Mordheim: City of the Damned unveiled with screenshots
Focus Home Interactive and Rogue Factor today proudly unveil the first video game adaptation of Games Workshop's cult classicMordheim. Set in the Warhammer world's decimated Empire city, Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game where you lead warbands into bloody and lethal skirmishes. The game blends RPG elements, fast-paced tactical combat and intricate unit customization in a time wrought by chaos and rivalry where only the strongest survive.
After the Comet of Sigmar crashed on Mordheim, the City of Damned turned into a terrifying battlefield where rival warbands fight fiercely for the control of key neighborhoods, looking for glory and fortune by acquiring the very valuable Wyrdstone fragments.
Pick your warbands from iconic Mordheim factions - Sisters of Sigmar, Possessed, Skaven, Mercenaries from the Empire, and many more - and lead your troops to battle. Recruit new units, equip them with enhanced gear. Evolve and customize your warband with the experience gained from each successful mission, transforming them into a terrifying force on the battlefield.
Devise the best strategy to annihilate your rivals. If you fail, some of your units might lose a limb... or worse. Keep in mind that in Mordheim: City of the Damned, a dead unit is lost forever! Consider the environment when formulating your battle strategy, exploiting the unique buildings, ruins or the layout of the streets. Deploy your troops carefully and anticipate the actions of your adversaries to set up ambushes! Organize ingenious battle plans where the talents of your units will be as important as your own luck during key moments of combat.
Loot items and weapons hidden in the ruins, or steal those of fallen opponents. Survive the dangers that abound in the City of the Damned and collect as many Wyrdstones as you can, but remain ever vigilant. Mordheim is one of the most treacherous places in the Warhammer world!
In these epic battles where fame and glory await, your strategy will definitely be your best ally! Visit the four corners of the City of the Damned to complete multiple missions in the solo campaign, or challenge other players in enthralling multiplayer modes.
Riches and infamy await you late 2014 in Mordheim: City of the Damned!

In that short period, EA tried to launch new IP's, but for some reason, they weren't very succesfull. (2 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Dead Space 1 was a good start but with way too much backtracking. Dead Space 2 was better, but was less tension. DS3 was last shot at trying to make it into a profitable franchise. (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: That doesn't really make a lot of sense in the context of GTA:O because all of the core content is free, but selling currency is how they make money. (3 Hours ago)
Dead Space 1 and 2 were great I agree. 3 shouldn't have killed that franchise. RIP Visceral (3 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Rockstar didn't share any information on the new edition. Just that it's for current gen and PS4 pro and X1X (4 Hours ago)
@droezelke: what are they adding to it? all the online stuff? so it's just all unlocked from the get-go? (4 Hours ago)
