HeroCraft and Games Workshop are partnering together to bring Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf to mobile devices and PC. The new turn-based tactical combat game is due out for iOS, Android, and PC in 2014.
“HeroCraft have presented us with a unique and exciting vision for a game based on this most evocative and barbaric chapter of Space Marines – the Space Wolves.” said Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop. “Given that, their clear passion for the IP, and their experience in the market, we are only too happy to be working with them on this project.”
Using collectible cards to drive the on-screen actions of 3D characters, Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf features an epic campaign with branching storylines that take you deep into hostile environments where you’ll combat World Bearers, fanatical and deadly traitors who serve the chaos gods, and Necrons, a species that has awoken from slumber to claim the galaxy. Space Wolf includes pre-defined deck-building templates, but also allows players to build customized decks for unique strategy and tactics.
“We are all very excited to work with Games Workshop on this project, particularly our development team, who are not only games industry veterans but also Warhammer 40,000 fans who know the series well. As a gamer myself, I’m also excited about the mix of tactical turn based play using my own deck of cards to lead my Space Wolves to victory – I can’t wait to play it!” says Alexey Sazonov, Sales and Marketing Director of HeroCraft.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf will be released as a free-to-play game in 2014.
