On the harsh planet of Necromunda there are ash wastes that are so poisonous that people succumb to it in mere minutes. Domed cities were constructed to keep people alive but the cities are also a prison. Deep within the bowels of the city is the Underhive where gangs have to fight for everything including their lives. Will you be the one to lead your gang to victory or will you succumb to the violence of the gangs that stalk the Underhive? This is the setting of the new game Necromunda: Underhive Wars coming soon from Focus Interactive!
This game puts you in charge of a gang as you will stalk the industrial complex and fight for control of the Underhive. Right now there are two known gangs that will be playable in the game. Will you choose the Goliaths who have embraced the embodiment of brutality and use drugs to enhance their strength in battle? Or perhaps you will choose the Eschers a vicious all female gang who has made their fortune in pharmaceuticals that they also use when they engage in combat. The Eschers and the Goliaths are examples of the gangs that are going to be available, as more will be revealed when Necromunda: Underhive Wars comes closer to launch. The gameplay is tactical in nature so it allows you to see the battlefield and plot out your best course of action. Will you move to a higher position and take your foes out with a precise shot? Or will you lay down traps to ensnare your enemies?
Necromunda: Underhive also allows you to play the way that you want. If you want to have a brawler who loves to get up close and personal you can create that character. Each of your gang members is fully customizable as well as having access to a career, which not only unlocks more customization options, but also gives them access to more skills, traits and weapons. One thing I love about this upcoming game is that death is permanent so if you spend all your time on one of your members you might find yourself in a bit of trouble. However, to the victor go the spoils as your gang will not only grow due to the experience in battle they will also gain access to better loot so you can upgrade their weapons and armor.
There is also a conquest mode that allows you to pit your gang against the others in the Underhive. In this mode you will need to plan accordingly as you will strike at key points on the map to wage war for various resources. The game will also have an online multiplayer feature where you can engage with other players from around the world.
Currently there is no release date for Necromunda: Underhive Wars however, the trailer is available to watch and I have to say this is going to be a game that you will want to play. So until next time get ready to sharpen those blades and strive for control of the Underhive.
