Strategy game creator, Slitherine, unleashes Armageddon, its first Warhammer 40,000-based title. Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is set during the Second War of Armageddon as players lead Imperial forces of the Armageddon Steel Legion, along with a few Space Marines, against Ghazghkull Thraka’s massive Ork Waaagh! invasion, says Pocket Gamer. The game will feature over 30 turn-based scenarios with over 100 different unit types to control.
Iain McNeil, Development Director of the Slitherine Group, said in a press release, “It is very exciting to see a game like this come alive – I just can’t wait to play it!” “It’s been almost 15 years since a turn-based strategy game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe has been released and we think it is now time to deliver that experience to all fans around the world”.
For those who enjoy a nice game of multiplayer, a separate set of maps designed and balanced specifically for multiplayer will be available. We still have to wait until sometime in 2014 before we can begin destroying some orks.
