Games Workshop announced today that an official Warhammer iOS game is coming next year courtesy of Hunters [$4.99] and Hunters 2 [$1.99] developer Rodeo Games. If you’re thinking that the fantastic top-down game engine and proven strategy gameplay in the Hunters series seems like a perfect fit for the classic tabletop game Warhammer, then you’re not alone – it seems like a match made in heaven.

The iOS game will be based on Warhammer Quest, originally released as a physical board game in the mid-1990s. While a Spring 2013 release window seems like an awful long time away, Rodeo will actually be showing off a playable version of Warhammer Quest at the UK Games Day next month.

Unfortunately this new teaser trailer doesn’t offer much information or show any actual gameplay, but check it out anyway and mark your calendars for the first official Warhammer mobile game hitting next year.

We'll have more on Warhammer Quest for iOS as soon as we get it and our forums would be a good place to stop by for discussion on the game.

    Worst teaser ever?

      Wow, what a helpful teaser video! (NOT!)
      You watch that and think, is there even a game here?!?!?!

  • Oooooomonkey

    OMFG! I've been waiting for this day for a long time. It seemed like an obvious place for a warhammer game. With things like hunters 1&2 and hero mages proving that it's possible.
    Seriously can't wait.

  • Oooooomonkey

    Yep have to agree while the news is amazing the teaser is rubbish.

  • Frank Hopewell-Smith

    YES! Loved Warhammer Quest - now I'm just wondering about the gameplay... I hope it's not action/adventure style - I want classic Warhammer action! 

  • db2

    If it's based on the board game, then this is basically a fancier version of Hero Quest. In other words, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.

    • EpicGamerDude

      Lol i totally need this!!!

  • Faeryan

    Warhammer + Rodeo Games.. Sweet!
    Just hoping that this time they squeeze in enough content. With both Hunters games the meaningful (story based) content seemed a bit lacking.
    Some good long campaigns and the usual Rodeo Games quality and we have a winner.

    Maybe introduce paid expansion campaigns instead of IAPs that ease and speed up the gaming even more.

  • bradnicholson

    Thinking the same thing, db2. But I really hope this opens the door to a turn-based 40K title. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god.

    • ducksFANjason

      40k would be awesome! Bring me some of that please!

      • Maniacfive

        I'd be so mind blowing stoked with a version of Space Crusade. And the expansions as IAP. Or hell Space Hulk!

        Actually, anything 40k. Death Angel? Come on FFG take my money!

  • Carmen Musarra

    So awesome! I assume this will be a warhammer temple run clone! lol jk

  • ImJPaul

    I remember watching my best friend play this game in elementary ad middle school. He never let me play cuz he was a douche. Now I can finally play. Hurray.

  • Stro

    omg omg omg omg omg omg A Wahammer game on iOS finally? *dies* x_X! 

  • Garrett Granger

    Hope this is faithful to the board game. Spent sooo many hours playing it as a kid.

  • SirFobos

    I am beyond excited about this news. Just played my tabletop version last weekend along with some space hulk. This could be epic if done right.

  • stutz

    If this is asynchronous and stays faithful to the original, then I could see this taking the place of pocket heroes on my iPhone. Very cool news especially since used versions of the board game run for 400 bucks. Maybe this could convince fantasy flight games or games workshop (who has the license?) to do a reprint.

  • stutz

    More info and honestly less excited. My guess is that it will try to be its own game that is 'inspired' by WHQ

  • ianlogsdon

    This is very encouraging. Games Workshop only in the last few months started using digital publishing for their game books (their publishing arm has been in the eBook game for awhile and also does mp3 audio plays). The lack of any mobile game development (at least since 40k Squad Commander for Nintendo DS which was...disappointing) has had me scratching my head for awhile now. We're talking about a turn based combat game, which is basically ideally suited to the iPhone. Maybe its because most of their licenses are with THQ, and they're having serious financial issues.

    Whatever the case, this is a majorly awesome news item for the board game geek in me.

  • DecafTable

    Images look cool, but what's with the god awful voice acting? *shudders*

  • REkzkaRZ

    Exciting promise, annoying promo / voice.
    Want to see: complex figures, detailed story w/o deviation from Warhammer world, option to level up & get gear & skills, cool variety in gameplay, a strategic component, option to turn off music & use your own music, etc.
    I'd be fine with *NO* voice acting & no CG heads. (EVER!)

    What could make a game *GREAT*?  No shopping (!!!), actual adventures where you might have to run b/c opponent could beat you -- but you can return stronger later & maybe win, and strategy vs "button mashing".

  • REkzkaRZ

    Good link, helpful info -- MORE psyched!

  • Uksweeney

    Any update?

  • SirFobos

    Looks like the private beta will be starting soon. We may be seeing this in the next month!
