Our team have a huge breadth of experience with Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, and I’m excited to be able to bring the Cubicle 7 approach to the Old World. We’ll be revealing more of our plans in the coming months, so subscribe to our newsletter and keep an eye on our website!"

More details will come as we learn them.

Based more on the first two? Awesome.

I'm an avid fan of first edition and hope this will fit in nicely with that while bringing new folks to the game.
 


Sold! I know some people enjoyed it, but 3e was a swing and a miss for me.

I haven’t run a Warhammer Fantasy campaign in ages, but maybe it’ll be time to rectify that when this comes out.

This means the OLD world, not the Age of Sigmar world, right?

It damn well better, anyway.

I hope they are more inspired by 1st and 2nd and not just rehashing them (which a lot of fans seem to want). Second edition was pretty much complete, so no need to do that over again even with a handful of tweaks.

Fantasy Flight Games puts out quality products. But I think their version (3e) of WFRP implemented several things that deterred new players:
- $100 price tag on core boxed set
- Specialty dice
- Limited the amount of players in core set

I hope Cubical 7 avoids these pitfalls.
