Focus Entertainment and Auroch Digital have confirmed a release date for Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun on Nintendo Switch.
This retro-inspired sprite-based, single-player first-person shooter promises to deliver a “bloody and frenetic homage to the retro shooters of yore.” It places you in the boots of a battle-hardened Space Marine on a perilous mission across the galaxy, plunged into a battle against the Chaos Space Marines and daemons of Chaos.
You will have the chance to unleash your devastating arsenal in “glorious boomer shooter style,” blasting your way through an explosion of sprites, pixels and blood as you eliminate the worst heretics in the galaxy.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:
- Dive into a visceral combat experience, complete with viciously satisfying gunplay, high mobility and buckets of blood to reward your skills.
- Dominate the battlefield with the awesome firepower and heavy metal of a Space Marine’s devastating arsenal.
- Experience the ultimate homage to retro shooters, blending stylish visuals with fluid, modern FPS gameplay.
Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 23rd May 2023.
