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.

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.

Warhammer 40k: Regicide might be what some of you guys are looking for, if you like playing chess :grin:.

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.

Yeah, Regicide was just revealed a month or two ago, so there isn't too much information about it yet. I don't think a release date has been given yet either. Still, it's something to keep track of as far as warhammer games go. I'm also not very good at chess, but I might try it anyway :p.

I think it's playing to the nostalgia of the Panzer General generation.

And if it's like a fiver, then it's not the end of the world, is it? On the other hand, if they want more than, say, a tenner, they can fuck right off.

Do they just bank on the fact that there are 40k fans who will drop an absurd amount of cash on something just because it's part of the franchise? I think so, yeah! That's crazy. I imagine that's about how much you guys pay for modern console games in the UK?
