Check out the game’s original launch trailer below.
2018 Nottingham, UK, 22nd November, Legendary Games announce the launch of Mordheim: Warband Skirmish, based on Games Workshop®’s Mordheim™ on Nintendo Switch.
Mordheim: Warband Skirmish will be the first Warhammer licensed game on Nintendo Switch eShop. A premium version of the highly user rated (averaging a rating of 4.2/5) smart device application, it will launch worldwide on the 26th November retailing at £19.99, $24.99 and €24.99.
Players explore the ruins of the City of Mordheim, clash with other scavenging warbands and collect Wyrdstone – valuable shards from the comet that destroyed the city. The Switch version will include accelerated graphics and four factions to play from the start: Skaven – Skulking sinister rat men who need Wyrdstone to thrive and the three principle human mercenary protagonists Reiklanders, Middenheimers, Marienburgers each representing one of the factions pitted against each other in a brutal civil war over who should sit in the throne as Emperor. More factions will follow in future updates as a DLC, including:
Undead – Agents of the Vampire Counts, helping their bid to control the living
Witch Hunters – Agents of the Grand Theologonist who will burn first and ask questions later
Sisters of Sigmar – The only faction with remotely honourable intentions
Cult of the Possessed – Men who have turned to the dark powers of salvation
CEO Ewan Lamont said “Mario this isn’t, the Warhammer world is not cutesy and cuddly it is a brutal universe and it doesn’t get more dangerous than a ruined city teaming with rival warbands and monstrous horrors. A core game feature is permanent death and permanent injury!”
