Focus Home Interactive and Rogue Factor have released Necromunda: Underhive Wars, the first video game adaptation of Games Workshop’s dark and violent Necromundatabletop game, part of the Warhammer 40,000universe. This new tactical RPG is available today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC via Steam. Experience a massive story campaign, customize and lead your gang through endless Operations, and take the fight online in fast-paced strategy battles for up to four players.
Necromunda: Underhive Wars is a game of choices in every respect. Pick your house, select which marauders to hire, and level up your gang with new skills, stats, gear, passives, careers, and more.
In the campaign, you’ll join the feud of shaky alliances and vendettas between Houses Escher, Goliath and Orlock as they vie for control of ancient technology and power. Gaining the upper hand won’t be easy — keeping it from other factions will be even harder. Then challenge other gangs online in free-for-all, team-based, and pure 1v1 matches that will test your dominance of the battlefield.
Rogue Factor and Focus Home Interactive have released a first look at gameplay for Necromunda: Underhive Wars, the third-person tactical action game set in Games Workshop’s iconic far-future cityscape, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Sept. 8, 2020.
Deep below the nightmarish, polluted hive cities of Necromunda, in the dark, twisted tunnels of the Underhive, rival gangs fight to the bitter end for personal power, wealth, survival and the honor of their House.
Lead, customize and grow your forces of Escher, Goliath and Orlock gangers, specializing each unit for battle in hazardous, vertical, dystopian environments. Exploit the terrain in explosive tactical gunfights: climb raised walkways to take the advantage, set traps, and ambush foes to force them into bloody melee engagements.
Head to the underhive with a new cinematic trailer for Necromunda: Underhive Wars. The upcoming video game is a turn-based strategy RPG from Focus Home Interactive and Games Workshop.
The first video game adaptation of Necromunda, the mythical tabletop game, Necromunda: UnderhiveWars brings you right up to the action, with an over-the-shoulder view of every epic takedown and battle. The nightmarishly polluted and dangerous Hive City is home to Houses Orlock, Escher, and Goliath, each seeking to come out on top.
Dive deep into the twisted tunnels of the Underhive in the game’s compelling story campaign and Salvage Operations, where rival gangs will fight to the bitter end for personal power, wealth, survival, and honor. Command, evolve, and customize your gangs against the AI or with up to three friends online. The choices — and consequences — are yours, but only the strongest will survive.
Necromunda: Underhive Wars is expected to launch this summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Players can pre-order the game now on Steam.
Even as violent as Necromunda is, the Eightfold Harvest Lord is a name that turns stomachs. The bounty hunter is available for Corpse Grinder Cult, Chaos Helot, or Chaos Corrupted gangs. He’s armed with a paired heavy chain cleavers.
The 12-part resin figure is now available from Forge World for $30 and the rules can be found in Necromunda: The Book of Ruin.
Games Workshop has revealed a brand new starter set for Necromunda, Necromunda: Dark Uprising.
The set includes modular Zone Moratlis terrain and two complete gangs. One is the brand new Corpse Grinder Cult who will take on the Palanite Enforcers. The set also includes a rulebook, cards, dice, and rulers.
But, that’s not all. The Book of Ruins brings cults to Necromunda creating even more of a threat to the planet. The new supplement features Genestealer Cults, Helot Chaos Cults, and the Corpse Grinder Cult. There are also rules to allow you to corrupt your existing house gang!
This week’s new pre-orders from Forge World features two games and a bit of a surprise.
Necromunda sees the release of two new Hired Guns. Apollus Kage was a member of the Orlock gang the Sump Dogs. Krotus Hark, on the other hand, is a former Goliath who was born with that most dangerous of gifts – intelligence.
Both are now available for $41. Apollus Kage has also been designed so that his head, arms, and backpack are compatible with a large proportion of Necromunda miniatures for conversions.
The Lord of the Rings sees two releases this week.
Personalities of the Shire – Will Whitfoot and Baldo Tulpenny are available now for $21. Rally your Hobbits to fight with jolly old Will Whitfoot, the former mayor of Hobbiton. Meanwhile, take advantage of Baldo Tulpenny’s skills as a champion stone skimmer to attack Ruffians from afar or have him set a series of traps to slow down Sharkey’s men.
You can also ruff up some Hobbits with the Ruffian Leaders. They’re available for $33.
Ruffian Chief Sid Briarthorn, enforcer Rowan Thistlewood and spy Bill Ferny are here to take any unruly Hobbits off to the lockholes. Sid encourages your Ruffians to fight even harder, you can burn down Hobbit-holes with Rowan and use Bill’s information to keep track of the Shire Folk. You can also use all three to bind any pesky Hobbits in chains, leaving them helpless.
Games Workshop has revealed next week’s pre-orders a bit early and Blood Bowl and Necromunda fans should be happy with this one.
The Halflings are finally here after being revealed some time ago. Along with the team is a new pitch, dice, team card pack, and the fifth issue of Spike! magazine.
On top of that, there’ll be two Made to Order figures, a Treeman and Halfling Hot-pot.
For Necromunda, two famous Bounty Hunters return, Kal Jericho and his sidekick Scabs! The classic characters get an updated sculpt (actually in scale this time) and you can get them and add them to your games (if you missed the Made to Order re-release of the classic sculpt or just want to update).
Games Workshop has been releasing the original gangs for Necromunda one at a time and the final House Gang, House Delaque has been revealed!
These figures have been re-designed from their original look at their new plastic kit will allow you to build your own gang with all manner of equipment.
Games Workshop is also making is easier to get into Necromunda.
The company is releasing a standalone Necromunda Rulebook that combines the rules from the Necromunda: Underhive boxed set with content from Gang War. It also features updated rules from Errata and FAQs.
There will also be a new book Gangs of the Underhive which will have rules for all six of the House Gangs plus Hangers-on, Brutes, the trading post and more.
These two books will allow new players to start with any gangs they want and provide an updated rules and two handy releases combining the various releases.
Forge World has three new items out this week, two for Blood Bowl and one for Necromunda.

The Swift Twins have it all, the looks, charisma, awesome outfits, and skill. The Star Players can be used on High Elf, Dark Elf, and Elven Union Blood Bowl teams but you have to hire them as a pair.
