Bigben Interactive and Games Workshop have signed a License Agreement to release a new game based on the Warhammer Fantasty Battles IP.
The game, which is currently in development, will be the first Warhammer title to be a “Hack and Slash” game. The game will be based in the Old World, “a dark and bloody continent devastated by the wars against Chaos,” explains the press release.
The game will be developed by French studio, Eko Software, the developers behind the How To Survive series.
“We are very pleased to work with Games Workshop developing a game which draws from the incredible potential of the Warhammer world. The Eko Software and Bigben teams have long been fans of this franchise from day one, including myself. Warhammer Fantasy Battles is well suited to offer players something quite innovative in the timeless hack & slash genre.” affirmed Benoit Clerc, Director of Video Games at Bigben.
No other details have been revealed such as the name of the game, the projected release date, story, or screenshots, though this information is promised “shortly”.
