Necromunda: Underhive Wars

  1. It's probably going to be like Mordhiem but with a cover system.

    I wonder how they'll represent gang territory. And the Underhive settlements, like Dust Falls and Glory Hole, I hope they're more than a trade tab.

    Just getting an Underhive map will be cool though.

    Yeah, an improved Mordhiem would be most welcomed.

  3. So Warhammer Community announced it.

    Nothing particularly revealing, though they hinted giant rats and mutants, so maybe Scaavies and some of the local wildlife but I wouldn't read into it too heavily. First days of February at the Paris thingy is where we'll be getting more substantial information.

  6. According to the announcement on the Warhammer Community page there was supposed to be some information made available today and yesterday at the Paris event but I haven't seen anything. Anyone have any idea what's going on there?

    Still haven't heard a word on it. Random thought: wouldn't Necromunda make a fun MMO game?
  8. If not an MMO an RPG for sure, I've spitballed some scenarios that I believe would make a great game, and if the studio were big enough to do it right I don't even think it would be a 40k Niche title, I think it could have mass appeal.

    Just imagine that you're a new arrival to the Underhive, you can pick your background and try to make your way however you see fit. You can be legit, staking a claim on a valuable asset and form a settlement, join or start a gang, or be a bounty hunter or a combination with potentially many more options.

    My own idea for the main story is that the Genestealer Cults are becoming more active and when you reach a certain level of reputation or disrupt their operations significantly an Inquisitor recruits you as an asset and you have various options of how to destroy the Cult, influencing the Inquisitor to become more a Puritan or Radical based on your choices.

    But there I go on about my dream game. I'd really like to know what's going on with this one.

    Best description of Necromunda ever: “It’s basically a mix of Judge Dredd, Mad Max and Sons of Anarchy.”
    Definitely looking forward to this game!
