Medieval Fantasy Board Game Coming to PC

Company: Namco
Product: Warhammer

Namco has announced that the company has signed a licensing agreement with Nottingham, U.K.-based Games Workshop to create interactive games based on the dark, medieval fantasy world of Warhammer. The exclusive, long-term deal will allow Namco to publish multiple games for the PC and also allows for future console and handheld gaming versions.

?Warhammer is considered among the greatest fantasy gaming brands in the world,? said Grantley Day, Director of PC Development for Namco Hometek Inc. ?We plan to extend its rich characters, environments, and lore to the video game arena, with some blockbuster titles for the PC.?

Games Workshop created the Warhammer world more than 22 years ago, as the setting for its wildly successful tabletop fantasy war game of the same name. Since then, the game has been released in six editions, had dozens of supplements, and been the basis for tens of thousands of unique model soldier designs, making it one of the most well documented and detailed fantasy settings in existence. The world itself is a dark and forbidding fantasy realm, where Elves, Orcs, Dwarfs, Undead, and many other races clash constantly in mighty battles seeking domination over each other. Meanwhile, the insidious forces of Chaos strive to undermine the basic fabric of society both from within and by the direct invasion of its legions of daemons, beastmen, and warped human champions.

The Warhammer community stretches across the world, supported by Games Workshop?s 300+ stores, 4000+ independent retailers, and many games clubs, tournaments and events such as the annual Games Days in the U.K., U.S., Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and Australia. There is also a thriving web community based around the official website and many thousands of fan sites.

?We feel sure the legions of Warhammer fans will be excited at the prospect of this partnership with such a distinguished company as Namco,? said Jon Gillard, Business Development Manager for Games Workshop. ?Namco has created some of the greatest video game franchises of all time, and we are confident they will make some incredible games set in Warhammer?s rich and engaging world.?
