Today during their annual Warhammer Skulls presentation, Games Workshop unveiled a wide array of upcoming video game projects, and old-school shooter fans will want to make sure Warhammer 40K: Boltgun is on their radar. A classic “boomer shooter” in the vein of Doom or Quake, Boltgun looks to deliver all the mayhem and chunky graphics you could hope for. Let the pixelated blood fly, baby! You can check out the debut trailer for Warhammer 40K: Boltgun, below.
At the risk of dating myself, the original Quake is still my FPS sweet spot, so I’m definitely intrigued by Warhammer 40K: Boltgun. According to Focus Entertainment CCO Dessil Basmadjian, Boltgun has been a long time in the making, beginning development back in 2018. Need to know more about the project? Here’s the game’s official description…
