The popular tabletop strategy game series Warhammer Underworlds makes its explosive video game debut. Steel Sky Productions and Games Workshop today announced that Warhammer Underworlds: Online has entered Early Access for PC and is now available to purchase from Steam.
Warhammer Underworlds: Online is a high-stakes, turn-based strategy combat game that pits mighty warbands from the Age of Sigmar universe against one another in an eternal player versus player battle for Glory. Players choose a Warband suiting their chosen playstyle and build a card deck. Their goal is then to win by scoring the most Glory Points using dice-and-card mechanics that offer boundless strategic depth.
“Early Access is a great platform to release into,” said Creative Director, Neil Rennison. “After three successful closed betas the game is looking and playing great, but we’re still willing to take on community feedback to help refine an amazing Warhammer Underworlds experience long-term.”
The Early Access release of the game will include four warbands, their respective cards plus a host of universal cards to let players modify their decks. Players will also get access to four exclusive Warband skins only available during the Early Access period.

Warhammer Underworlds, Games Workshop’s ‘Ultimate Competitive Miniatures Game’ has been growing in popularity since its launch in October 2017. The tabletop franchise has released three major instalment boxed sets (Shadespire, Nightvault and Beastgrave) along with more than twenty Warband expansion packs so far, and with a thriving community and tournament scene, the game shows no signs of slowing down. The game’s deckbuilding elements enable a high level of strategy, while its short game time makes it a great option for fans of both miniatures wargaming and board games.
Warhammer Underworlds: Online is a premium PC title, costing $29.99 USD and is available to play in English, Russian, French, Italian, German and Spanish. New content will be distributed in two ways:
- All players will receive continuous, free universal card releases at regular intervals.
- Extra Warband DLC expansions will be available at a future date for an additional cost.
