Espoo, Finland, April 6, 2006 - Nokia, Games Workshop and THQ Wireless, a subsidiary of THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI), today announced that they have shipped Warhammer 40,000: Glory in Death. N-Gage gamers can now choose their identities and become either Ork, Eldar, Space Marine or Chaos Space Marine as they battle for supremacy of the universe.
"With the combination of classic gameplay, intense storyline and exclusive artwork, fans and newcomers alike will fall under the spell of Glory in Death," said Timo Toivanen, product marketing manager of Nokia Games Division. "Also, thanks to Bluetooth technology and Hotseat functionality, gamers will be able to pit themselves against their friends - wherever they are."
The rich history of Warhammer 40,000 has been brought to life with illustrations from cult graphic artist Mike McMahon, whose artwork has appeared in a number of fantasy franchises including 2000 AD, and a storyline conceived by veteran screenwriter and Warhammer 40,000 expert, Andy Walsh.
The highly acclaimed Warhammer 40,000 universe from Games Workshop has been adapted and developed for the N-Gage games platform for fans to unite and embark in single player campaign mode or two player Hotseat with one N-Gage game deck, or two players via Bluetooth.
