New Video Game Based On Talisman Releases Today

May 16, 2019

By: William Worrall


Nomad Games and Asmodee Digital have today announced the release of a brand-new game based on the world-famous Talisman board game franchise. The new title, Talisman: Origins, focuses on a solo experience and takes players through the history and lore of the Talisman universe. Players will traverse through several different books, going on adventures based not only on the world of Talisman but also the Talisman: Digital Edition expansion packs.

Talisman: Origins puts you in control of 12 different characters as you learn the history of Talisman, including the new Great Wizard.  Learn about the Crown of Command, the return of the Dragons, the Ifrit War and the rise of the guilds. You choose which side of history you stand on, elect to work on the side of good or become an evil overlord controlling your own hordes as they attack the fortresses of your enemies.

As well as the entirely new title, Asmodee Digital announced a brand new expansion for Talisman: Digital Edition. The Ancient Beasts adds 2 new characters, 15 new beasts, 2 new endings and a whole lot more to the original 2014 title. You can get the new DLC right now across all three platforms for the base game, including the iOS app store, the Google play store and Steam. Similarly Talisman: Origins is already available from all 3 platforms.

The original Talisman was released physically back in 1983 by Games Workshop, so it has a pretty long 30+ year history behind it. Between 2008-2017 FFG took over responsibilities for producing the game under license from GW but they have recently taken the rights back.
