Necromunda: Underhive Wars is all about gangs clashing in the dystopian and distant future of the Warhammer universe and now we have an additional glimpse into the stages where these conflicts will happen.

Focus Home Interactive and Rogue Factor released a trailer and several screenshots of the locations n Necromunda: Underhive Wars. These will serve as stages in the story mode and multiplayer battles as players take their gangs to various decrepit arenas to duke it out with the rivals.

For those not that familiar with 40K terminology, a hive city is a massive urban zone that often looks like an anthill and is populated to the brim. These are some of the traits these cities share with the hive planets which are basically the same thing on a bigger scale. Both the planets and cities are often infested with crime, which is where the idea of Necromunda: Underhive Wars came from.

The name itself, Necromunda, refers to one of the most popular hive worlds in Warhammer 40K universe and it is the place where Escher, Goliath and Orlock gangs will battle for control, come September 8, 2020.

Those familiar with the 40K universe already know of its bleak features with a heavy emphasis on sluggish mechanical creations of war and sturdy cities that produce either the machines themselves or weaponry necessary for the Imperium's war efforts against various alien races as well as the corrupted humans.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars' action will not be happening out in the open, just like the name suggests. Therefore, the sewer-like areas that you see in the trailer will most likely take up the lion's share of the environment appearances in the game. 

That is not to say the players won't have enough diversity to sate the gaming thirst since there is a lot of focus on verticality. Considering the colossal size of these hive cities, there is definitely a lot to be seen, although it may not be pleasing on the eye.
