NECROMUNDA: GANG SKIRMISH – WORLDWIDE RELEASE MARCH 11th 2021
Nottingham, UK, 8TH March. Today independent developer Legendary Games announced the launch of a mobile title based on Games Workshop’s famous Necromunda tabletop game.
Necromunda: Gang Skirmish
In the world of Necromunda, outlaws, bounty hunters, thieves and gunslingers are rivalled against one another; battling for dominance over territories in the Underhive, the lawless ruins at the bottom of a hive city. In Necromunda: Gang Skirmish players will control a gang working their way up in reputation and power in a series of multiplayer turn-based strategy engagements.
“It has been four months in live beta testing during which time we have built up a really valued test community and used player feedback to really hone it down to a great, compelling experience.” said Ewan Lamont, CEO Legendary Games.
Four of six starting factions will be available from launch with more available soon after. The game will be supported throughout its life with fortnightly content additions.
Lamont also said “The Necromunda tabletop game is a great experience with a few friends, we can't wait to play Gang Skirmish with thousands of friends!”
