The Warhammer name is big in the tabletop scene. The brand has given birth to some the most memorable and high-quality miniatures in the business. It also has a deep lore that spawned video games and spanned several worlds. That lore tore apart its own world some years ago, heralding a new age. But many fans want the old world back, as fans do. Now they can revisit that world on their PC and mobile devices with Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest. Even better, they can save their progress ands continue the battle on both devices thanks to crossplay.
Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest has actually been around since May of this year. It's a free-to-play game that supports in-app purchases. The combat is focused on real-time strategy, with the idea being to raise up an army and conquer a fantasy realm. There's PvE content to help gather resources, but other players can strike at any time to cause setbacks to one another's conquests. The game was just now released for PC via Steam and the Windows store.
The best news about the PC release is that Chaos & Conquest is getting in on the recent trend of crossplay. Players will be able to easily sync the new PC version to their existing iOS or Android version. That means they can keep building their army and laying siege to other players whether they're on the go or stuck at home with a low phone battery.
Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest takes place in the classic Fantasy Battles world. This makes the game unique because it's one of the few products actually still using the setting. Games Workshop, makers of the physical Warhammer game, obliterated the classic realm back in 2015. Now they make use of the Age of Sigmar and 40,000 settings. While a Fantasy Battles return is in the works, Games Workshop says it won't happen for years. For now, Fantasy Battles fans have Chaos & Conquest to fill their need.
Gamers are often wary of mobile ports of franchises, and for good reason. But Warhammer: Chaos & Conquest is one of the better ones. And now that it's on PC, it might be the perfect time to try it out. There will be plenty of newbies to conquer.
