Listen up, youse grots! Fings are gonna get orky round ‘ere and if you fink dat- ‘scuse me. HRRRK. HNNGGRRK. Ahem. Sorry. Little bit snotty in the throat. What I was trying to say is that Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon – Da Orks [official site] is now out. It’s a standalone follow-up to 40k: Armageddon, a seriously hexy turn-based strategy game recreating a great war from our grimdark future. While that focused on Spoice Murines and their steadfast defence of the planet Armageddon, Da Orks shows the other side – a load of orks larking about and having a nice big WAAAGH!
Adam liked Armageddon, explaining it’s pretty similar to Panzer Corps and that it might be a good-jumping on point for hexy wargames if you’re familiar with 40k. Alec was less keen but hey, that’s how opinions work. Da Orks is basically the same game but focused on dose green boyz. It does have a new multiplayer skirmish mode too.
Developed by Flashback Games with The Lordz Games Studio and published by Slitherine, Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon – Da Orks is out now on Steam for £13.49/17,99/$17.99 – which includes a small launch discount. You can also buy it direct from Slitherine. The original game costs £30 so this is a tidy little price for what’s essentially a standalone expansion.
Here’s a little story about what made the orks go on holiday to Armageddon:
