Games Workshop To Try To Improve Warhammer Franchise
Personally, my first encounter with a Warhammer game was the impossibly difficult ‘Shadow of the Horned Rat’. A game I would only recommend to masochists.
There is, however, something of a problem with the franchise. Namely, that in terms of releases, the vast majority have been a rather weak affair with only a few standout titles. A good example of this was the Dawn of War series which started great, got ok, and ended up being awful.
In a report via PCGamesN, however, it has been revealed that Games Workshop plans to significantly up their standards in the future. Specifically, to ensure that better quality games are released.
Upping Their Standards
In the report, developers at Eko Studio has revealed that Games Workshop is, on the whole, largely unhappy with a significant number of games released or more accurately licensed by them. The developer themselves admit that they have been responsible for more than a few of these.
“I think the harder part was to convince them that we could do a good game. I think they are aware that they have done some not very good games.” – Eko Studios
In fairness, I think it’s a fair point. Having played many Warhammer related games, I think that they have mostly been, at the very least, disappointing. Space Marines, for example, was not bad but spoke much more of the missed potential.
Hopefully, this announcement will result in some far more positive releases in the future. We can but hope!
