Mordheim: City of the Damned - You Should Fear the Undead Warband

Press Release   •   Oct 26, 2016 14:59 BST

The Undead Warband DLC available today on PC - in a few weeks on consoles

Mordheim: City of the Damned, the video game adaptation of Games Workshop's cult classic tabletop game, today welcomes its new playable warband on PC: the Undead! The Undead DLC will also be available for consoles in a few weeks. After pleasing players worldwide with its brutal and unforgiving tactical combat, Mordheim shows off the new warband with today's screenshots. They join the existing factions: the Human Mercenaries, the Sisters of Sigmar, the Skaven of Clan Eshin, the Cult of the Possessed, and the Witch Hunters. The Undead Warband DLC adds a new faction with 7 new Undead unit types and an original, fully playable, campaign featuring the unique Dramatis Personae Katherina von Dernsbach.

On the borders of the Empire, beneath the World's Edge Mountains, lies the forsaken province of Sylvania. Long a place of mystery and sinister doings, Sylvania descended into horror during the Black Plague when the necromancer Vanhel raised legions of the dead. Since that time, Sylvania has been a haunted land steeped in the darkest magic. From the ancient castle of Drakenhof, Count Vlad von Carstein rules the county, but his ambition drives him to seek greater power. With the Empire consumed by civil strife, Vlad sees opportunity. The warbands he sends into Mordheim, the wyrdstone they gather for him, are but the first steps in the war the vampire lord will soon wage on his mortal neighbours.

Mordheim: City of the Damned is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

About Mordheim: City of the Damned

The Game

Mordheim: City of the Damned is the first video game adaptation of Games Workshop's cult classic Mordheim. Set in the Warhammer world's decimated Empire city, Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game where you lead warbands into bloody and lethal skirmishes. The game blends RPG elements, fast-paced tactical combat and intricate unit customization in a time wrought by chaos and rivalry where only the strongest survive.

Pick your warbands from iconic Mordheim factions - Sisters of Sigmar, Possessed, Skaven, Mercenaries from the Empire - and lead your troops to battle. Recruit new units, equip them with enhanced gear. Evolve and customize your warband with the experience gained from each successful mission, transforming them into a terrifying force on the battlefield.

Devise the best strategy to annihilate your rivals. If you fail, some of your units might lose a limb... or worse. Keep in mind that in Mordheim: City of the Damned, a dead unit is lost forever! Consider the environment when formulating your battle strategy, exploiting the unique buildings, ruins or the layout of the streets. Deploy your troops carefully and anticipate the actions of your adversaries to set up ambushes! Organize ingenious battle plans where the talents of your units will be as important as your own luck during key moments of combat.

In these epic battles where fame and glory await, your strategy will definitely be your best ally! Visit the four corners of the City of the Damned to complete multiple missions in the solo campaign, or challenge other players in enthralling multiplayer modes.
