Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive have today announced that their video game adoption of Blood Bowl is set to arrive on the iPad this July. The football-based board-game set in Games Workshop’s Warhammer world lets players form teams of Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, Wood Elves or Chaos and battle out on the field.

The iPad version of the game will feature a single-player Campaign mode that’ll allow players to develop their team and gain players as they progress towards conquering the Blood Bowl. For those who want to face off against other players, the game will also feature Hotseat local multiplayer and an online multiplayer mode with a massive permanent league, where players can create and develop their own teams.

Blood Bowl is set to arrive for iPad sometime in early July.

Talisman Goes 50% Off for a Limited Time

Posted by on June 23rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Classic fantasy adventure board game Talisman is currently on sale on the App Store, priced at only $3.99. It’s all in aid of the imminent release of The Frostmarch.

The board game app is the officially licensed version of the Games Workshop game of the same name, in which players embark on a quest for the Crown of Command. Offering both local and real-time online multiplayer, it’s a relative bargain given the pricey physical alternative.

Talisman is on offer for a very limited time only, so swoop in and grab it for $3.99 now, if it appeals to your tabletop gaming sensibilities.

Yesterday we mentioned that Space Hulk had received an update that added a new cross-platform co-op mode. Well we’ve also just figured out (thanks to the questions posed by 148Apps commenter Delnit) that it also supports cross-platform game saves. This means that you can carry over your campaign and multiplayer progress from your Mac/PC to your iPad and vice-versa, ensuring that you’ll always be ready to sacrifice a squad of genetically engineered supersoldiers in the name of The Emperor.

Here’s how you do it:

While it may be a little long in the tooth, Talisman is still a classic board game with checking out. And for only about a tenth of the price!

Space Hulk is adventure enough by itself (at least according to our review), but the iPad game’s latest update includes a new expansion pack called Space Wolves – adding an entirely new campaign and other features to the original game.

Space Wolves includes the “Fangs of Fenris” campaign, which is made up of 3 completely new missions set in a “cool and chilly environment.” Along with the missions, Space Wolves also comes with 11 new unique terminators, brutal new weapons such as the Frost Axe and Wolf Claw, and new skills Murderous Lighting and Hurricane that come via a “Runepriest.” Additionally, the expansion includes new “chapter specific rules,” attempting to add an entirely new dimension to the game.

You can get this hit turn-based strategy game on the App Store for $9.99, and the Space Wolves expansion pack is going to run you an additional $4.99.

LogoWarhammer 40K has been around for years, but its recent spike in popularity has been great for introducing new players (and entirely new generations) to real Space Marines. And the licensing continues with Herocraft and Games Workshop‘s upcoming free-to-play iOS title Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf.

Space Wolf will be a combination of turn-based tactical combat and card collecting. Moves, weapons, and pretty much everything else is handled via cards while the action plays out in 3D. More powerful cards can be acquired through victory (glorious victory!), upgraded through the Iron Priest’s Forge, and presumably purchased with various forms of currency.

Follow the path of the Grey Hunter, Wolf Scout, Blood Claw, or Wolf Guard as you face-off against Word Bearers and Necrons in what is being described as “An epic campaign with branching storylines, spanning hostile environments on a far distant planet.” Personally, I can’t freaking wait.

Space Wolf will be coming to iOS (and Android and PC) sometime in 2014.

It's pretty, and it will certainly conjure memories, but Talisman: Prologue is only an appetizer - not the main course.

Roadhouse Interactive, in partnership with Games Workshop, have announced that they will develop a side-scrolling action game for smartphones and tablets that is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. In this title, players will guide a single space marine who is on a journey to destroy endless amounts of enemies.

“We are incredibly excited to bring a part of Warhammer 40,000 to life on mobile and tablet and it’s great to work with Games Workshop. The legions of fans of Space Marines will now be able to fight the Ork menace while on the move!” said Tarrnie Williams co-founder and President of Roadhouse Interactive.

No, this isn’t a new Marvel comics game based on the not-so-jolly green giant, but rather a sweet new cross platform game based on the Warhammer 40,000 board and video game franchise. Space Hulk‘s developer, Full Control, promises cross platform play across iOS, Mac, and PC, so that should be pretty sweet.

The adaptation will bring the claustrophobic, dungeon-diving fear of the original Space Hulk to the digital realm. One player controls a team of space marines that crawls through the narrow passageways of a derelict spaceship, while another player controls the “Genestealers,” a race of deadly humanoid aliens. Many of the game’s mechanics are based on sci-fi tropes; for example, the Marines can’t see all the Genestealers on the map at any given point, but can see radar blips reminiscent of Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise.
