Back in October 2014 we reported on a new Warhammer 40,000 game heading our way at some point called Regicide. Games Workshop has now released a Collector's Edition for Warhammer 40,000: Regicide as well as a new trailer to check out which shows what the gameplay will look like.
If you missed our previous coverage of Warhammer 40,000: Regicide, this is essentially Games Workshop's idea of Chess, except for the fact it takes place in the Warhammer 40K universe and has animated Chess pieces. If you are a fan of the franchise then you know that this means there is also a lot of guns involved. This will be a turn-based strategy game not too dissimilar from how Chess is played. It isn't completely like Chess since you can do things like calling in an airstrike and casting spells. There is a Blood Angels single-player campaign available at launch as well as cross-platform multiplayer.
There will be two types of game modes available for players to choose from:
- Regicide: where you "plan an attack and command your soldiers through multiple phases of combat."
- Classic: where you "sharpen your tactics based on traditional chess rules, brutally executing violent kills in diverse battlefield terrains."
The interesting thing about these Collector's Editions is that there is actually a selection of different bundles to choose from, each one consisting of a variety of different physical goods. No matter which one you choose though, every bundle also comes with an in-dev game key that grants in-development access to the game when it goes live. They also come with a set of high-quality art prints of iconic characters from the Warhammer 40K universe. All the apparel in the bundles was designed by Warhammer 40,000 artist Stefan Kopinski.
Of course these bundles are for the PC version of the game but we figured since it is also coming to Android, there is a chance a few of you might also grab the PC version, especially since it has cross-platform multiplayer. You can check out all the different Collector Edition Bundles over on the official Warhammer 40K store. There is still no word as to when this will be released for Android, only that it will be after the PC version's launch. Until more details are released, enjoy the new trailer below. The gameplay and visuals look quite good
