The console version of Mordheim: City of the Damned has launched for PS4 and Xbox One. The digital adaptation of Game Workshop’s boardgame is a tactical-level strategy game that has players fighting for Wyrdstone gems. As the leader of one of four factional Warbands (the Sisters of Sigmar, the Human Mercenaries, the Cult of the Possessed, and the Skaven of Clan Eshin), the player must constantly risk their soldiers’ future in battles that can leave them permanently disabled or even dead. Dead-dead, too—no coming back. Fortunately, careful commanders can also customize their units to maximize their chances of survival.
