Games Workshop's Warhammer fantasy universe is the magical orcy-elfy-dwarfy foundation for not just one but two PC games currently in development. Dark Age of Camelot developer Mythic is busy moulding Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning into a WoW-clobbering MMORPG while Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - the game we're concerned with here - is leading a charge onto the RTS battlefield courtesy of Namco Bandai and developer Black Hole Entertainment.
Warhammer's a rich, established and very popular universe and so we're interested to see what Black Hole makes of its transition to the RTS genre. We're promised that Mark of Chaos remains faithful to the license - note, Warhammer fans - with the game's storyline relating the tale of mass conflict in the wake of a Chaos invasion.
Empire, Chaos, Skaven and High Elves are present as playable armies, players additionally getting to control Orcs, Dwarfs, Vampires and Goblins in Warhammer clashes - which are going to be pretty epic judging by the new trailer that's been released, viewable on this here page.
Warhammer: Mark of Chaos is currently pencilled in for an autumn 2006 release.
