Well, we got ourselves a nice little leak appearing in the Microsoft store. Apparently there's a Necromunda FPS in the works! (PS4. PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC).



A single player, first person Necromunda adventure... I've so far seen analogues to Dishonored mentioned in the way it seems to work, which could be very interesting indeed!

Update: Official webiste up:

Not a fan of first person shooters. They really killed it for me when they just kept making everything into a first person shooter but! Anything new and Necromunda im happy for!

Yes we would all like a necromunda xcom clone. The closest thing is necromunda skirmish. But what we really want is pc game. Anyhow i think this games thematically really looks good. I Just hope that is comes out to pc and not only xbox. Im not a big fan of consoles.

I guess most of you old farts in here will agree with med. But did you see the most important part. The main character is holding a BOMB RAT. That just so awesome i'm having problems expressing how thrilled I am the that.

I do wish the slug throwers didn't look so much like modern weapons. Won't stop me, but autoguns have such a distinct look in Necromunda it would be nice if they looked closer to that.

Looks like this'll be a nice little distraction. I'm glad it's handled by the same team as Space Hulk: Deathwing, as that game had some of the prettiest, most 40k environments I've seen in a videogame, so at the very least it'll have killer visuals.

I played the first Dishonored* and really enjoyed it, if this turns out to be similar but in my favourite setting then that would be fantastic. The visuals do look great from what I've seen.

(As what my wife called "The Pied Piper of F*** YOU" - Rat horde attacks get the job done... uh... messily!)

Gameplay looks closer to Doom than Dishonored (it doesn't look like a pacifist run is an option in Hired Gun). Both great games anyway.
This game looks like something I'd enjoy playing. Maybe not for 40 euro-bucks, but I'll probably grab it sooner or later.

Oh, god.
Dishonored in a 40K setting would end my free time for multiple months

If its by the same team that did Deathwing, which the PC Gamer article states, it will at least look and sound like Necromunda. They did a stellar job on Deathwing. I'm disappointed it's not coop but I guess Fatshark have that covered with their 40K Vermintide.

I'd have loved a Necromunda Xcom clone too, just saying.

I‘m so happy it’s not co-op (or multiplayer or an MMO) 🤣

Maybe i‘m old, but I think there’s a lot to be said for a computer game with a decent story that you can play, yourself, whenever you like, without having to rely on anyone else.

I don't mind multiplayer as an option, but I agree, if it's the focus, I'm out. I really like Titan Fall as a game, but the story only really being a tutorial on how to play multiplayer sucked.

Just a heads up but the developers have confirmed that it is NOT a bomb rat. It is in fact a chew toy for the cyber mastiff.
