Warhammer 40,000 is Coming to Magic: The Gathering

Warhammer 40,000 Magic: The Gathering

They’ve teamed with Bandai, McFarlane Toys, and Marvel, and now Games Workshop has announced a new partnership that’s unexpected, Wizards of the Coast.

The two game companies are working together to bring the world of Warhammer 40,000 to the world of Magic: The Gathering. The property will appear in Universes Beyond, a new premium card set for the popular card game.

Universes Beyond will bring the heroes, villains, and xenos races of the 41st Millenium to the card game all featuring brand new art.

What exactly is going on? We’ll have to wait a little bit more for specifics.

The 40K property has appeared in multiple card games on its own and Magic: The Gathering has recently teamed up with numerous unexpected properties like My Little Pony and The Walking Dead. Still, this one is a bit unexpected.

Marvel’s Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar Comics are Getting Variant Covers for Games Workshop’s Warhammer Stores

Games Workshop and Marvel announced in September of 2019 that they would be partnering for a new line of comics based on GW’s properties. In June of 2020, the first comic was announced, Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar which was released in October of 2020.

Games Workshop usually has some sort of tie-ins for this sort of partnership regarding their stores so it was rather odd that the game publisher was a bit silent about the new venture and haven’t sold the comics in their stores both physical and online.

Today GW announced that the comic will be coming to Warhammer shops with exclusive variant covers the first of which will be released very soon.

Check out the first cover below and we’ll have more as they’re revealed and announced.
