NAMCO BANDAI GAMES SHIPS WARHAMMER: BATTLE MARCH™ FOR XBOX 360 and pc
Immerse Yourself in Games Workshop’s Renowned Fantasy World, Build Fearsome Armies and Lead your Forces to Victory in Massive Real-Time Strategy Battles
Leading video games publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced that Warhammer®: Battle March™ for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Warhammer®: Mark of Chaos™ - Battle March™ for the PC have shipped to retailers throughout North America. Delivering deep, tactics-based real-time strategy action to the Xbox 360 and introducing new content to the critically acclaimed Warhammer: Mark of Chaos for the PC, Battle March brings Games Workshop’s legendary fantasy world to life with brutal combat on a massive scale, a wide range of customizable units and support for online skirmishes.
Warhammer: Battle March on the Xbox 360 includes the original content from Warhammer: Mark of Chaos as well as more units and armies, new console-specific control schemes and support for online play via the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network. Eliminating the tedious resource management and base building that make the real-time strategy genre so daunting, the game puts the spotlight squarely on the thrill of each battle, delivering an experience that is uniquely well-suited to console play. Built around the framework of Games Workshop’s renowned fantasy world, players will be able to control six unique armies – the Empire, Chaos, Skaven, High Elves, Dark Elves and Orcs & Goblins – as they experience the different perspectives of each faction’s quest for survival and triumph in a world torn apart by constant war. On Xbox LIVE, up to four players can engage in massive multi-army clashes in head-to-head and team-based modes of play.
Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March for the PC builds upon the original game’s tactical foundation with an all-new single player campaign focusing on the Orcs & Goblins, new units for each faction and a massive, persistent new online World Domination mode. As players succeed in World Domination mode, their chosen faction will gain more influence over the world of Warhammer, encouraging gamers to work in unison with other online players to gain more territory and achieve total supremacy.
Warhammer: Battle March for the Xbox 360 and Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March for the PC carry suggested retail prices of $59.99 and $29.99, respectively. Both games are rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB.
