There’s lots of Warhammer stuff to do in this year’s Skulls for the Skull Throne occasion
This year is the fourth Skulls for the Skull Throne occasion on Steam, and as ever it’s a time to celebrate – and purchase – all things Warhammer. What’s intriguing about Skulls for the Skull Throne 4, however, is the sheer amount of in-game stuff to do: there’s a bristling list of video games participating this year, and some of them aren’t even related to Warhammer.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive may be among the least Warhammery game on Steam, but there’s Khorne-based action to be found there. You can collect 17 Warhammer 40K-themed weapon sticker labels in Counter-Strike during the occasion to use as you please.
World of Warships has a slightly more common thread with 40K, what with all the capital ship combat and all, and through June you’ll be able to buy Imperial and Mayhem ship skins, commanders, spots, and flags for your fleets. If you purchase the Skulls plan this weekend, you can take on a special mission when the main event starts up, and finishing that objective will make you containers filled with Warhammer 40K gubbins for your warships.
That’s simply the start, nevertheless. The real meat of the occasion is taking location in the formally licensed Warhammer video games themselves. Possibilities are, if it’s a Warhammer video game on Steam, there’s something going on this month to motivate you to play it, purchase it, or both.
For circumstances, Overall War: Warhammer II is offering a new Black Orc Big Employer complimentary for anybody who begins up a Greenskins campaign. The base video game is also discounted 66% off its typical cost, putting it at $20.39 USD/ ₤ 13.59.
You can’t play Necromunda: Underhive Wars yet – it’s not out until at some point this summer season. However, you can pre-order it at a special discount rate throughout Skulls for the Skull Throne, which has it 20% off the market price. That’s $31.99/ ₤ 27.99.
The list goes on and on – seriously, there’s something for just about every Warhammer title that’s come out in the past 5 years at least, with brand-new skins and discounts on Space Hulk: Deathwing and Space Hulk: Strategies, a painting collection event in Vermintide 2, a Crown of Command and Blunderbuss Grenade Launcher for Male ‘O War: Corsair, and brand-new skins for Dark Future: Blood Red States.
That’s just a taste of what’s going on throughout Skulls for the Skull Throne this year – have a look at this post at Warhammer Community for the complete rundown.
