As you can see in the 'Skulls Showcase' reveal trailer above, Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun is channelling all the classic retro first-person shooters from yesteryear. This game offers up a "hardcore, sprite-based experience" in the boots of a Space Marine. Here's some PR:
Experience a perfect blend of Warhammer 40,000 fun paired with the classic FPS gameplay, style and visuals of your favorite ‘90s retro shooters. Load up your Boltgun and plunge into action headfirst as a battle-hardened Space Marine on a perilous mission across the galaxy against the Chaos Space Marines and daemons of Chaos.
Unleash your devastating Space Marine arsenal as you blast through sprites, pixels and viscera in glorious, boomer shooter style. Run, jump and charge across huge levels to shoot, shred and slice the foulest heretics of the galaxy!
It's being developed and published by Auroch Digital Studio and Focus Entertainment, under the guidance of the Warhammer creator Games Workshop. The game has apparently been "brewing" since 2018 and is currently targeting a 2023 release for Nintendo Switch and multiple other platforms.
