Focus Home Interactive and Streum On Studio have released a new gameplay trailer for the fast-paced FPS Necromunda: Hired Gun, this time taking you deep into the depths of the city of Necromunda itself. In this gritty underworld, anything goes — for the right price. And as a bounty hunter, you’ll want to get to know the lay of the land, if only to figure out who’s most likely to stab you in the back.
Introduce yourself at Martyr’s End, the hub of all the action in your little corner of Necromunda. Here you’ll meet other scoundrels and stock up on libations and information from the local barmaid. It’s also where you’ll gear up, upgrade your bionic augments, customize your character, get treats for your cyber-mastiff, and decide on your next contract. And then you’re off into the Underhive, hunting targets through a towering metropolis of warring factions, toxic factories, colossal fortresses and other generally inhospitable locations.
Necromunda: Hired Gun launches digitally on June 1 and is available to pre-order now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. All pre-orders receive the “Hunter’s Bounty” pack, which features unique cosmetics for your knife, stub gun, and outfit.

Focus Home Interactive and Streum On Studio have announced a thrilling new FPS based in the Warhammer 40,000 universe: Necromunda: Hired Gun! Set in Games Workshop’s infamous dystopian cityscape of Necromunda, where gangs battle for survival in a nightmare underhive, Necromunda: Hired Gun is expected to launch on June 1, 2021, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Developed by the passionate indie team of Warhammer 40,000 diehards at Streum On Studio (makers of Space Hulk: Deathwing), Necromunda: Hired Gun is fast-paced and brutal, giving you endless options for engaging your enemies. Wall-run, double-jump, and use your wrist-mounted grappling hook to rush, disarm, and evade enemies. And then there’s the upgrades — everything from your brain to legs and even your pet dog can be enhanced as you earn money from contracts.
Your cyber-mastiff is your only true companion — half-dog, half-robot, and fully ready to strike in exchange for treats. Your canine friend can warn you of enemies and insta-kill them with a bite to the neck, so keep him healthy in return with the best augments money can buy!
Players can pre-order Necromunda: Hired Gun today at a special discount and claim the exclusive “Hunter’s Bounty” pack as a bonus, featuring a new look for your knife, revolver and outfit, plus a unique chew toy for your dog.
The Redemptionists are coming! The gang is one of the four gangs whose rules came in the 1996 Outlanders expansion for Necromunda. In its New Model Monday, Games Workshop has shown off the first of the new miniatures full of flaming goodness.
Redemptionists are a more hardcore Cawdor gang, even more devout than their brethren.
Redemptionists can be added to an existing Cawdor gang or can make up their own fanatical one, ready to spread the faith through their exterminators, fire pikes, or eviscerators.
The original Cult of Redemption worshipped the God-Emperor of Mankind focused on three sins:
Being a Psyker

Forge World has two new pre-orders up now on the site. You can add to your Horus HeresyNight Lord forces as well as expand your Escher gangs. See what you can get now!
Elite shock troops adept at sowing panic and dismay with their arrival, the Contekar Elites’ talents for steadfast prosecution of war was much vaunted amongst the Legions during the Great Crusade. Contekar Terminators are butchers and murderers of a high order, to be called upon when the VIII Legion wished to bring more than terror but utter and abject despair and destruction upon a foe, to bur their armies, infrastructure and agriculture, and to topple the foundations of their civilization.
Escher gangers are attracted to the big cats of Phyrr in particular for their exotic looks and killer instincts. Such beasts are rare in the extreme, and smuggling them planetside to Hive Primus is no mean feat, so they are an incredibly rare sight as pets even amongst the hierarchy of House Escher. Yet seen they are, and when the opportunity to acquire such a beast, or even better, a mating pair, arises, Escher gang queens will go to any lengths to secure them.
After being delayed, Nurgle‘s chosen, the Death Guard, arrive for Warhammer 40,000 in next week’s pre-order.

There’ll also be easier ways to build your forces. A new Combat Patrol will be available. It features Typhus, Herald of Nurgle, Plague Marines, Poxwalkers, and a Biologus Putrifier.
With the old also comes something new with the Lord of Virulence. This leader is protected by Terminator armor and will spread disease with a plague spewer.
You’ll also be able to add to the battlefield with the Miasmic Malignifier. It doesn’t just look on the table, it’ll also help the Contagions of Nurgle spread even further.
Some other models get repackaged as well.
The Chosen of Mortarion are three models that were featured in the previous edition of Warhammer 40K’s starter box.
You can also show off your allegiance to Nurgle with the Contamination Corps Collection that includes everything above in one package and some signed artwork as well.
