Behaviour is back with another production update – It’s Swooping Hawks time!
via Eternal Crusade
Mathieu Lavoie, Katie Fleming, and Maxime Goulet recently gave a music update, and later on Nathan Richardsson and Brent Ellison joined to finish the Production Update with: beard update, Swooping Hawk, Space Marine weapon mods & bases, Apothecary Narthecium variety, and Where’s My Map? Several forum/chat questions were answered as well as general updates on Eternal Crusade.
It’s still all Early Access – footage and everything else is still subject to change!
First off – the music update is really great to hear! I can’t wait to hear those song in battle they are perfect to play in the background. The Tyranid one was both equal parts epic and terrifying which will add the the atmosphere when you’re trying to clear them out of a complex!
The weapon mods are coming – there was a lot of placeholder art but they are working on it and have come a long way. The Swooping Hawk seems like a really nice addition to the Eldar. In conjunction with their base movement speed increase as Eldar, they also have a neat glide mechanic. They move fairly gracefully and can even hover for a short time. This does leave them vulnerable and exposed in the air so you’ve got to be smart with their jumping. However, if you can catch an opponent unaware, the Hawks’ trademark mid-air grenade/bombing run can be devastating!
Not everything is finalized and the VFX still need some work for the weapon mods but everything is coming along nicely!
If you like what you see and want to jump in NOW you can join their early access program – just remember it’s not done yet but they are working on it and constantly improving!
Don’t get caught floating or it will by like dove season…
