Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground coming 2021, revealed at Gamescom Opening Night Live

It looks like Warhammer fans are getting a brand-new game set in the Age of Sigmar with Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground, and it's coming in 2021.


Warhammer has seen a lot of love in video games throughout recent years and now fans of the iconic tabletop have even more to look forward to as Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground was revealed during today’s Gamescom Opening Night Live stream. It’s currently set to arrive sometime in 2021.

The latest Warhammer title is coming to us courtesy of the fine folks at Gasket Games and Focus Home. Unlike previous games in the franchise, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground will focus on the Stormcast Eternals as the hero faction as they face off against Nagash’s undead Nighthaunt on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

There really isn’t much known about the upcoming game just yet – except that it appears we’ll get to ride around on Stardrakes. It does look like the developers working on it have a good bit of experience in the Warhammer universe, though, as Gasket Games is made up of developers from Relic Games, who are most widely known for their work on the Warhammer 40K Dawn of War games, which have become a big part of the Warhammer video game legacy. It also looks like the studio has people from Blackbird Interactive, the studio that brought Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak to life.

All we can do right now is wait and see what comes out of the rest of Gamescom 2020. It’s possible we might see more about Storm Ground, though we wouldn’t suggest holding our breath as the game isn’t even slated to arrive until next year some time.

We’ll continue to keep a close eye on Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground as the months go by, so make sure you keep your eyes glued to our news topic right here on Shacknews. You can also check out some of the other announcements from tonight’s Gamescom Opening Night Live event, like the release date reveal for Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part One, which is set to arrive later this year.
