A turn-based strategy game, Tyranid Invasion is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Players will command a team of Space Marines through 40 campaign missions where they'll square off against an enemy faction known as the Tyranid.

In addition to a single-player mode, Tyranid Invasion features online multiplayer battles. Players will be able to customize their squad of 40 Space Marines, equipping them with "hundreds" of skills and abilities, as well as additional items.

Tyranid Invasion is Rodeo's first title built using the Unreal Engine 4.

"We had no experience with Unreal Engine before we started work on this project, but we were able to incorporate it into our company quickly," Rodeo technical director Rich Brooks said. "It has been a joy to work with over the last year and it has allowed a small team like us to produce a high quality finished product on mobile."
