Warhammer Games

Games Workshop’s high-fantasy Warhammer universe is the setting for a myriad of different games, all of which either combine or are lodged in their own unique genre. This is so much the case that it is often hard to pigeonhole a Warhammer game, and this is probably Games Workshop’s intention.

For those that may be unfamiliar, Warhammer is born out of a tabletop game of the same name with intricate rule sets and beautifully made, hand-painted figurines. Borrowing heavily from Norse and Tolkien-esque mythologies, the Warhammer games emphasize constant warfare and combat as a driving feature of the narrative.

For those who want a more sci-fi bend to their Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000 (also known as Warhammer 40K) is a more science fiction-based future version of the Warhammer universe. Peace is an unheard of concept in all Warhammer games and most feature some kind of martial conflict between enemies.

Featuring a variety of in-game races, all with their own histories and lore, as well as deep backstories and visceral violence, Warhammer tends to be much more mature than other fantasy or science fiction fare in this area.

Among the most recent titles released in the Warhammer universe include the very popular Vermintide, a first-person game similar in structure to Valve’s Left 4 Dead games, and Total War: Warhammer II, which seeks to place the real-time strategy format on top of the Warhammer universe.

In the Warhammer 40,000 universe, a recent video game title was Eternal Crusade, a first-person shooter game set in the universe of W40K. Easily adaptable to multiple game types, the recent success of Vermintide has many people speculating about possible future first-person games, even battle royale-style entries using the fantasy Warhammer universe as a backdrop. Vermintide has spawned not only one but two titles in that series, the future potential for first-person shooter Warhammer games is quite bright at the moment.
