New NECROMUNDA: UNDERHIVE WARS Trailers Focus on Gang Management and Fighter Progression

The long wait it almost over, as Rogue Factor's ambitious answer to Gears: Tactics and Othercide — titled Necromunda: Underhive Wars — will finally arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) next week.

At its core, Necromunda: Underhive Wars is an action-packed turn-based strategy game set below the hive cities of Necromunda. As the leader of your gang, you will fight for personal power and wealth, trying to avoid direct contact with three deadly enemy factions — House Goliath, House Escher and House Orlock.

For those unfamiliar with Necromunda: Underhive Wars, Focus Home Interactive has released some never-before-seen trailers, focusing on the aforementioned gangs, and progression and customisation systems.

In the X-COM–like game, your gang is fully customizable, which means that you will be able to decide who's in it, what their skills are, the powerful weapons they wield, and also how they look. According to the studio, there are "active, gang, veterancy, and many more skills to choose from." You will also have a chance to pick from dozens of "piercings, tattoos, and much more as you craft the best gang in the Underhive."

It's worth remembering that Necromunda: Underhive Wars is not the only big game set in the ever-evolving Warhammer 40,000 world currently in the works, as Fatshark's spiritual successor to their own Warhammer: Vermintide — but with guns — will hit stores next year under the name of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.

Considering that Necromunda: Underhive Wars will make its long-awaited debut this Tuesday, September 8, it won't be long before you get your own chance to play the Mordheim: City of the Damned studio's latest game. In the meantime, be sure to take a closer look at the new videos shared by Focus Home down below:

Necromunda: Underhive Wars brings you closer to the action than any tactical game before, giving you an over-the-shoulder view of every lethal takedown, brutal melee engagement and explosive firefight. Dive deep in the twisted, vertiginous, dark tunnels of the Underhive in this tactical RPG’s compelling story campaign and Salvage Operations, where rival gangs will fight to the bitter end for personal power, wealth, survival and the honour of their Houses.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) on September 8.
