With today's revelation of the Eldar faction in Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade, we wanted to find out more. We caught up with several members of the WH40k team to talk Eldar. See what they had to say before heading to the comments to leave your impressions.
MMORPG.com: When you decided to make Eldar part of the Eternal Crusade factions, what were your first impressions?
David Ghozland: “The Eldar will be challenging, but they’re so iconic that we simply HAVE to have them in the game. They're also our only launch-race that gives us the opportunity to add women warriors!”
Brent Ellison: “They’re a challenge for us because they’re the aliens who don’t fit in the same sort of structures as the other factions. Their characters are extremely specialized, and they’re effective at short or long ranges, not so much medium and their primary weapon, the shuriken catapult, is nothing like the bullet, slug, or rocket-based projectile weapons we’re used to.
We’re thrilled to have them, but we want to be sure that we do them right."
