The Upcoming Retro-Inspired Warhammer FPS Is Discounted For PC


For a limited time, you can preorder Warhammer 40K: Boltgun–the upcoming old-school-style FPS set in the Warhammer 40K universe–for just $18.25 (normally $20) at Fanatical.

In Warhammer 40K: Boltgun, you play as a Space Marine of the Ultramarines Chapter, clad in giant blue power armor and toting an arsenal of high-powered weapons–including the titular Boltgun and the iconic chainsaw sword–against the armies of the Chaos gods. The fast-paced FPS gameplay and chunky, low-poly visuals are inspired by retro shooters of the 90s. It looks to be a frantic, gory romp through the Warhammer 40K universe. Even the game’s key art makes homage to the classic Doom box cover.

Fanatical’s Boltgun preorder discount ends on the game’s release date, May 23, and only applies to the PC version. Preorders also come with a 5%-off coupon usable on other Fanatical purchases. It’s eligible for Fanatical’s limited-time “May Madness Spin to Win” offer, which gives you a chance to win bonus discount coupons, free games, or even PC hardware bundles from HP.

Along with the PC release, Warhammer 40K: Boltgun also launches for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox on May 23.
