More On: Mordheim: City of the Damned

Developer Rogue Factor and publisher Focus Home Interactive have unveiled the next video adaptation of a Games Workshop series, Mordheim: City of the Damned. The game takes place in the Warhammer universe, in particular the Empire city ruins of Mordheim. Gameplay incorporates a variety of elements including role-playing, turn-based tactical combat, and detailed unit customization. Players are tasked with recruiting units, equipping gear, and advancing their warband.

As well, the game incorporates a death system in which characters are lost forever after falling in battle. Environments can be used in combat to the player's advantage with placement of characters and even set up ambushes. Loot can be found scattered about ruins or taken from fallen enemies.

The game supports a singleplayer campaign in addition to various multiplayer modes. Mordheim: City of the Damned will be available in late 2014.
