Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall Rescheduled For Q4 Launch; Second Closed Beta in September

With additional improvements on the way, Tempestfall’s launch is now scheduled for Q4 2021

August 31, 2021 - Chorzow, Poland - Two months ago, Carbon Studio introduced the world to a brand new Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall Gameplay Reveal Trailer. The next big step was the Closed Beta, where VR players traversed the first stages of the game, and entered an overrun city. 
'The group of players who tried out Tempestfall during the Closed Beta gave us a lot of very cool ideas and useful suggestions. We are aware that the VR gaming landscape is constantly evolving and improving, which is why we want to take a bit of extra time to ensure Tempestfall meets the expectations of both casual and hardcore VR gamers.' - states Carbon Studio’s Co-Founder Aleksander Caban.
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall is currently scheduled to release on Steam and Oculus Store in Q4 2021, due to the planned additional improvements.
Tempestfall’s beta testers were excited for the game and highlighted some aspects that can be further enhanced. Most notably, the blocking system is being improved to suit different combat playstyles - whether stationary or mobile in battle, everyone should enjoy Tempestfall’s intuitive weapon contact-based blocking.  

Among other unlisted improvements, players can also expect a deeper character progression system, with additional rewards for exploration.
In order to ensure the game meets the expected level of quality, Carbon Studio has also announced a second Closed Beta, currently scheduled for late September 2021. For more information and how to join, visit Carbon Studio’s official Discord channel at
We look forward to sharing more details, gameplay trailers, and hands-on opportunities in the future.

About the Game
Battle the forces of Nighthaunt in this VR-exclusive action-adventure Warhammer Age of Sigmar game. Wield iconic weapons of a Lord-Arcanum and deliver Sigmar’s justice using motion-based abilities and magic across the realm of Death.
Set in the Age of Sigmar universe, Tempestfall’s campaign begins following the devastating event noted in history as the Necroquake in the Realm of Death, also called Shyish. This massive explosion of dark magic has triggered the Nighthaunt forces to rise up all across the Mortal Realms. In response a retinue of Stormcast Eternals, the embodiment of Sigmar’s wrath made manifest, gifted with superhuman speed, strength and endurance has been specially assembled.  The quest to lead this retinue and investigate this new threat to the Mortal Realms, and the dangerous task of a hands-on investigation in Shyish, falls to you, Lord-Arcanum Castor Stormscryer.
Become a mighty Lord-Arcanum, wielder of storm magic, and lead a Stormcast Eternal task force to recover your brethren’s lost souls. Walk the realm of Death and engage the dreaded Nighthaunt using iconic weapons of a Lord-Arcanum with immersive motion-based abilities and magic. Failure is not an option.
