Talisman: The Horus Heresy is a grand strategic war game set in the future of the 31st Millenium. You fight as powerful Warlords, across the galaxy, building vast armies and armadas, either in the service of the Emperor of Mankind or the Warmaster Horus and the forces of Chaos .

Talisman: The Horus Heresy is a fun new way to interact with the Universe of Warhammer 40,000. If you are familiar with The Horus Heresy, you will find new ways to explore it; if you are a newcomer, this game will teach you all about the characters, planets, campaigns and the complex machinery of war employed in this Epic struggle of Good and Evil.

The new combative team play will appeal to fans of Talisman and the Horus Heresy alike. It’s a unique adaptation of Talisman that has been tailored specifically for digital platforms.

In Talisman: The Horus Heresy the player’s experience of Talisman is scaled up exponentially, exploring not a kingdom but a whole galaxy in the 31st Millennium. No longer will you be fighting for the Crown of Command, but for the very future of humanity…

  • Play as one of eight of the galaxy’s greatest heroes or most notorious villains such as Roboute Guilliman or Angron
  • Multiplayer for up to 4 players

Talisman: The Horus Heresy reviews and comments

There's a decent Portion of Warhammer 30,000 in there. That's very good. Based on the talisman principle, that's good, too. Unfortunately, the Thing is not available in German. Due to the whole Amount of Text, some of which are only briefly displayed but are elementary for the Game, it is therefore not very fun. What a pity!

Hello! This is my first Review I write. The Game itself is really great done. Lots of Characters, endless Possibilities and one of my Favorite Games, which can be found in the Warhammer 40K Universe. Only the last DLC "Shadow Crusade" didn't please me, as I find the "Tides of War" gameplay extremely unbalanced

So since I am a big Warhammer Fan I got the good Piece right away. Despite the fact that it is only available in English for the time being, I found my way around right away! But that's also because I already play Relic Privately as a board game! Which impresses me very much that there are two Sides! Good against Evil and vice versa! From me, the Title gets a very good one. Atmosphere, Fun, and good Music in the famous Warhammer 40k Universe

I've been reading Horus Heresy Since 2008. That's why People and Places seem very familiar to me, of course. That's a Plus. About once a Month I play a Game. Mostly when I'm waiting for something and I have to kill the Time. That's where the Game is fun, too. Unfortunately, the Game at the Beginning of the Game is relatively difficult. Towards the End, you become overpowering for what diminishes the Fun of the Game. The DLCs are not worth the Money, in my Opinion either. Hence a clear Recommendation to anyone who likes Horus Heresy And are looking for a Game for in between. But you don't have to matter about the Price of The DLCs. If you don't have anything to Do with Horus Heresy, you'd better leave your Fingers off.

The Game is so much worse at all Levels than the earlier Works "Talisman Prologue" and "Talisman Digital Edition." The Graphics are more confusing in all Areas, it is explained less well, there is no German Translation, the Game principle is not easily accessible to Newcomers, the luck of The dice Seems to be even worse programmed and unfair than in the previous ones Talisman games, there is no feeling of a good Board game or a successful Warhammer atmosphere coming across. I think it's unbelievable what a bad Work the Programmers and Game Designers have delivered here and I'm glad I didn't buy the Seasonpass right away. Maybe at some point I'll give the whole thing another Chance-but I can already say that this Game has not reached the Quality of the other Titles in any Way. What a pity.
