We recently had a blast with Spidersaurs, a colorful run-and-gun shooter from WayForward. That game is a bit clean cut, though, especially when compared to Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef from Rogueside and Games Workshop. Shootas, Blood, & Teef lets up to 4 local or online players team up as gun-toting Orks on a rampage in the Warhammer 40K universe. Switch and PC gamers can get in on the action now, and Xbox and PlayStation versions aren't too far behind.
Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef boasts a laundry list of features:
- Classic 2D side-scrolling goodness, filled with intense action, funny one-liners, screaming deaths and comical dialogues!
- Choose your class, picking between four distinct characters, each with their own unique toolkit true to the Warhammer 40,000 lore.
- Inflict chaos with an arsenal of weapons at your fingertips. Expand your armory with up to twenty different weapons. There’s no such thing as having too much dakka!
- Unleash your Waaagh! at the right time! Wreak carnage and rain destruction on those puny ‘umies.
- Challenge the mightiest empire in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Become victorious, bring the planet to its knees and lead your very own Waaagh!
- Earn hats by destroying compelling bosses, completing milestones or exchanging Teef at the Mekboy shop. Teef are collected by tearing through the story.
- Beautiful hand-drawn scenery gives an incredible sense of depth to a side-on world.
- Break up the action, and immerse yourselves in engaging cinematics.
- Set foot on Luteus Prime in single-player mode, or get a party together of up to four Ork Boyz and have some fun together! Multiplayer is available both online and in local co-op.
- Brawl it out against your rivals in an all-out epic battle to decide who is the baddest Ork in the warband! Up to four boyz can scrap it out in the arena, both online and in local PvP.
- Get your socks rocked off with an amazing heavy metal soundtrack, composed by Deon van Heerden.
This game looks like a grimy good time; we'll try to publish impressions soon!
