You can pet the dog in the new trailer for 40K shooter Necromunda: Hired Gun

Plus new details on character creation, weapons, and more

A new trailer is out for single-player Warhammer 40K shooter Necromunda: Hired Gun proving that yes, you can pet the dog. Or, rather, you can pet the cybermastiff whose ceramite teeth will be used by your good, good boy to rip out the throats of your enemies.

Set in the seedy underbelly of one of the Imperium of Mankind’s massive manufacturing worlds, Necromunda: Hired Gun is a single-player first-person shooter set in the grim darkness of the far future. Wednesday’s trailer enumerates the many different factions that players will interact with in the game, including the enforcers (Judge Dredd-style hive police), mutants, gang members, and the mysterious and powerful Imperial Inquisition.

The trailer also reveals that players will be able to design their own character in the game, and modify them over time with 12 types of bionic implants. There’s also an “endless” weapon upgrade system. According to the game’s website, the weapon system will allow players to trick out “bolters, autoguns, long-las rifles, plasma guns, power knives, grenade launchers, and much more.”
