Iconic tabletop game to go isometric in new single-player and social title

Zattikka taking Warhammer free-to-play

Digital gaming specialist Zattikka has signed a deal with Games Workshop to produce free-to-play isometric 3D games based on Warhammer 40,000’s Titans.

Zattikka is to develop a title “incorporating single, multiplayer and social gaming modes, delivering both single and chain mission tactical experiences across a broad platform range, including PC/Mac and tablets”.

It is being developed a Zattikka’s US game studios with an expected launch in 2014. A post-release DLC map is already being drawn up.

"We are delighted to be working with Games Workshop on such a prestigious and important gaming franchise,” Zattikka CEO Mark Opzoomer stated. “Warhammer 40,000 is one of the most globally recognisable science fantasy genres, appealing to a broad cross section of gamers.”

Games Workshop’s head of licensing Jon Gillard added: "Titans have been around since the early days of Warhammer 40,000 when they first appeared in our ‘Adeptus Titanicus’ game, and have been a firm fan favourite ever since. Seeing these massive engines of destruction fight it out in an online game is going to be fantastic.”

EA’s free-to-play Warhammer title Wrath of Heroes is scheduled to shut down at the end of the month.
