There seem to be quite a few games set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe turning up in development of late. But today’s new game is a bit different in that it’s a turn-based collectible card game dubbed Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf from Russia-based developer HeroCraft, known mostly for their work in the mobile and social gaming markets.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf allows players to lead their team of Space Wolves into battle in a 3D world. Cards are played during battles, after which the action plays out on the screen. New players can start with pre-made decks or building templates and earn new cards through winning that can unlock new tactics, weapons, and bonuses.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is scheduled to release on PC and iOS in 2014. Visit the official website to learn more.
