Storm of Vengeance is an action strategy game set in Warhammer 40k universe, it is developed and published by Eutechnyx in collaboration with Games Workshop, the creators of the original Warhammer table top games. Eutechnyx is a well established independent studio known for PC and console racing games like Auto Club Revolution or Nascar the Game: Inside Line. Storm of Vengeance is developed for Microsoft Windows but also for mobile operating systems. It’s not exactly a MMORPG game that supports hundreds or thousands of interacting users but it does provide online play just like Smite, Dota2 or League of Legends.
New mechanics and features are the reasons why Storm of Vengeance is advertised as a “lane strategy game” and not a traditional MOBA. The battle map is made up of 5 paths or lanes. Players use these lanes to advance towards the enemy base. Storm of Vengeance headquarters also have buildings slots where players can construct various facilities. RPG elements are introduced with a feature called the skill tree. This system allows players to choose from multiple development paths and build a unique Storm of Vengeance gameplay experience. New buildings with advanced functionalities are unlocked using the skill tree. Players use units to fight their enemies. Just like buildings units become available when unlocking certain skill tree abilities. Unit customization is supported as well. Each unit has unique talents. Assault Marines are able to switch lanes, other units have area of effect attacks that inflict damage on enemies placed on adjacent lanes. Ravenwing and Ork Trukk are vehicles that serve multiple purposes.
Storm of Vengeance, the game, is based on the campaign with same name from Warhammer 40K universe. It tells the story of a massive conflict between Piscina IV defending forces and the Ork invaders. The stakes are high because losing Piscina IV might mean the start of Ork domination over the entire galaxy. Ghazghkull and Nazdreg are the 2 Ork commanders that joined armies to conquer the planet. Master Belial and his Dark Angels are the opposing force. The original Storm of Vengeance is a complex scenario but the game aims to simplify things. Storm of Vengeance has a single player campaign that recreates Piscina IV battles. Game atmosphere stays true to the dark theme from the original campaign. Players get to encounter fantasy creatures like bomb squigs or gretchins. Storm of Vengeance is the perfect choice for veteran Warhammer 40k fans that want to enjoy some of their favorite scenarios on PCs or mobile devices in a MMO environment.
