Warhammer Deathwatch is coming to smartphones later this year. Captain an elite battalion of Space Marines against the evil Xenos known as the Tyranids. A Cancer is eating away at the Imperium...
Rodeo Games are bringing Warhammer Deathwatch: Invasion of the Tyranids to smartphones and other mobile devices. Deathwatch will be a turn based game with huge single player and multiplayer platforms.
The game allows players to take control of an elite battalion of Space Marines leading them through a total of forty expansive campaign missions. The multiplayer element allows for player vs player online battles. Hopefully emulating the glorious battles of old, the likes we saw in Dawn of War 1 & 2.
"Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion 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." - Rodeo Games
Space marines are the toughest of Mans armies and Deathwatch are a considerable cut above your average Blood Raven. Fancy seeing the Blood Ravens in action... Take a look.
The Deathwatch are the elite, unlike other Space Marines, the Deathwatch are not truly a separate Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes; rather, they are a collection of Veteran Space Marines drawn from all of the different extant Chapters. Deathwatch are the specialist, they will deploy anywhere at anytime and are considered mans last defense against alien hordes.
"Clad in black armour, 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 customise your Kill Team with over 200 different weapons and wargear relics, take on the campaign mode, or for the first time, in a Rodeo title, you will be able to test your ability against your friends in the multiplayer mode." - Rodeo Games
The Tyranids believe that quantity has a quality all its own, they are in essence an ecosystem comprised of many different bioforms which all adapt to the same genetic theme. Put all together they form a variety of monstrous superorganism that traverse vast distances across the universe in great swarm like fleets of biomechanical ships consuming any life form that they encounter along the way.
"There is a cancer eating at the Imperium. With each decade it advances deeper, leaving drained, dead worlds in its wake. This horror, this abomination, has thought and purpose which functions on an unimaginable, galactic scale and all we can do is try to stop the swarms of bio-engineered monsters it unleashes upon us by instinct. We have given the horror a name to salve our fears; we call it the Tyranid race, but if it is aware of us at all it must know us only as Prey." - Warhammer 40K
You will also be able to customise your Marines with specialist skills and abilities whilst collecting wargear to equip your team with the most sophisticated ordinance known to mankind to defeat the Tyranid swarm.
