Today we get our first real look at Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground courtesy of a shiny new gameplay trailer from developer Gasket Games and publisher Focus Home Interactive. In the 4 minutes video we get to see the three factions, how battle plays out in this turn based title, and a very good look at the procedurally generated world that should have Warhammer fans coming back over and over. Let’s get into it.
Pick one of Storm Ground’s three factions – the stalwart Stormcast Eternals, ghoulish Nighthaunt, and putrescent Maggotkin – and lead your highly customizable forces in fast-paced, dynamic, turn-based strategic action. Fight your way across a wide variety of battlefields in the realms of Life, Death, and Metal. Every tile has tactical relevance, from valuable high ground to aethyr pools brimming with energy and ancient chests filled with secrets and rewards. Use the strengths of your army to gain the upper hand, fighting on advantageous terrain to grasp victory.
Each non-linear, procedurally generated, single-player campaign offers a new experience whenever you begin for endlessly replayable gameplay. Upgrade your army in campaign mode by collecting new heroes, units, wargear, skills, weapons and more. New units will allow you to build your army your way, choosing who to field with each new battle and customizing every facet of their equipment to match your playstyle. Meanwhile, multiplayer will have you gaining a collection and evolving your army steadily over time as you win battles against real players online.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on May 27th, and if you pre-order you’ll nab the “Spoils of War Weapon Pack”, granting an exclusive weapon for each of the three factions. We’ve got a handful of screenshots to go along with the video above to tide you over till then.
