A new 40K turn-based strategy game is on the way for both the PC and iPad platforms.
Slitherine has announced Warhammer 40,000 Armageddon as a Q1 2014 release.
An excerpt from the Slitherine forum post:
“This deal represents yet another testament to our continuous aim to reach new audiences, without losing sight of who we are and what we do best”, said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine Group. “It’s all about creating strategy games that are targeted to a particular audience and addressing a very specific need in the market. The Warhammer 40,000 setting is a perfect fit for the style of strategy games that we make and will be very popular with fantasy and science fiction fans alike. Joining forces with Games Workshop will allow us to bring an wonderfully deep and appropriate IP to the Turn Based Strategy genre”.
The comments in the forum posting from a source at Slitherine indicate that a Play By E-Mail option will also be available.
Set during the Second war for Armageddon, expect to see all of the major characters and themes front and centre. Having a good collection of Armageddon themed forces in my own collection, I am highly anticipating this title, and am eager to see what is in store!
