Play These Warhammer Games For Free This Weekend

Warhammer Chaosbane R5 (1)

Games Workshop’s Warhammer Skulls Showcase took place yesterday, and there it was announced that various Warhammer titles would be free to keep or free to play this weekend.

If you’re a PlayStation gamer you’re unfortunately going to be left twiddling your thumbs, but on Xbox Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr, Warhammer: Chaosbane and Warhammer 40,000 Mechanicus are all free to play from 4th to 6th June. Check out our review of Inquisitor – Martyr and Chaosbane if you’d like to know more about them.

On PC, Warhammer Underworlds: Online is free to keep until 10th June on Steam, so if you think you might ever want to play it, make sure you add it to your account before then. Meanwhile, over on GOG.com, Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat is free to keep until 10th June. It comes as part of a free digital goodie pack that also includes things such as the Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus soundtrack, and a Warhammer: Mark of Chaos Collected Concept Art album. Needless to say, if you think you’ll ever want to play Shadow of the Horned Rat, or would just like some Warhammer goodies, get on there and add it to your account.

You can even get in on the free Warhammer action via your phone if you’d like. Warhammer 40,000: Lost Crusade is now free to play on mobile for the first time in the US.

Those who missed the Warhammer Skulls Showcase might be happy to hear that two brand new Warhammer games were announced. Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef is a 2D action platformer that will hit PC and consoles next year. And Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is a fast-paced, tactical turn-based RPG for PC, which will also launch next year.
