Warhammer 40,000: Dark Nexus Arena
|Genre||Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA)|
Dark Nexus Arena was a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) video game, that was produced by independent game developer Whitebox Interactive for the PC. Its game play was combined with the twin-stick shooter genre and the game's players would be able to engage in four-versus-four team deathmatch with various warriors from the Warhammer 40,000 universe. These included Terminators, Apothecaries, Scouts, Retributors, Meganobs, Stormboys, Khorne Berzerkers, Fire Warriors, Ethereals and Lychguards. In Dark Nexus' story line, these warriors had been captured by the Drukhari and were now forced to fight for their lives, within various Wych Cult arenas on Commorragh.
The game began being worked on in 2012 and was launched on Steam's Early Access Games in 2015. A launch date in 2016 was planned, but due to lack of players, the developer announced it was cancelling Dark Nexus instead. The game's servers were permanently shut down on March 12, 2016.
