Behaviour Interactive -- with a "u," because they're Canadian -- today announced 19 classes for the four races of their upcoming open-world Warhammer 40K: Eternal Crusade action MMORPG.

While the game as a whole won't be free-to-play, there will be a F2P option, limiting players to the Ork faction. That sounds a little restrictive, and we're not sure how it'll work in terms of factional numbers balance, but we're sure they've got a plan, right? Right?

Anyway, here are the classes:

Space Marines
Tactical Marine
Devastator
Assault Marine
Apothecary

Orks
Shoota
‘Eavy/Loota
Stormboy
Painboy

Chaos Space Marines
Chaos Space Marine
Havoc
Raptor
Aspiring Sorcerer

Eldar
Dire Avenger
Fire Dragon
Dark Reaper
Swooping Hawk
Howling Banshee
Striking Scorpion
Warlock

If you're wondering why the Eldar have more classes than the other races, Lead Designer Brett Ellison explains it as the Eldar having very specific roles as "a unique flavor of their Eldar Aspects," while the other races can more easily customize their roles on the fly.

It all adds up to look like a pretty interesting experience, and we're eager to see how it all works out, especially the free-to-play aspects. You can learn more about the game, which is due to be released in 2015, or sign up for beta here.

So the game is btp, it currently states that you can be a ftp ork but progression will be slower than if you btp and play ork.

What is sad to me is on the website it says 'war is coming end of 2015', that's too long for a hype train and is not a good thing
