About Exterminatus

Two teams/species featured in the first version of EX are the Imperium of Man (represented by tactical marines of Ultramarines chapter of the Adeptus Astartes) and Tyranid Hive Mind (represendted by creatures of Hive Fleet Behemoth).

Each map plays through a series of objectives, capturing the final objective delivers victory to your team. Players that do well in combat or by capturing objectives are rewarded with the option to play better classes. Each team has five playable classes, each with their own weapons and play style.


More information about the gameplay of EX can be found in the player manual we are writing. If you have any questions please feel free to post them on the EX forum.
