Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade, a brand new game set in Game Workshop‘s famous Warhammer universe, has finally launched and is now available to download from the App Store. Developed by Pixel Toys, the game is optimized for iPhone 6S and 6S Plus with 3D Touch control mechanics and takes full advantage of Apple’s latest A9X processor. The newest addition to the Warhammer series for iOS also gives players the command of an Imperial Knight, a colossal armored war mech, to engage in large-scale combat.
As an Imperial Knight, whose noble Drakkus house has been destroyed by the power of Chaos, players team up with the Dark Angels Space Marine chapter. Throughout the game players embark on a journey of redemption on the world of Tarnis destroying any enemies in their path. Sporting a 40-mission campaign, additional Patrol missions, forging and customization systems, Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade puts players in the middle of heavy-weapon combat with classic 40k enemy forces. These missions also take place in authentic environments from the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
For gamers using the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, an all new control system has been implemented using 3D touch. The deeper you press into the screen means the further you zoom into the sights, while a reduction in pressure zooms the sights back out. From there, pressing down far enough will switch to a different weapon, providing a much better experience and less screen clutter with buttons on the screen.
Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade also offers a highly-detailed customization system where players can make use of Games Workshop‘s replicated paints and decorations to personalize their Knight. Apart from that, there’s a huge crafting system that allows players to forge and equip powerful weapons including the Avenger Gatling Cannon and the Melta Gun. Besides the game’s core campaign, players can complete daily challenges and compete against each other in specific missions to win legendary weapons, armor and equipment.
