Video game adaptations of Games Workshop’s myriad tabletop games are everywhere right now, with three more on tap for later this year and beyond. Let’s take a quick look at how they’re coming along!

There’s Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, a PC real-time space fleet strategy game from Focus Home Interactive and Tindalos Interactive. Those Unreal Engine 4 graphics sure look gorgeous.

Also in Focus Home’s lineup, Space Hulk: Deathwing, by E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy developer Streum On Studio and Cyanide Studio, is an Unreal Engine 4 powered FPS coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2016. It’ll offer a single-player campaign, class-based cooperative team play, and a story penned by Black Library author Gav Thorpe.

Last but not least, is Fatshark’s Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, a 4-player (or solo with teammate bots) cooperative first-person shooter and melee combat game set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe. It’s coming out for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in Q3 2015. Opposed to the other two titles built on Unreal Engine 4, this one’s running on the Autodesk Gameware “Stingray” engine, and it’s looking just as visually sharp.
