WINNIPEG game developer Complex Games is about to release a new mobile game that's part of the famous Warhammer 40,000 series called the Horus Heresy: Drop Assault.
It's the first ever mobile game set in the Horus Heresy part of the story, which is part of the Warhammer 40,000 narrative that has been the basis for numerous New York Times bestselling novels.
There's been several Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 PC-based games, but this is the first of the Horus Heresy settings games to come out on a mobile platform
Albertine Watson of Complex Games said the Complex Games people have been big fans of Warhammer for years and the company has devoted a lot of its resources to the new production that is scheduled for release in the fall.
"We were contracted by Games Workshop making it from start to finish under their watchful eye," Watson said.
Jon Gillard, head of the licensing division of the British company, Games Workshop, said, "The Horus Heresy is an iconic and seminal part of our intellectual property that describes the dark period in the Imperium's history that ultimately led to the way the Warhammer 40,000 universe looks now. The dark treachery and over-the-top battles of this epic civil war make it perfect for the game Complex is making and aficionados of our worlds will be very excited about this legendary setting being brought to life as a video game for the first time."
