New Necromunda Hired Gun Trailer Is Warhammer 40K At Its Finest


The upcoming Warhammer 40K shooter, Necromunda: Hired Gun, just saw its latest trailer drop, and boy, is it glorious. Also, just in case you've been wondering, the new trailer proves that the deadly in-game cyber mastiff of yours is a true companion, as the good ol' boy is just as vicious when ripping enemies to shreds as he is cute whenever you're petting him.

What Does the New Necromunda Hired Gun Trailer Bring?

Necromunda: Hired Gun will apparently have a central hub where players can buy weapons, upgrades, mods, and exchange information.

Just in case you missed it, Necromunda: Hired Gun is the latest title set in the Warhammer 40K universe. However, unlike most Warhammer 40K games, this one is a purely single-player experience. The shooter was leaked earlier this year before subsequently being officially announced.

From what we've already seen in the previous trailer, we know that the game Necromunda: Hired Gun is set in the dark and grimy undergrounds of one of the many manufacturing worlds of the Imperium of Mankind empire. However, the new trailer for Necromunda: Hired Gun shows a lot more.

For example, we now know that players will get a chance to interact with a bunch of factions. This includes the Imperial Inquisition, as well as mutants, gang members, and enforcers, among others.

The newest trailer also shows how players can customize and design their character in the game. Necromunda: Hired Gun will give players as many as 12 different types of bionic implants. Players can then use these to modify their characters in the game however they see fit.

Speaking of modification, Necromunda: Hired Gun will come with what it refers to as an endless weapon upgrade system. The said system will afford players a chance to deck out all weapons that they can get their hands on in the game.

Of course, who could ever forget the aforementioned half-canine cybernetic companion?  The equal parts deadly and cuddly mutt will accompany you through your adventures in Necromunda: Hired Gun. You'll even get a chance to reward your trusty doggo with treats. Surely, that's a worthy reward after a long day of hunting bounties in no man's land.

Coincidentally, the latest trailer for Necromunda: Hired Gun drops following Focus Interactive's acquisition of Streum on Studio. The former will serve as the producer of Necromunda: Hired Gun. The two previously worked together with another Warhammer 40K first-person shooter title, Space Hulk: Death Wing.

When Is the Necromunda Hired Gun Release Date?

At the moment, all signs point to Necromunda: Hired Gun releasing on time on June 1. The game will see a simultaneous release on the Xbox Series S/X, PlayStation 5, as well as the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
