Necromunda: Underhive Wars plans to fix crashes and save corruption

Turn-based gang warfare game Necromunda: Underhive Wars launched its grimy take on Warhammer 40,000 earlier this week. You'd expect to need some grit in a strategy game set in a polluted, gun-totin' dystopia but players seem to be fighting the game itself about as much as rival gangs. The makers say they've been watching player feedback and have set out a plan to fix crashes,…

Necromunda: Underhive Wars trailer explains the Warhammer spin-off’s warring

Next week we'll be invited to visit a particularly dirty corner of the Warhammer 40,000 universe in Necromunda: Underhive Wars, a turn-based tactical squad game from the studio behind Mordheim: City Of The Damned. Based vaguely on the Games Workshop tabletop wargame Necromunda, Underhive Wars is set in the bowels of a vast city on an industrial planet, where wacky gangs brawl over the dregs…

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a co-op FPS from the makers of Vermintide

They've gone and done it, team. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 developers Fatshark went and put their rat-smasher in space, announcing Warhammer 40,000: Darktide at today's Xbox Games Showcase. Frankly, it's about damn time someone made a rock-solid FPS in the 41st Millenium - and who better than the folks who turned a stodgy old fantasy wargame into a stellar Left 4 Dead successor?

Get 11 Warhammer games for $13 in the latest Humble Bundle

Attention, strategy fans, there's a new Humble Bundle afoot that's packed to the brim with classic Warhammer games, including all three Dawn Of Wars, the excellent Battlefleet Gothic: Armada and Vermintide: End Times. Running from now until July 28th, there are 11 Warhammer games here up for grabs for very agreeable sum of just £10.50 / $13, which for us in the UK is less…

You can now buy Warhammer 40k stickers for your Counter-Strike guns

In the grim darkness of the near future, there is only De_dust2. But look further ahead and- oh! There it is! Only war. Now look back to the present and find the two have come together in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, with new Warhammer 40,000 stickers now sold to slap on your virtual guns. CS's stickers have always been a bit 'teenager bunkbed' so frankly I…

World Of Warships is getting Warhammer 40K skins

In the grim darkness of the near past, there was only war. So maybe it's not wholly weird that World Of Warships has announced a Warhammer 40,000 crossover. The free-to-play multiplayer shipshooter will get WH40K-themed ships, commanders, camouflages, patches, flags, and such as part of an update coming in June. It is wild to see this and remember that Games Workshop ever seemed protective of…

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II’s Chaos expansion brings spiky naked dudes to space

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II, a slightly flabby spaceship smashing strategy than I nonetheless had a great time with, gets a big dose of daemonic evil today in the form of a new campaign featuring everyone's favourite spiky chaps. No, not hedgehogs you silly goose! Chaos! Them with the skin peeling and possession and giant psychic tears in space time and that. A fine bunch. Avert your…

Wot I Think: Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2

In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. This is a lie, of course. There’s also fancy hats, for example. I know this because I’ve seen the admirals of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 wearing them while they command their giant space cathedrals to do a murder at other giant space cathedrals, in a sequel that veers fairly close to the original,…

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 delayed into 2019

With September dropping out of warp in only a few hours, the publishers of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 today announced that ah, no, the spaceship-battling RTS will not launch in September after all. It's delayed into January 2019 to allow extra time to polish and improve it (hot tip: paint the game red, it'll run faster), as is the usual delay way. But! The developers…

Warhammer 40k is hexy 4Xy in Gladius – Relics Of War

In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only Warhammer. We're still a few millennia off a Warhammer 40,000 dating game (try not to blush as you polish your crush's crotchskull!) but Games Workship's grimdark universe did today expand into the realms of turn-based 4X strategy with the launch of Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War. Don't expect to score a cultural…

Has Space Hulk: Deathwing been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they've been changed for better or worse.Bolters are the standard-issue weapons of Warhammer 40,000’s Space Marines, and they fire bolts. But they’re not just bolts — not really. As befitting the grim darkness of 40K’s far future, the bullets that Space Marines fire are individual rocket-propelled grenades, each backloaded with…

