Warhammer 40,000: Dakka Squadron Takes The Series To The Skies

Due out later this year on consoles and PC.

5 Comments

Between Total War: Warhammer, Space Hulk: Tactics, Warhammer: End Time - Vermintide, and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine--among dozens and dozens of others--the Warhammer franchise has touched pretty much every genre imaginable. Up until this point, however, there haven't been any flight sims.

Warhammer 40,000: Dakka Squadron, announced today by developer Phosphor Games, fills that gap. From the name alone, die-hard Warhammer fans will know the game focuses on Orks, the hilarious green-skinned-maniacs who love warfare more than any other faction in the Warhammer universe.

Players will be able to choose from one of five Ork Clans in Dakka Squadron: Blood Axes, Goffs, Bad Moons, Death Skullz, and Evil Sunz. Each faction has their own unique traits and abilities, taking to the skies in Dakkajets, Blitza-Bommas, and Burna-Bommas.

You begin as a lowly Flyboy who gradually climbs the ladder to become a feared Ork Warboss. There are over 20 missions to fight through during the campaign; you'll learn special manoeuvres along the way, as well as honing your dog fighting, dive bombing, and carpet bombing skills in varied air-to-air and air-to-ground missions.

Warhammer 40,000: Dakka Squadron is set to release later this year for consoles and PC, but no specific platforms have yet been announced.

Unfortunately I think that this game is going to fail big time! I am a die hard fan of the series and most of the games that I liked were created by Relic (OK, didn't love the second or the third dawn of war) both Space marine hell yeah. I am hoping that one day we shall finally get an RTS game we deserve from Relic, Relic you better not **** up Age of Empires IV!
