ARMAGEDDON MUST NOT BE LOST

"Armageddon, a world whose name has become a byword for war and destruction on a massive scale…" -Lord Commander Solar Eugenian

There is no peace amongst the stars... It is the 41st millennium and there is only war!

We live in the Imperium of Mankind, the greatest empire the galaxy has ever known. Millions of planets united in their adoration for the Emperor.

But we are not alone…

A massive space hulk is drifting towards Armageddon, and the planet is threatened by the war hungry brutal Orks. Welcome to the battlefield!

Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is a fantasy war game set in the Second War of Armageddon. You take the role of defending the planet as the Imperium of Man against the Ork invaders. Throughout the campaign you will also be joined by three chapters of Space Marines: the Salamanders, Blood Angels and the Ultramarines.

In this hex-based, turn-based strategy game, players will lead the Imperial forces of the Armageddon Steel Legion and Space Marines from a variety of Chapters against the Ork invasion through over 30 scenarios, on the hostile terrain of the planet and its gigantic Hive Cities.

The game features a complex plot, involving known characters from the Warhammer 40,000 universe and while advancing through the campaign, the player will have the ability to carryover his core force from scenario to scenario.

Players fight alongside Commissar Yarrick and Commander Dante against the cunning Ork Warboss Ghazghkull Thraka and carry over battle-hardened veterans from scenario to scenario, using their experience and upgrading their equipment.

On top all this extensive modding options are available through a powerful and easy-to-use game editor.

FEATURES

Large branching campaign with 30 major scenarios, plus additional 5 tutorial scenarios that explore the story in detail.

Hundreds of hours of gameplay fun with huge replay value and several difficulty settings.

The game portrays the Second War for Armageddon in great detail, from the initial Ork landings to the final liberation of the planet.

Fight alongside Commissar Yarrick and Commander Dante against the cunning Ork Warboss Ghazghkull Thraka.

A complex plot, which can develop during a mission, right in the middle of battle, creating an engaging story line with unexpected twists.

Meet several iconic characters like Inquisitor Horst, Governor Von Strab and many more, who will guide you through an epic scenario based adventure all with their unique voice-overs.

Players lead Imperial troops of the Armageddon Steel Legion, with supporting assets from a number of Space Marine chapters against the ferocious Orks.

Carry over battle-hardened veterans from scenario to scenario, using their experience and upgrading their equipment and weaponry.

Detailed combat model with custom terrain, cover and morale effects.

Guide your troops on Armageddon`s hostile ash wastes, through treacherous volcanic canyons, over acid polluted rivers, through dense jungles and through massive Hive cities.

300+ unit types representing Armageddon Steel Legion, the Orks, Blood Angels, Ultramarines and Salamanders Space Marine chapters and even Titans!

Multiple weapon systems per unit, each with their unique stats and graphical effects.

20 different unit stats plus many unique special traits and abilities.

I think the scale is the worst part of these screenshots. Titans should not be only marginally larger than an ork. Hopefully you can edit the scale of units in the editor. Is that something that will make/break the game? No, I suppose not.

The game looking like something that came out 10 years ago though? Definitely.

Seriously, why can't we get a decent looking 40k game? The last one that was worth anything was Space Marine, which knocked the brutality, the setting and the overall feeling out of the park.

This? I have games on my mobile phone that has better graphics than this. Sigh.

Yeah, I totally agree. When Space Marine came out, I felt like FINALLY, here is a game that does the IP justice. Has not happened since. I played the Space Hulk game, and it's Space Hulk. Decent, but not really what I want.

Yes, it looks pretty cool, but I'm not seeing many details about the game at this point. I'm also a horrible chess player, unfortunately. I suppose it would be a unique way of honing those skills, though. Browsing the gallery, every single character appears to be very serious about killing, which is pretty fitting for the universe. None of them look goofy or overdone.
