Mordheim: City of the Damned Early Access Coming Soon

While there aren’t many concrete details about the game yet, Mordheim: City of the Damned is slowly making it’s way out to the public. Set in the world of Warhammer, this new turn-based tactical RPG is set up to be available on Steam Early Access soon. In addition to that, they shared some awesome new screens in preparation for the big day.

The game features four warbands from the Warhammer universe—Mercenaries of the Empire, Possessed, Sisters of Sigmar, and Skaven—for you to choose from and lead into battle. The game will feature both single- and multi-player battles, with solid progressions for players. You can recruit new units and equip them with new gear in between battles, and they will gain experience and level up. However, beware—your units can be hurt in battle and lose limbs or lives. And they don’t come back.

I'm a pretty chill guy. Huge video game fan, but a bigger anime fan. I also love to write - obviously.

    Super cool . Always wanted to try this one. Wonder if it’s gonna be more of a straight-up conversion of the board game, or something beyond.

    From the dev blog:

    We must also learn to let go when we convert some of the aspects of the tabletop game to the video game. If it doesn’t fit at all and there is no way we can have it make sense, we must drop it or else the quality of the game will suffer and the Player will notice how much we struggled to force an element into the game that should have been discarded. However, most of the time we manage to adapt everything so don’t get your torches and pitchfork out!

    To some, adaptations and modifications of rules will mean deception, but it shouldn’t! Since we are not replicating the tabletop game as it is into a digital version with 3D graphics, the players should keep an open minded view of the game and see it as something new to explore and enjoy. If the players approach the game with the idea that we keep the spirit and core of Mordheim intact and we adapted whatever didn’t fit, they will enjoy the game much more than if they hope it will be a straight copy of the table top version.
