Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion is a turn based strategy game, set on the edge of Imperial space, where your Space Marines will engage the Tyranids in a series of tactical engagements. From war ravaged cities, to the insides of Tyranid bio-ships, your mission will see your Kill Team rise in strength and skill as you face ever greater threats and peril.

Clad in black armour, the Deathwatch is an elite, secret order of Space Marines. Drawn from the greatest heroes of several Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes, they are dedicated to combating the ever present alien menace that threatens the Imperium. In the game you will be able to customise your Kill Team with over 200 different weapons and wargear relics, take on the campaign mode, or for the first time, in a Rodeo title, you will be able to test your ability against your friends in the multiplayer mode.

“When we were discussing which project to work on next, the Deathwatch stood out as the part of the Warhammer 40,000 universe we were most excited about. Only in the Deathwatch can you bring together the greatest Space Marines from multiple Chapters, and form the ultimate fighting force. Tyranid Invasion gives players their first opportunity to command this legendary force.” said Laurent Maguire, Studio Head at Rodeo Games. “Expectations are high for our next title, this represents a big step forward for the studio. Our first Deathwatch game is bigger in every way than our previous titles and we’re hoping that the high production quality combined with the new Unreal 4 engine will establish a new quality bar on the platform.”

Players will be able to purchase Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion this summer from the App Store. More details will be released over the coming months. To keep up to date, visit the website at
