Due to an unanswered plea for modding help, BF40K has now merged with UT40K.
Battlefield 40k's Mission
Is to transform the Tabletop game of Games Workshops Warhammer 40,000 into an FPS for the Battlefield 2142 Engine.
We will use the new features of BF2142 to add what we could not do previously in BF1942 and BF2 version of the mod. Walkers, Cloaking and the use of AI controlled support weapons (Tau Drones, Imperial Servo Skulls etc.)
Statics containing Advertising will not feature in maps for this mod for legal reasons set out by Games Workshop's Legal document concerning mods based upon their franchise
The purpose of our mod project is to put six races in game.
The aim for first release is focusing on Imperial Guard Cadians vs Tau Campaign (details on the campaign will be unveiled near release of the first alpha).
The Six Races
Space Marines Adeptus Astartes, Chapter: Blood Angels
Space Marines are genetically enhanced superhumans that form the elite forces of the imperium of man. They are one of the most loyal forces to the Emperor.
The Blood Angels were formed by the Primarch Sanguinius, their genes derive from him. During the Horus Heresy Their founder died at the hands of the traitor Horus. Ever since this incident the chapter has not been quite the same. Their geneseed now contains the Black Rage. At times The Blood Angels will lose control to the curse and annihilate all the enemy tearing them limb from limb without mercy.
Imperial Guard : Cadian Shock Troopers
The Imperial Guard are the largest military force that the Imperium of man holds at their disposal. They are tasked with defending the many planets under the emperors rule.
The Cadian shock troopers defend the most crucial planets that are near to the eye of terror which the forces of chaos pour through when black crusades are undertaken.
The ancient and sophisticated alien race. Once they had a galactic empire, Then came the fall and it crumbled along with their homeworlds. Now they Fight for survival few in number living and travelling within gigantic ships known as Craftworlds.
The new emerging rapidly evolving alien race that stand to conquer the universe held in their empire for the greater good.
Greenskinned barbarians who only live for conflict, be it against other races or amongst each other.
Chaos Space Marines
The Space Marine chapters once loyal to the Emperor turned into traitors under the manipulative and corrupt powers of chaos.
A bloody civil war was fought known as the horus heresy that almost shattered the Imperium empire of man. Chaos eventually lost with a high cost to both sides.
After the horus heresy which they lost they fled to the eye of terror, a demonic portal within lies the controlled dimentional realms of the 4 Chaos gods Khorne: God of Blood , Slaanesh: God of Pleasure, Tzeentch: God of Change and Nurgle: God of Plague.
Chaos plot to bring down the Emperor and the Galaxy.
Battlefield 40k will accurately model the races, the technology and the equipment of future warfare in the 40,000 universe. Featuring wars in distant galaxies and in a host of difficult, unforgiving terrain. Humankind has to struggle for it's very existence in a universe of total war.
Battlefield 40k will supplement the depiction of brutal future warfare with a host of highly detailed depiction of distant worlds and civilizations. Never before has the future of warfare looked so clear.
