Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade brings explosive mech warfare to Windows 10 PC, Mobile

Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade is now available on the Windows Store for Windows 10 PC and Mobile. And even if you haven't dipped your toes into the Warhammer universe yet, you're definitely in for a treat if you're partial to explosive mech warfare.

The Warhammer franchise isn't one to shy away from over the top action, and Freeblade is no exception. The story of the game puts you in the shoes of a young Imperial Knight as you join up with a chapter of the Space Marines following the destruction of your noble house. Throughout 170 missions, you'll tear apart other mechs and enemies as you upgrade and customize your Freeblade.

Given its level of visual fidelity, Freeblade looks like it will require a somewhat beefy phone if you're looking to play it on Mobile. The minimum specs require 2GB of RAM and 1GB of video memory, while 4GB of RAM and 2GB of video memory are recommended.

You can grab Freeblade for free from the Windows Store now, but be aware that there are in-app purchases.

  • Got it, brilliant game with Continuum support. Didn't expect to see it on Win10M but its a welcomed addition.
  • How is performance on mobile? I have a Lumia 950 and kinda wanna check this out.
  • It runs fairly well on my 950XL Not sure if it's quad-HD but it seems like it is. As it's free - why not try it. I will say that my phone doesn't get hot at all - which is a good sign.
  • Ah, forgot to mention i have it on 950XL. One issue though was it got stuck in the intro as if it froze, then continued after about 10secs...i may have impatient and tapped the screen so missed the story.
  • I'm running it on the Creators Edition of Win 10 mobile on 950XL and didn't experience any freezes but then I may not have had much running on my phone. Obviously on a phone, your fingers are going to hide a lot of the screen but still glad to see it on Win 10 mobile. I also quite like Paradise Bay. It's a shame the Microsoft Store still makes it quite tough to find decent games. They are there, hidden and I only came across this one by luck.
  • Same here but for me the only freeze happened during the intro vid.... It just kept saying loading. Anyway game is a blast so far.
  • Are you on anniversary or creators build cause I'm on anniversary with my 950xl and the game runs good but phone gets hot as hell. Nvm see you said creators. Mb my phone won't get so hot when I get the update. Fingers crossed
  • I'm on creators update fast ring. Heat when playing graphics heavy games on WP isn't new to me. I still have burns from the 920/1020 days 😀
  • It runs fine on my 950
  • The fact that this is possible is absolutely amazing.
  • Yes awesome addition.
  • Glad you covered this. It's a fantastic game and I hope people support the developer for bringing it to our platform.
  • This game is awesome! Runs great on the Lumia 950
  • Finally, did not expect this to come out for WP. Managed to play on Android phone before, now I don't have to do that. As with others, there was long loading on intro screen for some reason on a 950 XL, the HTC M7 did that way faster for some reason. Probably some bug due to it being a port.
  • The story of the game puts you in the shoes of a young Imperial Knight
    No, the Imperial Knights are the mechs themselves, not soldiers.
  • They should bring this to Xbox One.
  • This runs very well on my Lumia 950 with Creator's Update. I'm also really glad that no internet connection is required for play, making it a properly mobile game. I think I'll be spending a lot of time just playing with the painting options.
  • I'm laughing, but I'm doing the same thing....
  • Please make sure to give this dev as much love as possible. The more support they see from windows phone users means more attention for us. Squeekiest wheel get's the oil after all.
