Necromunda: Underhive Wars gets new screenshots


Necromunda: Underhive Wars is the first video game adaptation of the Games Workshop tabletop game, with a unique setting and perspective on the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Created by Rogue Factor, developers of Mordheim: City of the Damned, the game blends fast-paced tactical combat with RPG elements and deep unit customization. Today, go deep into the the cavernous domes and rusted corridors of the Underhive with three new screenshots showing warfare between the rival Escher and Goliath gangs, in preparation for the game’s release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.

The turn-based tactical gameplay pits you against rival gangs in brutal gunfights across huge, vertical environments. Necromunda is a planet covered in poisonous ash wastes, forcing its population to live in Hive Cities, massive man-made structures built up over thousands of years to serve just one purpose: provide to the Imperium. In Hive Primus, the rich and noble live above the clouds in the Spire while the poorest and worst-off live in a massive and forgotten subterranean metropolis, the Underhive, where criminals fight in perpetual gang wars for control.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.





About Necromunda: Underhive Wars

You will command one of Necromunda’s iconic gangs, embracing
anarchy, violence and death in an endless war for control to dominate
this hellish place.
Use raised walkways to push a high ground
advantage, set traps for unwitting victims, and ambush your foes to
force them into fierce melee engagements. With each battle won, your
fighters can grow in power, earning advanced skills and equipment, but
beware! Even a victory may result in casualties. Deaths and injuries are
permanent, and you’ll need to live with the consequences of every
decision.

For an even deeper challenge, Conquest Mode offers endless gameplay featuring 4X mechanics between the turn-based battles. Fight over key territory to take complete control and prove your gang as the most fearsome in the Underhive!
Every fighter is customizable in loadout and appearance, letting you
change everything from body size to armor and weapons. Take your unique
gang online, challenging other players in competitive online
multiplayer.

- Adaptation of the hit tabletop game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

- Fast-paced tactical strategy game with customisable gangs.

- Unique atmosphere set in the deadly Underhive featuring expansive, vertical environments.

- Intense solo campaign showcases the distinct Underhive gangs.

- Win or lose, your gang's injuries and deaths are permanent: each decision matters!

New Avatar Editor Debuts to Xbox Insiders!


Get a Head Start on Customizing Your New Avatar

First unveiled last year, a major update to Avatars is arriving today for Xbox Insiders. Avatars will be a unique representation of your desired style, personality, creativity, and mood as you play on Xbox One. As an Xbox Insider, you’re among the first to get your hands on the new Avatars. With this release, you can get a head start on creating a new Xbox Avatar within the beta Xbox Avatar Editor app. We’re starting things off with a selection of customizable appearance and closet items in each category. Additional accessories, props, moods, clothing, and appearance categories will be unlocked in the near future, and more content will regularly become available after launch. Right now, we’re only turning on the Avatar Editor itself, but Xbox dashboard integration will be coming soon to Insiders.

Our team is busy applying the final touches for our first preview of the Xbox Avatar Editor app. The flight will officially begin tomorrow, June 19, and members of Alpha and Alpha – Skip Ahead will be able to access the beta Xbox Avatar Editor via the Xbox Insider Hub’s Insider content tab by noon PDT.



New Categories

The new Xbox Avatars are built from the ground up in to enable an unprecedented amount of inclusive customization options, and we will continue to grow these selections over time. A wide range of body types and gender-neutral clothing enable you to uniquely tailor your avatar however you see fit.  If you see something you like, you can use it. Xbox Avatars now feature entirely new categories of appearance items and accessories, including fingernails, makeup, limbs, nose rings, and moods.

Countless Color Combinations

Thanks to the powerful new Avatar Editor app, virtually every aspect of your avatar can be personalized on-the-fly.  Each feature, including skin tone, hair, wearables, and props, can support over 16 million color options.  Most closet items also support multiple custom colors, so the number of possible color combinations for a single item can go from trillions all the way up to almost eighty octillion– that’s an eight followed by 28 zeroes!  With so many color options, it could be easy to lose track of that exact hue that you just used on an item. But don’t worry! Your recently used colors will be available in the “my colors” section of the color selection menu.


Smile for the Camera

Once you’ve created your new Avatar, you’re going to want to show it off! The Photobooth feature in the Avatar Editor enables you to capture a great photo of your Avatar to use as your Gamerpic.  Pose your Avatar using a multitude of different emotes, each of which can be paused and advanced frame-by-frame with far more control than ever before. Rotate and zoom controls help you capture the exact pose that you’re looking for, and a wide variety of background colors enable you to set the scene.


Express Yourself

Self-expression is an important tenant of Xbox Avatars, and we know that some of you have become attached to your Xbox Original Avatar since we first introduced them almost ten years ago.  We’re giving you the freedom to choose how you represent yourself to Friends on Xbox Live, whether that’s with the all-new Avatars, a custom Gamerpic, or your Xbox Original Avatar. We love the new Xbox Avatars, and we hope you do too.
