Updated story: Necromunda: Hired Gun is an upcoming first-person shooter set in the Warhammer universe, coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on June 1. The game actually leaked on the Microsoft Store yesterday!
It's described as a "violent, thrilling FPS" and is set within the "Warhammer 40,000" universe, which is also "optimised for Xbox Series X|S". You'll even get a cyber canine companion to accompany on your travels, which in our eyes, is a massive selling point.
"Navigate an ocean of crime and corruption to balance the bloody ecosystem of Necromunda as a merciless hired gun. The money’s good, the dog’s loyal, and the gun’s reliable – but can you survive the hunt? Necromunda: Hired Gun is an indie fast-paced, violent, and thrilling FPS set in the darkest reaches of Warhammer 40,000’s most infamous hive city.
For the right price, eliminate the most notorious gangers and mutants. Your armory is a sprawling arsenal. Your body is enhanced with a dozen customizable augments to run on walls and leap over chasms. Your cyber-mastiff will sniff out and kill enemies for you, while your grappling hook allows quick, agile traversal of the massive environments."
If this wasn't enough, then there's also Warhammer 40K: Darktide, which is also said to be releasing this year. Seems like a great time to be a Warhammer fan with multiple titles on the horizon.
