Games Workshop has a couple new video games in the works, apparently. Here’s a teaser for Mordheim: City of the Damned.
From the preview:
In Early Access this November.
Seems interesting. You can’t really tell much from the trailer on how it will play. I always kind of pictured something like the latest X-Com game.
assuming this is going in the same Direction as the “Space Marine” Hack n Slay Game:Interesting for only 5 Min…
It might, instead, go the direction of the Blood Bowl adaptation (basically- it’s exactly the same game, just with polygons).
Wonderful. Is GW now going to start turning abandoned Specialist Games into E-game franchises? Is Man-O-War next? So very sad.
(Insert foul language here)
No idea about why on Earth anybody would complain about this on nothing more than principal. THAT, is so very sad.
Man, I hope Man-O-War is next!
Turn-based. Four factions to start. Single player, or 1-vs-1, with potential for larger multi-player. Warbands of 10 units, and another 5 units in reserve; wounded units can take multiple “games” to heal up, and character death can be permanent.
Definitely has promise, if price and/or DRM doesn’t cripple it. If this was an old-style mulitplayer, where one copy of the game would let 2-4 people play together, my group would be sold on it and I’d resurrect the home LAN. Sadly it’s more likely to be internet-required for multi-player and everybody needs their own copy. That’ll be my make-or-break moment; how many of my tabletop group will be interested in buying it?
Killraven works for GW yes ?…
Killraven does not work for GW and generally dislikes them as a company. Also played Mordheim on the tabletop when it first came out, and still has his box set, but thinks it really needs a second edition to better balance it. But still think a computer version could be fun, and a 4+ player free-for-all would be awesome.
Mordheim, a great setting, is as broken and imbalanced as any other gw game. If they translate the game in any way to the paper one, I can’t wait for the 2 entire days it takes for players to figure that out
