Get ready for some grimdark RPG sessions: the Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soulbound pre-order is now live.
While the Warhammer franchise is primarily known for its tabletop miniatures game (and a few video games, too), there's also a pencil & paper role-playing game on the way. Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soulbound has a team of players exploring the mortal realms and fighting otherworldly horrors.
Here's a quick teaser for the overall story:
As Sigmar’s Storm broke upon the hordes of Chaos, a flicker of hope was rekindled in the people of the Mortal Realms. The seeds of civilisation were planted and grew into new bastions of Order, and for a moment it almost seemed the endless tide of darkness could be held back.
But then came the Necroquake, as the undead legions of Nagash rose up to shatter the cities of Sigmar. Hope dwindles and once more darkness threatens to engulf the Mortal Realms…
RPG nerds will surely want to get in on this brand-new game, and now they can put in a pre-order for the rulebook or some pretty cool accessories. This is also effectively a soft launch; anyone who pre-orders the physical book will also get a free digital edition via Drive Thru RPG today!
How Do I Make a Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soulbound Pre-Order?
Pre-orders for Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soulbound (and associated accessories) can be made via the game's official website.
It should be noted that the Starter Set isn't quite ready just yet; pre-orders for that item will kick off later in the year.
This includes the rulebook with 13 chapters and a free digital edition redeemable through Drive Thru RPG.
The Collector's Edition comes in a high-quality box with a magnetically-sealed lid. The book itself has a deep blue faux leather cover and a Stormcast Eternal Hammer and the symbols of the Mortal Realms detailed in gold foil. This, of course, also includes a free copy of the digital edition.
If your pesky players keep trying to peek at your dice, then this stylish Gamemaster's Screen will protect your many secrets.
This poster beautifully details The Great Parch, the starting realm for Soulbound.
