Exterminatus : Destruction of all life on a world by the Imperium of man.

Setting
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 and Tyranid races 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.

Status
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 really worthy of news on ModDB, but are detailed at 40ksource.com.

Gameplay
Each map sees teams of Marine and Tyranid 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.

Features

  • Two teams, with their own distinct appearance and game play styles
  • Three tiers of player classes, achieve success to unlock superior classes
  • Twelve playable classes, each with their own unique sounds, weapons and abilities
  • Mission and Objective based game play, with progressive spawn waves

Getting Together
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 8.61 features a new Chaos Space Marine (CSM) team, which is a major change in direction for EX. Also featured in this Alpha a new level ex_streets by WhitelightningTwister.


Install the Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer

  • Navigate to the "Tools" section on your Steam games "Library"
  • Install the "Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer"
  • Run the Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer at least once.
  • You can exit once the menu has finished loading.


Install the latest Exterminatus Alpha

  • If you already have a copy of the EX alpha, delete it.
  • Run the alpha installer and follow it's instructions.
  • Restart Steam. You should now see both the Exterminatus Alpha listed in your library.


Features

  • New IMP VS NID map ex_streets by WhitelightningTwister.
  • New stained glass window textures and Chaos capture sound by DontAsk4470.
  • New FGD file for authoring IMP VS CSM maps and a CSM test map called tech_adpet_lab_861.
  • Added a chaos option to the team selection menu, chaos class selection and chaos team HUD.
  • Placeholders for the CSM player classes..


Chaos Space Marine Classes

  • Renegade (basic tactical class)
  • Aspiring Champion (chaos veteran, Champ for short)
  • Raptor (fast assault class)
  • Havoc (heavy weapon class)
  • Chaos Terminator (with custom player model!)
  • Chaos Dreadnaught (we might make this a Hellbrute at some point)


DISCLAIMER
The CSM player and weapon models, graphics, sound and weapons are all place holders for the assets I plan to add to the mod before Beta 9.

Many of the mod's systems have had to be changed to support the CSM team, some of them may have been missed, some of them may have been broken, this is why we test.

Even with these changes EX only supports 2 options for maps IMP VS CSM and IMP VS NID, other combinations have not been coded for.

Future
Wikkyd's space marine scout player model is nearly ready for texturing. I hope we'll be able to get him in-game for the summer.

We have a whole bunch of Chaos marines that need custom assets. If like Wikkyd, DontAsk and WhitelightningTwister you would like to contribute content or help with EX please email me leader@40ksource.com .

The Greenlight plan is kind of stalled. I have contacted GW, but only received automated responses to my emails. Without a definitive yay or nay it leaves me in a quandary on how to proceed. It looks like Steam Direct still isn't a thing, but Greenlight might be going away before we can complete the process. My "plan B" was to investigate ModDB's Desura service, but apparently that has been sold off and is currently offline. Plan "C" is a homebrew self-updater for EX, but that's still pretty sketchy at the moment.

EX currently has no indication of sprint/leap stamina in the HUD, it could be implemented as a disappearing bar in the bottom center of the screen like in Wilson Chronicles Moddb.com

How do I complete the tutorial's shooting range part and proceed to the next one?
I hit several targets, but the objective marker stays where it is, I tried to hit it with weapons but with no effect

Backtrack to the room with the tarantula, there is another door that will let you spend your firing range points on a different class.

I bet when it hits greenlight on the Steam Store. It's going to get a lot of popularity...for a while because Multiplayer only is kind of boring. Warhammer 40k fans may get bored quickly without Bots to fight when servers are not occupied and even if Bots are added, people would like a story. It can be like short missions against Tyranid bots or a Campaign which would be way too much work. Basically what I am saying is that...Other than multiplayer, there should be some Bots, short missions, something like that? Do you know what I mean? I'm Dr. Kaiser on steam because I don't trust my Account on other pages.

Your Steam needs to be online for those to work.

Decent mod, but an unhelpful community who only open their mouths to troll and talk shit like it's a competitive shooter. Makes MOBAs and Youtube comment sections look civil. Avoid. I simply asked how to get ammo for the Termies stormbolter and was told "to quit acting like it's CoD", whatever that was supposed to mean. I proceeded to ask again whether I was supposed to just let myself die or if there was an ammo point or something, and didn't get an answer. Then a match later, as I was lost on…
