Pixel Hero Games has announced that its Warhammer 40,000 adaptation of Dan Abnett’s ‘Xenos book - Eisenhorn: XENOS - will be released for PC viaon 19th May, 2016.
Eisenhorn: XENOS is an action adventure that follows the journey of Gregor Eisenhorn (voiced by British actor Mark Strong), an inquisitor of the Ordo Xenos – Alien hunters of the Imperium - on his quest to hunt down an ancient tome of evil origin. Following from the book's storyline and set in a dystopian, fantasy universe, players must use stealth, psychic powers and a vast array of weapons to fight their way through an 11-hour single player campaign.
"We are tremendously excited to be working with Games Workshop on such a unique project," said Pixel Hero Games Studio Head 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."

We haven't had a chance to check out Dan Abnett’s series of Eisenhorn books, but this video game adaptation certainly looks interesting, even if it's only a single-player experience. I'm a little worried about the combat though, judging by the. One to keep an eye on next month?
