Games Workshop’s Mordheim getting the digital treatment

Games Workshop’s Mordheim getting the digital treatment

Playable races include all of the basic races featured in the original Mordheim.

Games Workshop’s cult classic specialist game Mordheim is getting its own digital version with Mordheim: City of the Damned.

The game will be a turn-based strategy game where players lead small bands of warriors into skirmishes in a blend of RPG and tactical combat gameplay.

The miniatures-based war game Mordheim is based on Games Workshop’s highly successful Warhammer franchise. Instead of fielding large armies, players would build small gangs that would then level up and grow depending on their performance in battle.

Mordheim: City of the Damned sounds to be faithful to the game’s setting with warbands squabbling over Wyrdstone fragments in the ruins of the ruined city in the same way as the tabletop game.

The digital version will include playable gangs from the Skaven, the Empire, the Possessed and the Sisters of Sigmar with more factions to follow.

The game is being published by Focus Home Interactive, the independent French studio that was also behind the digital rendition of Games Workshop’s fantasy football game Blood Bowl. The company also has Cities XL, TrackMania and Farming Simulator in its portfolio.

Mordheim: City of the Damned is scheduled for a late 2014 release.

Several games in Games Workshop’s back-catalogue have made the transition to video games in recent years. Space Hulk, Warhammer Quest, Talisman and the aforementioned Blood Bowl have all seen a digital release on various platforms.

My thoughts exactly. I actually spoke with the marketting manager from Firaxis about this and had a couple of replies from the lead dev about doing such a project, they love the idea.

I'm hoping to get stuck in with some modding work this summer to make some custom maps with a bit more "verticality" for MP within the base game and changing some basic variables (points systems). Go on from there with character models and textures.

The fundamentals are already in the XCOM game; line of sight, turn-based, points, skills, % hit, damage, critical wounds, load-outs, reloads, cover, list goes on and on.

Of all the games that they should bring out, Necromunda is one that I see that could absolutely storm the turn-based gaming scene if done right.
