    Necromunda: Underhive Wars seems to have been a disappointment for fans of Rogue Factor's previous game Mordheim. One might have assumed that the studio would abandon the game quickly and move on to new projects under their new owner Nacon. However, they have continued to support it and yesterday they released its first DLC, which adds the technologically-inclined House Van Saar to the game's skirmish and multiplayer modes. Here's the DLC's release trailer and announcement:



    Necromunda: Underhive Wars, based on Games Workshop’s iconic license, is expanding today with a first DLC for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC! Alongside yet another major update focusing on community feedback, developer Rogue Factor and publisher Focus Home Interactive are excited to present the Van Saar gang, members of a technological powerhouse that bring their brand-new set of skills, unique House perk and high-tech looks to the violent gang conflicts of the underhive!

    Make high-tech ambushes your enemy’s nightmare with the Van Saar!

    The Van Saar bring a new twist on the signature freedom of movement, tactical depth, and verticality of Necromunda: Underhive Wars. Clad in their signature suits of armour, they are ranged specialists with a penchant for trading movement for further firepower. They’ll blast their enemies away without a second thought, crushing them beneath a wave of lasfire, improvised explosives, bolter shells and automated turrets.

    Recruit, customize and grow fighters to create a truly unique and dangerous gang through your own choices of careers, traits, skills, equipment pieces, offensive and tactical consumables, colour schemes, and much more! The choice is yours.

    This represents the next step in Underhive Wars’ live support, which has already included months of updates and patches to bring community-driven, post-launch improvements to the game. Stay tuned for even more upcoming contents!

    Necromunda: Underhive Wars as well as the Van Saar gang DLC are available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Get up to 50% off on the base game with Steam’s Daily Deal and the Focus Home Interactive Publisher Sale on Xbox! Watch the new trailer today! Visit our official store for more information.
    The Van Saar Gang DLC for Necromunda is available on Steam for $7. The patch notes for the accompanying update are available here. Apparently Rogue Factor plan to continue updating the game into early 2021.

    How horrible has this flopped that they are moneywhoring with DLC already?
    Also plan to continue updating into early 2021 sounds horrible, the game needs another year of development to not be a burning trainwreck.

    I'd bet it was the plan right from the start. Maybe if they had been successful, they would have spent more dev time on the DLC, instead of just a paint job

    Care to elaborate?
    I haven't followed the development so far, but after Mordheim I was quite hopeful about this game.

    I predicted this before. Mordheim had massive issues. Especially with it's online and lack of content. But the devs ignored that and just released a bunch of DLC. I predicted the exact same thing would happen to Necromunda. Lo and behold. Real shame because Van Saar were my favourite gang back in the day but I would of prefered them to be included in the base game. Must of been because they spent so much time fleshing out the two other gangs making them distinct from each other and interesting to play...
    No actually. Both gangs play the same as will Van Saar. This is cosmetic differences and minor stat changes at best.

    The continued drought of any decent Warhammer 40k games is great for me, personally.

    Got a somewhat decent announcement soon.

    For now. Just wait.

    Who gives a fuck? All the fun factions are on the cutting room floor. If they wanted people to buy, you have redeemers day one, and give it to competent devs.
