Warhammer 40.000: Regicide: Neue Infos
Zum Warhammer 40.000 Schach-Videospiel Regicide gibt es neue Infos zum Spiel und zur Handlung.
A narrative-driven spin based on a time-honoured board game
Set in the Segmentum Obscurus, the story begins with the death-rattle of a proud Imperial world and the victorious warcry of its alien conquerors. The Orks live only to wage unending war, and know it is only a matter of time before the Imperial war machine responds to their invasion.
Regicide, the strategy game based on chess set in the classic Warhammer 40,000 Universe from Games Workshop is an adaptation of ‘Regicide’, a board game described from the Warhammer 40,000 universe with similarities to the M2-era chess; played by mankind for over thirty-eight thousand years. Regicide blends board-game strategy mechanics with dynamic tactical abilities.
Regicide set for launch in Q2 2015, is easy to learn, but difficult to master – think outside the board and explore a new take on the rules of traditional chess: command different races with unique abilities, fight for varied game objectives, and call in strikes from off the board as you face off in multiple game modes. Battle across a single-player Blood Angels’ campaign. Challenge opponents worldwide in both ‘Regicide’ and ‘classic’ matches online, with ELO-rated stats and several game modes.
Zur Handlung gibt es das Intro-Video zu sehen:
The frontier worlds of the Sargos Sector are no strangers to conflict. Once wracked by warp-anomalies and inhabited by adversarial forces, it was only placed under the heel of Imperial authority two thousand years ago. The capital world of Hethgar Prime was established and settled. Rich in resources, it occupied a strategic location and was well fortified. Regiments were raised on Hethgar to safeguard nearby worlds from aggression.
In two millennia, however, no dire threat approached them. Mankind flourished in relative peace. Much of the system’s military resources were eventually exported to aid in greater conflicts elsewhere. The garrison was spread thin. The great guns that aimed to the skies were largely unmanned.
When alien eyes once again fell upon the Imperial jewel of Hethgar and thought to take it for themselves there was little to stop them. As the skies fell in upon them, it was all the people of Hethgar could do to pray for deliverance. Any resistance was swiftly crushed by the invading forces.
But the final prayers of Hethgar were heard. From far across the blackness of space, Angels took heed of their plight.
They would arrive too late for salvation, but vengeance in the Emperor’s name is never overdue…
