New free Chainsaw Warrior content and desktop wallpapers, in celebration of 'Skulls for the Skull Throne'

You’ll no doubt have noticed that there was a huge Steam sale going on across loads of Games Workshop titles on Steam over the weekend, including Chainsaw Warrior.

As part of the celebrations of this festival of Warhammer gaming, we want to say a huge thank you to the hundreds of thousands of players who have taken the time to experience our Chainsaw Warrior games.

As a small token of our appreciation to celebrate the success of the event, we’ve launched our new skull-themed content for the games: simply update your games to receive the following;

We’ve also created a couple of desktop wallpapers for everyone to enjoy, regardless of whether you own either of the Chainsaw Warrior games.

We hope you enjoy the new content. If you’re yet to complete your collection, you can purchase Chainsaw Warrior here and Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night here.

We've added a bunch of new achievements and equipment which we'd love you to try out!

We've added new betas for both Chainsaw Warrior and Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night, which contain some minor bug fixes, several new achievements and for Lords of the Night, a brand new item, the Executioner's Axe, which you can access using the following instructions;

Right clicking the game in Steam and click "Properties"
Go to the "Betas" tab
Enter the password 'PainsawWarrior1702' (without inverted commas)
For Chainsaw Warrior, you should unlock the fullbeta branch, and for Lords of the Night, it's the "privatebeta" branch from the dropdown.
The game should now start downloading. 

We'll be going live with the update officially in 2017, but in the meantime, try out these improvements, or go hunting for the new achievements. 

Let us know if you have any feedback or encounter any issues on gtn@aurochdigital.com and we'll get back to you ASAP! :)

..."But what do I need to do to win this sweet prize?", we hear you ask.

We want you to create a Haiku, inspired by Chainsaw Warrior!

What better way to convey the ludicrous world, exaggerated characters, and brutally visceral action of Chainsaw Warrior, than through the simple elegance found in the artistic expression of Haiku?

Perhaps these miniatures will help get you inspired?

There are no rules, except for the rules inherent in Haiku: it must consist of just 3 lines, the first and last of which have 5 syllables, with the middle line having 7 syllables.

Send over your best Haiku to us here at Auroch Digital by 18th July via jake@aurochdigital.com to stand a chance of winning! If you haven't yet, you can pick up both games for 50% off on all platforms! Check out the savings on Steam, iOS and Android now in the links below;
