mzl.fjddvgjd.175x175-75Tonight's the big night: Rodeo Games's and Games Workshop's Warhammer Quest is coming to iPhone and iPad tonight. It'll launch as a Universal app priced at $4.99, which is a rad price for a game that can consume your life if you let it.

I've praised this thing over and over again in the past, so you've probably caught some of what I'm going to say here... but just in case: this is an awesome port that manages to feel like a real video game unlike a lot of board game ports out there. Also, it's a pretty rad loot-based dungeon crawler on its own, boasting tons of quests, random loot, and awesome encounters. You can read more about it here.

Or you can watch Jared and me play it. This afternoon, Jared and I took on a side quest and also visited a town in order to kinda give you a big, long look at the game. You'll see how brutal the game's world can be, as well as get a taste of, basically, every one of the game's mechanics. Here you go:

Quest should appear at about 11PM EST in the US. If you're following it on your Watch List via our app [Free], you'll get a notification when it drops.

  • marc0313

    Am I missing the awesomeness here? I'm kindof more excited for World War Z..

    • Maniacfive

      Think a lot of people are put off by WWZ iaps. I'm not slating it without playing it, but we all know this will be awesome. So it's easier to get excited about.

  • Eddy

    After trying to buy heroquest again just to find out it's price is through the roof this game is coming in at the perfect time

  • Ben Norvell

  • iammane

    This is awesome. To prep for this been playing Hunters 2 all week which is STILL a pretty cool game IMO. Nothing quite like sniping someone 10+ squares away

  • echo_pdx

    I think I've checked the app store about 18 times today on the off chance it should pop up early. I know it won't, but I check anyway. Check and check and check.

    ...is it out yet?

  • Game.PN

    If there was a "Dragonborn" in that game!!!!!!!

  • LA4k

    download it asap, guys, it's a bomb

  • Pendzel

    Europa need this! :)

    • MrSpud

      Why would a moon of jupiter want a videogame?! :P

  • Maniacfive

    I will stay up till midnight just to instabuy. I'll be too tired to play tonight. But what if a meteor destorys the App Store servers while I sleep and it can't be downloaded in the morning.

    Can't take that chance. I NEED this in my life.

  • MidianGTX

    This is such an obvious purchase it's almost stupid.

  • vicsark

    Hunters 2 from Rodeo Games was already awesome in combat mode and rpg elements. It just missed a bit more story backbone (short campaign, and random missions). This just looks perfect. And I've never played any Warhammer!

    • vicsark

      And I love how Brad almost finished the dungeon with all his dudes dead goblin meat lol :D

  • Tizz986

    Any type of multiplayer? If not, any planned?

  • armilla

    Definitely an insta-buy - very excited for this

  • ste86uk

    I love Warhammer but have only played table top and an old pc game. Downloading now and interested to see what strategy and RPG aspects this holds.

  • Endscrypt

    Yes! It up in the U.K

  • LA4k

    permadeath on hardcore difficulty! i love this game

  • grits

    I will spend $5

  • worldcitizen1919

    I bought it but regret it. This is way overhyped. Each to his own but I honestly can't see what all the hype is about. From the sound to the visuals to the gameplay there's nothing special here. I would give this a 3/10 or a 1/5 stars. Nothing new. Certainly nothing special in strategy or sound and visuals so if its a BRAND that attracts all the hype so be it but brand should not come into it.

    I think this game is only getting accolades because of the BRAND. It's and ordinary game nothing special at all.

    To me enjoyment and fun factor determine my score not hype or brand names. I had no fun and no immersion just boredom with this game. So objectively all I can say is the graphics and sound are nothing special and gameplay I personally found unintuitive and boring.

    What an atrocious way of forcing users to turn their iPads to access other menus. I have my ipad locked in landscape and I DON'T WANT to unlock it EVERY TIME I PLAY THIS GAME. What were they thinking. Innovation? CRAP. inconvenience more like it. But some people will even give an accolade to a major inconvenience and call it innovation. Bias is bias. That's wrong. You don't force users to change their ipad habits to accommodate one game.

    • wildperson

      Can you compare it to the Hunters series? They look remarkably similar, so I'm trying to justify buying this.

    • joaquin_ondamoon

      I don't understand why you purchased this game in the first place. I think the people who were waiting for this were A) Warhammer fans, and B) fans of the 'Hunter's series. You are obviously a fan of neither, so why make the purchase?
      While I was psyched for this release (being a big WH40K fan), after viewing the video, it seems to be 'Hunters' in 'WH' clothing. Which in and of itself isn't horrible, but I already have 'Hunters'. I like the game mechanic of turning the device to access the menu: seems like a cool idea. Is there anyone who has played both games who can give me an idea of the differences between the two?

      • toxiccheese

        I see nothing wrong with a non-fan trying something new. There was a chance he might actually love it, but turns out he didn't. Nothing wrong with that. Next time he will know that this genre of game isn't for him. I, however, will most likely be enjoying this for a good while!

  • worldcitizen1919

    I'm having a lot of problems with touch controls not responding. I'm having to tapp 4 times often to get an action to perform. So I tap on my guy then tap wife on the opponent nothing happens. Tap twice again then he shots. Same with healing. Tipped on my guy selected bandages tapped twice on injured person no response. Tapped twice again then helped.

  • worldcitizen1919

    I'm using brand new ipad 4th generation. No problems other games.

  • RickShaw

    This game looks pretty cool, although the combat seems a bit slow but, I might pick it up.

  • pinta_vodki

    Whoa, that vid was INTENSE, guys! Gotta buy!
