ABOUT THE GAME:

Faithful to the Warhammer® license, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos puts the focus squarely on the battlefield with a real-time combat system that gives the player unprecedented customization and control of his army.

An epic battle rages following a brutal Chaos invasion, where four fully playable armies (Empire, Chaos, Skaven, and High Elves) as well as additional controllable races (Orcs and Goblins, Dwarfs, and Vampire Counts) clash on a massive battlefield.

Key Features

MASTER THE ART OF WAR: Warhammer: Mark of Chaos is about WAR, focusing on the armies and battles while de-emphasizing the tedious aspects of base and resource management.

EPIC, VISCERAL BATTLES ON A MASSIVE SCALE: Epic sense of both scale and detail where big demons and huge beautifully rendered battalions clash with thousands of characters battling on screens in intricate detail.

USE ENVIRONMENTS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE: A wide variety of terrain such as forests, swamps, plains, and tundra challenge players to adapt to their surroundings, adding a new layer of strategy and providing infinite replayability.

COMMAND HEROES AND CHAMPIONS: As armies move from battle to battle in an epic war, Heroes and Champions learn new tactics, unlock new abilities, command larger units, even challenge other Champions in a duel to the death.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR ARMY: Warhammer: Mark of Chaos takes customization to a new level by allowing for body part swaps, weapon and armor enhancements, and more powerful controls to paint units and customize banners. Additionally, players can accent armies with mercenaries and "Dogs of War", augmenting the look and play of their army for a unique game experience.

VARIETY OF PLAY MODES: Two extensive and thrilling single player campaigns provide dozens of hours of campaigning fun, and a full assortment of multiplayer modes for both casual and competitive gamers awaits players to customize their armies and take them online to battle alongside their friends and against real world opponents.

Warhammer: Mark of Chaos is rated "M" for "Mature" and carries an MSRP of $49.99.
