Warhammer 40K: Boltgun brings the retro shooter vibes of the original Doom to the 41st Millennium. The nostalgia is strong with this one.

The game might look retro, but the gameplay will be anything but. Come take a look at Warhammer 40K’s new “boomer shooter” foray in the upcoming Warhammer 40K: Boltgun.

There was a time when Doom and its ilk ruled the landscape. Back in the days before cover and slo-mo, before battles royale and levelling up your character enough to use a broken gun. And in an homage to those halcyon days, Games Workshop has produced a retrolicious trailer for the game, complete with a 3D-printed save icon, for some reason.

Load up your Boltgun and plunge into battle headfirst! Experience a perfect blend of Warhammer 40,000, classic, frenetic FPS gameplay and the stylish visuals of your favourite 90’s retro shooters.
