It looks like Warhammer 40,000 is going to be reaching into a totally different play style, role playing that is. Come find out the latest adventure in the making.
Games Workshop just announced they are currently working with a company to develop a new Warhammer 40,000 role playing game. Let’s see what they had to say about Wrath & Glory.
A new Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying game is coming – soon, you’ll be able to dive into the 41st Millennium in Wrath & Glory. Tabletop roleplaying is a very different experience from wargaming – rather than commanding your forces from above, you’ll be able to inhabit characters of your own design in imaginative collaborative storytelling.
Wrath & Glory is currently in development at Ulisses North America, an experienced designer and publisher of several popular roleplaying games. We can’t reveal anything more at this point, but watch this space for updates and news, and get ready for your own adventures in the 41st Millennium.
Ulisses North America was also happy to make the announcement of the new RPG. But who exactly is Ulisses North America?
Ulisses Spiele North America is the English-language division of Ulisses Spiele, Germany’s premiere RPG translator and publisher of Das Schwarze Auge, the classic German fantasy RPG.
They shared a little bit more than Games Workshop about the new role playing game in the making.
The time has come once again to step into the grim darkness of the 41st millennium!
Roleplaying game company Ulisses North America have acquired the Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay licence and would like to announce their first product line, Wrath & Glory.
Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Wrath & Glory is a roleplaying game set in the universe of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000. The setting is a dark, Gothic future where the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man is beset by horrific threats and endless war. In Wrath & Glory, players join to tell stories of mystery, action, and terror amongst the bloodstained stars. You may take on the roles of characters fighting against the tide of corruption sweeping the galaxy, struggling to keep alive a glimmer of hope as others revel in the consuming flames.
Wrath & Glory launches in 2018 with the Wrath & Glory Core Rulebook. Inside are rules for character creation, task resolution, combat, and other activities your character may employ as they explore the grim darkness of the far future. In Wrath & Glory, your characters glimpse the grime on the cherub’s wings, the hint of regret in the Radical’s eyes, and confront their own worst fears in the Harlequin’s mask.
Ulisses North America will hold a seminar at Gen Con 2017, where Ross Watson will discuss further details about the game and the products that are in development. If you can’t make it to Indianapolis, there will be video of the seminar available afterwards.
In anticipation of this release, Ulisses North America have launched a teaser website that includes a few Frequently Asked Questions, as well as a link to the Gen Con seminar. You can also read the official press release here.
So it looks like Ulisses North America is planning on the game coming out some time next year, and they’ll also be holding a seminar at Gen Con which is less than a week away. All in all it looks like this is going to be a really fun way for Warhammer fans everywhere to dive deeper into the lore, create a character, and dive into one epic journey. We can’t wait to find out more.
