Get the latest word on the street regarding the release of Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire, future expansions, and how much it’s going to cost you.
From the looks of the dates and timing this set will break up the release waves of what many expect to be a multi-week Death Guard launch that started on Sept 16th. We’re getting a look at the price of the new box set from, what appears to be the Alliance catalog courtesy of a Xavi over on Miniwars.
The latest teaser from Games Workshop is gave us a look at some of what we already knew, and some of what we didn’t.
Breaking news from Shadespire today.
Literally. We have a great new piece of art to show you, depicting some of the warring factions within the city reflected in a fractured mirror, including a few new surprises…
The city of Shadespire draws treasure hunters from near and far in search of Shadeglass, while many more simply find themselves trapped in its haunted labyrinths by pure misfortune.
As well as the Stormcast Eternals, who hunt Shadeglass as a means to surviving their Reforging with their memories and personality intact, and the Khorne Bloodbound who are, understandably, overjoyed by a city where they can shed blood for eternity, Shadespire is fought over by many types of warbands. Two of these we’ve seen already in the form of the brutal Orruks and the undying Deathrattle of the Sepulchral Guard.
While the four grand alliances are already represented, that certainly isn’t everyone; here’s a sneak peek through the Shadeglass at who else we might expect to meet in the eternal arenas of the Shadespire.
Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire will be released next month.
We’re seeing a lot of different factions in the broken glass of this window. Khorne, Death, Stormcast, Skaven, Orruks, and Fyreslayers can all be seen ready for battle.
Who do you think that is in the bottom left pane?
Games Workshop also gave some lucky people the chance to demo the new game at GenCon, but they also gave us a breakdown on their site recently as well:
If you want to try Shadespire for yourself, you won’t have to wait long – the Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire core box will be available to order next month, with the first of the warband expansions on shelves in November. In the meantime, we’ll be keeping you up to date with the latest news, insights and more right here on Warhammer Community.
Atia’s birds had this to say about the upcoming release, which seems mirror the statements GW made above:
Some additional Shadespire infos regarding dates:
Pre-order of the core box should be late September, release is October. The first expansion, the Deathrattle Sepulchral Guard, is due to be released in November 2017. A series of expansions is already ready to be released in 2018.
Tactics and strategy seem like they’re going to play a bigger part rather than luck of the dice in the new Shadespire game. We have a pre-order window of next month some time with the first expansions coming out in November. We’re looking forward to learning more from Games Workshop about the new arena-combat game. Make sure you check back in with us, we’ll be putting out the updates as soon as we get them.
