The developers behind the over-the-top run & gun gangster game Guns, Gore & Cannoli are officially trying their hand at adapting the Warhammer series into 2D. This announcement took place during the Warhammer Skulls Livestream, showing off a trailer for the upcoming game, titled Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef, which will be a 2D run & gun platformer.
In the video below, you can see how the series translates into the 2D style, showing off what it will be like when players spearhead an Ork invasion to destroy the hive city and kill your warboss.
Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef’s Steam page detailed the following description:
The Orks, a savage race commonly known as the ‘Green Tide’, sweep across the stars with unrivaled violence in frenzied crusades known as a Waaagh! They are savage, brutal, and crude, outnumbering all other races that lay in their path of destruction.
Become the spearhead of an Ork invasion as you bash, smash and shoot your way through the hive city of Luteus Prime on a mission to retrieve your hair squig and claim vengeance on your warlord! And just maybe become the warboss of a WAAAGH! along the way? Survival of the strongest has never been so violently fun!
The page also revealed that players will be able to team up with friends to take on the forces of Astra Militarum, the Genestealer Cults and the Space Marines together. It also seems you’ll be able to compete against one another in PvP as well.
While there isn’t an exact release date yet, Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef has been confirmed for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Switch.
