Here’s the latest on 40K 8th Edition. It’s all starting to come out now.
GW has confirmed the following 3 modes of play for Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition.
I sense a familiar feeling…
Open Play – Bring whatever you want and get fighting.
Narrative Play – Craft a story, bring what makes sense and forge the narrative.
Matched Play – Balanced points, and competitive play. Bring your game face and throw down!
Sound familiar you Grimdark players?
That’s because that matches exactly what the Age of Sigmar’s General’s Handbook has.
It looks like GW is also trying to speed up 8th Edition. From both the recent article and their review video they dropped these two datapoints:
- 1500 pt game is designed to take 90 minutes.
- 1000-2000 pt game should clock in at 2 hours.
I’m all for anything that will get me playing more games in the same time.
~More as it comes in.
