Posted Fri, Jul 15, 2011 by Martuk

Vigil Games is reportedly getting some backup from Warhammer 40k: Space Marine developer Relic Entertainment for the development of their MMORPG, Warhammer 40k: Dark Millennium Online. Eurogamer reports that collaboration between the two began some time back with Vigil’s interest in the Space Marine combat mechanics and that once that game is complete, Relic team may lend Vigil a hand with completing Dark Millennium.

While there is no unifying or crossover narrative between the two games, both developers are collaborating to keep a consistency of the core combat mechanics.

"In terms of the some of the core mechanics, they were looking at our combat system quite carefully at one point to see if they could try and make it – not the same – but just have some level of consistency. That's definitely been a consideration."
