Well, today’s just going to be all sorts of full of news. Privateer Press has just announced that they are coming out with a new edition of Warmachine and Hordes. The core rules for the game will be in game shops on June 29th, with online versions available for free from the Privateer Press website on June 12th. Anyone visiting Lock & Load Gamefest will be able to check out this new edition there.

“The current editions of the games are now six years old,” said WARMACHINE and HORDES creator and Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson. “During that time we’ve accumulated a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience from observing, listening to, and interacting with our worldwide community of players and retailers about how to continue to improve their experience with our games. After years of intensive work, we’re finally ready to share the outcome of that process and give our community what they’ve been asking for in our games.”

This new version is being redesigned to be faster to play and more intuitive. Other products besides the core rulebook are new faction decks, allowing players to update their current cards, as well as new core starter boxes for those that want to get into the game with this new edition.

Note: The traffic to the Privateer site’s a bit crazy right now. So hopefully it’ll load for you soon.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Question: It’s been barely 2 weeks since they called out undesirable retailers as “parasites” and in the shadow of that PR shytestorm they decide to roll out a huge new edition of their flagship games. Are they trying to tank their own products?

    Well, here’s hoping that Manowars become a viable option again. And that War Room will be not only updated immediately but that I can keep all the cards I paid for. And that a battlebox-only game is still just as fun as a full-scale war. And that the “increased effectiveness” of warjacks and warbeasts on the table carries over into Karchev. And that…eh, I could go on a long while here.

    Regardless, I’ll check it out. I really haven’t had the time over the last year to follow stuff like Davos mentions, so really the only way PP can affect my goodwill toward them is poor product. Their last edition change turned out to have some real improvements to the overall game. I’ll trust them on this one.
