'Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall' set for 2021 Release
Warhammer fans were already anxiously awaiting VR exclusive Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister later this year, but now they'll have another date to peg in their diaries.
Warhammer fans were already waiting in anticipation for the arrival of Pixel Toys' Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister later this year. The futuristic Quest-exclusive FPS was announced at Facebook Connect in September, with a release date set for November 12th.
They will be even more excited to hear that even though the year is almost out, the announcements aren't finished just yet.
The debut trailer for adventure RPG Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall was revealed earlier this week, surprising fans of the series. The game is being developed by Carbon Studio, the team behind The Wizards and Alive VR.
Carbon Studio have described the game in contrast to Battle Sister:
Descend in thunderous Tempestfall and deliver justice in the name of Sigmar. Walk the realm of death and lead your brethren to utter victory in this VR-exclusive Warhammer Age of Sigmar game. Wield melee weapons and powerful staves, use motion-based abilities to combat hordes of Nighthaunt.
Whereas FPS Battle Sister takes place in the Sci-Fi Warhammer 40k Universe, Age of Sigmar has a lot more in common with the original Warhammer board game - a medieval fantasy, melee-and-magic adventure RPG.
In other words, you'll be putting your lazers aside in favour of mystical, motion-based abilities:
Become a mighty Lord-Arcanum, wielder of storm magic, and lead a Stormcast Eternal task force to recover your brethren’s lost souls. Walk the lands of Shyish and battle forces of Nighthaunt using a variety of melee weapons, powerful staves, and motion-based abilities and magic.
Carbon Studio have also revealed that the game will include a full story campaign, set in the the realm of Shyish following the Necroquake.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall will be a VR exclusive, set to launch on PC VR and Oculus Quest sometime in 2021. More information can be found on the game's official website.
But if you're more of a Sci-Fi fanatic, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge may just have what you're looking for.
