Rather than overhaul gear and crafting systems, Darktide should rip them out

The makers of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide have laid out their plans to improve the co-op shooter’s shopping and crafting systems. The gear system changes, due to arrive in the next patch, do sound like improvements to the current state of things. These plans do not sound better than entirely ending the tedious grinds of random rolls and making numbers bigger. Why improve when it would be better to remove? Read more

Henry Cavill could be making a Warhammer 40K TV show with Amazon

Amazon are close to signing a deal with Games Workshop to bring Warhammer 40,000 and its grimdark futuristic universe to TV streaming. Hollywood Reporter say that Henry Cavill, recently-dropped Superman and former Geralt Of Rivia, is involved as an executive producer and potential series lead. The rights to Warhammer 40K are reportedly hotly contested among the rival streaming services, with Amazon spending months negotiating the possible deal with Games Workshop. Read more

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector on Game Pass lured me into turn-based tactics with a familiar setting

While XCOM is about as serious as I get with turn-based tactics, I have been curious to try more, so I decided to give Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector a go after seeing it’s leaving Game Pass soon. Brothers, it’s decent. Familiarity with the rock-paper-chainsword setup of Warhammer 40K arsenals is easing me into the unfamiliar world of retreating attacks and armour calculations. If you’re in a similar position and also on Game Pass, maybe have a look before it leaves Microsoft’s subscription service at the end of the month. Read more

Necromunda: Hired Gun review – a brilliant shooter whose lack of polish stops it from reaching greatness

Necromunda: Hired Gun is so close to being Warhammer 40,000 Doom.Necromunda: Hired Gun’s reveal in March caught me a little off guard, doubly so when I realised it’s out in June and not some years into the future. Streum On, the small French team behind it, typically takes a while to put out a new game. But years of experience and Focus Home Interactive’s newfound support have clearly helped the team arrive at the perfect size and scope for its games, because Hired Gun is a game that entertains, and sometimes impresses, without falling into the trap of overambition.Watch on…

Necromunda: Hired Gun is Doom meets Dishonored in Warhammer 40K

By Sherif Saed, Friday, 19 March 2021 11:40 GMT The makers of Space Hulk: Deathwing have returned with a new shooter.StreumOn, the indie team behind the classic E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy, and Space Hulk: Deathwing more recently, has returned with a new shooter project. Necromunda: Hired Gun is the studio’s violent, frenetic shooter and it’s coming out June 1.Necromunda: Hired Gun is set in Warhammer 40,000’s Necromunda, a dystopian hive city, a setting rarely explored in games. Gameplay looks more similar to StreumOn’s first project than the tactical Deathwing. The character can fluidly chain wall-runs, dashes and grappling hook shots as…

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 of the dregs. It’s a far cry from the usual world-saving heroism of Space Marines (though crotchskulls are still worn). A new 10-minute narrated trailer shows and explains a whole lot of how the game…
