The series of Warhammer games rolls on, but this time with a virtual reality twist, as Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall hits headsets in 2021.
Enter the necropolis
When you talk about Games Workshop’s Warhammer, you’re talking about a fantasy universe that’s loaded with pretty much whatever genre-convention you can imagine. Previous games set in the Olde World have featured Orks aplenty, as well as the forces of Chaos and even Elfish armies. The newest though, goes in a decidedly more undead direction.
Just announced at the tail-end of last week, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall comes out of Carbon Studios, makers of the Oculus title The Wizards. And as you can see from this first tease, it’s looking pretty great already.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall is set in the Age of Sigmar universe and begins following the Necroquake. From the domain of Nagash and across all the Realms, Nighthaunt forces are rising. A specially assembled retinue of Stormcast Eternals embarks on a quest to investigate a new threat to the Mortal Realms.
Side by side with these elite soldiers, you must explore the dread-filled realm of Shyish and battle your way through the Nighthaunt in a quest to protect the Forces of Order from a sinister plot.
Coupling immersive melee combat with powerful, motion-based spellcasting, your pursuit will take you through seven-plus hours of action-packed gameplay in a world full of Warhammer lore, lurking secrets, and hidden dangers.Tempestfall press release
While there’s no official platforms announced just yet for the above, that will be forthcoming. The press release says that much more in general will be coming up “soon”.
So stay tuned.
