Rodeo Games Launching Unreal Engine 4-Powered Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch This Week

about X hours ago from

Rodeo Games, the studio behind the faithful of Games Workshop board game Warhammer Quest, is readying its first Unreal Engine 4 title. Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch launches on iOS devices this week.

Like Warhammer Quest and Rodeo’s successful original IP Hunters, Deathwatch is a turn-based strategy. Players will assemble a team of space marines by completing missions and equip them with wargear unlocked from card packs.

While that may hint at a free-to-play model, Rodeo prefers to release its games with premium pricing (up front cost). Purchase gives you access to all nine acts (approximately forty missions and fifteen hours of play).

The clip below provides a nicely detailed look at the beast, via test animations, sketches, and developer narration. The idea of an eagle/lion hybrid may not be any less silly, but you may gain a greater appreciation for why it might have such a fearsome reputation.

Everything We Know About The Insane New Zombie Mode

about X hours ago from

Every other year or so Activision and the Call of Duty developers announce a crazy new cast of B-list actors for a zany new co-op mode. Call of Duty: Black Ops III's new Shadows of Evil zombie mode, revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con 2015 and via a trailer, might be the nuttiest yet. Celebrities like Ron Perlman, Heather Graham, and even the great Jeff Goldblum fight against zombies and other Lovecraftian horrors in this noir-infused 1940s adventure. The trailer (watch it here) is so dense with blazing guns, magical gumballs, and shadowy tentacles that we decided to breakdown the entire video and share what we've learned.

A Dense, Stylish MetropolisWe don't know where exactly the zombie-infested mayhem takes place this time around, but the aesthetic conjures up images of a stylized, mafia-era New York City. The glitzy co-op setting features dark alleyways, illuminated elevated walkways, and chaos in the open streets.

One environment appears to be a dimly lit dance club, presumably the Black Lace Burlesque featured seen on the marque.
