This download is a self extracting installer including all you need to host and play Exterminatus - Rival Species 2. Two Species: Humans and Tyranids...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Since spring of 2014 I have been working on migration of Exterminatus to the 2013 version of the Source SDK. Players should find this version is more stable, has shorter loading times and a high frame rate than the previous Beta which uses the 2007 Source SDK.
Mitch has set up a new dedicated server in Australia ( [AU] Mitch's Exterminatus Server) with encouragement from Ceadda. The new server should be listed in the in-game server browser, but you can connect direct at 184.108.40.206:27015
Technically this version is actually 8.02, it took more alpha versions to get to this state than I had expected when I started the migration at 7.9.
I have several more sound effects from DontAsk that can be included in EX, but I don't think they would be worth holding up the Beta release any longer. I expect i'll get around to including them in an alpha patch over the course of the (northern hemisphere) summer.

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…
