The new year of 2015 does not exactly start off with a bang. The new video game releases for the week of January 4, 2015 are of a better caliber than the previous week’s, which you can view on theInquisitr’s weekly column here. Looking at the new video games for the week, the PC still holds the majority of the titles, with Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft offering one or two titles each.
Of the PC game releases, Warhammer Quest is shaping to be the highest profile release. The game is a digital interpretation of the classic Games Workshop board game set in the Warhammer universe. A turn-based strategy game, it allows the player to control a team of heroes and explore the dungeons around the long-running fantasy world.
According to the official press release, “As massive fans of the Warhammer universe, we have spent our development time working with Rodeo Games and focusing on what made ‘Warhammer Quest’ such a great table top game,” said Ian Baverstock, Director of Chilled Mouse. “With truly unique hero characters, epic role-playing action, awesome loot and randomly generated dungeons, Warhammer Quest is a true digital incarnation of its namesake.”
Available on January 7, 2015, through Steam for Windows PC, Mac, and Linux, Warhammer Quest will be available at $14.99, including three areas and the Vampire and Zombie content pack.
Another PC game amongst the new releases for the week is a Steam Greenlight game, Project Aura. Tasked with a colony of survivors from a massive planetary climate change, players will be given a colony underneath a dome that is at a state of non production. A combination of real time strategy and city simulator, Project Aura sees the colony grow by increasing population, infrastructure improvements, technology research. Success is based off becoming a self-sufficient colony or based on commerce with other colonies in the game world.
Available on January 5, 2015, through Steam for Windows PC.
