Regicide Warhammer 40K ChessA Warhammer 40K Chess game is coming to multiple platforms later this year. [Unfortunately, “multiple platforms” does not appear to include tabletop.] According to Hammerfall Publishing, Regicide will feature both the traditional game (single and multiplayer modes) and “an enthralling Blood Angels story driven campaign based on a totally new concept of chess.”

The game honours the sheer brutality of the Warhammer®40,000® universe. It features a multitude of merciless kill and death animations that were created in a state-of-the-art motion capture studio, utilizing military trained fight and stunt choreographers. The game combines these exciting features along with environments, weapons, and upgradeable characters which have been meticulously crafted by some of the industry’s leading artists.
