GoG.Com have added three ultra-classic Games Workshop Warhammer titles to their webstore. In an age of the license getting handed off to anyone and everyone this might get you hit you in the nostalgia and have you yearning for the old days even more.
Shadow of the Horned Rat
The first game in the collection is Shadow of the Horned Rat which had you fighting against the deadly forces of the Skaven with your mercenaries led by Bernhardt. Thanquol himself is present in this game which is pretty awesome.
One of the cool things about the game is that you could either work to uncover the Skaven and Orc plot or just continue fighting for your paymaster as the Old World burned around you. Since this is one of the only interpretations of the Warhammer world in the digital realm it would be ace to see Mark of Chaos come back too at some point.
Now we’re onto Warhammer 40,000. Here in Final Liberation we have the coming of Epic to the digital side of things. This game had you playing as the Imperial army trying to hold out against an Orc invasion.
As you can see, yes it did involve Titans. The game was a turn based strategy experience and it even had some cool FMV cutscenes which are legendary now. You can find them on Youtube if you take a quick look.
Last but not least is Chaos Gate which sees Ultramarines facing off against Chaos Space Marines. The game focused on turn based strategy once again but also had RPG elements in there too.
These games were well loved back in the day and it’s good to see that GoG are bringing things back to the forefront. I think there are going to be a lot of classic Warhammer fans lapping these up now they’ve been worked out to work on modern machines.
Check them out!
