Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus Now Available For Pre-Registration

Snowprint Studios‘ Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus marks a significant moment for Warhammer 40,000 on mobile devices. Fight through the galactic warzone with units from eight factions. Heroes rise to the challenge in planetwide campaigns, face off against arch enemies in pitched PvP skirmishes or collaborate with fellow guild members to take down massive bosses. Beginning today, players can pre-register the game and all those who do will receive special rewards at launch later this year. 

Warhammer 40,000 Factions and Campaigns
Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus will launch with EIGHT playable factions and more will be on the way in regular updates throughout the game’s development. Every army can take part and fight through a deep narrative crafted by renowned Warhammer scribe Matt Forbeck. At the start of your journey, you begin fighting with an Ultramarine squad, quickly enhanced with a fierce member of the Adepta Sororitas, to defeat the implacable Necrons. As you progress you continue to unlock squads of some of the universe’s most powerful warriors and battle through multiple parallel campaigns  

Here is a quick list of the announced playable armies: 

  • Ultramarines – Adeptus Astartes, the war-hardened, armor-clad space marines who defend the Imperium. 
  • Necrons – Awoken from their tombs, these eternal machines bring death to any who oppose them.                        
  • Black Legion – Turned to chaos by the dark gods, the Black Legion were once the best of the imperium. Now they are driven by revenge and eternal conflict. 
  • Black Templars – Space Marines on a special mission to purge the galaxy of enemies. Sometimes even the Imperium’s own are considered a threat.   
  • Orks – Bred for war by the old ones. Orks’ great joy is found in combat. Might makes right for these xenos beasts, and no one can stop them. 
  • Death Guard – The servants of the diseased god Nurgle plague the galaxy. With horrific weapons and shambling pox walkers, the galaxy will never be safe. 
  • Adepta Sororitas – The sisterhood of faith brings divine wrath to the battlefield. Miracles can happen…and the Sororitas prove it.             
  • Astra Militarum – The Emperor’s hammer never stops on the battlefield. Using firepower and intelligence to outwit superior foes and bask in victory.   

Quick and Thrilling PvP
Live PvP will be available at launch for players to battle it out. Fast paced skirmishes with no waiting time will bring players head-to-head in intense bursts of Warhammer combat. Post launch, the team has plans for massive Guild vs Guild wars that take PvP to a larger level scale.

Owlcat Games announces Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader

Owlcat Games has announced Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader – the first classic roleplaying game with turn-based combat in the legendary grim darkness of the far future of Warhammer 40,000, produced in close collaboration with Games Workshop to be released on PC and consoles. The World Premiere, including the first glimpse of gameplay, was announced at the Warhammer Skulls Showcase as part of the festival of video games. Players that are eager to get their hands on the early version of the game and contribute to the development can obtain exclusive Founder’s Packs that are available from Owlcat Studio’s website.

Players will take on the role of a Rogue Trader, a scion of an ancient dynasty of daring privateers, that reign over their own merchant empire and explore the fringes of Imperial space with the blessing of the Emperor Himself. Thanks to their Warrant of Trade – the Rogue Trader is endowed with privileges and power beyond imagination as well as the task of expanding the borders of the Imperium. At their disposal is a gargantuan voidship of immense strength and innumerable personnel ready to follow any undertakings of the leader. Show your subjects mercy or disdain, stay faithful to the Emperor or consort with enemies of Mankind – every decision and every act of the Rogue Trader sends ripples throughout entire star systems, changing the in-game world and those who inhabit it.

The action will unfold in the Koronus Expanse, a dangerous and unexplored region on the far frontiers of the Imperium of Man. Many explorers have fallen victim to this dangerous place and never returned.

Remarkable and sophisticated companions are one of the pillars of cRPGs and Rogue Trader is no exception. A mighty Space Marine, a mercurial Aeldari Ranger, or even a courageous Sister of Battle armed with bolter and ardent prayers are just a few of the many characters that will join the Rogue Trader during your adventures.

Fans can support the game and purchase one of the Founder’s Packs and become a part of the team behind Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. Those who decide to support the developers early will gain access to the Alpha and Beta versions of the game, help the team to shape the experience with their feedback, and receive a set of unique rewards and items available only to early supporters.
