Warhammer 40,000 is returning to mobile devices and PC, but this time as a turn-based collectible card game. It was announced today that HeroCraft has partnered with Games Workshop for Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf, a free-to-play game that uses collectible cards to drive on-screen actions of 3D characters.
"Lead your Space Wolves into fierce battles in glorious, interactive 3D environments," the game's description reads. "Play your cards and watch the real time action unfold on screen."
Space Wolf includes pre-defined deck-building templates, while also giving you the freedom to build your own deck to fit your own strategy and tactics. The "epic campaign" features branching storylines that pit you against the World Bearers, fanatical and deadly traitors who serve the chaos gods, and Necrons, creatures awoken from slumber to claim the galaxy.
“HeroCraft have presented us with a unique and exciting vision for a game based on this most evocative and barbaric chapter of Space Marines – the Space Wolves.” said Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop. “Given that, their clear passion for the IP, and their experience in the market, we are only too happy to be working with them on this project.”
“We are all very excited to work with Games Workshop on this project, particularly our development team, who are not only games industry veterans but also Warhammer 40,000 fans who know the series well. As a gamer myself, I'm also excited about the mix of tactical turn based play using my own deck of cards to lead my Space Wolves to victory – I can't wait to play it!” added Alexey Sazonov, Sales and Marketing Director of HeroCraft.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is due out in 2014 for iOS, Android, and PC.
