The number of big-time franchises coming to mobile seems to increase with each month. Today, it's Warhammer, specifically a new game called Warhammer Quest, set to debut on iPhone and iPad Spring 2013; it's based on a 1995 board game of the same name.
The news comes from Warhammer publisher Games Workshop and developer Rodeo Games, the studio responsible for the popular Hunters 2, currently available on the App Store. That last part is key, since Warhammer Quest will run on Rodeo's Taurus engine, the same tech behind that aforementioned iOS title.
"By using our existing engine, it means we can really focus on developing
the parts of Warhammer Quest that made it such a great table-top game; truly unique hero characters and brutal enemies from across all the Warhammer races," explained Rodeo Games co-founder Laurent Maguire. "The opportunity to work with Games Workshop was such an exciting prospect; we are thrilled to have been entrusted with this facet of the Warhammer licence."
On the downside, that's all we know at this point. Not even the recently unveiled teaser is much help. That said, you can score a first look at Warhammer Quest if you attend Games Workshop's UK Games Day at the Birmingham NEC on Sunday, September 23rd.
