Ranking the top 7 Warhammer fantasy video games

Ranking the top 7 Warhammer fantasy video games ...

The Warhammer Fantasy setting at Games Workshops is a unique beast. It was once a niche thing (dark high fantasy), then it was rebooted into Warhammer Age of Sigmar (hard to explain), and now it appears like theyre bringing proper Warhammer Fantasy back (via Warhammer: The Old World).

It is, and it isnt. Warhammer video games are a great way to immerse yourself in the world of Warhammer Fantasy, because it is varied and quite complex. (If you're more interested in grim sci-fi, check out our list of the best Warhammer 40,000 video games.)

7.Blood Bowl 2

Blood Bowl is a tabletop version of Blitz: The League, except with orcs, elves, and trolls. It's a fun (and funny) tabletop game that's established as a keystay in the Warhammer Fantasy universe. However, due to its multiplayer and robust league mode, Blood Bowl 2 is a fantastic opportunity for those who already have a soft spot for the universe.

Blood Bowl 2 is now available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

6.Warhammer: Chaosbane

The Warhammer Fantasy setting is perfect for a Diablo-like ARPG, and Eko Software and Bigben Interactives do a fantastic job of capturing the character's flaws, while Nurgle always has more nasty creatures to send your way. That high is definitely fading as the game progresses, but it remains a consistently rewarding game that really gets the Gothic, decrepit beauty of Warhammer Fantasy.

Warhammer: Chaosbane is available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

5.Mordheim: City of the Damned

Mordheim: City of the Damned, a strange, extreme challenge on the XCOM formula, is inspired by Games Workshop's 1999 tabletop game. Mercenary warbands from all corners of the Warhammer world have throned the city of Mordheim in search of the wyrdstone, which has led to some difficult skirmishes throughout the game's campaign, and it puts the player in a third-person perspective a la Valkyr

Mordheim: City of the Damned is now available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

4.Warhammer: Dark Omen

Dark Omen is a 1998 sequel to Total War: Warhammer on a smaller, skirmish scale. Embrace the trappings of the grim but oddly charming Warhammer Fantasy setting in the Games Workshops version. However, you must keep in mind that you are only seeing one objective.

GOG has made Warhammer: Dark Omen available on Windows PC.

3.Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat

A lot of people prefer Warhammer: Dark Omen to its predecessor. I am not one of them. This 1995 strategy game is unmistakably Warhammer. From the dark but campy cutscenes to the over-the-top battle dialogue, Shadow of the Horned Rat is unmistakable.

Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat is now available on Windows PC through GOG.

2.Warhammer: Vermintide 2

Fatsharks Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a 2018 first-person, co-op horde survival game set in the End Times (a somewhat slow apocalypse of sorts that ushered in the Age of Sigmar) era of the Warhammer Fantasy setting. The variety of enemies is as surprising as the level design which is only further refined and improved with the wonderful DLC campaigns.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is now available on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

1.Total War: Warhammer 2

Creative Assembly took everything wonderful about the Warhammer Fantasy setting and the tabletop battle game and refined most of it to near perfection: sprawling maps, ever-chaotic battlefields, story intrigue at a massive scale, and beautifully detailed graphics all combine to make this the finest Warhammer Fantasy game in the world. (Total War: Warhammer 3 is also worth noting on this list, especially after its recent Immortal Empires expansion, but its still ironing out its many flaws.)

Total War: Warhammer 2 is now available on Windows PC, Mac, and Linux.
