Rogue Factor and Focus Home Interactive have teamed up once more, this time to bring Necromunda to the digital world.
Necromunda: Underhive Wars, as the adaptation is named, will be a turn-based tactical RPG in which gangs fight it out over resources, power, and ancient technology in the hellish sub-city of the Underhive. And considering that Necromunda is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, “hellish” really does take on a very particular meaning.
That, unfortunately, is basically all that’s currently known; there isn’t even any confirmation of whether this’ll be a PC release or not. If it follows in Mordheim‘s footsteps, Necromunda will wind up with an Early Access release before probably making a transition to other platforms, but… well, for all I know, it’s going to be an iOS game. (Please don’t be an iOS game.) Edit: It’s confirmed for PC, yay.
We’ll apparently be hearing more from a Focus event taking place on the 1st and 2nd of February. Until then, all I can really do is wonder is what the hell took so long for this game to get adapted… and maybe debate whether to play Escher, Delaque, or another house.Related to this article

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning 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.
