‘Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall’ Gets First Look at Gameplay, Invite-only Beta


Due to launch later this year on PC VR and Quest, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall, is shaping up to look like a rather pretty (if creepy) game with an interesting mix of melee & magic combat. Developer Carbon Studio has revealed a new trailer with a glimpse of what players can expect, and announced an invite-only beta which you can sign up for a chance to join.

Not to be confused with the other recent Warhammer VR game (Warhammer 40K: Battle Sister), Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall is set in the earlier, more fantasy-focused epoch of the Warhammer universe. The game is set to launch some time this year, but so far we’ve only seem brief glimpses of it in action.

A new trailer from developer Carbon Studio doesn’t exactly break down Tempestfall’s combat in detail, but it’s the clearest look so far at a game that will have you wielding swords, maces, and magic.

Though the trailer is surely captured from the game’s PC version and visuals will vary on Quest, Tempestfall is shaping up to be a pretty good looking game with a range of impressive effects, no doubt built atop the studio’s prior experience with the VR spellcasting game The Wizards.

Beyond the new trailer, Carbon Studio is now accepting registrations for an invite-only beta of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall, which you can sign-up for by visiting the game’s official Discord. The studio is also giving away an Oculus Quest 2 and a themed t-shirt, which you can get a chance to win with just a few clicks—check out the full details at the studio’s blog.

  • Who would even ever confuse a Warhammer game with a Warhammer 40,000 game?

    • Why do you keep posting full tweets? If you’re really a “VRreporter” then report somewhere — don’t highjack a real reporter’s page. This is a comments section, not a “look at me — I’m a REPORTER” section.

      • I’ll promote stuff worth promoting everywhere I can, with reasonable time/effort. Occasionally, though not very often, it leads to your beloved real reporters finally writing about it in a proper post so that’s good enough for me! Put me on block then you can pretend they were first instead of be pitiful over something like this. It happened for this post, where I posted it days earlier, it happened for the Steam Next Fest thing, it happened for the trailer to Jetborne Racing (though they’ve yet to actually tell people it released), and so on. It didn’t happen for the two Into the Darkness trailers so far but since that’s now included in the Steam Next Fest stuff they sorta finally did promote it. I’m happy no matter what you say baby. I’d be happier if they did it more often but oh well, better than nothing. Bye babe.

          I don’t think you understand the difference between reporting and spamming. We’re here for the article and relevant discussion around it, not for page long postings of VR game videos with little-to-no relation to the article. I suggest everyone else blocks you, as I now have (so don’t bother replying).

          • I don’t think your reply is relevant to anything I wrote there, nowhere did I say it’a for you to see the comment, but rather to see the site post that follow after my comment as in my examples, but you do you babe.
