Frontier Developments has revealed Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin, a real-time strategy game that's going to be released soon on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
Taking place in the fantasy realm of Age of Sigmar, players will take control of four playable factions in dynamic real-time battles.
Realms of Ruin will feature a narrative-driven single-player campaign and the choice to compete against other players in both 1v1 and 2v2 cross-platform online multiplayer modes.
Realms of Ruin features cross-platform multiplayer modes
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin unfolds in Ghur, the brutal Realm of Beasts, a harsh and volatile land where survival is a privilege of the fittest.
In the single-player campaign, the Order deploys their divine, reforged champions - the Stormcast Eternals - to regain control of this domain.
Realms of Ruin boasts a narrative co-authored by Black Library writer Gavin Thorpe, drawing inspiration from the Dawnbringer Crusades of the tabletop game's latest edition.
Players will engage in fierce competition over Arcane Conduits to gather resources for their war machine, enhance their forces through specialised tech trees, and assert control over several fronts to secure victory.
Developed simultaneously for both console and PC, Frontier says that players using a controller will be aided by a feature called DirectStep, which it describes as 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, all from a control input they’re comfortable with."
The debut gameplay trailer for Realms of Ruin is set to launch in June, and players will have the opportunity to test the game during open multiplayer betas, scheduled for release on all platforms later this year.
