Published on: Mon, 11/12/2023 - 11:00am
Unleash the might of Yndrasta and the destructive power of Gobsprakk on the realm of Ghur in new DLC for Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin, available now.
Players who have purchased the Ultimate Edition will receive both DLC heroes to lead their Stormcast Eternals and Orruk Kruleboyz armies.
Today, Frontier Developments (‘Frontier’) invite players of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin to add powerful new heroes to their arsenal with the launch of two Hero DLC. The all-powerful Stormcast Eternals champion Yndrasta, The Celestial Spear and the cunning Orruk Kruleboyz shaman Gobsprakk, The Mouth of Mork, are available from today for PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Each Hero DLC will also be available separately for £3.99/$4.99/€4.99, as well as part of a bundle for £6.99/$8.99/€8.99.
Both pieces of DLC introduce a new playable Age of Sigmar hero, who can be rotated into the army loadout in place of either the Stormcast Eternals Lord-Celestant, or the Orruk Kruleboyz Killaboss on Gnashtoof. These heroes can be used in Skirmish, Multiplayer and Conquest Mode, introducing new strategic options for both factions as they vie for control of the Realm of Beasts.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin – Yndrasta, The Celestial Spear. Yndrasta’s passive ability ‘Dazzling Radiance’ provides immediate healing and a movement speed bonus to nearby allies after using an ability, whilst ‘Huntress Charge’ propels her to the skies before slamming into foes, dealing damage and stunning any who are caught in the fray. Her legendary spear, Thengavar, can be thrown to a location – dealing immediate damage as well as summoning Sigmar’s fury to increase the melee speed of allies in the area.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin – Gobsprakk, The Mouth of Mork introduces the Orruk Kruleboyz first flying unit, Gobsprakk, capable of unleashing terror from atop his Corpse-Rippa Vulcha, Killabeak. His passive ability ‘Mouth of Mork’ provides allies with improved movement and melee speed, reduced cooldowns as long as Gobsprakk isn’t in combat. Meanwhile the ‘Rippa Screech’ active ability unleashes the power of his mount, aiming a cone of damage at foes and an AoE effect beneath him, revealing, silencing and damaging enemies over time.
These powerful new heroes can also be posed in dioramas built in Realms of Ruin's extensive Map Editor, where players can sculpt their own shareable gameplay maps and create scenes showing the full ferocity of battle.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin is available digitally for PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Alongside the Ultimate Edition, players can purchase the Standard Edition for a suggested retail price of £49.99/$59.99/€59.99 and the Deluxe Edition for £59.99/$69.99/€69.99. The physical edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin, meanwhile, will release on 27th February 2024 for PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S only, and will include both Hero DLCs.
Both Hero DLCs are bundled with the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin – Ultimate Edition, which has a suggested retail price of £64.99/$74.99/€74.99. Each Hero DLC will also be available separately for £3.99/$4.99/€4.99, as well as part of a bundle for £6.99/$8.99/€8.99, and will require a copy of the base game to play.
