This mod is set in Games Workshop's, great Warhammer 40,000 ( 40k ) universe, as seen in Dawn of War and our previous mod WH40K : Rival Species.
The 40k universe is set in the year 40,000 by which time mankind has colonized millions of worlds thought the galaxy by interstellar warp travel. Humanity is ruled by a vast, uncaring, priesthood/bureaucracy on Earth in the name of an all powerful God/Emperor. A galaxy of insidious alien races have threatened and fought the Imperium since its earliest days in innumerable wars and battles.
Developers of this mod have deliberately chosen to include only the Imperium, Tyranid and Chaos factions out of the many that exist in the 40k universe in order to focus on the quality and polished that the mod would not have otherwise. Please do not ask about the other 40k races.
Exterminatus is feature complete and the game is fully playable. A public Beta is available for anyone that wants to try it. New Beta versions will be announced here, but there are also fortnightly public Alpha builds which being incomplete, unbalanced and often unstable aren't generally worthy of news on ModDB, but are detailed at 40ksource.com.
Each map sees teams of players competing in a series of mission objectives, culminating in a battle to decide the fate of the planet. This mod is purely multi-player, there is no co-op mode or player bots available.
Players that do well for their team are rewarded with the option to use more powerful player classes including special and heavy weapons marines, terminators, the tank like Carnifex and terrifying Lictor.
Regular scheduled games are being hosted on a number of dedicated servers several times each week usually mid-week and weekends at between 7 and 8PM GMT. Please check our steam community page for upcoming scheduled games and servers addresses.
Alpha 8.70 rolls up all the changes from the last 10 alpha tests, including all the Chaos player classes and two Chaos maps. Version 8.70 adds more chaos props, new kill icons, further improves ex_bunker and fixes bugs related to objective markers and bullet holes.
After 10 alpha versions it's good to clear the decks and put out a fresh install, just to make sure everyone is playing with 100% the same content and has not missed a patch. That is why there is no patch for this version, just full installs. This version is intended to install to the sourcemods/ex folder where Beta versions are normally installed to, rather then sourcemods/ex_alpha as is usual with alphas.

This is the first full install of EX to feature all the Chaos classes. All the classes have bespoke player model in this version. There is more we can and do want to do with the chaos player models, consider these to be work in progress.
Even with the chaos player models done, they are still using identical weapons to the loyalist space marines. Long time contributor Clay_More (who you may know as the creator of the biovore), has gone a long way to building an arsenal of chaos weapon models. However all those weapons still need, rigging texturing, scripting and coding into the mod.
Since the last alpha version (8.69) was released the following changes have been made to Exterminatus:
With all the classes and player models in Chaos may look complete, but adding chaos weaponry and further refining the chaos player models are planned to be the focus of the next set of EX alphas. The space marine scout class has not been forgotten about, it's still lacking a critical asset and I (ChromeAngel) have more enthusiasm for Chaos. I will get around to working on the scout eventually.
WhiteLighningTwister, who has contributed a number of custom, experimental new maps since Beta 8.60 (ex_garage, ex_streets, ex_gardens) has more ideas to try out, I hope some will catch on as well as the his chaos favourite, ex_bunker. DontAsk4470 continues to work on sound effects and improving his Source map making skills.
I have been approached by a coder offering to get EX running on Linux. I am somewhat cautious about sharing the EX Source code i've been building up for the last decade. It would certainly make it cheaper to host dedicated servers if EX ran on Linux. Is there any appetite in the EX community for a Linux version?
