Another week, another Warhammer game on mobile. It’s becoming an odd trend lately (though it’s one we predicted not so long ago), and if you’re a fan of the franchise, it’s starting to feel like an embarrassment of riches.
Especially if you’re also a reader.
Tin Man Games, one of the leading names in digital gamebooks, has just announced the impending release of Legacy of Dorn: Herald of Oblivion — the first part of their WH40k gamebook trilogy.
You are a veteran Space Marine of the Imperial Fists Chapter. Equipped with powerful Terminator armour and armed with the deadliest weapons that the Adeptus Astartes wield, you are a symbol of the Emperor’s might. Trapped aboard the space hulk Herald of Oblivion and the only survivor of your squad, you must fight your way through the aliens and heretics that infest the star vessel and find a way to escape the horror and return to your Chapter.
If the name “Herald of Oblivion” sounds familiar, that’s because it was originally published in print form back in 2012. The words are by gamebook legend Jonathan Green, whose name has adorned dozens of gamebooks over the last 15 years.
Expect to be reading the first part of the trilogy on iOS and Android this September, with two sequels (Pits of Commorragh, Forge of War) coming in 2016.
