Warhammer Plus Streaming Service to Launch August 25

Exclusive access to shows, animations, and a free figurine

Games Workshop is launching Warhammer Plus on August 25, starting at $5.99 a month. 

The niche streaming service geared at Warhammer fans will be available on iOS and Android through dedicated apps, as well as on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku, according to The Verge. Subscribers can pay monthly or pay $59.99 for the whole year.

Shows like Loremasters and Citadel Colour Masterclass will be available at launch, as well as animations like Angels of Death and Hammer and Bolter. Subscribers also can access companion apps and the Warhammer Vault, which includes novelizations and the back catalog of the magazine White Dwarf. 

Finally, The Verge reports that with each subscription, you’ll get an exclusive Warhammer miniature figurine of a character of your choosing. 

While Warhammer fans are sure to find the streaming service entertaining, its release comes at a time when Games Workshop is receiving criticism from fans after changing its stance on intellectual property.

According to Polygon, Games Workshop recently banned “commercially available, third-party 3D-printed parts” in tournaments. The company also legally put an end to Warhammer films and animations created by fans. However, The Verge reports that one of these fan animations (a series called Astartes) will be a part of the Warhammer Plus lineup after gaining popularity on YouTube. 

Warhammer Plus joins the growing number of streaming services entering the already saturated market of more than 200 platforms. However, experts say that niche-based streaming services such as Warhammer Plus might actually be where the streaming service industry is headed, since more people are seeking out individualized content catered to specific interests.
