Mobile - Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest is out now, but don’t play it

Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest is out now, but don’t play it

By Ian Boudreau 30 May 2019

Here’s some good news: A new Warhammer game is out for mobile, and in it, you get to play Chaos. It’s called Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest, and it’s available on both Android and iOS. The promotional materials bill it as an “epic massively-multiplayer real-time strategy game” set in the Warhammer fantasy universe, and the idea is that you’ll build a stronghold while spreading the rather forceful message of Chaos across the Old World.

Now here’s the bad news: It’s trash. This is a game that is based on making you wait for timers to tick down, and charges you currency – conveniently available to buy for real money! – to speed that process up.

For you, gentle reader, I’ve attempted to play Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest, because I felt that I should at least experience the “real time strategy” element of this new game before rendering judgment on the rest. And in the hour or so I’ve spent mucking with Chaos & Conquest, that aspect is nowhere to be found. This is a game about clicking “upgrade” and then waiting. There’s no strategy to be found here, or if there is, it’s buried under enough layers of pay-to-win fluff to render the search for it a waste of time.

Here’s a trailer, which features a bunch of stuff that never happens in the game itself:


The visuals are nice, I’ll give it that much I suppose. But none of it makes any sense whatsoever, and it’s all designed to suck money out of anyone deranged enough to get addicted to its utterly rote gameplay loop of watching numbers get bigger.

Consider this a public service announcement from your friends at Pocket Tactics: Avoid this nonsense like the plague, and remember that not everything Games Workshop slaps its name on is worth your time.
