Horny: Total Warhammer Beastmen Expansion Is Out

Those boisterous Beastmen are now stomping around in Total Warhammer [official site], thanks to today’s release of the ‘Call of the Beastmen’ expansion. It’ll cost you £14 to play as that horny rabble yourself but, even if not, they can now appear as opponents in the Grand Campaign. A fairly big free update has launched alongside the expansion, also bringing oodles of fixes and tweaks, drafting the Amber Wizard hero unit for the Empire, adding new multiplayer maps, and more. But back to the Beastmen: here, you can watch a bit of them in action.

Sonic Mania Remixing Classic 2D Games; New 3D Sonic Coming Too

In the same way that ageing rockers prove they’ve still got ‘it’ by collaborating with hip young pop musicmen, Sonic the Hedgehog is getting re-re-remixed. As part of his 25th birthday celebrations, Sega have announced Sonic Mania, a new 2D platformer with a 16-bit style and zones inspired by ye olde Sonic games from the Mega Drive. It looks pretty interesting!

To prove that Sonic’s new material is still really good and powerful and as good as he ever was, okay, Sega also announced a yet-unnamed new 3D Sonic game.

Total Warhammer Beastmen Expansion Announced

Wedding season is upon us and The Creative Assembly are celebrating with great gusto. Today they announced the first Total Warhammer [official site] campaign expansion will introduce the Bestmen, a new faction who come to get wicked hammered and fornicate then rampage across the continent roaring. Look out, Bruges!

“Alice,” you say in that certain tone. “Is this another ha-ha-hilarious intentional misunderstanding?” It’s a fair cop, guv. It’s actually the Beastmen coming in ‘Call of the Beastmen’ on July 28th. The rest of that is mostly true, though.

Warhammer 40k: Dawn Of War 3 Shows Full E3 Demo

In the grim darkness of the far future, there are only Warhammer posts on RPS. Jim is interred within the Golden Throne, his withered remains a beacon guiding humanity through the darkness of the web. As for Kieron, well… traitors get what they deserve.

Adam has already told you what he chatted about and saw of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III [official site] during E3 in June. But what if Adam’s a heretic? What if he’s under a dark influence? You’ll have to watch the RTS’s E3 demo for yourself, now that Relic have released it in handy YouTube format:

Sega Acquire Amplitude, Will Publish Endless Space 2

Sega have acquired Amplitude, creators of the Endless series of strategy games. Endless Legend was our game of the year in 2014 and its predecessor Endless Space is set to receive a direct sequel that will enter Early Access later this year. Sega will now publish that game, as well as assuming responsibility for the back catalogue of Endless games, which includes Dungeon of the Endless, a fantastic tower-defense/roguelike hybrid.

Amplitude are one of the smartest young strategy studios around and they join Creative Assembly, Relic and Sports Interactive (Football Manager is a strategy game) in Sega’s stable of PC developers. That’s a mighty strong line-up for a company that old men like me still associate with ancient consoles and platform games rather than PC publishing.

Sweet Khorne: Total Warhammer – Blood For The Blood God

When a giant plucks a man from the battlefield and bites off his head, should there not be great gouts of blood spurting from the neck-stump? Should a troll not reasonably expect a spattering of the red stuff when tearing an Imperial knight into funsize pieces? The Blood for the Blood God DLC for Total War: Warhammer [official site] has just arrived, and as in Total Wars past, it adds blood to the battlefield. It also adds new campaign events that “serve to encourage slaughter across the world, all to the laughter and delight of The Blood God”.
