Another week, another Games Workshop title is announced for PC. The amount of recent Games Workshop title announcement initially surprised me; I always thought of Games Workshop as having kept a tight hold of their licenses… but it turned out I’d just forgotten stuff like Mark of Chaos, Final Liberation, Fire Warrior, and Chaos Gate. Mostly for good reason.
Anyway! This week’s Games Workshop-licensed title is HeroCraft’s Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf, a turn-based tactical game with CCG elements. I’m… not quite sure how it works, but you use “collectible cards to drive the on-screen actions of the 3D characters.” Which sounds a bit like the exquisite Card Hunter, I suppose.
As the Space Wolves (or a Space Wolf), you fight a campaign with branching storylines against both the Chaos Word Bearers and the Necrons, with a variety of character paths to follow, cards to unlock and evolve, decks to build. It’s a free-to-play game, so you’ll at least be able to try it out without shelling out any actual money.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is due out in 2014 on PC, as well as Android and iOS devices. Screenshots below.Related to this article

When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
