I hope you like shoulders with more power than a 1980s lawyer business suit, blood, and skulls, because there’s a whole lot of Warhammer on the horizon! Games Workshop and its many developing/publishing partners slapped together a grand ol’ showcase for the franchise, which included everything from brand new game reveals through to updates on existing titles and a whole lot more. In case you missed it, we’ve rounded everything up below for you to check out.

Total War: Warhammer II – Silence & Fury announced

The final DLC for Total War: Warhammer 2, this slice of content will see a fresh take on Hordes, as the Beastmen race benefits from a total rework that was designed to more closely match their intended playstyle and address previous issues with horde gameplay. On top of that there’s the roving threat of Chaos as Oxyotl is heading all over the world to bring the fight to the enemy, and Sanctums that will allow Oxyotl to conduct his business behind a veil of secrecy.

  1. Looks like there might be some good things coming! Skarbrand is a win (though he normally gets shot down by turn 2) and GK are always awesome! Yes, I play with both sides of the coin, must be the Slaanesh in me 🙂

      I only know 40k Skarbrand (from Psychic Awakening) but considering many of the Deamon Lords are near identical in both settings I’m assuming he’s a badass.

    Yeeeeees.
    So much awesome! (Except you Primaris. No one likes you.)
    Dan Abnett? Hell yes.
    Relic just need to announce Dawn of War 3 and then I may explode from the psychic feedback.

      Wait, do you mean like Dawn of War 3 DLC or something. Last I remember DoW 3 was scrapped due to poor reception from the public.

      Personally I wouldn’t mind a DoW remaster, basically take the unification mod for DoW and polish the shit out of it with a new engine etc etc…

        No. There is DoW, DoW2. AND NOTHING AFTER THAT.
        I will take a flamer to anyone that says otherwise.

        In all seriousness though we need an update of the original formula with a fun campaign (Like Soulstorm or Dark Crusade) for modern day systems.
        I’m still playing DoW with the Ultimate Apocolypse mod. Have to give Unification a try.

        Also. Space Marine 2. But without Ultramarines.

    It truly astounds me that there have not been more movies or series based in this universe. With so much more to draw from, so many novels, this could be huge.

      Well they’re doing Eisenhorn at least. And lots of animated stuff in the pipeline.
      But yeah a live action Horus Heresy series? Yes please.

        I’ll be honest, I know next to nothing about Warhammer. 40K or otherwise.
        Yeah, I’ve read a couple of books, and I’ve read up a little, but I know that my level of knowledge on it is a mere speck in terms of the complete lore.
        Which, with all the possible stories they could draw from, would make any series or movie they do absolutely fresh to me.

          Which in and of itself is a good thing if they do it right. There is literally 10 000+ years of lore to pick from, or just make up new stuff.

          But I do recommend having some lore vids as background noise while doing menial tasks like dishes (or in my case painting minis).
