New NECROMUNDA: UNDERHIVE WARS Trailers Shine Light on Escher, Orlock & Goliath Factions

With Necromunda: Underhive Wars finally releasing next month, it shouldn't be surprising that publisher Focus Home Interactive is sharing new trailers for the upcoming turn-based strategy game left and right.

The latest batch of trailers for Necromunda: Underhive Wars should make fans of the evergreen Warhammer 40,000 world happy, as they focus on three in-game factions: House Goliath, House Escher & House Orlock.

In case you have no idea what Necromunda: Underhive Wars is all about, the ambitious strategy game will allow you to lead and grow your very own gang — and also fight for personal power and wealth, obviously.

Here's an official overview of each faction's unique abilities and original fighting styles in Underhive Wars:

House Goliath — "Hulking masters of the forge, whose sprawling industries churn out countless weapons, ammunition and other goods. Goliaths value physical size and strength above all else. House Goliath values nothing higher than physical strength. Its subjects are known to be incredibly strong and tough, but often mentally unbalanced and extremely short-lived, preferring a brute-force approach to solve the challenges and conflicts of hive life."

House Escher — "A Matriarchal house boasting generations of pharmaceutical expertise, Eschers produce and supply the hive's other Clan Houses with all manner of drugs and stimms. House Escher is unique among the great Houses, for its gangs are entirely made up of women. Masters of pharmaceuticals and chemical manipulation, they provide other houses with a range of exotic stimms, gene-enhancing elixirs and luxury drugs."

House Orlock — "Orlocks are expert miners, who extract and refine the resources of ages past. They control and fiercely defend the vast transport networks between Necromunda's hive cities. House Orlock is known throughout Necromunda as the 'House of Iron', an industrial superpower fuelled by countless ore mines and a stranglehold monopoly of the convoys serving the ferrous slag-heaps that lie out in the barren and dangerous Ash Wastes."

Considering that Necromunda: Underhive Wars — developed by Rogue Factor, the award-winning makers of 2015's RPG Mordheim: City of the Damned — will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (only via Steam) on September 8, we will definitely learn a whole lot more about the X-COM–like game in the coming weeks.

Without further ado, check out the aforementioned trailers for Necromunda: Underhive Wars down below:
