[Game website] Warhammer 40,000: Dark Nexus Arena, the first MOBA to explore the rich Warhammer 40,000 universe, will be entering the much anticipated closed alpha phase on May 8, 2015. Developed by Whitebox Interactive, the Vancouver-based indy game company brings Games Workshop’s beloved license to life through a truly unique PC experience set to launch in 2016.
To date, the only way to experience Dark Nexus Arena has been at gaming conferences, including PAX East and Insomnia Gaming Festival, but even those few who have had their first taste of the game will be blown away by the latest build on Unity 5, which incorporates the enthusiastic feedback that Whitebox has received while on the road and through community engagement in its forums.
The merciless MOBA is set in the dark universe of Warhammer 40,000. Players take control of veteran warriors from the iconic Space Marines, Orks, and Tau armies in a bloody four versus four conflict. The entire range of Warhammer 40,000 races are planned for future release, including the Sisters of Battle, Dark Eldar, Eldar, and Chaos Space Marines armies.
In addition, Whitebox will host regular live-streams via Twitch on Tuesdays at 1PM PST, starting Tuesday, May 12th. Players should also keep their eyes on the official Dark Nexus Arena Tumblr to learn more from the developers. Those interested in early access can simply head to the Dark Nexus Arena store to check out the various Limited Edition Game Bundles available, starting at $25.
