Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin, a major real-time strategy game is coming soon. This latest title will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.

Set in the expansive fantasy universe of Age of Sigmar, players will command four unique factions in dynamic real-time battles. Players will experience a story-driven single-player campaign. Also, players will compete against warlords afar in 1v1 and 2v2 cross-platform online multiplayer modes.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin: You’re not ready for this

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin is set in Ghur. This is the savage Realm of Beasts, an inhospitable, violent land where only the strongest survive. In the single-player campaign, the forces of Order dispatch the celestial, reforged champions. These are known as the Stormcast Eternals to reclaim this realm.

After establishing a precarious foothold in this dangerous place, their fortress settlement is under serious threat from the Kruleboyz. This is the sinister and violent Orruk faction that calls Ghur their home. When this Stormcast detachment’s leader, Sigrun, learns about a source of arcane power that can protect against the Kruleboyz, they venture into the swamplands at great risk to obtain it. This begins the campaign’s twisted cinematic tale of desperate survival. Co-written with Black Library author Gavin Thorpe, this rich Age of Sigmar narrative is based on the Dawnbringer Crusades from the tabletop game’s most recent edition.

Building a bigger, bolder battle

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin has been developed simultaneously for both console and PC. Players using a controller will experience DirectStep. This is an innovative new real-time strategy interface enabling tactical immediacy in the heat of battle. Using the analogue sticks and a few simple button presses, players can quickly cycle through their squads, issue orders and engage the enemy. This system gives Xbox and PlayStation users the flexibility and responsiveness of mouse and keyboard controls. In addition, PC players will be able to enjoy a classic mouse and keyboard control scheme that’s designed to feel familiar to RTS veterans.

With a diverse range of mission types and modes, no two battles are ever the same in Realms of Ruin. Featuring four playable factions that are completely distinct from one another visually and strategically, players will rally these armies. And they will unleash powerful units to turn the tides of war in their favour. From fast-moving flyers to lumbering monsters, mystical wizards and powerful heroes, each has their own strengths and weaknesses. Players will clash over Arcane Conduits to harvest resources, upgrade and specialise their forces via tech trees. Not only that they will control the battle across multiple fronts as they seize victory.
