Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress includes the RPG elements of previous Warhammer Quest games, combining it with the corridor crawling of Space Hulk, and adding the terrifying unknowns of the deadly fortresses left by the Old Ones. Players pick an explorer (of 8 total) and begin a quest (either alone or with friends). Characters will develop and gain new gear between runs, with each hero gaining new unique abilities and challenges. Players will face the forces of Chaos (Chaos Space Marines, Traitor Guardsmen, mechanized Cultists, Beastmen), and hostile xeno forces (Ur-Ghuls, Spindle Drones). The game uses an innovative system of procedural generation to change the layouts, enemies and details for every game.
Games Workshop plans for Blackstone Fortress to be the core of a new series which will include new expansions with new battlegrounds, new enemies, and new characters.
All models included in the game are new sculpts, and push fit (no glue required for assembly). The rules for the game are split across five booklets, for easy rules reverence. The game is for 1 – 5 players. MSRP was not announced.
