The original Warhammer world was “destroyed” in 2015. The Warhammer: The Game of Fantasy Battles changed forever when Games Workshop (though they said Archaon was responsible) destroyed the world.
Of course we know now that the Old World in Warhammer is coming back.
Reading the most recent Old World Development Diary entry, The Main Factions Revealed we found out what the core factions will be in the game.
I quite like the fact that Chaos is almost non-existent in this era.
The battles of Warhammer: the Old World take place in the decades immediately before the Siege of Praag.
This means that Chaos is not as strong as it was in previous incarnations of Warhammer.
Chaos Daemons have existed in the past and will again, but there is an ebb and flow to the power of Chaos – in our period Chaos is at its lowest ebb in a long time.
You can still play Chaos if you want, but I like the fact that the focus is on the core factions.
