Games Workshop is on a roll this week with the announcement of yet another Warhammer 40k based game in development.
Warhammer 40k: Space Wolf is a free-to-play turn based tactical card game in development by HeroCraft. It sounds like the game is trying to be a lot of things but looking at the video and some screenshots it might just be able to pull it off. The game is expected to release some time in 2014 on Android, iOS, and PC.
Check out the trailer below and read on after the break for the full press release.
