Necromunda: Underhive Wars is the first video game adaptation of the Games Workshop tabletop game, with a unique setting and perspective on the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Created by Rogue Factor, developers of Mordheim: City of the Damned, the game blends fast-paced tactical combat with RPG elements and deep unit customization.
Today, go deep into the rusted caves and corridors of the Underhive with three new screenshots showing warfare between the rival Escher and Goliath gangs, in preparation for the game’s release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.
The turn-based tactical gameplay pits you against rival gangs in brutal gunfights across 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 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 perpetual gang wars for control.
Command one of Necromunda’s iconic gangs, embracing anarchy, violence and death in an endless war for control to dominate this hellish place. As seen in today’s screenshots, pick between the Eschers, an all-female gang who 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.
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 vertical environments 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! Once you’re ready, bring your unique gangs online, challenging other players in competitive multiplayer in a struggle to claim the Underhive for yourself!
