    Slitherine/Matrix has just announced a new Warhammer 40k strategy game called Armageddon. Note that the press release includes the phrases "turn-based" and "hex-based" but also "multiplatform".

    Main features of the game include:​
    • The game portrays the Second War for Armageddon™ in great detail, from the initial Ork landings to the final liberation of the planet;
    • It contains a large branching campaign with 30 major scenarios, plus additional 5 tutorial scenarios that explore the story in detail;
    • A complex plot, which can develop during a mission, right in the middle of battle, creating an engaging story line with unexpected twists;
    • Players lead Imperial troops of the Armageddon™ Steel Legion, with supporting assets from a number of Space Marine chapters against the ferocious Orks;
    • Fight alongside Commissar Yarrik and Commander Dante against the cunning Ork Warboss Ghazghkull Thraka;
    • Carry over battle-hardened veterans from scenario to scenario, using their experience and upgrading their equipment;
    • Detailed combat model with terrain, weather and morale effects;
    • Extensive modding options delivered through a powerful and easy-to-use game editor.
    Some numbers:​
    • Over 35 scenarios;
    • Over 100 unit types, with unique roles, stats and special abilities;
    • 20 different units stats;
    • A separate set of maps are designed and balanced specifically for multiplayer via Slitherine's PBEM++ system.
