Warhammer 40,000: Darktide

Necromuda: Hired Gun is a first-person shooter (FPS) set in the universe of the wargame Warhammer 40,000. It's another trip to the 41st millennium galaxy brought to us by the Streum on Studio team and Focus Home Interactive after Space Hulk: Deathwing.

Plot

Most Warhammer 40,000 licensed games focus on one of the many conflicts between the intelligent races of the 41st millennium and the fight against the forces of Chaos. However, Necromunda: Hired Gun is based on a side game from this universe, set on the titular planet. Although it is part of the Imperium of Man, we will not find here the glory of fighting for the Emperor, but the criminal underworld of the slums of the city-cop ruled by brutal gangs. We take on the role of one of many mercenaries earning a living by carrying out a variety of tasks, mostly boiling down to eliminating the inhabitants of this dystopia.

Mechanics

The player character is not a silent assassin by any means. Equipped with a grappling hook, a wealth of (often explosive) weaponry and a host of cybernetic upgrades, and supported by a deadly dog, the protagonist is mobile and reluctant to eliminate targets discreetly. As a result, the gameplay has a lot in common with the Doom series: the player must constantly be on the move, running up walls, jumping all over the place and constantly attacking the numerous enemies, be they lowly thugs and mutants or more powerful enemies.

As you progress through the game, you'll be able to level up and gain more weapons and upgrades for yourself and your cybermastiff. This will open up new possibilities for the player and allow him to adapt the gameplay to his own preferences.

Technical aspects

Like most modern FPSs, Necromunda: Hired Gun uses realistic 3D graphics. In keeping with the game's dystopian feel, the graphics has been kept in a dark, dirty style, although locations are quite varied and constantly brightened by explosions and other special effects that accompany combat.
