The Warhammer 40,000 series has offered intense strategy and action for both tabletop players and gamers for decades, and now the epic universe will expand even further with the newly-revealed title Necromunda: Underhive Wars .

Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Rogue Factor announced the new title Necromunda: Underhive Wars will be coming to consoles and PC, as the companies announced their new partnership with Games Workshop to begin development of the title that is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

No specific release date or platforms have been confirmed at this time, though Focus Home Interactive provided a few more details on the upcoming turn-based tactical RPG, with the full description for the game below:

Rival gangs of ruthless warriors are locked in an endless war for control of the Underhive, a gigantic warren of derelict factories, rusted metal husks, and forgotten technologies. Anarchy, violence, betrayal and death rule this hellish place, long forsaken by any semblance of civilization.

Rogue Factor general manager Yves Bordeleau explained that the team’s collaboration with Focus Home and Games Workshop is “a story of trust, hard work, and true passion for the Warhammer Universe” following previous work on Mordheim: City of the Damned in Early Access, which “paved for our next step in conquering the tactical RPG genre” with the upcoming Necromunda: Underhive Wars.

Games Workshop head of licensing Jon Gillard also provided a statement that the company is “delighted to welcome Necromunda: Underhive Wars to the catalogue of great games based on our worlds and settings,” and added that Rogue Factor’s team are “clearly the right people to realize the nightmarish world of Necromunda.”

Necromunda: Underhive Wars is currently in development for consoles and PC – no release date has been confirmed at this time.
