New 40k videogame!

Quote:
Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command marks the first time that the brutal, war-ravaged world of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe will be playable on the Nintendo DS. Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command features fast, action-packed combat through turn-based strategy and an engaging, authentic single-player storyline.

Gamers play as the elite Space Marines of the Ultramarines chapter and strive to combat the encroaching evil of the ruthless and daemonic influenced Chaos Space Marines through 13 cinematically-tied missions. With a robust multiplayer mode featuring 9 unique missions, gamers will team up and go head-to-head with other gamers worldwide as either the Imperium of Man or Chaos Space Marines, ensuring hours of unique replayability.

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command will also fully utilize all the portable functionality of the Nintendo DS, including the dual-screen and stylus, bringing the Warhammer 40,000 universe to life on handheld.

* Compelling single player game consisting of 13 unique missions

* 9 unique multiplayer maps for Local or Global games, with small, medium and large map variants to cater for games from 2 to 8 players

* Fully destructible, real time 3D battlefields mean that no two games will be the same

* Pick from two Space Marine chapters or two Chaos Space Marine Legions to play as in Multiplayer games, in battles between Imperium vs. Imperium, Forces of Chaos vs. Forces of Chaos, or Imperium vs. Forces of Chaos

* Over 20 ranged and close combat weapons taken directly from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, including the Bolter, Plasma Gun, Chainsword and Power Fist




thoughts anyone?

Blood for the Dual Screen!

I hope they invest enough time and money in it for it to be good, and not just a crappy spin off. Got a release date, cccp_one?

Et Curo Quod?

That's cool as hell. Too bad it won't be for my psp.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I was absolutely thrilled when I first heard of this. My budget for DS games is strained as it is! I do wish that there were more than guys in power armor present, though.

Sweet. If is does indeed come out for the psp, I will be all over it. Any ideas when I should start looking for it?

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Huzzah! I shall smite the unclean! I shall destroy the blight from the Emperor's dominion!

W00t. This game is going to pwn. I'm going to try to get it when it comes out.

Can someone post release dates please?

Beware of the black mage. He killed the Jolly Green Giant in one hit.
