The Loyalists strike back in the new Horus Heresy: Legions expansion
Coming on 21st July, the Dropsite Massacre expansion introduces over 150 new cards focused on Iron Hands, Salamanders and Raven Guard
Everguild is pleased to announce Dropsite Massacre, the next expansion for Warhammer The Horus Heresy: Legions coming into the game on July 21st. This exciting expansion will delve into the tragic events surrounding the Isstvan V massacre and introduce the three loyalist Legions that took the fight to the traitors after Horus began his rebellion.
Four months after its massive relaunch with the Shadow of the Warmaster expansion, the game is receiving a new major content update with Dropsite Massacre. Players will take command of a revamped version of the three loyalist Legions that launched the first massive offensive against the traitors: the cold and prideful Iron Hands, the stalwart Salamanders, and the elusive Raven Guard. The Iron Hands will become available at the expansion’s launch, while the Salamanders and Raven Guard will arrive later to the battlefield in bi-weekly releases, on 4th August and 18th August respectively. A last batch of content will come on 1st September bringing new neutral cards, focused on the Traitor Auxilia and Mechanicum forces which fought alongside the Astartes on Isstvan V.
Dropsite Massacre brings forth a fresh new gameplay experience for each of the new Legions. Players can expect to see familiar characters in the new collections, but all the armies have been built from scratch with new cards, characters, meticulously crafted artwork and exciting new mechanics, all ready to bring a new strategic layer to Horus Heresy: Legions.
The Isstvan V massacre was a pivotal event during the Horus Heresy in which the Iron Hands, Salamanders and Raven Guard legions tried to stop Horus in his tracks, before his vile forces had a chance to spread through the Galaxy. Little did they know of the destiny that their doomed resistance would find on that barren world. Witness the crucial events that shaped the fates of the three loyalist Legions and engage in intense battles as you navigate their unique play styles and powerful abilities.
