Mordheim: City of the Damned - because sooner or later a Warhammer Fantasy game is going to be good, right?
From the 'this time for sure' files, Focus Home Interactive has roped first-time Canadian developer into working on a PC version of the Mordheim, Games Workshop's fantasy skirmish game.
Mordheim: City of the Damned will be a turn-based tactical game, where players form gangs (including gangs of giant, mutant rats), loot bodies, and strive to dominate the ruined city of Mordheim will gathering the arcane substance known as Wyrdstone.
It's an interesting move. Mordheim was a big release at the time, a full-boxed game complete with miniatures and a whole range of add-ons and expansions. However, it's now one of GW's 'Specialist Games' - which is pretty much the term for projects that GW would rather no longer support or put too much effort into selling.
That said, a lot of people still play Mordheim, and based as it is off of the popular Warhammer Fantasy setting, it comes with a complete setting and backstory, not to mention some great art assets.
The game's coming late this year.
