Today, Cubicle 7 announced they were developing a new tabletop RPG set in the world of Warhammer: The Old World, the recently released tabletop game by Games Workshop. The new game will revisit the Warhammer Fantasy setting, but Cubicle 7 has made it clear that it will not replace its Warhammer Fantasy RPGs.
The news was announced at Warhammer World’s launch event for Warhammer: The Old World earlier today. In a press release announcing the new game, Cubicle 7’s Dominic McDowall said, “Exploring a new era with Warhammer: The Old World is an honor and a privilege. As huge fans of the classic Warhammer setting, we’re thrilled to be working with Games Workshop on the new chapter of such a beloved setting.”
It is a remake of the original Warhammer Fantasy setting, which had been destroyed during the build-up to the release of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. The new game takes place in an earlier era of the setting, before the events of the previous game. The game is set long before the forces of chaos destroyed it. As a result, the game focuses on fewer factions, with only nine classic factions available at launch.
The Cubicle 7 company has published tabletop RPGs for Games Workshop settings for several years, including Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, and Warhammer 40,000. Imperium Maledictum was the publisher’s most recent release, a game centered around “ground level” group play investigating sinister forces on behalf of a powerful patron.
A leading publisher of tabletop games, Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd was founded in 2005. Best known for releasing Doctor Who and Lord of the Rings games, Cubicle 7 includes titles based on licensed and self-developed properties.
The company announced the launch of the Old World in an X post today saying:
“Calling all Warhammer enthusiasts! Warhammer: The Old World is taking over Warhammer World on 20th January 2024! Join us to run demos, come and roll the dice, or just pop over to say hello! Be there or be square! eu1.hubs.ly/H075lCt0″
