Over a year ago, back in August of 2013, developer HeroCraft announced a card-based tactical strategy game set in the Warhammer universe called Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. The initial screens looked great, and the following December a brief trailer was released that gave us a glimpse at the game in action. A lot of time has passed since then, but today HeroCraft has finally announced a worldwide release date for Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. It’s coming next Tuesday, October 28th. Here’s a brand new gameplay trailer.
Late last month, Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf soft-launched in a couple of small region App Stores so HeroCraft could test things out. Naturally, people in our forums were right on top of the soft-launch, and many downloaded and tried that early version. So far impressions in that thread have been largely positive, with the biggest complaint being the game’s internet connection requirement. Also, the game is free to play which will turn off some, but so far it seems its implementation is pretty fair. The best news is that despite that initial soft-launch version being iPad only, the worldwide release will support iPhones as well.
If you like Warhammer and/or card-based tactical strategy games like the Metal Gear Ac!d series, then mark October 28th on your calendar and get ready for Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf’s worldwide release.
