sovlogoBack in December, Games Workshop and developer Eutechnyx announced a new game in the Warhammer universe for Steam and mobile devices called Warhammer 40k: Storm of Vengeance. While that initial announcement came with very few details other than it would be a "lane strategy" game, in late February Eutechnyx released a teaser trailer for Storm of Vengeance along with a few extra bits of info, one of which was a planned release date of March 27th. Today, the developer has sent word that Storm of Vengeance's release has been pushed back by just a week, and will now arrive on April 3rd. If you want a closer look at Storm of Vengeance than what was provided in the previously released teaser trailer, here's a brand new developer diary video to check out.

In addition to the new release date, Eutechnyx has announced a variety of downloadable content that will be available right alongside the game's launch. This includes new unit types like the jetpack-equipped Ork Stormboy, the powerful Dark Angel Dreadnought, and the Deathwing Terminator who can teleport in additional units to help in battle. Besides new unit types, there will also be new Ork skins available. Based on previously announced information, the base game of Storm of Vengeance will launch for $4.99 and it sounds like the DLC pack will run 99¢ each. If you're excited for Warhammer 40k: Storm of Vengeance, then sit tight, you'll just have to wait a bit longer for April 3rd.

    Is this just Plants vs Zombies: Warhammer edition?

      Lane strategy was around well before PvZ. Regardless, this looks to have a more active system than PvZ which was simply defense. From what I could see, your units advance forward to attack the enemies' front line instead of just being planted in the ground waiting to be mowed down.

      If you ever played custom games in StarCraft 2, it is very similar to Nexus Wars. Essentially you are building certain structures on your side of the field that allow you to generate specific units, abilities, and upgrades, while on your opponent is doing the same on their side. A major thing SoV brings to the table is that once you spawn your units, many have activated abilities and attacks, offering some degree of control on the field as well as off.

    Man after Warhammer I will be eating this up for sure.

    Eutechnyx, masters in developing boring games.

    "Finally the devlopers of masterpieces such as Ride to Hell Retribution are reskinning one of their older games and slapping the Warhammer name on it! I can't wait!" said no one ever.

    • Maelwolf

      That's like saying Blizzard just reskinned Warcraft 1 to make StarCraft 2, you have to ignore the major alterations and improvements.

  • gamer456ism

    Guys this is just a reskin of one of their old games. I
    They also made great games like Ride to Hell: Retribution (sarcasm).

  • Joe Welke

    Fat bloke seems earnest. This game seems boring. I was expecting something with more strategy and freedom of movement. This... is bad. I just can't see Orks and Dark Angels trudging toward one another in lanes. Bah!

  • Maglor

    Thank God. I'm not able to instabuy it. It's rip off I think.

  • NinjaKitteh

    Garbage. Utter trash. What a waste to slap the 40k label on this refuse.

  • Maelwolf

    Being playing the beta on Steam. Haven't had much of a chance to try the new units yet. The Dreadnaught seems like basically a huge, ultimate play that costs a ton to put out, and then drains your resources as it moves forward. Stormboyz on the other hand are just chaotic. You can play Stormboyz anywhere on the map, even at the opponents end, but half the time they crash or blow up, doing damage to everything nearby. Overall, interesting additions to what is turning out to be a pretty addictive game.

    I didn't realize the dude from "American Pickers" made iOS games.

  • bigjack66

    Still sucks!

  • joaquin_ondamoon

    Just, no.

  • bored2death

    Seriously? You call yourself a big war hammer fan? Then why does this look like plants vs zombies? Why not an rts like a dawn of war only scaled down? Do you really think the emperors finest : the space marines would be faithfully portrayed in a lane defense game? Really? The poster boys of 40k renowned for they're ability to own their enemies despite overwhelming odds...and yet you have them strutting down lanes...this game should be purged on the count of heresy.

    One day I will get my Warhanmer / Warhanmer 40K RPG that has been done right. Or, actually, a playable version of Necromunda which I think would be perfect. Think X-Com but with Necromunda instead

    So glad you guys feel the same, this does look like the cure for insomnia lol such boring linear gameplay, so sick of it, give us more real games!! This is why im yearning for more console ports, because of crap like this being churned out! Im not what you call a hard core gamer so this even sucks for me!!
