Full Version: Warhammer 40k Coming to DS and PSP
Apocalypse Tribe HQ > Diversions > Entertainment


THQ have just announced Warhammer 40K: Squad Command, a strategy game for the PSP and DS. Which all sounds very, very good. See, 40K is good at the worst of times, but a game of 40K I can take and play on the can? That's a little slice of heaven right there.

The game's got a 13-mission singleplayer campaign, choice of two Space Marine or two Chaos Legion armies and both global and local multiplayer options. Strangely, there's no word on whether this is turn-based like the real deal or real-time like it's big bro, Dawn of War, but the screenshots sayng "enemy turn" give a pretty strong indication it's the former. Least I hope it is.

A press release locked in an unending war for humanity's survivial is after the jump. Luke Plunkett

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command marks the first time that the brutal, war-ravaged world of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe will be playable on the PSP [LP - and DS, hit up THQ's site for details]. Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command features fast, action-packed combat through turn-based strategy and an engaging, authentic single-player storyline.

With a robust multiplayer mode featuring 9 unique missions, gamers will team up and go head-to-head with other gamers worldwide as either the Imperium of Man or Chaos Space Marines, ensuring hours of unique replayability.
