Remember Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes? The free-to-play MMORPG brought players to the fantastical world of the Warhammer universe. Unfortunately, the game has not stood the test of time and has been taken offline. It’s been very quiet about the popular science-fiction-fantasy franchise on sevengames.com since then, but finally, a new game is on the horizon. Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion has just been announced by Rodeo Games. The title will be a free-to-play science-fiction real-time strategy game for iOS devices. A first trailer gives players a short glimpse at the upcoming app:
As seen in the teaser, Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion looks quite gorgeous for an iPhone and iPad game. This is due to the fact that the studio has worked with the Unreal 4 engine to create a detailed sci-fi world. In the RTS, players will travel to the edge of Imperial Space to fight against the Tyranid swarms of Hive Fleet Leviathan in turn-based combat. They will control the Deathwatch Marines, an elite, secret order of Space Marines.
The mobile game is scheduled for a summer 2015 release. An Android release has not been confirmed as of now.
