Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is out right now, here's everything you need to know

By , on October 28, 2014

We've just had word from HeroCraft that Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is now available globally.

AppSpy has covered the game intensely since it was announced in August 2013, all the way up to the release date being confirmed last week. For those that missed some of our coverage though, here's what to expect...

There's a huge single player campaign in which you fight the minions of Chaos - The Word Bearers, to be exact - across the galaxy, in turn-based combat. A big wodge of this solo stuff can be seen in the dedicated stream we ran.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is free-to-play, meaning you'll both earn and potentially purchase the cards you add to a customisable and fully upgradable deck that dictates the actions you can make throughout a battle. Again, you can see more of this in action in our early hands-on.

As we saw way back in the debut trailer, there are different types of unit (each with their own specialities) that can be commanded throughout the game, including the Wolf Scout, Grey Hunter, and Wolf Guard. Plus there's a load of weapons to equip yourself with too, including Thunder Hammers, Flamers, Sniper Rifles, and more.

HeroCraft isn't mucking about with the depiction of damage that these weapons do either, as this brutal GIF demonstrates quite aptly.

The game will run on an iPad 3 and up, an iPad mini 2 and up, or an iPhone 5 and up, and it's also going to come to Android at some point too. You can download Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf from the Apple App Store right now, and don't forget to nab your AppSpy exclusive free Booster Pack and rare item code while you're at it too.
