The March edition of White Dwarf will come with all of the usual news, battle reports and painting guides as you would expect from the long running Games Workshop publication. What you might not expect is the addittion of a unique Steam code that will grant you ownership of twelve Warhammer themed games.
The games on offer cover both Warhammer fantasy and 40k and should have something for every fan of either Warhammer universe. I won’t lie, not all of the titles are great but there are three that stand out and don’t forget that this Steam key is completely free.
For me, the three standout games are Warhammer: Vermintide 2, Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War and Total War: Warhammer 1. All of these games offer a different style of play to each other and have scored very well on Steam over the years.
The twelve games included with the free key are:
The critically acclaimed Vermintide 2 is a visually stunning melee action game. Fight as one of five heroes against countless hordes of skaven and legions of Chaos in a game that pushes the genre’s boundaries.
