UK indie studio Rodeo Games announced today the development of Warhammer Quest for iOS. Due out Q2 2013, the top-down strategy board game puts players in the shoes of four Warhammer heroes “in search of immeasurable power and riches.”
Rodeo Games is best known as the studio behind Hunters & Hunters 2, a duo of highly-rated sci-fi strategy RPGs with an emphasis on tactical strategy, ala Final Fantasy Tactics and other grid-based RPGs. Warhammer Quest is being developed with the same proprietary “Taurus” engine used to create Hunters 2.
“By using our existing engine it means we can really focus on developing the parts of Warhammer Quest that made it such a great table-top game; truly unique hero characters and brutal enemies from across all the Warhammer races,” Rodeo Games co-founder Laurent Maguire said in a statement. “The opportunity to work with Games Workshop was such an exciting prospect; we are thrilled to have been entrusted with this facet of the Warhammer licence.”
