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:

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.
