Talisman: The Horus Heresy has just been released with a 40% discount. Before you pay $3.99 for the game, let’s first tell you what this game is all about. Most of you may already know that this is another Warhammer game among a long list of others. Yet, the reason we write about it is because it’s a game that’s worthy of the franchise. The events surrounding the game take place during Horus Heresy, a time when the galaxy was fueled by a bloody civil war that consumed the worlds of Mankind for 7 Terran years.
This new game is a reimagined board game based on the classic Talisman gameplay in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Since it’s a Talisman game, you play by rolling a dice in order to move around the board. Upon landing into an area, you are presented with several actions to implement. The coolest feature in the game is the ability to play with up to four players locally or online and each player will get to control a memorable hero or villain such as Roboute Guilliman or Angron.
If you cannot find friends to play with, then don’t panic; the game also features AI opponents. Essentially, Talisman: The Horus Heresy proves to be quite the classic Warhammer experience but its randomness can cause frustration among players. We got to admit though, they have one wicked trailer for a board game. You can check the teaser trailer below.
