Players will choose to fight against the forces of the Realm of Chaos and their followers or work for them and gain dark and terrifying powers. Games take place in Kislev and Grand Cathay; the two of them now venture into the Realm of Chaos.
As stated in the Warhammer Community, Tzarina Katarin leads Kislev, while players will also lead a faction of the four Chaos Gods; Nurgle, Slaanesh, Tzeentch, and Korne. The design for the upcoming Warhammer The Old World table game was also used for the game.
The Dragon Empire of Cathay is also shown briefly at the end of the announcement trailer; it is often hinted at in the Warhammer Universe but appears for the first time in games.
