Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade lands as iOS exclusive, takes 3D Touch gaming to the next level
The 3D Touch pressure-sensitive screen technology on the Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus has some real merits not only when it comes to popping context menus up on the homescreen, but in numerous other undertakings, including gaming. We already rounded up some of the more ingenious ways that developers are using 3D Touch on the new iPhones, and one of the examples there was the game Badlands.

Well, that's not the only game in town that employs 3D Touch, and the newest Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade edition that just landed on iOS, deserves an honorable mention here. In fact, this was one of the titles that Apple introduced 3D Touch with when announcing the new iPhones back in September, and it is now gotten official. 

You can use a moderate press to zoom in and out, or press harder to switch to a heavier weapon, for instance, but that's not the only thing cool about the newest Warhammer. Featuring jaw-dropping 3D graphics, this shooter employs you as a 50-foot Imperial Knight mech called Freeblade (duh) that wreaks havoc among a smorgasbord of galactic enemies in the name of the Emperor. 

Pressing harder on the screen to equip yourself with a more lethal force comes naturally, and one quickly appreciates decluttering of the screen from weapon icons that usually obscure the view in the middle of a heated battle until you switch to a new weapon. Take Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade for a spin from the source link below if you are interested to test a stunning game with incorporated 3D Touch controls - it's free to play, with various in-app upgrade purchases tossed in, as usual.
