Set in the grim, dark future of Warhammer 40,000 ‘Eisenhorn: XENOS' lets you experience firsthand the story of Gregor Eisenhorn, an Inquisitor and member of the ‘Ordo Xenos', sent out to fight and protect the Imperium of man from anything that may threaten it.
Players will get to play through and experience the events of 'Xenos' as Eisenhorn himself (as voiced by Mark Strong), exploring the vast expanse of the Warhammer 40k universe in ways never seen before.
Eisenhorn: XENOS Teaser
Story can’t be the thing that carries a video game and story is all Eisenhorn: XENOS has. A character as powerful as Gregor Eisenhor, with a great voice actor in Mark Strong, and an epic story deserves more than a glorified version of a mobile game. But brainless combat and mechanics, crummy audio, and unacceptable bugs keep this game to no more than a book promotion.
The game probably would have benefited by just being a mobile game, as it does not stand well in what is expected from a PC game, but there are still design choices which come into question anyways. It does not take full advantage of what the narrative has to offer, and while it is limited by it, the game still is a mess of various ideas. If you want to experience the story of Eisenhorn that badly, this might be for you, but it is not going to win any new customers for Games Workshop’s beloved franchise.
