established series into social-oriented card games, Games Workshop has lent the Warhammer license to mobile developer HeroCraft for Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf.
The free-to-play adaption of the Warhammer series will incorporate cards as a means to advance through turn-based, grid-oriented battles. Example cards included with the press release depict equippable weapons and cards necessary for the movement of units. Winning battles is rewarded with "new weapons, bonuses and tactic cards."
Space Wolf's campaign will include branching storylines and focus on battling the Word Bearers and stopping the awakened mechanical Necron race. Players will pick a unit from the Grey Hunter, Wolf Scout, Blood Claw, or Wolf Guard classes depending on their preferred style and tactics.
Space Wolf is planned to draw its launch card sometime in 2014 on iOS, Android and PC.
Update: The article originally stated that the Word Bearers served the Necron race. It has since been corrected to resemble reality.
