The turn-based tactical gameplay pits you against rival gangs in brutal gunfights, taking place in huge, vertical environments. Necromunda is a planet covered in poisonous ash wastes, forcing its population to live in Hive Cities, massive man-made structures built up over thousands of years only to serve just one purpose: provide to the Imperium.

In Hive Primus, the rich and noble live above the clouds in the Spire while the poorest and worst-off live in a massive and forgotten subterranean metropolis, the Underhive, where criminals fight in a perpetual gang war for its control.

Command one of Necromunda’s iconic gangs, embracing anarchy, violence and death in an endless war to dominate this hellish place. Pick between the Eschers, an all-female gang who have made their name through selling drugs and chemicals throughout the Underhive, or the Goliaths, hulking warriors worshipping physicality and using strength-enhancing drugs to dominate in battle. Others gangs we will be unveiled in the coming months.

Compose your gang carefully, based on the style of warfare you want to wage. Every fighter is highly customisable in loadout and appearance, and has access to a career which unlocks further skills, traits, weapons, and visual elements.

Battle in the vertiginous environnments of the Underhive, use raised walkways to push a high ground advantage, set traps for unwitting victims, and ambush your foes to force them into bloody melee engagements. With each battle won, your gang members grow in power, earning more powerful skills and loot, but beware! Even victories will result in casualties. Deaths and injuries are permanent, and you’ll need to live with the consequences of every battle.

For an even deeper challenge, Conquest Mode offers an endless campaign featuring 4X mechanics between the turn-based battles. Fight over key territory to take complete control and prove your gang is the most fearsome on Necromunda! Then bring Take your unique gangs online, challenging other players in competitive multiplayer, and claim the Underhive for yourself!

Necromunda: Underhive Wars comes releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Great to see some details about the game, looking forward to finding out more!

So... one question... when i can play it? 🔫

Glad to hear that territory conquest will be a key game mode. Looking forward to it being elaborated on, stuff like will territory have an upgrade system, will there be persistent enemy gangs, gang sizes, how the campaign works, what kind of missions will be available, etc.

Looking good so far.

the voice over gave me a mad max beyond thunderdome vibe

It's beyond a pipedream, but oh how nice would it be to have cross-platform compatability?! I'm a PC player through and through, but my best friends have always been console players and since we all live at opposite ends of Ireland these days, we rarely get the chance to meet up. Being able to go toe to toe with them in this across XBONE and PS4 would be brilliant. We all used to play Necro and 40K back in the day, so it would be a nice revival for us.

That would be cool, but it's not something they really get final say over. It's not just technology, consoles don't want to share customers with eachother. They want all your friends to own the same system you own, their system.

That just won't gonna happen, and they'll get only a bunch of dissatisfied customers in the end.

That's what they've been doing for the last decades though, doesn't seem to have failed for consoles yet.
At best Xbox will cross server with PC.

True. Technologically it's entirely possible - not trivial (for a game of this magnitude) but doable: if the same game can be played on vastly different PC rigs, it can be played on consoles and PC too. Hell, I've personally created architecture that allowed iOS, Android and PC games to play together: it required some planning, but other than that - no real problem. Would probably have worked for consoles too, if that had been among our target platforms. Not doing it is a business decision, either because it's undesirable or because it's deemed not worth the effort. Usually some combination of both.

Sure, but not dissatisfied enough to force them to change their minds.
