Warhammer Underworlds: Online strategy reveal

warhammer underworlds online strategy reveal in linux windows pc games

Warhammer Underworlds: Online a new strategy reveal for Windows PC with a Linux interest. All thanks to game development team Steel Sky Productions. Who have also partnered with Games Workshop. Coming to Steam late 2019.

So first off, Warhammer Underworlds: Online is a digital conversion. Doing so for the popular Warhammer Underworlds. The Ultimate Competitive Miniatures Game franchise.
The games going to first release in Early Access. Which is coming late 2019.

Linux Support:

“We’re using Unity to build Warhammer Underworlds: Online. And don’t have any plans to make a Linux version at the moment. We’re concentrating on getting the PC version working really well. Before considering other platforms.
How many platforms we reach depends on the success of the project once we launch.”

So this is a unique dice and cards strategy game. And even though the trailer does not show off gameplay. The environment reflects aspects of a true Warhammer tabletop game.
But I’m pleased to see Steel Sky putting efforts into development. This definitely gets my attention. Since the trailer below looks quite stunning.
Plus this is a Unity 3D game. So chances are, the Windows release will work via Proton.

But for now, Steel Sky is encouraging Wishlist support. And the Early Access period will be a “few months”.

Warhammer Underworlds: Online is a strategic, two-player game. Players choose a warband. While building decks and facing off in turn based combat. Aiming to win by scoring the most Glory. Defeating enemy fighters and fulfilling objectives.

Warhammer Underworlds is based on Games Workshop’s ‘Ultimate Competitive Miniatures Game’. Growing in popularity since its launch in October 2017. The tabletop franchise has two major instalment boxed sets. These are Shadespire and Nightvault. Plus more than a dozen Warband expansion packs so far. This also includes an active community and tournament scene. Since the game shows no signs of slowing down.

While deck building elements enable a high level of strategy. The games have a short time (30-60 minutes). Which is also a great option for fans. Both of miniatures wargames and board games.

Warhammer Underworlds: Online  will be a premium PC title. So there are no hidden costs. All players will receive two warbands at launch. With an extra two warbands. This is available during the Early Access. Also at no cost. Making for a total of four warbands.

New content will be shared in two ways:

  • All players receive steady, free card releases at regular intervals
  • Extra warband DLC expansions. Which will be available for an additional cost
