Mash Up Chess & Warhammer 40,000 In Regicide

May 14, 2014 by brennon

So in the latest iteration of Warhammer 40,000 in digital form we have Warhammer 40,000 Chess: Regicide. See what you think of the teaser trailer for the game above…

Regicide Warboss

Regicide Blood Angel

The game is set to feature single and multiplayer variants, and apparently a whole host of incredibly detailed and challenging ‘missions’ made using the tactics and techniques of grand masters. You’ll also be playing as the valiant Blood Angels in the main campaign in a story written by Black Library author Ross Watson.

According to a few other websites there will be a myriad of factions available past the Blood Angels and Orks and should stay true to the vision of Warhammer 40,000. I think time will tell on this game but the spiel right now is pretty much on the money.

In the end you can’t really go to wrong with chess, and giving it a bad ass veneer of grim dark alongside a few tweaks and changes might make for a pretty interesting game.

What do you think?
