Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf – Steam Early Access

Posted on 16 Feb 2017 by

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf has recently been announced by developer HeroCraft. The card-based game will follow the tale of Valgard Twice Slain, squad leader of the Space Wolves as his Strike Cruiser was ambushed by the heretical Chaos Space Marines of the Word Bearers Legion. Available from tomorrow February 17th 2017 on Steam Early Access, the title is announced to ultimately feature campaign, PvP and a survival mode.

The release will quickly tell whether Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf has got what it takes to be recognized as a good Warhammer title. With Games Workshop having opened the floodgates after the collapse of THQ, the recent track record in the digital market has been patchy, with good or excellent titles being escorted on to the PC platform by a horde of bad games.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf itself was already released on iOS in 2014 and Android half a year later. On the mobile platform in enjoyed some success, but many a title has failed miserably when making the jump on to PC. With enhanced graphics and a new UI, HeroCraft now hopes to succeed where previous titles have failed.
