Warhammer Battle Marches to Xbox 360, PC on GameSpot
reveals plans for
Warhammer: Battle March, an expansion for Warhammer: Mark of Chaos, Namco
Bandai's Warhammer RTS game. Here's word on the add-on, due for PC and Xbox 360
Returning to the series it resurrected, Namco Bandai today
announced the first expansion for Warhammer: Mark of Chaos. Titled Warhammer:
Battle March, the next installment in the tactical strategy game updates Mark of
Chaos with a new single-player campaign that features two new factions: Dark
Elves and Orcs & Goblins. All of the existing factions will also receive new
units, and new online modes will also be added to the mix.
Whereas the first Mark of Chaos was available exclusively for the PC, Warhammer:
Battle March will also be joining the Xbox 360's growing lineup of real-time
strategy games. But an expansion without the original game isn't much good, so
Battle March on the Xbox 360 will include the original Mark of Chaos in its
entirety, as well as all of the new content being added in the PC expansion.
Players will be able to play through single-player campaigns featuring each of
the six different factions, and as is a hallmark of the Warhammer universe,
Battle March will include extensive unit-customization options. The Xbox 360
game also includes online multiplayer battling for up to four players over Xbox
Live in head-to-head and team-based modes.
