Games Workshop today has sent out a correction to its last newsletter for Digital products. What happened it looks like, is that the newsletter listed out functions for the psychic powers app that are not yet available.
So what this does, is gives us some cool insight though to what is just around the horizon for new functions of the app. It sounds cool, and caught my eye the first time I read it, and was a little sad that it was not part of the app right now. Luckily for me, I dont have a phone or ipad that can run it yet, so hopefully I will be upgrading my phone soon, to be able to take advantage of some of these cool new features.
Here is the correction that came today.
via Games Workshop Newsletter
In our recent newsletter about our digital products we made a mistake regarding an update to the Warhammer 40,000 Psychic Powers app.
We said that the new version of the app contained the ability to purchase the new psychic disciplines of Change, Excess and Plague, and all the Psykers from Codex: Chaos Daemons. We also said that there would be an option to connect to your opponent's copy of the app via Bluetooth and track both players' Psykers, giving you instant access to the powers they have available.
These options are not yet available.
We're really sorry if you wanted to download the app to take advantage of them. We'll let you know when the app has been updated and those options become available. However, Warhammer 40,000: Psychic Powers still contains plenty of fantastic features.
For those of you who have not yet experienced it, the app brings the psychic devastation of the 41st Millennium to your iPhone® or iPod touch®. You'll be able to browse through all the psychic disciplines and powers from the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook, and keep track of psychic powers during your Warhammer 40,000 battles.
You can also photograph and name your Psykers, generate powers for each Psyker before the game, and even listen to the sounds of arcing bio-lightning and the screams of the dying as you manifest psychic powers. It's an easy-to-use reference for every psychic power from the rulebook. You can also:
- Search or browse the psychic powers by discipline
- Tap on special rules and keywords for a detailed explanation
- Catalogue your Psykers
- Choose from every unit entry with access to the new psychic disciplines
- Photograph, configure and name your Psykers
- Keep track of your Psykers during games:
- View an at-a-glance summary of each Psyker's powers, Warp Charge and Mastery Level
- Record units under the effect of powers with the camera
- Updated Chaos Space Marine Psykers
- Updated Dark Angel Psykers
- Access to Chaos Space Marine Nurgle, Slannesh and Tzeentch disciplines through in app purchase
Don't forget, you'll still need a copy of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook and the codex for your army in order to use this app.
The App has been built for iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5 and iPod touch running iOS 5.1 or later. Please note that the full text of powers will only be accessible if you have bought the relevant in-app purchases.
