Warhammer Fourth Edition News

Post by Jon Hodgson » Thu Nov 30, 2017 2:59 pm

We’ve been hard at work on the new edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, and this week we’re going to be sharing the first big slices of news with you!

Release Date
There has been an amazing amount of excitement around Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition – we’re at the beginning of the journey but it’s already been a tremendous project thanks to the energy and enthusiasm of all the Warhammer fans we’ve been talking to since the project was announced. Thanks to you all for being awesome, and thanks for your patience waiting for news!

Design lead Dominic McDowall is on hand to tell us about the game’s development:

“The initial plan was to make some small updates to the awesome second edition, and that would mean we would be able to release the game in 2017. We’re all huge fans of the first and second editions of WFRP, and we wanted to take the game back to those roots.

“When I got into the guts of the game I started seeing more opportunities to add in some of the things we’ve learned over the years. This more creative direction meant a longer development phase. Games Workshop are extremely supportive of us taking the time we need to make WFRP Fourth Edition the very best game it can be, and so that’s what we did. I’m very excited about the way things have come together!

“The release date of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition will be set for mid-2018, with a specific date to be set in a few months. Thank you for your patience while we invest the time to make the best game we can.”


We have some exciting events planned around the release date, so stay tuned for the latest new on those!

Covers
The initial releases for WFRP Fourth Edition will be a core rulebook and a boxed starter set. We’ve commissioned Ralph Horsley to paint a pair of covers for these which we’re very excited to share today! As you can see our desperate band have been enjoying some good times in Ubersreik, (or at least some of them have) before a familiar scene unfolds!

We’ll have more to share tomorrow, including news of the return of a multi-part campaign favourite from first edition, so keep an eye on our website and social media!

Good to have some news! The covers look fab, and I'm excited that you will remake the Doomstones campaign ... for surely there can be no other first edition multi-part campaign you are alluding to?

Sad about the push to mid 2018, but since I didn't think we'd see another edition soon anyways, I guess I will survive.

One thing I am wondering about is if you will do a playtest, open or closed, involving fans?

Thanks for the news

Just noticed the tie-in between those two covers. Wonderful stuff. All bodes really well.

Mr McDowall is a completely unknown entity to me.

Anyone willing to speculate what they've learned over the years?

The Moria boxed set and THIS announcement in the same week?

Are you going to stop us from making any Christmas gift in order to save money?
