WizKids Posts New Warhammer: Age of Sigmar: The Rise and Fall of Anvalor Preview

The enemy of my enemy can also be my enemy. In The Rise & Fall of Anvalor, players must work together... sort of... to protect the city from the rampaging hordes. However, everyone wants the city for themselves, and at the end of the game, only one group can fully control the city. So, while you look to build your resources, you must also try and keep your opponents/allies from doing the same. WizKids has posted up a new preview of this board game coming out next month.

From the website:

Get ready for a new kind of Warhammer Age of Sigmar excitement. In The Rise & Fall of Anvalor your official task is to help build and defend Anvalor together with the other Factions. However, your real goal is to gather the most Influence and secure dominance over Anvalor, even if it might ultimately cause the fall of the city. Gather the most Influence for your Faction by building City Buildings and defeating enemies during vicious assaults. At the end of the game, the player who has the most Influence over the city reigns supreme, and secures their dominance over The Great Parch!

In the region of Aqshy, even if your uneasy allies place their resources in the perfect place, your mutual enemies can be strong and unpredictable. You’ll build resources to block your allies from developing their strongest options, and they’ll return the favor. They’ll weaken enemies and you’ll try to deliver the killing blow. Each turn will provide many choices, so you’ll get to pivot as you learn the strategies best suited to your common enemy as well as your allies.

Play as 1 of 6 factions, each with 4 different aspects and against 1 out of 3 enemies each with a difficulty of 1-4. Coupled with the ability to play solo, there’s an enormous amount of game content.
