After a few weeks of teasing the fans, Games Workshop has finally revealed the secrets that hide inside Warhammer Quest: Cursed City. The latest entry in the venerable Warhammer Quest series takes place in a dark, doomed city (natch) and gives the game the most stylized boxed art in the series' history.
Warhammer Quest: Cursed City Is As Grimdark As It Gets
Warhammer Quest is a series that has been going on since the 90s, although it took an 18-year-break. Warhammer Quest: Cursed City is the fifth entry in the series, and seems to be harking back to the original Warhammer's dark fantasy roots, rather than the cosmic horror of more recent days. Cursed City takes place in a huge city, once ran by noble bloodlines, but now laid to waste by a powerful vampire. With citizens often slaughters in streets filled with all manner of foul creatures, Ulfenkarn is no place for a sane person to be.
Luckily the heroes Warhammer Quest: Cursed City are anything but sane. Rather than a ragtag handful of heroes as in previous games, this time the players have up to 8 different characters to choose from, including a disgraced vampire hunter, and even a corpse-eating ogor (basically an ogre, but this is Age of Sigmar we're talking about.) You'll be facing off against vampire lords, mad scientists, and numerous members of the undead, to save Ulfenkarn from its doomed future.
Time On Out Hands
