Warhammer 40K: Regicide Enters Steam Early Access on May 5th

Hammerfall Publishing has released the opening cinematic to the Warhammer 40,000: Regicide campaign, and announced that it will be available on Steam Early Access from May 5. The video contains a mysterious transmission sent from the remote world of Hethgar Prime. The frontier world is in peril, and the feared warriors of the Space Marines are dispatched to investigate.

On arrival, the Space Marines find themselves up against unexpected adversaries in the struggle to liberate Hethgar Prime and investigate the source of the ominous transmissions.

Regicide is described as a fresh take on the Warhammer universe, featuring an intense mix of strategy and cinematic gameplay. Regicide aims to fuse characters, abilities and environments derived from the Warhammer 40,000 universe from Games Workshop, with traditional strategy and new action-heavy gameplay elements.

Here are the game’s key features:

? Cross-platform play.
Regicide showcases a tactical, single-player Blood Angels campaign. It also features a cross-platform multiplayer experience. Go to war anytime, anywhere against opponents worldwide as traditional gaming meets highly detailed production.

? Play anywhere versus anyone.
After the game’s launch on PC, Regicide will arrive on mobile devices in mid-2015, and allow cross-platform matches with persistent progress.

? Go to war. Anywhere. Anytime.
With one unified account, experience cross-platform multiplayer gaming between PC, tablet and mobile; against friends and foes on another platform.
