Nomad Games launch Talisman: The Horus Heresy

Sequel to Talisman: Digital Edition brings the popular Talisman franchise to the Warhammer 40,000 Universe

LYMM, CHESHIRE, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 23rd  2016: Nomad Games is pleased to officially launch Talisman: The Horus Heresy is now available via Steam for $24.99 / £18.99. 

Talisman: The Horus Heresy is a digital board game based on the Talisman rule system and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, during the cataclysmic events of the Horus Heresy.

Up to four players will be able to take control of one or more of the galaxy’s greatest heroes or most notorious villains. Taking the side of either traitor or loyalist, these Warlords will form a vast Legion of Space Marines, battalions of tanks and battlefleets of Spacecraft.

The new combative team play will appeal to fans of Talisman and the Horus Heresy alike. It’s a unique adaptation of Talisman that has been tailored specifically for digital platforms.  In Talisman: The Horus Heresy the player’s experience of Talisman is scaled up exponentially, exploring not a kingdom but a whole galaxy in the 31st Millennium. No longer will you be fighting for the Crown of Command, but for the very future of humanity…

“We’re absolutely ecstatic to release this version of Talisman to our fans. The Horus Heresy era, set 10,000 years before the main events of Warhammer 40,000, is an iconic and amazing time in the universe’s timeline. Our game allows players to take their favorite heroes (or villains) and vie for a chance to rule the galaxy.” – Nomad Games MD Donald Whiteford

Nomad Games first brought the multiplayer version of the Games Workshop board game Talisman to PC, tablets and mobile devices in 2014, with the brand selling over one million units to date. Talisman: The Horus Heresy will see several DLC packs throughout 2016, with new heroes, villains, and more as part of the optional add-on plans. Talisman: The Horus Heresy will also be released on mobile formats in the Spring. More news on those formats is forthcoming.
