Eisenhorn Gameplay Trailer

In all honesty, I didn't even know this was a thing! But apparently GW are allowing somebody to make an Eisenhorn PC game. I love the Eisenhorn books, I have some of the original paperbacks, signed by Dan Abnett himself, so I'm in the target market for this game!

Having now watched the trailer, my observations would be that its quite a dark trailer. And by that I don't mean grimdark, I mean hard to see. I don't know if its the setting of my work PC, but I was struggling to see what was going on. I'm sure you could adjust that though. It also looks quite a bit like the Space Marine game mixed with Assassins Creed. Stealth with button bashing.

Inspite of these two things, I'm cautiously optimistic about it. If my PC/ Xbox 360 will run it, I might consider it. Those books were one of the things that really got me into the 40k universe in a big way, and I did quite enjoy Space Marine and Firewarrior. Im not a massive Assassins creed fan, but I suppose you've got to use different tactics if you're an Inquisitor compared with being a Battle Brother of the Adeptus Astartes.....


  1. The combat looks a bit samey. Then I saw the Android logo at the end. Is this a mobile/ tablet game? If you get to play as Eisenhorn's retinue as well as the man himself I may be sold on it.

  3. yeah I think playing as the retinue would be pretty cool. I dunno, I kinda hope its not a tablet/phone game - its doesn't feel like a "real" video game when its on one of them
