Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is a bolters-and-chainswords tackle chess that was adequate to land sq. in the course of our grand rating of each WH40K game ever. Sadly, its days of glory are over: After seven years of operation, the servers have been closed and the Regicide has been delisted from Steam and cell storefronts.

“Thanks for an unbelievable seven years of Warhammer 40,000 Regicide 2015-2022!” the studio introduced final week. “Congratulations to all our ranked match event individuals with over 300,000 energetic gamers and over 600,000 matches in every mode.

“Sadly, we regretfully announce the quick closure of the servers and will probably be unlisting the Steam Launch, Google Play Retailer, and the iOS App Retailer from At the moment, the 14th of October, 2022.”

The excellent news for anybody who owns the game is that Regicide will proceed to function offline. The dangerous information is that the marketing campaign is “the weakest a part of Regicide,” we stated in our 70% evaluate. Happily, the skirmish mode—which is where Regicide actually shines—can also be playable offline, and higher-level AIs make for a fairly good problem.

Hammerfall did not say why Regicide was taken offline, though it is not all that uncommon for the plug to be pulled on older video games. What’s a bit unusual on this occasion is how all of a sudden all of it appeared to occur. The announcement of the closure and delisting on Steam, which went up earlier at the moment—a full week after the game was delisted—is the primary update since July 2017, and several other individuals have complained that it occurred with out advance warning.

“Good, they’re shutting down the servers,” TheBlasterMaster wrote in a single significantly succinct response. “Purchased this not way back. BS.”

I’ve reached out to Hammerfall for extra info on the shutdown and can update if I obtain a reply.
