Looks likes the Dev’s at Whitebox Interactive have snuck in two new Developer Streams full of the latest info on Dark Nexus Arena. Here is #23:

And here is the link for #24 – it’s a little slow at first but they go over the UI and some of the other features. If you want to skip ahead to gameplay the action starts around the 26 minute mark:


Warhammer 40,000  Dark Nexus Arena Basics

The merciless MOBA is set in the dark universe of Warhammer 40,000. Players take control of veteran warriors from the iconic Space Marines, Orks, and Tau armies in a bloody four versus four conflict. The entire range of Warhammer 40,000 races are planned for future release, including the Sisters of Battle, Dark Eldar, Eldar, and Chaos Space Marines armies.


In addition to the launch of closed alpha, Whitebox will host regularly scheduled live-streams via Twitch weekly on Tuesdays at 1PM PST, starting Tuesday, May 12th. Players should also keep their eyes on the official Dark Nexus Arena Tumblr to learn more from the developers, who will be regularly posting behind the scenes insight.


Those interested in early access can simply head to the Dark Nexus Arena store to check out the various Limited Edition Game Bundles available, starting at $25.

    It’s just so done…. and i can’t help but feel like it’ll be riddled with micro-transactions.

    Why Tau? Im not a Chaos Bunny and I still think Chaos anything are a shoo in for this game concept. Plus its arena style game play and you do not have Lelith in your launch?

  • Crablezworth

    just… no

  • DeadlyYellow

    A few years past the MOBA hayday isn’t it? Good luck to them.

  • Oh yeaaah there was something Dota-y coming for 40k.
    Not sure how it will hold up between Dota2, LoL and Heroes.

  • Shiwan8

    I’m trying to see the appeal, I mean, the idea is tasty. I just can’t. To me this just seems boring.

  • Necro Alienerd

    That Meganob model is just… I don’t know, but a 10 year old DoW model is better than it.

  • They need a Battlefield 40k and They’ll make some monies 😀

  • SupraGenius

    If you want to make this game stand out, make each team made of only a specific race, and make them asymmetrical. IE Dark Eldar teams rely on a lot of poison and illusions with a grotesques tanks. A Khorne team that excels in close range combat, with maybe a bloodthirster using its whip for medium range damage and stuns so a berzerker can close range, etc.If you just try to put new skins on LoL, you’re gonna fail.
