Warhammer Underworlds: Online – Warband: Stormsire’s Cursebreakers Review

Warhammer Underworlds: Online – Warband: Stormsire’s Cursebreakers
Steel Sky Productions

When Warhammer Underworlds: Online debuted almost exactly one year ago (April 21, 2021), it quickly gained a dedicated following who appreciated its highly strategic and nuanced gameplay. Not only has it managed to carve out its own niche (it’s one of the only card and dice games), but it also features the exciting Warhammer IP—and does a great job at it.

Warhammer Underworlds: Online’s developers, Steel Sky Productions, have recently released a new DLC Warband, along with a price adjustment, for their card and dice-based tactical extravaganza.

The new DLC pack in question is called Warhammer Underworlds: Online – Warband: Stormsire’s Cursebreakers, and introduces…you guessed it— Stormsire’s Cursebreakers, a trio of badass battle mages. Since all three of these mages are so powerful (elite level), there are only three of them.

What’s really cool about this new Warband is that all three of them are also spellcasters, allowing them to make use of a wide range of new cards and abilities. Stormsire’s Cursebreakers are available now at a price point of $6.99, which is pretty reasonable for what you get.

Here are some of the features of Warhammer Underworlds: Online – Warband: Stormsire’s Cursebreakers the DLC (via Steam) below:

Battle-mages with mastery over howling storm magic who has been sent to investigate the curse of Shadespire. Stormsire’s Cursebreakers are a small, elite Warband. All three are wizards, letting them make use of special spell cards. Unlock this Warband and play as Stormsire’s Cursebreakers in Warhammer Underworlds: Online now.

FIGHTERS

Stormsire and his two companions inspire when they successfully cast a spell. Prepare your decks!

Averon Stormsire is able to attack from a range – use this to your advantage and keep your distance!

Ammis Dawnguard and Rastus the Charmed have the ability to empower their attacks!

TIPS AND TRICKS

Thanks to their excellent offensive abilities, spellcasting, range, and great durability, you may employ both offensive and defensive strategies while playing Stormsire’s Cursebreakers!

With every member of your Warband being a wizard, you’ll want to make sure to take as many spell gambits as possible to inspire them and take out the enemy!

Like their brethren in the Farstriders and Steelheart’s Champions, Stormsire’s Cursebreakers have a range of powerful upgrades available, allowing you to turn your chosen fighter into an unstoppable juggernaut – if you’ve got the Glory.

This DLC pack is accompanied by a big update for the base game, most notably a permanent price reduction to $9.99 USD. This price includes Steelheart’s Champions and Magore’s Fiends as starter Warbands, with all the others supplied as DLC packs for $6.99 USD each. Players that bought the game before February 10th gain access to a set of exclusive skins for all the existing Warbands.

The update also adds emotes, deck templates to help out new players, and a wide range of bug fixes. You can read more about the update here.

What I really like about this Warband is that they not only offer a lot of durability, but they reach pretty far across the battle maps with their spells, and when they are engaged at closer ranges, they hold up pretty well against melee attacks.

RATING: 8.5/10

Warhammer Underworlds: Online has some great graphics so you’ll need a pretty beefy gaming PC or gaming laptop in order to play it at a decent framerate. Therefore, you may just want to invest in a superior gaming rig:
