Necromunda: Underhive Wars Released

Necromunda: Underhive Wars is out a bit earlier than expected, thanks to Focus Home Interactive's apparent habit of releasing their games at midnight. The game that for years appeared to be vaporware after its announcement in early 2017 has received the usual avalanche of promotional trailers since it resurfaced in May. A Warhammer 40k version of Mordheim seems like it should have been a sure thing, but over the past couple of weeks some of our users have expressed concern about Necromunda, due its restrictively small party size and other reasons. The fact that the game has no launch day reviews other than a single negative review from PC Invasion doesn't bode well either. Not to mention that it took Focus Home until last week to finally release a proper gameplay video. Since there's no launch trailer yet, I'll post that here along with the game's description:

Deep below the nightmarish, polluted hive cities of Necromunda, in the twisted, vertiginous, dark tunnels of the Underhive, rival gangs fight to the bitter end for personal power, wealth, survival and the honour of their Houses. Only the strongest survive.

Lead, customize, and grow your gangs of Escher, Goliath, and Orlock. Specialize each member and send them to battle in hazardous dystopian environments. Exploit the terrain in tactical gunfights: climb raised walkways to take advantage, set traps, and ambush foes to force them into bloody melee engagements.

Learn new skills, loot equipment and bring your evolved gang to 4-player online gang fights.
  • Lead and evolve your gangs in this compelling tactical-RPG
  • Follow a rich narrative campaign in the Underhive
  • Engage in immersive and persistent game modes
  • First video game adaptation from mythical tabletop game Necromunda, the most famous Hive World of Warhammer 40,000
  • Play solo or join thrilling 4-way online gang fights

Necromunda: Underhive Wars is available on Steam for $40, with a rather hefty 20% launch discount until next week. Hopefully the game will turn out okay after all, but that too might tell you something.
