Both Warhammer and Warhammer 40K have gotten their own video games exploring their worlds outside of the tabletop experience. However, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other miniatures outside of the Games Workshop world that are staying solely on terrain. Soon Privateer Press’ Warmachine will be heading to the PC with Warmachine: Tactics, and they are using Kickstarter to gain funding.
Privateer Press announced that Privateer Press Interactive will launch the highly anticipated WARMACHINE: Tactics Kickstarter campaign on July 10. WARMACHINE: Tactics will be a turn-based, squad-level strategy game for PC and Mac developed in cooperation with WhiteMoon Dreams. Privateer Press Interactive will publish the game.
WARMACHINE: Tactics will include a single-player campaign and feature synchronous and asynchronous online multi-player play. The game will launch with two playable factions—Cygnar and Khador. A stretch goal for the Kickstarter campaign, if met, would add Cryx and the Protectorate of Menoth to the game’s launch. WARMACHINE: Tactics will also be expanded with downloadable content.
Privateer Press Interactive was formed in 2013 by Matt Wilson, who is also founder and chief creative officer of Privateer Press, with the mission of bringing the acclaimed gaming worlds of Privateer Press to life in the digital medium.
Privateer Press Interactive’s partner in the project, WhiteMoon Dreams, boasts a veteran team of game developers who have worked on blockbuster titles including the Fallout series, Descent, Ratchet & Clank, Medal of Honor, Command & Conquer, and many others.
Those are some big name games behind the new developer WhiteMoon Dreams. You can check out the trailer for Warmachine: Tactics below or at the Privateer Press web site, as well as get more information about the game.
