Wednesday 23rd August, Basingstoke, UK... Deep Silver and Namco Bandai today fashioned new screenshots for Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - the real-time strategy game that focuses on all-out war and the intricate customisation of your armies.

Boasting incredible attention to detail, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos lets you zoom out to a near orbital perspective to take in breathtaking vistas of the battle or zoom in so close you can see individual insignias on a unit's armour. Remaining faithful to the Warhammer universe, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos, developed by Black Hole Entertainment, concentrates on battlefield mayhem and bloody carnage with a real-time combat system that gives the player unprecedented customisation and control of his army.

A battle of epic proportions rages throughout the land following an invasion by the Chaos legions, where four fully playable armies (Empire, Chaos, Skaven, and High Elves) as well as additional controllable races (Orcs and Goblins, Dwarfs, and Vampire Counts) go toe-to-toe on gigantic battlefields.

Game 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 daemons and huge beautifully rendered battalions clash with thousands of characters battling on screens in intricate detail.

· Use environments to your advantage

A variety of buildable features and randomized, destructible terrains such as forests, swamps, plains, and tundra change the shape of the battlefield and add a layer of strategy that provides 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.

· Customise your army

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

· Variety of play modes

Dynamic cooperative campaign mode and a full assortment of multiplayer modes for both casual and competitive gamers.
