Warhammer Quest: Cursed City and other new board games from Games Workshop

March 2, 2021 - 9:29pm

Games Workshop have announced new board games to be released in 2021 which generally appear to be introductory games into the larger Warhammer universe ... except for Warhammer Quest: Cursed City.

Warhammer Bladeborn

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar - Bladeborn is a 2 player skirmish game, which can be played by those aged 12+ in around 30 minutes, where the Kagrah's Ravagers warband battles the Godsworn Hunt warband to earn a place in an army led by Archaven Everchosen (who has impressive credentials such as "Greatest of the Dark Gods’ champions", the "Exalted Grand Marshal of the Apocalypse", and "the doom of all").

Space Marine Adventures: Doomsday Countdown

Another Space Marine Adventures co-operative game is also being released which has 3 Space Marines defending against a hive of Chaos Cultists as they attempt to deactivate a cataclysmic weapon at the same time. Space Marine Adventures: Doomsday Countdown caters for 1-3 players, aged 12+, and can be played in 30 minutes.

Warhammer: Fireteam

Warhammer 40,000: Fireteam is a competitive arena, squad based skirmish game which pits the Space Marines against the Necrons of the Indomitus Crusade. It mostly closely matches the traditional Warhammer 40k competitive game but has rules which are much easier to learn. Expect games to last around 45 minutes for 2 players aged 12+.

Warhammer: Cursed City

Their biggest announcement was a new entry in the co-operative Warhammer Quest series which previously featured Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower, and Warhammer Quest: Black Fortress. In the latest iteration, Warhammer Quest: Cursed City, the series moves to the world of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and is set in the decaying city of Ulfenkarn. A band of heroes must rise up to topple an Undead tyrant who rules without opposition in a city filled with Vampires and the Undead.
