“This game is a great addition to the Talisman family. If you are looking for the boardgame experience but your friends are too far away, then check out Talisman: Horus Heresy – you won’t be disappointed!”
4/5 – Bell of Lost Souls

“The Horus Heresy offers a wonderful, local (and online) multiplayer experience for up to four players, and its simple gameplay offers an oddly relaxed approach to galactic warfare.”

About This Game

Talisman: The Horus Heresy is a grand strategic war game set in the dark future of the 31st Millennium.

Fight as powerful Warlords, building vast legions and armadas, either in the service of the Emperor of Mankind or the Warmaster Horus and his traitorous forces. Experience the most devastating civil war in the history of the Imperium, commanding your mighty battleships through the untold horrors of the Warp. Based on the classic Talisman board game, Talisman: Horus Heresy recreates the epic battles of the Horus Heresy through 2v2 battles.

Find new ways to explore the grim future of a universe torn apart by Heresy. Experience the rich characters, planets, campaigns and the complex machinery of war employed in this epic struggle of good and evil. Witness the atrocities that caused the fall of the Imperium of Man first hand!

Built from the ground up for digital platforms but based on the classic Talisman board game, this is a unique experience for Talisman newcomers and veterans alike. Explore not just a realm, but a whole galaxy torn apart by heresy in the 31st Millennium. Search the furthest reaches of space, uncovering deadly enemies and powerful weapons as you traverse the game board.
