‘Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions Onslaught’ to unleash new expansion on 30 November

The first expansion of the massive collectable card game Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Champions Onslaught is ready to be unleashed in stores and on digital platforms on 30 November. With the initial release seeing 10,000,000 physical cards sold in 10 days and over 200,000 digital games played; the banners for war have been raised worldwide. Now PlayFusion and Games Workshop are combining to bring the next set of 128 cards to players, so the battle can be waged in new and bloodier ways. In the game, 128 new cards mean that each Grand Alliance will be bolstered with new champions, blessings, units, spells, abilities and now Realm Magic. With the addition of this new set of cards, bold strategies will emerge and existing tactics will evolve. Battles in the world of Warhammer Champions take place across Mortal Realms. In the game, the realms that are featured are Aqshy, the Realm of Fire and Ghyran and the Realm of Life. The Realm Card is a new type of card with categories like Spells and Blessings to crush foes. Realm Spells and Blessings work in much the same way as normal Spells and Blessings though they can be used by any of the four Grand Alliances. Once a player has chosen a realm, they are locked to it and cannot use spells or blessings from any other Realm. The backdrop of the game reveals that Hammerhal, the Twin-Tailed city has long stood between the realms of fire and life; a beacon of the God-King Sigmar’s righteous glory. However, in the wake of the Shyish Necroquake dark magic permeates the realms and Hammerhal sits on the brink of war. The four grand alliances are ready to unleash their chosen champions and their tools of war onto the battlefield. Without warning, Lady Olynder, Mortarch of Grief, calls forth a legion of the damned ready to strike at the very heart of the city; while on opposing flanks the zealots of Chaos and brutal Beastclaw Raiders each pledge to seize control of the city for their dark masters. However all is not yet lost, Aventis Firestrike, Magister of Hammerhal has rallied his Stormcast warriors and called for assistance from the battle-hardened warriors of the Idoneth Deepkin, to push back against these overwhelming odds. With the new expansion gamers are harnessing the powers of the realms, form new tactics to tackle new challenges in Onslaught.
