, then after the cancellation i was hoping for a co-op ARPG. FPS just seems so generic and bland. I hope this isn't for WH40k.

Love this company though, really dig Darksiders.

Darksiders was a very fun game. My only two complaints with it are that the difficulty wasn't consistent and the game worlds were too small. I would love a more open world and I hope Death brings me there in part 2.
