Fantasy Flight Games (“FFG”) announced today they will release Warhammer Fantasy
Roleplay 3rd Edition, a new version of the classic roleplaying game set in Games
Workshop’s Warhammer world. This version features an entirely new innovative
approach to role-playing, one that FFG hopes will attract a whole new generation
of gamers to the role-playing experience.
“We’re proud to re-introduce
the Warhammer world to role-playing with this revolutionary approach,” said
Christian T. Petersen, CEO of FFG. “It is one that harnesses the flavor of prior
WFRP editions, but brings about that experience in a more evocative, tactile,
and visual way than the past,” he continued. “We’ve worked long and hard to to
publish a game that we hope will represent a positive paradigm shift in
roleplaying game design, production, and play experience. This is not another
re-tread of the traditional RPG approach, this is something new, something
exciting. Something that existing RPG fans will want to test for themselves.”
The massive Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd Edition box, which will
retail for $99.95, contains everything a group of adventurers will need to play
– four different rule-books, 36 custom dice, over 300 cards, counters,
“character keeper” boxes, and much more.
“We’re bringing something new
to the table,” added Jay Little, Senior RPG Developer for the Warhammer Fantasy
Roleplay line. “This is a roleplaying system that captures the grim and gritty
Warhammer world that fans have grown to love, wrapped up in an innovative design
and shipped with the stunning production quality that FFG is known for.”
Jay Little will be hosting seminars showcasing Warhammer Fantasy
Roleplay 3rd Edition at the Gen Con games convention in Indianapolis, IN August
13-15, where a preview of the core set and its components will be on display in
FFG’s booth. Preview articles will begin their publication on FFG’s website –
www.fantasyflightgames.com – in the weeks following the Gen Con convention and
will continue leading up to the game’s release this Fall.
