Games Workshop has dropped a BIG clue about this summer and what’s in store for the 40k players and fans.
In a recent post for the Warhammer Community, Games Workshop’s head of the Warhammer books and Boxed Games team, Pete Foley, was talking up Narrative Play and what it’s a blast for fans of the hobby. Most of the story was focused on how players participate in the Narrative, from creating their own custom scenarios to writing back story for their army and units. He even talked about a cool event happening this summer: Coalescence – A Global Age of Sigmar Narrative Event.
Contact a NEO collaborator for more info on how to participate.
But then Pete dropped some an pretty interesting tidbit for 40k players:
“As for Warhammer 40,000, there are some great narrative play opportunities coming this summer, but you will have to stay posted here on the Warhammer Community site and Facebook for more details on that. Needless to say, it’s going to involve war! I think I’m going to cast my lot with the Despoiler and finally watch the galaxy burn!”
Well now…that’s quite interesting! Last year Games Workshop ran a Global Event for Age of Sigmar: Season of War. It was a pretty massive event where players the world over were participating. GW even had weekly challenges/buffs for the participating factions. And after running such a massive event, hopefully Games Workshop has learned a few things from the experience. I’m sure what ever they do this year will only be better!
This year it’s starting to sound like Games Workshop has their eyes set on the events after the Gathering Storm. The stage is set for a pretty epic showdown between Guilliman and Abaddon’s forces. So if you’re a fan of 40k now is the perfect time to start prepping for war because it’s coming this summer!
Will you set out to defend the Imperium, aid Abaddon in it’s destruction, or will you sit back and watch the galaxy burn?
