Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon Announced

Slitherine and Games Workshop announce Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon, a turn-based strategy game using Games Workshop's "Battle for Armageddon" setting they plan on releasing in the first quarter of next year for Windows and iOS. "It is very exciting to see a game like this come alive - I just can't wait to play it," said Iain McNeil, Development Director of the Slitherine Group. "It's been almost 15 years since a turn-based strategy game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe has been released and we think it is now time to deliver that experience to all fans around the world." Here's a feature list:

  • The game portrays the Second War for Armageddon™ in great detail, from the initial Ork landings to the final liberation of the planet;
  • It contains a large branching campaign with 30 major scenarios, plus additional 5 tutorial scenarios that explore the story in detail;
  • A complex plot, which can develop during a mission, right in the middle of battle, creating an engaging story line with unexpected twists;
  • Players lead Imperial troops of the Armageddon™ Steel Legion, with supporting assets from a number of Space Marine chapters against the ferocious Orks;
  • Fight alongside Commissar Yarrik and Commander Dante against the cunning Ork Warboss Ghazghkull Thraka;
  • Carry over battle-hardened veterans from scenario to scenario, using their experience and upgrading their equipment;
  • Detailed combat model with terrain, weather and morale effects;
  • Extensive modding options delivered through a powerful and easy-to-use game editor.
