The game, developed by How to Survive studio Eko Software, will be the first hack-and-slash title in the Warhammer universe. It is set in the Old World, “a dark and bloody continent devastated by the wars against Chaos.” Players will dive into the story and “become a hero” while fighting to survive the desolation.
Additional information on the story, playable races, key realms and geography, and platforms will be announced in the future.

“We are very pleased to work with Games Workshop developing a game which draws from the incredible potential of the Warhammer world. The Eko Software and Bigben teams have long been fans of this franchise from day one, including myself. Warhammer Fantasy Battles is well suited to offer players something quite innovative in the timeless Hack and Slash genre.”
Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop
“We’re really pleased to start this new partnership with Bigben, and this project will be an amazing opportunity for gamers to experience an epic story in the first Hack and Slash game set in the classic Warhammer Fantasy world. Eko did a great job with their How To Survive series and we’re confident they are going to do something amazing with our IP. I know the Bigben and Eko staff are massive fans of our lore and I can’t wait to see what they come up with.”
