Mobile Strategy Title Warhammer 40k Lost Crusade Has Finally Launched in the US

As part of this year's annual Warhammer Skulls celebration, a number of Warhammer titles have gone free-to-play. But for Warhammer fans in the US looking for something just a little bit different, it means that mobile title Warhammer 40k Lost Crusade finally has a US release date. As part of the event, the game has now officially launched in the United States after many months of availability in places like Europe, Australia, and Russia.

Is Warhammer 40k Lost Crusade Good?

Warhammer 40k Lost Crusade has, according to the news hit, seen "an extremely successful release" since it hit the Google Play and Apple App Stores in selected regions earlier this year.

Despite middling reviews from various publications, the base-building strategy game with a lick of Warhammer paint has been downloaded more than 1 million times on Android alone. With an average of 4.1 stars out of 5 across 30,000 user reviews on the platform, there must be something about the Warhammer 40K Lost Crusade game that has managed to keep the core audience happy.

Now, if you're within the United States, you have express permission from developer Nuverse to join Europe, Australia, and Russia in the officially licensed free-to-play mobile strategy game. In it, you take on the role of a Fleet Commander in the midst of a war against the enemies of the Imperium Nihilus. Tactics and skill play a large part in the grand strategy PvE combat it centers itself around.

Is Warhammer 40k Lost Crusade F2P?

Warhammer Skulls event or not, the game isn't entirely free-to-play. Like any mobile title, it's a free-to-start deal that will eventually politely ask that you toss it some coin for one reason or another.

Regardless of how much or how little you spend, though, the annual Warhammer celebration means plenty of in-game events will be running to keep you and your fellow Commanders entertained. For existing or lapsed players, a recent major update has apparently made the hero system "more attractive."
