Couldn't find a thread for this so here it is.

According to a Finnish gaming magazine its a: "multiplayer Skaven slaughter in Left 4 Dead style". The magazine has a bigger story on it.
There is a cool looking cover with a Grey Seer. But I can't post it here or somebody will shout at me.
Could be neat I guess. More love for the loathsome Ratmen and all their vile kin, is always good.

Edit : More scans and info have surfaced.

>Game is actually four player co-op FPS game. Game is based in Ubersreik city, which during the End Times was conquered by skaven. Four humans of Empire come to the city and have to liberate the city from skaven by doing missions.

>According to team, their goal is to make the game as merciless and challenging as possible.

>Team chose Skaven because they rely a lot on numbers and they are not orcs, which has been seen too many times already in other games.

>Seems like L4D's AI thing has been copied too. Enemies might not spawn on the same spot as they did in the last play. And of course this game has "special enemies" too, like the tongue zombie in L4D, except this time the skaven drags you to the enemy horde, not just standing and choking you. There is also skavens with rattling guns.

>Playable characters however are not copies from each other. There will be five characters to choose form. They revealed two, one being witch hunter which hates skavens because of rat stole his eye. He has pistols and daggers and is special on 1v1 fighting.

>Other one is fire mage, who is said to be pyromaniac insane old woman. She is powerful, but if she keeps on doing spells all the time, she will heat up and could burst into flames and kill herself.

>Every character has their own story

>These stories will not be told in cutscenes.

>As said before, this is co-op game that has missions. In one tavern you hear tips and new missions that you can do with your pals. Here you can also see your achievements and other stuff while waiting for other players

>During the game you collect different kind of weapons, items and other stuff. Also yes, there is loot in this game

They're in Blood Bowl obviously (and are one of the most fun teams to play with), and they're in Mordheim.

Oh, yeah, and Shadow of the Horned Rat, which I had somehow completely forgotten about.

They'll approve pretty much anything as long as it isn't a faithful reproduction of any of their franchises which only 5% of the gaming population can afford to play. Blood Bowl may be an exception, but even that could have been done better.

But I do have to admit that my love for the Skaven has me interested in this title, at least from a conceptual standpoint. Though the cynic in me will be waiting to call this one another missed opportunity or clunky mess.

This. I guess we are going to be using the generic witch hunter, imperial guard captain and bright mage combo? Atleast we can play as Skaven on the otherside like zombies in L4D right?

Only thing kinda shakey about this is Fatshark. I liked lead and gold but no one played it and the netcode felt wonky. Krater was yeah, and both War of Roses and Vikings had shit netcode. This might be the break they need though. Definitely excited about everything else!!

That would be great. I think the last non 40k game I played was Dark Omen, way back in 1998.

Lead and gold was a solid multiplayer shooter effort, but the community died out pretty quickly. That's somewhat less of an issue with a L4D style game though..

Oh man so nice to see more Warhammer Fantasy games coming out. 40K usally gets all the love. Also nice too see one of the lesser races used. It's always the Orks, Elves or humans. I don't think we've seen Skaven in a game since Mark of Chaos.

Too bad it isn't third person because Witch Hunters look very cool.

Fatshark is a 50/50 developer. Half their games are good the other half are not. I'm hoping they get the time to make it one of the former.
