PIXEL HERO GAMES ANNOUNCES NEW WARHAMMER 40,000 ADVENTURE GAME FOR MOBILE
March 17th, 2014
Pixel Hero Games is excited to announce a new partnership with Games Workshop. Set to arrive in 2015 ‘Eisenhorn: XENOS’ is a 3D action and adventure game based on ‘Xenos’, the first book in the best-selling ‘Eisenhorn’ trilogy, written by award winning author Dan Abnett.
Set in the grim, dark future of Warhammer 40,000 ‘Eisenhorn: XENOS’ tells 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.
“We are tremendously excited to be working with Games Workshop on such a unique project” said Pixel Hero Games CEO Nader Alikhani. “Adapting the incredibly rich source material of ‘Xenos’ into a compelling adventure game, and allowing players to experience the inner workings of the Imperium of man through Eisenhorn’s fabled eyes is an opportunity I’m sure no fan will want to miss”
Pixel hero Games gained acclaim in 2013 for their mobile game ‘Spiral: Episode 1’, a 3D action/adventure game that was lauded for its combination of unique touch screen controls, presentation, and compelling narrative.
‘Pixel Heroes are a talented outfit, and matching their skill with the story and characters of this much loved and best-selling book will create a unique and characterful experience,’ said Games Workshops Head of Licensing, Jon Gillard. ‘They’ve captured the look and feel of the Xenos novel wonderfully, and this distinctive take will allow players to interact with the Warhammer 40,000 universe in ways not seen before.’
Eisenhorn: XENOS is due for release on mobile devices in 2015.

Great announcement, I will look forward to the start in 2015!
I’m about to read this trilogy, so I guess I’ll be ready for the game when it’s released. Good luck!
Really looking foward to this, as i am a huge fan of wk40 fluff and enjoy swatting up on lexicanum and wiki, even 1d4 if feeling humourous, cant wait for new updates.
Ehm, any news on this? I haven’t seen any update on this since over 5 months! If you have anything to share with us, do it now!
Hi Alexander! thanks for checking in! we will have updates coming out shortly! 🙂
Awesome! Can’t wait to see a Warhammer 40k 3D-RPG come to life!
Played the Beta level 1 and chatted to the team at the Warhammer store in London today. Looks and feels great. Cant wait for the full version!!
Great news, read the books a while back and have been looking forward to a RPG 40k theme to emerge. Can’t wait to start! I’m assuming you will following the trilogy?
After Dan Abnetts Books had been so great, a release under this name sounds very interesting.
Gregor Eisenhorn is the creation of one of the The Black Library’s finest authors, Dan Abnett, and is one of two W40K Inquisitors that he has written of (the other being Gideon Ravenor). Xenos is the first book of the Eisenhorn trilogy, and is a reference to the Ordos Xenos, although Eisenhorn is a member of the Ordos Hereticus. I am beyond exited that an action adventure game based on Eisenhorn is coming. Needless to say it is a Shutup And Take My Money purchase. Maybe Gaunt’s Ghost is next!
