Another Warhammer 40,000 game is making its way to your mobile devices. This time we take on the role of one of the universe’s most feared machines of death, an Imperial Knight. Engage in some vehicular slaughter in Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade.
Freeblade is currently being developed by Pixel Toys, and it looks like it will have a pretty solid single player experience, as well as a certain degree of narrative involvement.
When a young Imperial Knight sees their noble house destroyed by the twisted forces of Chaos, they join forces with the Dark Angels Space Marine chapter as a Freeblade. Experience the epic story in over 40 single player campaign missions as you command your Freeblade on a journey of honour, redemption and vengeance. Challenge your skills in special objective missions and patrol the world of Tarnis to slay endless waves of invaders.
A trailer for Freeblade has just been released, showcasing some quite impressive graphics, and what appears to be some fun mechanics that will allow you to feel the full power of these death dealing machines as you fight off a wide array of enemies.
However, while mowing down countless tiny foot soldiers will be fun, where this game will shine will most likely in the fights against larger vehicles, facing off against things like Chaos Helldrakes and Ork Stompas.
All in all I think this could be a fun game, mixing cathartic smash and shoot gameplay with what I hope will be an extensive single-player experience. Also, it’s an Imperial Knight! I don’t care how much they get spammed at tournaments, those things are cool.
What do you think of this game? What sort of Warhammer 40k game are you hoping for most of all?
