The devs explain that the free version of Eternal Crusade lets players lark about with all four factions and four of the five classes, excluding only the Air Assault.
Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade [official site] did not arrive as the PlanetSide-y peristent open-world war MMO once envisioned but, if you are still curious about the game it actually is, you might fancy the free version that’s now live.
If you’ve been Crusading Eternally, reader dear, would you recommend folks give this free version a crack?
And while the original plan was to only let free players be cannon fodder for the Ork waaagh! machine, this here version offers all factions and most classes.
