Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch Now Crusading On PC

In the world of Warhammer 40,000, the Deathwatch are some of the roughest, toughest, God Emperor-loving-est Space Marines around, a special arm brought together from all Chapters with the sole mission of murdering the heck out of a whole load of aliens. They don’t play nicely with others, those Spoice Murines.

In the world of video games, Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch [official site] is a turn-based tactics ’em up about building, equipping, and leading a Kill-team on missions to wipe out those dang xenos. Made by Warhammer Quest folks Rodeo, it’s out today.

In that old squad-based tactical way, Deathwatch will have you clearing out combat zones, carefully positioning troops and planning ahead, then trying to hold your cool when bad things happen. 4-metre bad things bristling with spikes and organic armour plating – you’re fighting Tyranids here. You’re also building up a squad to handle these escalating threats, gaining and levelling new Space Marines from various chapters, unlocking abilities, and acquiring more powerful gear. You know, a bit XCOM-y.

Like Rodeo Games’ Warhammer Quest before it, our version of Deathwatch is a based on a mobile game. This PC ‘Enhanced Edition’ comes with fancier graphics, new Space Marines to recruit, and a redesigned UI with customisable controls. I know, I know, mobile ports and all that, shh shhhh there there quiet down, but Adam still enjoyed Warhammer Quest. I have no idea if Deathwatch is much cop, though.

Deathwatch is out on Steam for £17.09 with a launch discount. Here, have a trailer of gameplay snippets:
