Necromunda coming to PC as “turn-based tactical RPG”

Of all the Games Workshop licenses, Necromunda is the one I’ve been hoping to see on PC. A turn-based tactical game of gang warfare in the fantastically rotten goth-tech underbelly of the 40k universe, it was my favourite tabletop game back in the day. Now that every other corner of the two Warhammer settings has been mined, the folks at Rogue Factor are finally digging into the rich vein of Necromunda. Their game, which carries the subtitle Underhive Wars [official site], is in development and though the announcement doesn’t provide much detail, we’ll be learning much more in the very near future.

Bing bong! Space Hulk: Deathwing now boarding

Space Hulk: Deathwing [official site], the new squad-based FPS adaptation of Games Workshop’s tabletop Warhammer 40,000 spin-off, is now out. Our Alec is currently busy polishing his crotchskull but, once he’s done with that and made himself decent, he’ll load Deathwing and play so he can tell us all Wot He Thinks. For now, he sends initial word that “the environments look like concept art and it has the requisite thumpy metal sound effects, but do brace yourself for a whole lot of stomping down long, twisty corridors.” Sounds like Space Hulk all right.

SPACE HALT! Space Hulk: Deathwing delayed five days

Space Hulk: Deathwing [official site], the Warhammer 40k squad-based FPS about Space Marines shooting oh so many nasty aliens, has been delayed a few days. It was expected this Friday, the 9th, but publishers Focus Home have pushed it back until Wednesday the 14th for a little more polish. Untrue rumours started by me suggest that our own Alec Meer has been in the recording booth for a special mode replacing every single sound effect with him shouting “SPACE HULK” with various intonations.

Watch 17 minutes of Space Hulk: Deathwing singleplayer

The best way to play Space Hulk: Deathwing [official site] will surely be its cooperative multiplayer mode, with you and three of your closest warpals yelling over Skype as you stomp around mowing down hordes of aliums. The FPS will also do singleplayer with AI squadmates, mind, and that’s on display in a new gameplay video. It shows seventeen minutes of uncut gameplay, seventeen minutes of Terminators stomping around a space cathedral, whacking Tyranids with swords inscribed with slogans like “I am wrath. I am steel. I am the mercy of angels.” No subtlety, those Space Marines. Read the rest of this entry »

Space Hulk: Deathwing Stomping Into December

Space Hulk: Deathwing [official site] finally has a release date, announced today by publisher Focus Home: December 9th. Deathwing is a new FPS adaptation of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40k spin-off, with Space Marines tromping onto colossal warped spaceships to salvage ancient treasure and smash aliens. You’ve got a month to prepare, so draw up a schedule for the essentials: plug in storm hammer for a deep charge; polish helmet; doodle “Aetius Maximianus Caelius ♡ The Emperor” in Sharpie on armour; check Urban Dictionary for cool new names that hip initiates call aliens.
