Warhammer Quest by Rodeo Games launched back in 2013 to critical and fan acclaim and players have been hoping for a sequel ever since. Now, it looks like that’s about to happen, but from a new developer.
Since the launch of the turn-based strategy dungeon crawler, Rodeo Games went on to release Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch which wasn’t quite as successful as Quest causing the studio to go into hiatus. Out of Rodeo a couple of founding members decided to go and start a new studio titled Perchang, and it’s this studio that’ll be taking on the development of Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times.
Unfortunately details are pretty thin, but we do have an official synopsis as well as a handful of screenshots for the game:
“A cataclysm was prophesied to bring about the end of the Old World. Now the forces of Chaos have begun their final assault and the last stand is coming. Heroes from all races and lands are venturing forth. Sworn enemies standing shoulder to shoulder fighting the daemons of the apocalypse. Proud warriors search for powerful artefacts to aid their lords in the coming war. Sorcerers toil for untold power, while Witch Hunters seek to settle long held scores. Dark Elf Assassins fill ledgers in blood and berserk Dwarf Slayers topple the mightiest of foes. These are the days of action and adventure. These are The End Times.”
Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times is pegged for launch in Autumn 2017.
