Focus Entertainment and Auroch Digital have announced Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, a 90s-style, DOOM-flavoured single-player first-person shooter coming to Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC next year.

Like classic DOOM, Wolfenstein, and their ilk, Boltgun is a frenetic and bloodsoaked affair, offering a hardcore, sprite-based experience, in which your battle-hardened Space Marine will blast a path of destruction through Chaos Daemons and Chaos Space Marines.

"We are delighted to be working on this fast-paced indie FPS alongside the talented Auroch Digital studio, and our long standing partner Games Workshop,” said Focus Entertainment CCO Dessil Basmadjian. "We are excited by Boltgun's skilful combination of iconic 90s style, the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and thrilling gameplay that is sure to delight all kinds of players."

Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun will be heading to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC sometime in 2023. Give the reveal trailer a look below.

  • Sure, this could be some fun.
  • Love Warhammer 40000k , this looks like its worth giving it a try
  • @#2 - 40000k would be 40,000,000...
  • I never played 40k: Hired Gun, but heard it was terrible. So I only hope it’s at least not as bad as that apparently was. Retro styled shooters are doing very well at the moment though, so there’s at least some hope, assuming the team have got the talent.
  • One thing you can expect with an almost 100% guarantee, is that if it's a Warhammer 40k game, its going to suck. Mechanicus, Tactics, Chaosbane, Martyr, Underhive Wars, and Hired Gun are all absolute garbage. I expect this and Space Marine 2 to follow.
  • @5 Chaosbane isn’t 40k
  • Also the first Space Marine didn't suck, or Battlesector.
  • Hired Gunwas fun. Not the best but then no one can touch DoW imo. Give it a shot if you like 40k and FPS. It’s hot solid gameplay and nice flow . Again it’s not like we are spoiled for choice and Hired Gun was best in recent years.
