Focus Home’s Necromunda: Underhive Wars Gets a New Cinematic Trailer

Necromunda: Underhive Wars

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: Underhive Wars 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.

Games Workshop Reveals Warhammer 40,000 9th Edition

Warhammer 9th Edition

The rumors have proven true, and Games Workshop has announced the 9th edition of Warhammer 40,000. The new edition will allow current codexes to be compatible (until new ones are released) and with a few Psychic Awakening books still to be released, that’s a good thing.

There have been a few teasers as to what we can expect with the new edition and it sounds much more like a .75 rules change as opposed to anything major.

The new edition includes a “Crusade System” that links your games in an ongoing narrative. It allows for both growth in size of an army but also the “story it tells.” Units and characters gain “Battle Honours, special skills and Crusade relics as well as Battle Scars.” Out of all of the initial announcement, this addition sounds the most promising and intriguing as it will encourage ongoing campaigns and narratives that allows us collectors to create an even closer bond with our army. For those who play Blood Bowl, you’ll know what I mean by that.

Other things mentioned in the announcement were “more command points,” “tanks are back on track can shoot in combat,” “terrain has been rebuilt,” “strategic reserves has been changed,” and “aircraft take flight.”

The game too has been “balanced for every size.” With the addition of Kill Team to Games Workshop’s games, it makes you wonder what lessons has been learned from that game, which will continue to exist and will get new material spinning out of the new edition of Warhammer 40,000.

We’ll have more to come, including a look at the new Space Marines and Necrons, and we’ll have the new edition of the game in our hands not too long from now it sounds like.
