Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Storm Ground has a release date, and no, it's not a card game

Won't have microtransactions either, the publisher says.

As well as showing off the Might & Magic-esque turn-based battles and some sweet character customization options, the trailer announces you can "GROW YOUR COLLECTION", depicting units as cards. That's led a few people in the comments to worry that Storm Ground will sell additional troops in randomized card packs or the like, to which publisher Focus Home Interactive responded: "The cards only represent units in the game menu. This isn't a card game. And no micro transaction, if you're wondering".

What Storm Ground will feature are "endlessly replayable solo campaigns where roguelike mechanics and Ascension systems ensure every playthrough is a challenge" and online matches, with casual and ranked modes.

Storm Ground is being designed by Vancouver studio Gasket Games, and will be available on Steam.
