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.

1 comment by ChromeAngel on Jan 25th, 2014

Exterminatus Beta 7.61 establishes a new baseline for long term gameplay. Looking forward to meeting you all on the battlefields of the 41st millennium.


New Features in 7.61

  • Tarantula (automated turret) to defend the marine objectives.
  • Added a new map entity type ex_turret_point to the FGD for placing and facing turrets.  Objectives will spawn a  turret at the nearest ex_turret_point when marines capture it.
  • Dynamic marine crosshair.  Rather than pulsing all the time, the new, sharper crosshair only "lights up" when it's over a target.
  • Only showing the target objective on the HUD.  You can use the console variable ex_show_obj to change this. 0 = No Objectives, 1 = All Objectives, 2 = Just the target objective.
  • Added the players exact health and map loading screen to the Tactical Overview.
  • Now showing your bound USE key when aiming at an ammo shrine.
  • New statue prop in the 40k style used on Tarsis Ultra.

Beta 7.61 isn't really about new features though there has been much more focus on improving the mod. Literally dozens of tweaks, bug fixes and balance changes have been made to deliver a more fun and balanced game then ever before. You can find a round up of all the changes since the last Beta in this Change Log .


Since the last Beta i've also released a dozen skin packs to allow you to play EX with many of the major space marine chapters.  You can download the skin packs and find instructions for installing them on the Downloads page.

Finding Players
We're still scheduling regular EX games through the Steam Community Group, now including regular games in in US time-zones.  You can also join in the discussion on the future direction of EX.

It must be a problem with the Source SDK at your end, it works fine here.

Out of curiosity are you using the Alpha or Beta build?

Very odd. I thought I saw you try and connect about the time we started testing alpha 7.54 tonight.

Please can you check for .MDMP files in your "Source SDK Base 2007" folder. Source may have recorded some information from your crash that could help me find out what the problem is. If you have any MDMP files please zip them up and email them to me at leader@40ksource.com

If you're looking for co-op 40k on the Source engine you might want to give the Deathwatch mod for Left 4 Dead a try.

I've not had much success with adding bots in Source.

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…
