Today during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live show, Focus Home Entertainment revealed Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground will release in 2021 fir PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Basically, it’s coming for everything with a chip that isn’t next-generation, which is fairly peculiar for a 2021 game.
Incidentally, it’s going to be a strategy game developed by Gasket Games.
You can enjoy the trailer revealed during the show below alongside a few images.
Here’s an official description.
“Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground – strategy in a dark fantasy universe of dragons, death, and daemons!

If you’re unfamiliar with Warhammer: Age o Sigmar, it’s the newest incarnation of the Warhammer franchise launched by Games Workshop in 2015 after basically destroying the fan-favorite Old World of the popular tabletop miniature wargame and throwing decades of lore and progression into the recycle bin.
If you’re interested in the old Warhammer setting instead (which incidentally is the only good one, at least for fantasy), there’s still the Total War: Warhammer franchise by Creative Assembly holding the torch ablaze until Games Workshop comes to its senses.
