Warhammer has launched its Skulls Festival, devoted to all things under its banner. To kick things off, a boatload of new information regarding upcoming Warhammer games and DLC content for existing ones was released.
Total War: Warhammer II will be releasing its final DLC pack, The Silence and the Fury, in July. After this the long-awaited Total War III will finally be in sight. It’s targeted for a late 2021 release and preorders are open now on Steam and the Epic Games Store. We got a new trailer this morning, showing off the world of Khorne:
Kislev is set to face off against the four Chaos Gods as the Old World descends further towards calamity. We know that Katarina, the Ice Queen, will be commanding the faithful of Ursun in battle, but who else is putting their general’s cap on? That’s right, Skarbrand is here to harvest a frankly ludicrous number of skulls for his master, Khorne. As one of his god’s most powerful daemons, and a living embodiment of bloodlust and carnage, Skarbrand commands the daemonic host of Khorne with absolute authority and sends his armies on vicious raids into the Warhammer world.
Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall, a Warhammer VR game, is now in development. A closed beta test is being conducted right now — you can sign up through the game’s Discord channel. The full game will be released later this summer on Steam VR and Oculus Quest. Writer Dan Abnett has joined the scripting team for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, and Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is getting more DLC content in the form of Sister of the Thorn, a new chapter focused on the character of Kerillian.
During the Skulls Festival, gamers can play three Warhammer games for free on XBox this weekend, three others on Windows 10, and receive a free goodie bag of of stuff on GOG (including Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat, Black Library fiction, the Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus soundtrack, an adventure for the Wrath & Glory RPG, discounts for Warhammer merchandise, and other material).
The Warhammer Skulls Festival will last from June 3 to June 10.
