BERKELEY, CA – 22 July, 2016 – International Publisher HR GAMES today announced that in association with Rodeo Games & Games Workshop, it will be bringing the digital version of Games Workshop’s legendary Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch to consoles later this year. Players will face a splinter of Hive Fleet Leviathan as the Deathwatch fight to keep the Astolat sector from being consumed by the Great Devourer
Deathwatch® is a turn based strategy game, set on the edge of Imperial space, where your Space Marines will engage the Tyranids in a series of tactical engagements. From war ravaged cities, to the insides of Tyranid bio-ships, your mission will see your Kill Team rise in strength and skill as you face ever greater threats and peril.
Clad in black armor, the Deathwatch is an elite, secret order of Space Marines. Drawn from the greatest heroes of several Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes, they are dedicated to combating the ever present alien menace that threatens the Imperium. In the game you will be able to customize your Kill Team with over 200 different weapons and wargear relics and take on the campaign.
“When we were discussing which project to work on next, the Deathwatch stood out as the part of the Warhammer 40,000 universe we were most excited about. Only in the Deathwatch can you bring together the greatest Space Marines from multiple Chapters, and form the ultimate fighting force. Tyranid Invasion gives players their first opportunity to command this legendary force,” said Laurent Maguire, Studio Head at Rodeo Games. “Working with Games Workshop and Rodeo Games in bringing Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch® to Consoles is part of our long term strategy of working with top products and brands,” expressed Manny Granillo, CEO of HR GAMES. “There is no one better than Games Workshop in creating compelling worlds which fascinate gamers everywhere!”
