New Warhammer 40K Project for PS3 and 360
THQ Studio Australia to develop a "brutal, intimate melee combat game"?
by Cam Shea, IGN AU

Australia, August 27, 2008 - An interesting job listing went up on Tsumea, the well-known site for Australian and New Zealand game developers, yesterday, advertising a number of positions for a new game based on the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

The game is to be developed by Brisbane-based THQ Studio Australia and the listing simply states that the company is "seeking videogame development talent across all disciplines to work on an action game for Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 based on the popular Warhammer 40,000 universe from Games Workshop."

"We want the most talented, most enthusiastic and motivated developers to join us," it goes on to say, "and help push Brisbane and THQ Studio Australia to the forefront of Australian development." The company is looking for a Lead Artist, Lead Animator, Environment Artist, Animator, Senior Designer, Audio Designer, Engine programmer, Game Programmer and QA Lead.

While the listing itself gives no details as to the type of game it may be, THQ Studio Australia's website states that: "We are currently looking for people to work on a next-gen brutal, intimate melee combat game using a world-class brand".

Imagine a cross between Warhammer 40,000 and Gears of War...I have ever since I laid peepers on GoW.

As long as it's not a blatant rip-off or anything like the abortive mess of bland that was Fire Warrior, this should be awesome.

Will watch progress eagerly.

Yeah i don't know if and FPS, if this is the case, could ever capture the epic nature of 40K. Most if not all attempts mostly fail.

You know, with the power of the PS3, RTS could be a good thing and certainly a vantage point for SONY as they are releasing a game called M.A.G and it has a 256 player online matches.

They could really make RTS games better on the PS3, just my opinion.

Can you not say stupid shit like this? You make me feel like an idiot for being a PS3 owner.

OP: Not sold. Space Hulk was awesome. Everything else has been shit.

Melee-combat focussed 40k game can only be good if you can choose the role of a Lictor, Striking Scorpion or some other melee-focussed class.

Personally, I'd like to see a Necromunda (still in 40k universe) game made with plenty of melee. Best of both worlds - tactical combat with good mix of ranged and melee options.

Hmm, a mate of mine got a job there recently working on the 40K series for PC. I might pick his brain to see if he's heard any details about this one.

This looks quite nice, especially considering how early it is, only first build. Lets just hope it doesnt become another Fire Warrior
