Legendary Games have unleashed the pestilential rat men Skaven onto their mobile multi-player combat game Mordheim: Warband Skirmish in their latest update. The Skaven update is available on Google Play, the Amazon App Store and the Apple App Store priced at £4.99.
The Skaven are plague ridden sinister rate men who like to see nothing more than every other race die. They scurry beneath the cities of man skulking in shadows and plot ways in which they can spread plague and pestilence. It is said that if it wasn’t for the Skaven’s inability to work with each other their combined forces would overpower the Empire. Wyrdstone is the source of the Skaven’s power so where better to get it than a practically deserted city where it is laying in the streets. The addition of the Skaven brings the total of mercenary factions up to 4.
Mordheim: Warband Skirmish, based on Games Workshop’s classic table top game Mordheim, places players in control of a small warband as they venture through the dangerous city of Mordheim in the search for the precious Wyrdstone shards that have littered the city since a giant comet destroyed the once thriving home to many of the Empire’s citizens. Those citizens that could leave did so as fast as possible leaving Mordheim abandoned to all except the bands of scavengers seeking fortune and the mutated horrors that dwell within the dark ruins.
More factions will be coming to Mordheim: Warband Skirmish as DLC, including:
- Undead – Agents of the Vampire Counts.
- Witch Hunters
- Sisters of Sigmar – The only faction with remotely honourable intentions
- Cult of the Possessed – Those who have turned to the dark Gods of Chaos.
The Skaven are available to purchase now.
