The Stormcast Eternals are getting immortalize in a new virtual reality game – It’s Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall!
Yep – you read that right. Coming to PC and to Oculus is a new VR game starring YOU as a Stormcast Eternal. Get ready to step into the shoes of a Lord-Arcanum in Tempestfall.
So, if you’ve watched the trailer, there isn’t much to go on. However, it’s pretty clear that the enemies are going to be Nighthaunt – at least initially. And according to the info provided by the Warhammer Community:
“Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall casts you in the role of a Lord-Arcanum, a mighty warrior-wizard of the God-King’s celestial warriors. You’ll see the sinister realm of Shyish through their eyes as you lead a retinue of Stormcast Eternals across Nagash’s domain, fighting against the rising threat of the Nighthaunts.”
So yeah – It’s going to feature those spooky ghosts in a VR game. I see what you’re doing there…ANYWAY, screenshot:
This is the only image we get from the Pre-Alpha. We’re guessing this is probably what the gameplay is shooting for. There are some other images from the cinematic trailer as well – but we’re not sure if that’s gameplay footage or not. We also have a listing for it on Steam with some more info:

So there you have it – a “VR action-adventure game” with you as a Stormcast Eternal. The release date is sometime in 2021. Honestly, I’m not quite sure what to think of this one. I’m not a big fan of VR or 3D in general. It’s just a medium for games and movies I’m not sold on. We’ll be keeping an eye out on this one – who knows, it might surprise me. And I don’t mean with the jump scares.
Welcome to the Mortal Realms. Now in VR!
