Augmented Reality in Wargaming

tacticsI stumbled upon the video below and decided to share.

I’ve thought for a long time that this is the future of games like Warhammer 40K. It is probable we will use some kind of glasses instead of watching through tablets or phones. Maybe something like Microsoft’s HoloLens?



At first it will be just rules help. Identifying different model types. Then it will show ongoing effects, explosions, fires, dangerous terrain. Next stage will probably be measuring distances and so on

The future is coming and it’s coming fast and GW will probably use it to make our games faster, smoother, more immersive.

Other companies sure will.
