Mordheim: City of the Damned, the turn-based tactical RPG from Rogue Factor, is now entering Early Access phase 3, which brings a new playable faction – The Cult of the Possessed. There is also a 33% discount until Friday, January 6th.
With three Warbands previously available to players – the Mercenaries of the Empire, the Skaven of Clan Eshin, and the Sisters of Sigmar – Mordheim: City of the Damned welcomes now the Cult of the Possessed, bringing the total of playable Warbands to four.
For a detailed explanation of exactly what’s coming in this second content update, see below:
The Cult of the Possessed: Worshipers of the Dark Gods of Chaos, the Cult of the Possessed is a group of degenerates and mutants gathered together seeking to gain the favour of the Shadowlord by returning the Wyrdstone to the Pit, slaughtering all those they find trespassing on their master’s domain. They of course boast their own skills, such as Terror, a passive skill which has a chance to enforce a leadership test on any unit that passes his threat zone, or Boon of Chaos, which will buff up a squadmate, increasing physical, mental or martial statistics.
Reserves management: Extending the Warcamp, the ‘reserves’ management option allow you to choose which of your units will head in and out of combat, allowing you to strategically place units in the heart of battle depending on the match load out you might need for the fight.
New Skirmish mission objectives: New skirmish objectives are introduced in this new update: Marked for Death have your hunt for a specific enemy unit – Crush their Will is reminiscent of capture the flag, where you have to steal the enemy’s idol while protecting your own, and finally Wyrdstone Rush, where you will have to gather the precious green shards and secure them.
More features will be available in the near future, such as Warband leveling. Be sure to check the Steam Page for more details about what’s coming next!
