The Biggest Update Yet Just Hit Warhammer 40,000: Regicide

With the addition of new environments, two new factions, hotseat, and live Multiplayer features, Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is seeing the largest update it's had to Early Access. So let's take a closer look at these awesome new features and see what they're all about!

Hammerfall Publishing has been working hard to give players what they want and this includes an epic new battlefield! A series of newly released imagery depicts a ruined Imperial monument surrounded by trees, smoke and motes of ash at the heart of an ancient forest. But what's a battlefield without some heavy hitting heroes?

The heroes of Warhammer 40,000: Regicide have updated animations for many sequence-effects with a wide range of sparks, blood and impacts now keyed to objective sources. Almost a hundred new or improved sound effects provide an additional crunch to the visual update to ensure that players have a truly remarkable experience.

This update will also bring in two new factions. Not only will the White Scars and Goffs be available at launch, but there will also be the addition of the “Raven Guard” Space Marines and “Snakebites” Ork Clan which will provide a 'black and white' set of pieces for both races currently in the game. And if that wasn't enough already, Warhammer 40,000: Regicide will also have a Hot-Seat mode.

This mode allows for local multiplayer on the same machine and Warhammer 40,000: Regicide's game servers have been completely overhauled to facilitate live multiplayer matches. This new multiplayer functionality will allow players to:

-Choose their starting board side
-Easily challenge friends to quick battles, directly from their Friends list
-Claim victory when opponents leave (forfeit) Live matches

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is available now in Early Access on Steam, so head on over and join in the battle!
