A brutal take on a time-honoured board game

Set in the Segmentum Obscurus, the story begins with the death-rattle of a proud Imperial world and the victorious warcry of its alien conquerors. The Orks live only to wage unending war, and know it is only a matter of time before the Imperial war machine responds to their invasion.

Regicide, the strategy game based on chess set in the classic Warhammer 40,000 Universe from Games Workshop is an adaptation of ‘Regicide’, a board game described from the Warhammer 40,000 universe with similarities to the M2-era chess; played by mankind for over thirty-eight thousand years. Regicide blends board-game strategy mechanics with dynamic tactical abilities.

Easy to learn, difficult to master – think outside the board and explore a new take on the rules of traditional chess: command different races with unique abilities, fight for varied game objectives, and call in strikes from off the board as you face off in multiple game modes. Battle across a single-player Blood Angels’ campaign. Challenge opponents worldwide in both ‘Regicide’ and ‘Classic’ matches online, with ELO-rated stats and more to come!
