Nexon Signs License Agreement With Games Workshop To Develop New 'Warhammer Age of Sigmar' Game For PC And Consoles

Nexon announced a licensing agreement with Games Workshop for development/publishing of a new PvE multiplayer RPG game based on the Warhammer Age of Sigmar fantasy franchise.

It is an era of war. The Mortal Realms have been despoiled. Ravaged by the followers of the Chaos Gods, they stand on the brink of destruction.

Players will command the war hosts of the God-king Sigmar and his allies as they fight to reignite hope and bring order back to the realms. Each season, players will collect characters and enter new realms. Each character comes with unique options, stories and gameplay. Players will be able to customize their characters and work cooperatively to guide how sections of the Realms are retaken.

Built on the legacy of Age of Sigmar, the new Virtual World will feature a socially interactive player-versus-environment world supported by Nexon’s Live Operations for sustaining the fun with new content and service.

“Under the creative direction of Games Workshop, Warhammer has become one of the world’s most exciting and popular game franchises, and Nexon is the global leader in developing Virtual Worlds,” said Colin Robinson, Nexon Vice President of Development Partnerships. “We look forward to extending this legacy that will bring the creative excellence of Warhammer to a Virtual World for PC, consoles and mobile platforms.”

“As one of the world’s largest game publishers, Nexon is the ideal long-term strategic partner to bring Warhammer Age of Sigmar to life in a unique new way that will appeal to gamers the world over,” Jon Gillard, Head of Global Licensing for Games Workshop. “Nexon’s world-class Live Operations and infrastructure offers exciting opportunities for engaging current and new Warhammer fans in this massive universe. We’re really excited to see the fruits of this collaboration over the coming years.”

The new Warhammer Age of Sigmar game will be coming to PC, console and mobile (iOS / Android).
