Surprise! There's another Warhammer game in the works. It's officially the one millionth to be announced in the past year. Ok, not really, but it kind of feels that way. This latest is a collaboration between Games Workshop and Roadhouse Interactive, and it's called Warhammer 40K: Carnage. What's interesting here is that Carnage isn't a strategy game, but it's a side-scrolling brawler. You'll play a Space Marine laying waste to Ork enemies using tons of weapons and gear and fighting across many familiar lands from the Warhammer universe. Here's some screens.

I've got to say, I'm definitely digging the idea of a side-scrolling action game with cool 3D graphics set in the Warhammer universe. However, Games Workshop has been so liberal about licensing out their property that just having their name attached to a project doesn't necessarily mean a good game will come from it. Hopefully Roadhouse Interactive come through with the finished product, which should be arriving sometime in May. Until then, you can join in on the discussion for Warhammer 40K: Carnage in our forums.

    If it is like the 2D Duke Nukem ios game I would be more than willing to have a bash. What I would really like is the Space Hulk of the nineties ported to ios. I would buy that in an instant.

    • Larni69

      I got very vexed about the troll mission that was un completable in Shadow of the Horned Rat but more often than not GW video games are generally good (okay, maybe not Blood Bowl).

      • BrianDavion

        that's changed over the last little bit when they've been handing lisences to anyone though. honestly since THQ went under there haven't been any TRUELY good 40k games. Storm of vengence was a joke

    • bigjack66

      Talk properly, you sound like an idiot!

      • djstout

        I couldn't understand a word

      • ste86uk

        The way he talks actually reminds me of a troll called Yhog on a MUD I use to play.

      What in God's name does this say? Even though I know it probably isn't I am going to assume this is a joke. I think it's for the best because if it isn't it is going to strip away the last bit

      What in God's name does this say? Even though I know it isn't I am going to assume the post is a joke. If I don't it will strip away the last remnants of hope I had that humanity will exist in a few hundred years.

        Chill, guys - he's evidently speaking in an Ork Boyz dialect. Which was vaguely amusing. Vaguely.

  • bcredonk

    Looks way better than the weird PvZ type Warhammer game released recently

  • bigjack66

    Looks half decent. Better than the other crap!

  • mothman99

    This looks good. One to watch, methinks.

  • Flare_TM

    Pass.

  • ste86uk

    Graphics look great, certainly adding this to the watch list.

  • hourglass

    When will we get a Dawn of War style game for iOS?

    • andrew9oh7

      Not for a long long time prolly

  • Maelwolf

    Could be good if the controls are smooth enough. Definitely getting my 40K fix lately. However, after SoV got so much hate despite being pretty enjoyable, I wouldn't be surprised if this game doesn't get slagged as well, after all it isn't DoW3...

    • BrianDavion

      I think the problem amounts to people want big major games and right now we seem to be getting crappy little 10 dollar "casual games"

  • lordyokomoto

    If a dev sees this.... Do a port of the PS1 space hulk please .......

    • ianlogsdon

      there is a 1st person deathwing themed space hulk title coming, no screens yet though.

  • SwithNova

    Finally a real war hammer coming to ios. Can't wait to try it out even if it's not the third person shooter hack n slash game I'm used to. looks good unlike the other game they just released what was it called?... Oh yes plants vs crap

  • joaquin_ondamoon

    This looks decent; I'd like to see some gameplay video & see it in action.
    What I'd really like to see is someone port over the excellent dual stick shooter WH40K: Kill Team, from XBox Arcade. That game kicks ass, and seems like a natural for iOS.

  • Cookies

    Cool. It's nice to have an actual action game for Warhammer.

  • elhawk3

    If this were anything like Kill Team could be remotely good.....
