    I'm glad that they found a publisher which specializes in grimdark games:

    I will hope and pray that this is good, like I do for every other Warhammer game, but my patience is wearing pretty fucking thin. Let's hope this studio surprises us.

    It's a little weird that they're opting to greenlight an action game that isn't Space Marine 2, given that 40k is more popular than their fantasy setting and SM ended on something of a cliffhanger

    Warhammer Fantasy is actually a perfect setting for a Diablo like outing if utilized fully. Grimdark, bestiary, chaos: it's all there. It's a surprise that no one has tried to make this game years ago. But Games Workshop is notorious for its incompetence. Kill your setting because minis don't sell enough, and then start producing video games to promote it. Yeah, that'll increase your sales.

    A proper WFRP crpg would be nice, with all the careers and trappings. So far all we got is Warhammer quest.

    The question is if this is going to be a Diablo like or Dark Souls like with excessive dodging and shit, based around player reflexes and not character stats and equipment.

    OK a proper Warhammer Fantasy transition into a CRPG should not be a Diablo clone... but I'll take it.

    First gameplay video: not sure about the gameplay, but at least it looks (art\graphics) way better than Diablo 3 and Path of Exile.

    It seems Diablo 1 in modern engine.

    It doesn't look very dynamic, does it? Lots of standing there pushing one button.

    Really don't see that dynamism happening from someone playing with a controller.

    I really wish a real WFRP game is made one day. Its really surprising since there's nearly 40 years of rpgs, and how popular a real WFRP crpg would be, and no one is putting 2 and 2 together to make it happen.

    Well, at least we can hope this game has better chardev than whatever that shit for dumb children was in Diablo 3. I have zero hope it is anything but kid-friendly system lightly "influenced" by WH.

    It isn't half as surprising when you look at how Games Workshop handles the digital side. I suspect they're eternally worried that the digital property could supplant the tabletop and make it hard to induce purchases of models etc.
