From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Games Workshop revealed the contents of the Warhammer+ subscription and I have to say I am feeling underwhelmed.
A grab-bag of things I don’t particularly want, all for $5.99 per month? I’ll pass. There’s a couple of things in there I would like, such as the Warhammer animation shows and the Vault could be interesting depending on its content. For now it takes you back 2-3 years, which is not much of an archive. Seeing old 90s White dwarf and Citadel Journal content would be a thrill, along with today’s content of course, but there’s no indication that is coming.
The VIP tickets, apps, and exclusive webcast content don’t interest me at all.
This is the kind of content you can only consider from your own perspective. Some might be up in arms about this, others enthusiastic. Where you sit on the scale here will depend on how you typically engage with Games Workshop content.
The free miniature is something you only get once you have been subscribed for 12 months, or 9 months if you subscribe having already paid for the apps being included here now. Additional exclusive miniatures are where my eyes start to narrow. I’m no fan of paying for the right to pay for things. Again, this take may have no relevance for you.
My opinion is that this is a grab bag of random things shoved behind a paywall in the hopes of gaining… something. Revenues sure, but I’m not convinced that this is the best way for GW to engage an audience and get them regularly buying. Whatever this product is, it is not for me.
