If there is a multiplayer for this game, what races would you like to see?

Title says it all. What race would you want to play as?

Squats

No, seriously, for me chaos space marines would be good, but, if we get SM's heres hoping for some chaos armour aswell.

Failing that eldar or dark eldar would be good.

I guess it depends what the multiplayer is like, for example, if it offers a class system that could result in some pretty interesting games based on the units available in the 40kverse, however if its just a run and gun game, then it will probably play alot like gears with two similar looking/playing teams, just with no cover system.

THQ are being quite tight lipped with the info at the mo

Imperial Guard just wouldn't work and orks unless they dumbed down the Space Marines like in the other games. Right now I'd be joyous if they went through with this game no matter how it turns out.

MP Is confirmed... Marines vs Chaos Marines 8v8 I don't know what mode there might be though, or if there is a horde mode. Pre-ordering from certain sites also gets you skins like the Space Wolves and the World Bearers.

Just watch the vids on,and go through the info on the space marines site.---->HERE Also check out the steam info.
On a side note I'm almost certain the steam achievements will be the same as the 360's.

There's another more precise article which I'll look for, and post when I find it.

Scroll down to features & it'll say "Form your own Space Marine squad or Chaos Space Marine warband and face off in 8 vs 8 online matches. Gain experience and unlock new weapons and armour to customize the Devastator, Assault, and Tactical Marine classes."

EDIT: I hope they don't make some BS achievement like getting max rank/level in multiplayer with a ridiculous demand for exp like Gears 2.

I hope they do, because otherwise it would be easier to get a 1000G. If the multiplayer is good I want an excuse to stay around a while, if it isn't then I don't earn every single achievement in the game. No big deal...

Everyone will hate me for saying this because I'm posting on an achievement website, where nearly everyone wants a quick 1000G and doesn't care about things such as fun.

Battletick speaks of the truth, multiplayer should be a challenging yet fun for achievements. Sure, it shouldn't be a grind-fest, but not to gain achievements so easily.

I've already voted but this seems like a waste in some instances. It's like starting a "If there is a multiplayer for HALO X, What race would you like to see?".

1st it already had been confirmed multiplayer.

and

2nd, to keep the "balance" in any MP shooter you have to have 2 equal teams. IE you wouldnt play a HALO game IF 1 person played as Master Chief vs 7 Elites?

I'm all for expanding multiplayer options but you have to keep in mind programing and other factor to running a match

Putting in some massive flurry of units would be something for a mode like "The Last Stand" in Dawn of War 2.

While a whole crazy load of units would be neat in a MP, it would be hell to balance and not worth compromising the competitive fairness of the MP.

Relic has the right idea right now. 3 unique customizeable classes is a great start.

Why not a Horde mode or something simular. A squad of 5 marines vs wave upom wave of progressively increasing number of ORCs or others

Hopefully they will have some of the other races as DLC later on.

Don't hold your breath. The great part about Chaos vs Loyalists is that they are equal in every way, so the game balance is easy to maintain. Adding in another race would be very complicated and I would wager almost impossible to do with DLC. Maybe in a sequel, but not in a DLC.

Well... Uh... Perhaps if the game sells well, did Dawn of War 2 cost as much as a 360 title? I bought the Gold edition which was on sale.

Edit: And according to my brother and Lexarcanum (the Wiki page), the Sisters of Battle are part of the Inquisition's Ordo Heriticus. Sorry.

Haha. They might add sisters... but thats not a new race. That's just shorter marines in funny looking power armor. They definitely won't add new races. If they did, it would only be for the pc version and it might just end up being people with mods that turn one side or another into a different race. But who needs new races if the game ends up being as amazing as the demo was?!

If they introduce different game modes, I could see some new races being available. But, honestly, I would not want to be a weak Tau hoping to stay at range and easily failing, or a non-augmented human, even a sister in power armor (Sisters and Guardsmen are the same stat-wise, little point adding them) against marines of either sort.

I could see some sort of swarm survival game against players on one side as 'nids who expect to die but earn points to get higher classes while the other side tries not to die.

Beyond that, discussion of different races in MM is like talking about different race options in other big MM series, like gears of war and Halo. Plenty of possibilities and ways to possibly use them, but people enjoyed the games just fine with the options available. Hopefully this will be no different.

Relic is playing it safe considering this is the Warhammer's debut on the console market as a AAA game.

Warhammer has a lot to take in, Space Marines vs Chaos Space Marines and Orks is the ideal start.

This is THQ's chance to own part of the shooter market, you better believe that they're going to want to establish a beach head in the market with some tried and true SMs vs CSMs.

Lets talk about fighting other races like Eldar in a future campaign before we talk about playing them in a balanced MP.