Premature Evaluation – Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus

Premature Evaluation is the weekly column in which we explore the wilds of early access. This week, Fraser has reluctantly returned to the grimdark confines of the 41st millennium. Yes, it's more Warhammer 40K. Our latest helping of gothic sci-fi comes courtesy of Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus. It looks like Warhammer 40K meets BattleTech. Sadly it is not Warhammer 40K meets BattleTech. Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus might…

Adeptus Titanicus cross-pollinates 40K and BattleTech

There's an inherent sense of All This Has Happened Before And All This Will Happen Again when you've spent as many years as I have writing about videogames, but I got proper head-spinning deju vu when I read about Adeptus Mechanicus: Dominus today. Didn't I only just post about an XCOMish Warhammer 40,000 turn-based strategy game with a cod-Latin name? Turns out that was Mechanicus,…

Space Hulk: Deathwing becomes Enhanced in May

Polish your crotchskull and prepare to demonstrate renewed devotion to the Emperor, as Space Hulk: Deathwing will officially become the Enhanced Edition on May 22nd. This is the last in a series of free updates intended to expand and improve the squad-based FPS, which had the looks of Warhammer 40K but didn't have the touch. It was too janky and just too thin, which is…

Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus is XCOM with machine-worshipping cyborg nutters

In the grim darkness of the... [HIDDEN MOVEMENT]...far future, there is only... [HIDDEN MOVEMENT]...war.Given the number of Warhammer 40K videogames clogging up Steam's arteries these days, it's surprising how few of 'em take an XCOMmy, turn-based squad tactics approach. There's 1998's Chaos Gate, and 2015's slightly too straightforward and more RPGy Deathwatch, and that's about it. Perhaps the newly-announced Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus will fill that…

Sequels for the sequel throne! Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 bringing more WH40K spaceship RTS action

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the Cadian Sector, here comes Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 bursting forth with more Warhammer 40,000 real-time-strategy spaceship combat. Publishers Focus Home today announced a sequel to Tindalos Interactive's 2016 game, saying it will launch some time later this year. Armada 2 boasts many more playable factions, I'm told, with "the Imperial Navy, Space Marines,…

Dawn of War 3 trailer battles over mythical pointy stick

A dramatic new trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 3 [official site] is here, which means lots of Space Marines and Eldar wanking on about prophecies, some wandering world, the Spear of Khaine, lords, betrayal, and other gubbins until Orks roll up looking for "da pointy stikk." Bless your murderous hearts, Orks. This cinematic-o-gameclip video introduces the broad story in Relic's RTS and yes,…

WH40k: Sanctus Reach shows turn-based strategariting

Dawn of War 3 may be 2017's big exciting Warhammer 40,000 real-time strategy game but I'd forgotten that more ponderous 40k is coming too. Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach [official site] arrives before Dawn of War, later this month, and its strategerisating is turn-based. Sanctus Reach will see the Space Marine space viking Space Wolves scrapping with those lovable Ork space hooligans. Yes, yes I know…

Wot I Think – Space Hulk: Deathwing

SPACE HULK SPACE HU.. no, sorry, best not do that again, eh? This latest pixel-flashing rendition of the revered Games Workshop tabletop game is no boardgame adaptation, but rather a squad-based swarm-shooter in the vein of Left 4 Dead. I played Space Hulk: Deathwing [official site] alone and had a lousy time. Then I played it with others and ALL GLORY TO THE EMPEROR OF…

Dawn Of War III: Gorgutz gets a mighty makeover

Along with the rest of the Ork faction, Dawn of War III [official site] is rolling out the red carpet – well, the battle-worn, looted and bloodspattered carpet – for a familiar face: Gorgutz 'Ead 'Unter. The warlord took a break from the franchise for the second game but is returning with a mighty power klaw and a striking yellow makeover for Relic's third game…
