Nottingham, UK, 14 th July. Skaven finally skitter onto Mordheim: Warband Skirmish. Legendary Game’s Tactical multi-payer combat game based on Games Workshop®’s table-top classic: Mordheim™.

The three unique mercenary factions that were available from launch are now joined by Skaven – skulking sinister rat men who need Wyrdstone to thrive. The new update is available on to the Apple App Store, Google Play and the Amazon App Store priced at £4.99 (tier 5).   

In the game you control a small warband picking through the ruins of the City of Mordheim clashing with other scavenging warbands and collecting wyrdstone - valuable shards from the comet that destroyed the city.  Compared to the existing warbands Skaven are much faster and have a higher initiative enabling them to move first and spot hidden enemy.  The big weak point is leadership, they can sure dish out pain but can’t take it.  As soon as these little guys are isolated or start to take punishment they will squirt the musk of fear and scarper, especially if the Leader is not looking.

More factions will follow as DLC, including:

  • Undead – Agents of the Vampire Counts, helping their bid to control the living
  • Witch Hunters – Agents of the Grand Theologonist who will burn first and ask questions later
  • Sisters of Sigmar – The only faction with remotely honourable intentions
  • Cult of the Possessed – Men who have turned to the dark powers for salvation
Key features:

? Tactical turn-based gameplay with incredible action sequences 

? Recruit, customise and train your warband

? A rich, powerful and immersive fantasy world

? Multi-player online – you will go up against other players

? Available for both iPhones and iPads!

? Continuous planned updates, including extra content and map variations.

? “Graphic novel” art style with a grim undertone perfectly setting the scene of the harrowing city of Mordheim
