Behold the fell powers of Tzeentch in the upcoming Warhammer RTS, Realms of Ruin

Chaos magic in its rawest form cascades across the battlefield next month, in Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin.

Demons… demons everywhere

Perfectly suited for a little Halloween viewing is the newest trailer for Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin. That, of course, is because it’s hosting the armies of the Chaos god known as Tzeentch, and it’s foul armies. But as you’ll see in this new look at the game in action, there’s much more to be revealed than just the villainous Lord of Change.

The Disciples of Tzeentch are eldritch warriors and masters of the mystical arts, using magic and cunning to bend the Mortal Realms to their own ends. In Realms of Ruin, this faction is fully playable in Conquest Mode and multiplayer, while playing a small but vital role in the singleplayer campaign. Their distinctive strengths lie in powerful ranged units and the ability to induce status effects in their enemies. While unlocking the full power of the Disciples of Tzeentch on the battlefield isn’t cheap, it’s worth it for their late game prowess and deadly magic attacks – not to mention the extraordinary spectacle they bring to each skirmish in Realms of Ruin.

Frontier Developments press release

So, not only do we have that first-look at Tzeentch to show off, but how about that map creator? Maybe one of the most in-depth and complex to yet see the light of day in the genre, Realms of Ruin not only lets players build their own maps and share them with others, but also set up actual battlefields.

Essentially it sounds like you can make your own virtual tabletop displays. And those can be complete with either “official” colorways, or custom deco for all the ‘miniatures’. Pretty wicked.

Let’s cross our collective fingers that Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin shakes out to be as good as it’s looking. The strategy title is set to arrive on November 17th, for the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
