Slitherine‘s Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon series gets its second entry today, with the release of Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon – Da Orks.
The first Armageddon wargame featured Space Marine and Imperial Guard forces, fighting to keep the world of Armageddon under the Imperium of Man’s iron foot. The sequel, however, will let players embrace their inner savage and lead the Ork forces as they tear the planet to pieces.
The game is out today, August 18, and it costs US$ 19.99 (though there is a release discount that brings it down to US$ 17.99)
Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon – Da Orks is the second installment in the series of wargames about the wars for Armageddon, one of the most iconic conflicts in Warhammer 40,000 universe. In this hex-based, turn-based strategy game, players will lead the Orks against the Imperial forces of the Armageddon Steel Legion and Space Marines from a variety of Chapters, under a scorching sun, through hostile ash wastes, and in the shadows of gigantic Hive Cities.
The game features an engaging dynamic campaign which can end with the historic defeat or an epic victory. While advancing through the campaign, the player will have the ability to carry over battle-hardened veterans from scenario to scenario, using their experience and upgrading their equipment.
Multiplayer battles can be played on a variety of predesigned or skirmish maps, on PC or iPad, using Slitherine’s award-winning PBEM2++ system. Players can choose any of the five available factions: Steel Legion, the Orks, Ultramarines, Salamanders and Blood Angels, with a huge variety of units available to each faction.
