Snowprint Studios, who have put out the excellent Legend of Solgard a few years back and more recently Rivengard, have partnered up with Games Workshop to develop a new tactical mobile game in the Warhammer universe. Titled Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus, the game is centered around “intense fast-paced skirmishes in PVE campaigns and tightly competitive PVP battles, as well as massively collaborative guild boss fights." An original story written by renowned Warhammer writer Matt Forbeck will tell the tales across multiple factions in the Warhammer Universe, including Ultramarines, Necrons, Adepta Sororitas, Black Legion and “many more to be revealed." You can catch a glimpse at early alpha gameplay as well as explanations of the game’s mechanics from game director Wilhelm Osterberg in the following “first look" video.
I am far from any sort of Warhammer expert, but my man’s giant stack of Warhammer tabletop games and desk littered with miniatures gives me confidence that this is a passion project led by a huge fan of the IP. I can say, even in my uneducated opinion, that I’m a big fan of the art style in the game. Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus is planned for release in 2022 and I’d wager there will be a soft launch in various territories ahead of then too. Snowprint says they’ll be talking a lot more about the game as its development continues so check out the game’s official website where you can find links to all of the various social media accounts to stay on top of all the latest news.
