Warhammer 40,000: Warpforge set to reveal the new Necron faction and a demo for PC players later this month

The collectable card battler based on the extremely popular Warhammer 40,000 universe - appropriately entitled Warhammer 40,000: Warpforge - has announced not only a new demo on its way come January 19th, but also the full reveal of a brand new race that will be in the game on launch. Unfortunately, this demo will only be available to PC players on Steam, but given that Warpforge is confirmed to be coming to mobile as well, this new race reveal is certainly worth a look.

In case you aren’t familiar, Warhammer 40,000: Warpforge was announced back during the Skulls event, and is looking to contend with the likes of Hearthstone or Legends of Runeterra by allowing fans of the collectable card dueler genre to dig their teeth into a Warhammer 40K themed variant. It looks quite lovely, and could very well be the next big mobile card game given just how huge this IP is.

As for this newly revealed race, fans of the universe will recognize the legendary Necron race by name alone. For those of us that aren’t hip to Warhammer lore, the Necrons are an ancient race that ruled the galaxy before humans even existed. They’re robotic in nature and are infamously unkillable due to their self-repairing bodies. Now, they intend on taking back their galaxy by force.

The specific part of this race that will be in Warpforge on launch is the Sautekh Dynasty, who are focused around reanimating fallen troops and making themselves a horde of basically unkillable cards to swarm your foe with. How exactly this will translate to competitive card gameplay is yet to be seen, so be sure to check for updates come the 19th when they’re fully revealed.

Till then, you can check out the official Warpforge website for a deeper look at the upcoming card game based on one of the biggest properties within the sci-fi genre!
