EA Shutting Down Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

The developer announced that as of today, Carnage is now available on Android via Google Play for $6.99.

As with the iOS release, the Android version of Warhammer 40,000: Carnage is based on an exclusive story from the award-winning "Warhammer 40,000" author, Graham McNeill. The all-new storyline brings players to the world of Mithra. According to a press release, "Players take the role of Space Marines who can play solo or join forces with others for Fireteam missions, to battle Orks and ensure the survival of humankind. Players can gear up with more than 500 pieces of Wargear to help save the planet, or succumb to total annihilation by the vicious Green Plague!"

Warhammer 40k Coming To Phones And Tablets

“We’re thrilled to be launching Carnage on Android. It’s already proved to be a huge hit across a range of tablet and smartphone devices, so unleashing the game on Android is huge news for Warhammer 40,000 fans,” said Roadhouse President Tarrnie Williams. “The game is accessible to all, whether fans of the Warhammer 40,000 series, or new players hungry for the taste of Ork blood.”

The game earned a score of 76 from aggregate score site Metacritic, and was called a departure from the storied franchise, and while repetitive, remained a solid shooter. To celebrate the Android launch, Roadhouse has put together a trailer which you can check out below:
