Taking part in the time-limited demo, running from October 3rd to 10th will earn players exclusive cosmetic rewards at launch.
London, UK, September 29th, 2022 — Creators of The Horus Heresy: Legions, Everguild, are excited to announce players will get their first hands-on opportunity with digital card game, Warhammer 40,000: Warpforge in the upcoming Steam Next Fest. A free playable alpha demo will showcase its innovative battle mechanics and introduce two major armies: Ultramarines and the Orks’ Goff Clan. Those who take part will earn exclusive cosmetic rewards in the final game. The alpha demo will only be available during the event, from October 3rd to October 10th, 2022.
Warpforge is an upcoming collectible digital card game based on Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe. Players will immerse themselves in this vast universe through single-player campaigns exploring each of the warring factions. They will fight in draft and constructed competitive modes in both regular play and time-limited competitions with unique rules of engagement. Committed players will be able to take part in massive alliance wars, which will test the mettle of even the most seasoned veterans.
During Steam Next Fest, players will have the option to command two of the initial armies in the game: the brutal Goff Orks and the renowned Ultramarines. Each will feature several warlords and unique play styles as well as game mechanics, which players will be able to try out in both multiplayer and practice modes. Better yet, all participants will earn exclusive in-game cosmetics for taking part and for reaching certain milestones.
Beyond this first hands-on experience with the game, a developer livestream on Steam during Next Fest will provide even more information about the plans and development roadmap ahead of the game’s launch in 2023. Expect information about the initial line-up of armies, game modes, closed beta periods, supported languages, and more!
Warhammer 40,000: Warpforge is set to launch in 2023 on Steam. Other platforms will follow, including a mobile version with full cross-platform support. Players can already wishlist the game on Steam, join the Discord channel and sign up to the mailing list to stay up to date with the development.
