While Steam is nonetheless discounting pre-orders proper up to the May 23 launch, this is nonetheless the most cost effective manner to add the Warhammer-flavored boomer-shooter to your library for those who’re prepared to undergo an additional step. This deal is unique to the Steam model of the game, however it’s price noting that Boltgun can even be out there on Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
