Necromunda goes FPS with Focus Home’s Hired Gun

The seedy underbelly of one of Warhammer 40k’s massive cities is back, this time in an FPS. Stay hello to Necromunda: Hired Gun.

It’s good for business

Warhammer 40k fans recently saw the Necromunda tabletop game make the jump to video gaming. It was thanks to Underhive Wars that gamers got to plunge into strategy-based gang warfare, WH40K style. But if you’re a little more action-minded, then you’re going to want to check out the next game that will brandish the title – Hired Gun.

Necromunda: Hired Gun comes from Focus Home and developer Streum On Studio, and brings the city in question down to ground level. Or actually, maybe not since the game will allow all manner of acrobatic action moves. Oh, and a cybernetic dog too.

As you can see, Hired Gun is looking phenomenal. The game will offer plenty of upgrades for your character as you play. And that also includes your cyber-mastiff, who you can boost with new tech… and treats (seriously, I think).

He’s a weapon that you’ll want to take care of too, since he’ll be quite valuable in combat. Hired Gun’s good boy will be able to take down enemies with one bite from his cyber-choppers.

Ready to take the war to the gangs, for the highest bidder? If you are, then you’ll be happy to know that Necromunda: Hired Gun is pretty far along already, and set for a June launch on consoles and the PC.

It’s actually ready for pre-order too, and comes with a few little niceties if you secure yourself a copy. Those include “a new look for your knife, revolver and outfit, plus a unique chew toy for your dog.”
