Necromunda: Underhive Wars resurfaces, coming this summer

Almost three and a half years have passed since the announcement of Necromunda: Underhive Wars, the Warhammer 40,000 successor to 2015's Mordheim: City of the Damned from developer Rogue Factor. Other than a fairly pointless cinematic teaser trailer released in early 2018 there was basically no news about the game during that entire time, until it suddenly resurfaced last week with a Steam page and a release window. According to a community update published on the official forum, Necromunda went through a round of closed playtesting in early 2019, and it sounds like the reception wasn't so great, so they decided to spend another year improving it. I'm certainly curious to know how the game looks like after emerging from this development hell, but for now all we have is yet another cinematic trailer, with accompanying press release:
The very first video game set in the grim darkness of Games Workshop's most famous Hive World
Necromunda: Underhive Wars, a Tactical RPG and first video game adaptation of the legendary tabletop game Necromunda, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this summer.
Today, we invite you to discover a truly unique perspective on the Warhammer 40,000 universe’s most famous Hive World with an explosive new story trailer!
Get a glimpse of the dangers that will await in the Underhive, as you’ll delve deep underneath this nightmarish, polluted Hive City with the infamous Clan members of House Orlock, Escher and Goliath, in search for the most valuable of long-lost treasures. As the three will clash in savage, third-person tactical battles, who will come out on top?
A compelling Tactical RPG set on the most famous and dangerous of all Hive Worlds
Necromunda: Underhive Wars brings you closer to the action than any tactical game before, giving you an over-the-shoulder view of every lethal takedown, brutal melee engagement and explosive firefight. Dive deep in the twisted, vertiginous, dark tunnels of the Underhive in this tactical RPG’s compelling story campaign and Salvage Operations, where rival gangs will fight to the bitter end for personal power, wealth, survival and the honour of their Houses. Lead, grow and customize your gangs in action-packed, persistent game modes, where you’ll bring your forces to fight against the AI, or with up to three other players online. The choices, and consequences, are yours - only the strongest will survive.
More information on Necromunda: Underhive Wars will be coming very soon.
