Get Ready to Conquer the Mortal Realms
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground is an upcoming action-packed, turn-based strategy game designed to bring all the dark fantasy warfare Warhammer fans can ask for, starting with three stunning Faction Spotlight trailers. Once it launches, players will choose between the armies of the stalwart Stormcast Eternals, the ghoulish Nighthaunt, and the putrescent Maggotkin. In the meantime, we invite you to spend some time thinking seriously about the specialties of each faction, how well their mechanics line up with your playstyle, and–of course–which of them is just too cool not to play. The Stormcast Eternals specialize in tight formations and long-range damage, and they also ride Star Drakes as their army evolves, just putting that out there.
The spectral Nighthaunt are no slouches either. On their quest to claim the land and souls of the living, this undead army has an incredibly strong sense of style and is more than willing to manipulate the battlefield around them to gain positional advantages. Though fragile, the Nighthaunt can use devastating debuffs to weaken their foes and summon units to overwhelm whoever is unlucky enough to be in their way. They can even create new spawn points, which sounds like a nightmare to plan against.
The third and final faction, the Maggotkin, forms a slow-moving tide of rot and pestilence, which will be especially scary to face during the pandemic. The swarm focuses on spreading its corruption through a variety of abilities, using its power to exact unrivaled control of the battlefield. Oh, and if they gather enough strength, the Maggotkin can summon a Great Daemon. You know, in case they weren’t terrifying enough already.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground will be available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on May 27th, 2021. It is currently available for preorder.
