Warhammer 40k Space Wolf (artwork 001)

Games Workshop is adamant to take over Apple’s iOS platform by storm. Its Warhammer Quest for the iPhone and iPad was released earlier this year to generally positive reviews (read Lory’s take).

But more Warhammer-branded games are scheduled for release on iOS devices in the upcoming months.

Back in August, they announced Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf, a new title coming to the App Store in 2014. And now, another upcoming Warhammer iOS game has been announced, called Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Vengeance.

Both Storm of Vengeance and Space Wolf are due in 2014 and feature a selection of characters from the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Space Wolf, developed by Hero Craft, is a free-to-play, turn-based tactical combat game.

As for Storm of Vengeance, it’s being developed by Eutechnyx of the Ninja Cats vs Samurai Dogs fame and tells the story of “a pivotal moment in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, during the legendary planetary conflict on Piscina IV,” according to a recent press release.

More on both titles after the break…

Pitched as a lane strategy game set in the dark, gothic universe of Warhammer 40,000, Games Workshop says that Storm of Vengeance features two of its most cherished characters, Grand Master Belial and Ork Warlord Ghazghkull Thraka.

Storm of Vengeance offers the player the chance to command the tenacious defence of the planet with only 100 Dark Angel Space Marines, or attempt it’s annihilation using the cunning of the Ork Waaagh! and their telly-porta technology.

The game is due for release on PC and mobile devices in the first quarter of 2014.

As for Space Wolf, this free to play turn-based tactical combat game is based on the collectible cards concept (see the image above and screenies below), spiced up with a bunch of 3D characters set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

Here’s a trailer.

Hero Craft would only say this:

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf will be a new turn-based tactical combat video game, using collectible cards to drive the on-screen actions of the 3D characters.

From what can be gleaned from the official press materials, Space Wolf will challenge you to command a pack of Space Wolves and lead them to fight their intergalactic adversaries. Based on customizable decks of cards, you’ll be able to unlock new weapons, tactics, bonuses and other perks allowing you to boost your team’s stats.

The screenshots look promising.

Space Wolf should launch during the second quarter of 2014 on iOS, Android and PC.

In addition to the already-released Warhammer Quest game, Games Workshop has a nice Warhammer-themed companion app in the App Store. Called Warhammer 40,000: Psychic Powers, it’s basically your guide through all of the psychic powers from the official Warhammer 40,000 rulebook.

    “Collectable cards”

    Which means the game is going to be infested with IAP and the only way to progress in the game will be with IAP.

    • Nekrim

      And the game itself looks like a quickly made cash-in because they seem to have re-used assets from the Dawn of War 2 game.
