Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin - Kurdoss Valentian, The Craven King & Gaunt Summoner

Published on: Wed, 28/02/2024 - 6:00pm

In today’s Frontier Unlocked livestream (28th February), the Cambridge-based studio revealed two new Hero DLCs coming to Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin on March 20, alongside a free update for all players which includes new multiplayer, skirmish and conquest maps, further balancing and quality of life enhancements including the highly requested squad stances.

Kurdoss Valentian, The Craven King, exerts his dire presence over the battlefields of Ghur to silence enemy squads and disrupt the command of foes. The ominous sight of The Craven King’s silently drifting throne in the ranks of the Nighthaunt signifies doom, as this heavy-hitting brawler wields the Sepulchral Sceptre to unleash death upon the enemy.

Meanwhile the Gaunt Summoner allows players to embrace the twisted trickery of Tzeentch, raining devastation from afar and tearing through reality itself to unleash the fury of summoned daemons. Wielding powerful spells and arcane abilities, reshaping the battlefield to their whims and turning the tide of the conflict in their favour. 

Both playable heroes can be used in AI Skirmish, Multiplayer and the single player Conquest Mode, bringing all-new abilities to the field. Players can swap out their default hero units for one of these special characters, allowing them to tweak their overall strategic approach to the game.

Each Hero DLC will be available separately for a suggested retail price of £3.99/$4.99/€4.99, or together as part of a bundle for £6.99/$8.99/€8.99. This brand-new content will require the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin base game to download and play.

In addition, all players can enjoy a free update offering new maps, further balancing and quality of life enhancements, including greater autonomy to their battlefield management through the introduction of two new squad stances. The ‘Engage’ stance will allow units to automatically attack units within range, retreating to their position once the enemy has been dispatched, whilst the ‘Hold’ stance fixes units to their position in a more defensive manner, ignoring engagements.

Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin is available now for PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S. 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. Or expand the tactical arsenal on console with the new Warhammer Bundle – Chaos Gate & Realms of Ruin, which also contains the recently released Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters available on PlayStation® and Xbox Series X|S for a suggested retail price of £59.99 / $74.99 / €74.99.
