Focus Home Interactive and Rogue Factor have announced Mordheim: City of the Damned
, a video game version of Game Workshop's classic tabletop game, Mordheim
. The title will blend turn-based strategy and RPG elements in bloody battle scenarios set within the decimated Empire City.
A selection of warbands will be available to choose from, including the likes of the Sisters of Sigmar and the Mercenaries from the Empire, as the rival groups battle for supremacy. The group you choose can be developed and improved by "recruit[ing] new units, and equip[ing] them with enhanced gear". Furthermore, your warband can be evolved after you successfully complete a mission. To aid survival, items can be looted from around the game environments, or even from fallen enemies to prepare you for further skirmishes.
Strategy will be the most crucial aspect of the game, as players will be required to contemplate and execute a plan to gain the upper hand on enemies. Ambush tactics will often prove fruitful. The single-player campaign will encourage players to take in the whole game world, and the multi-player modes will also give plenty of opportunities to challenge like-minded players.
A trio of screenshots have been unveiled to showcase the game's many differing characters.Mordheim: City of the Damned
is slated for release in "late 2014".
