Fancy helping balance and polish Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon before it launches later this year? If so, developer Slitherine wants you to sign up for the beta.
Be warned, though – it might not be for everyone. Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is a hex-based strategy game, and Slitherine generally makes deeply complex wargames. That said, Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is also due out on iOS, so… maybe it won’t be too complex? Okay, no, it probably will be.
Still, it looks like something a bit special. Set during the Second War for Armageddon, you’ll lead the Imperial forces – composed of the local Imperial Guard, plus a mix of Blood Angels, Salamanders, and Ultramarines chapters of Space Marines – against the Ork invasion of Warboss Grazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka. It’s a turn-based hex-based strategy game with a branching 30-mission campaign, a complex storyline, experience and equipment carry over between missions, over 100 unit types, etc. There’s a lot of stuff, basically, and it sounds kinda neat.
It’s also got separate maps for Slitherine’s PBEM++ multiplayer and mod support through a game editor, which is always nice to hear.
If you want to sign up, you can do so over here. Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is due out later this year.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. 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.
