Snowprint Studios has announced the official release of Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus. Hailing from the world-famous Warhammer series, Tacticus is a grid-based tactical entry in the series featuring many favourite factions to build armies from and dominate the battlefield.

Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus is a battlefield game that takes place on a hexagonal grid. By building a team of troops and famous heros from the franchise, players will need to use all their cunning and tactics to crush the enemy in intense fast-paced skirmishes in the PvE campaign or against other players in Live PvP battles.

With such a well-loved series a lot can go wrong for the developers, and Snowprint Studios have taken a lot of care to create an entry worthy of the name. For their release, they have included such fan favourite factions as the Ultramarines, Orks, Black Templars, Necrons and the Black Legion. Also to ensure the quality of the story, they obtained the services of renowned Black Library author Matt Forbeck.

On hiring Matt Forbeck Snowprint Studios said: “We keep saying that lore and story are enormously important to us here on the Tacticus team, and that means the writing of those stories is too important to do in between other design jobs. We are very proud and excited to announce that we’ve hired the amazing Matt Forbeck to write our campaign. We feel fortunate to be able to bring you his experience and storytelling skills through our game.”

When discussing the love the development team has for the franchise, Game Director Wilhelm Osterberg said “Reflecting our passion for the Warhammer IP, a ‘Hobby Hub’ has been placed front and center on the main screen. This allows us to highlight what is happening in the broader Warhammer Universe right in the game. Tacticus will appeal to both current Warhammer fans and help those new to the IP to appreciate the full range and breadth of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.”

Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus is available to download now on the App Store and Google Play.
