The forthcoming Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin is promising to be quite the event for fans of the franchise. With a November release date in hand, we now have two new additions to the hype train. A brand new demo has launched on Steam, and the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin pre-order bonuses have been revealed.
The Stormcast Eternals are a major faction in Warhammer Age of Sigmar, so it’s no surprise the poster boys of the tabletop game have featured heavily in the marketing for Realms of Ruin. One unit type, Liberators, played a key role in the lore of the franchise. This unit is equipped with Thunderstrike armour, which was crafted by the duardin god Grungni to help the souls of slain Stormcast Eternals smash through the cursed skies created by Be’lakor.
In Realms of Ruin, you’ll be able to equip your Liberators with some shiny new suits of Thunderstrike armour. The Warhammer Design Studio provided the developers at Frontier with the designs for the new Liberators, which they’ve faithfully recreated for the videogame. You’ll also be able to swap between the new and classic looks for your Liberators in the loadout menu.
Realms of Ruin Pre-Order Bonuses
Other new looks being added to the game come in the form of alternate hero skins. Each faction – Stormcast Eternals, Nighthaunt and Orruk Warclans – have their own unique bonus skin. These, and another for the as yet unannounced fourth faction, are included as pre-order bonuses for Realms of Ruin. In addition you’ll also receive two additional profile customisation sets.
Further pre-order bonuses apply to the Deluxe and Ultimate editions only. Both of these will receive the game 3 days ahead of launch, while the latter will also include two Hero DLC packs post-launch. It’s not yet known which heroes these will be.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin launches on 17th November, 2023. The game will be available for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Additionally, Steam Next Fest is closing today. If you’re quick, you can experience the first three missions of Realms of Ruin in single-player mode. Plus there’s also a repeatable single-player Conquest mode mission, unit customisations, and the ability to create your own battlefields.
