Namco Announce Warhammer: Mark Of Chaos

Publisher and developer Namco Hometek Inc. today announced Warhammer Mark of Chaos a real-time strategy game set in the renowned Warhammer world. The game is set for release in late 2006 for the PC.

Developed by Black Hole Entertainment, a subsidiary of Cinergi Interactive, Warhammer Mark of Chaos features epic battles within massive landscapes, while offering an astounding level of detail, from a bird’s eye view down to the insignias on a warrior’s armor.

It is an honor to bring a real-time strategy game of this magnitude to our top-flight PC line-up,” said Nobuhiro Kasahara, President and CEO of Namco Hometek Inc. “With Warhammer Mark of Chaos, the emphasis is centered on warring armies and mighty champions and less so on the tedious aspects of base management that can often take away from the epic battles. This outstanding license deserves the best that the genre can bring.”

Additional features of the game include fully customizable units and maps, and a variety of play modes and multiplayer options.

The Story
Over a year has passed since the Great War, during which the brutal Chaos armies swept across the Empire lands. Many fierce battles still rage across the Old World.

Portions of the defeated Chaos armies have retreated to the distant Northern Wastes, while others have fallen to hostile groups. Among these tribes, new Champions rise up in an effort to reunite the Chaos forces, yet eventually all fail. None can match the power of their fallen leader, Asavar Kul.

The united Empire and High Elf forces hunt the Chaos hordes from the Empire territories, still alert because danger lurks around them in the form of smaller enemy warbands that loot the settlements of the border lands.

Now, four powerful armies – Empire, Chaos, Skaven and High Elves – along with other “dogs of war” including Orcs, Dwarfs, Vampires and Goblins, clash amidst breathtaking scenery in an epic battle for land and power.
