Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4E Launches At UK Games Expo In June!
I'm a massive fan of 1st Edition Warhammer Fantasy Role Play, it's a dark and gritty world where you're more likely to be battling cultists in a sewer than dragons in a gold filled lair. So I was quite excited to see this, and that they are going back to towards 1st Edition, even the cover looks to be a total homage to the original.
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4th Edition will officially launch at the UK Games Expo this June.
The Fourth Edition will return players to Warhammer's grim world of perilous adventure, and takes its direction from the first and second editions of the game.
Cubicle 7 CEO Dominic McDowall said, "Like so many gamers I grew up on Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay. It's an iconic setting and I'm thrilled to be working on this new edition of the game. Our team have a huge breadth of experience with Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, and I’m excited to be able to bring the Cubicle 7 approach to the Old World. We’ll be revealing more of our plans in the coming months, so subscribe to our newsletter and keep an eye on our website!”
The Cubicle 7 website has yet to update with an official announcement of their own at the time of writing, but the post from November 30, 2017, stated: “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.” Well, it’s now a “few months” later, so this would appear to be the official full-release of the game. The new edition was originally planned for a 2017 release as an update of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition (as the rights to Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd Edition were still held by Fantasy Flight Games), but when prepping the digital release of 2nd Edition along with Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1st Edition, it was decided to delay the release until the full overhaul into a new edition could be completed.
