Le studio lyonnais Grand Cauldron diffuse une courte vidéo pour présenter sa future adaptation pour tablette et mobiles de Battlefleet Gothic. Intitulé Leviathan, il s’agira donc d’une déclinaison fidèle au jeu de figurines de Games Workshop qui prendra ici pour décor la campagne Shield of Bhaal. Scénarios qui permettront donc de jouer, en tour par tour et y compris en multijoueurs (en ligne ou en hotseat), les flottes de la Marine impériale, des Blood Angels ou des Tyranides dans le système de Cryptus.
Pour plus d’informations sur Battlefleet Gothic : Leviathan, dont la sortie devrait avoir lieu sur iOS vers la fin du printemps, voyez le communiqué et les screenshots suivants ainsi que le site officiel.
GRAND CAULDRON ANNOUNCE BATTLEFLEET GOTHIC: LEVIATHAN THE MOBILE TRANSLATION OF THE TABLETOP TURN BASED STRATEGY GAME
(Lyon, FRANCE – April 6, 2016)
Grand Cauldron and Games Workshop today proudly announce Battlefleet Gothic: Leviathan; the faithful digital rules translation of the eponymously titled tabletop miniatures game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. This turn based strategy game, themed on spaceship battles, takes place during the Shield of Baal campaign – where mighty miles long ships battle amongst the stars. The game will be available on iOS (mobile and tablet) in late spring 2016. Strategy and Warhammer fans alike will have to manage devastating fleets and battle through space in campaign or PVP player mode: In the campaign mode, players will control the powerful Imperial Navy and deadly Space Marines fleets. They’ll have to protect the shieldworlds of the Cryptus system by eradicating the dreadful Tyranids from the map and winning the missions. In PVP mode, gamers can fight with their favourite fleets against their friends or other players. There will be a large selection of ships to choose from – with scores of warships to customize through earned weapons and improvements.
Battlefleet Gothic: Leviathan will be available for iOS mobile and tablet starting late Spring 2016.
«We’re so excited to be working on this game, being lifelong fans of Games Workshop games, and especially Battlefleet Gothic» said Stéphane Surget, CEO of Grand Cauldron, «we’ve laboured long and hard to make a creative and exciting game – we can’t wait to show it off.»
See the game being demonstrated at Warhammer Fest, on the 14 and 15 May at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK.
