Fans of Games Workshop’s tabletop warband game Mordheim will be excited to learn that a video game adaptation is in the works from Focus Home Interactive, and it looks to be a near-perfect translation even up to and including elements like permadeath and limb loss.

The press release for the game – there’s no official site up yet, or trailer – explains that the game will include the iconic Mordheim factions including Skaven, Sisters of Sigmar, Possessed and more, and will replicate the turn-based strategy of the original game as well as the original looting and weapon-stealing system. A solo campaign and multiplayer modes will be available.

A release date is given as “Fall 2014″, so sometime around September – November for us here in the southern hemisphere.

This does look pretty exciting :)

The bloodbowl video game is pretty slick so fingers crossed for this

I just hope GW don't relaunch Mordheim with new rules and kits as I know I wouldn't be able to resist

This may be the first new game I get that isn't abandonware since M&B Warband :)

Doubt on the modding front, though they might go the way of bloodbowl which is have three versions of the same game but with later versions add more teams

I'm not so sure they will this time, it received fairly heavy backlash from fans as it was pretty much a bug fix patch plus a couple of new races per 'expansion'...Would have been so much better in DLC format imo.

Expansion is more likely to be the woodland variation (I have it but can't remember the name). I would think and hope that additional factions would be DLC and priced accordingly.

I think Empire in Flames is what you're after?

Yeah that's the one :D

I'm pretty excited for this as well, if it's anything like as good as blood bowl I'll be sinking a few hundred hours into that one as well :P

Anyone else think that their 'late 2014' release date may be too ambitious given that the website isn't properly up yet? :P
