New ‘Warhammer’ games march their way onto Xbox 360 and PC

NAMCO BANDAI Games today announced that Warhammer: Battle March for the Xbox 360 and Warhammer: Mark of Chaos – Battle March for the PC have shipped to retailers throughout North America.

Warhammer: Battle March on the Xbox 360 includes the original content from Warhammer: Mark of Chaos as well as more units and armies, new console-specific control schemes and support for online play via Xbox LIVE. Eliminating the tedious resource management and base building that make the real-time strategy genre so daunting, the game puts the spotlight squarely on the battle.

Built around the framework of Games Workshop’s fantasy world, players will be able to control six unique armies – the Empire, Chaos, Skaven, High Elves, Dark Elves and Orcs & Goblins – as they experience the different perspectives of each faction’s quest for survival and triumph in a world torn apart by constant war. On Xbox LIVE, up to four players can engage in in head-to-head and team-based modes of play.

Warhammer: Mark of Chaos – Battle March for the PC builds upon the original game’s tactical foundation with an all-new single player campaign focusing on the Orcs & Goblins, new units for each faction and a massive, persistent new online World Domination mode. As players succeed in World Domination mode, their chosen faction will gain more influence over the world of Warhammer, encouraging gamers to work in unison with other online players to gain more territory and achieve total supremacy.
