Necromunda: Hired Gun is a shooter suffering from a mid-life crisis. A linear, singleplayer FPS releasing in 2021, it has looked in the mirror, seen its greying temples and crow’s feet, then panicked before rushing out to buy a bunch of hip new mechanics guaranteed to appeal to those cool Zoomer streamers: bolted-on side-quests, a trendy new loot system, a range of gory melee kills it doesn’t know how to pull off. It’s an FPS desperately afraid of its distinctly late ’90s identity. 

Which is a shame because Hired Gun would make for a pretty badass grandad if only it could stop embarrassing itself at the skate park.

You play a nameless bounty hunter who prowls the underhive of Necromunda, the largest Hive City of Warhammer 40k’s Imperium and one of its chief manufacturers of arms. Paid to avenge the murder of one of Necromunda’s most notable Guilders, you become embroiled in a gang war to control the Hive City’s murky underbelly.
