A new character has joined Warhammer 40,000: Lost Crusade. It’s none other than the Emperor’s Champion known as Avar. Players should be happy to know that this is the first game in the franchise to feature this new character.

So who is Avar? The Emperor’s Champion is considered as one of the Imperium’s most powerful warriors. After getting visions from the God-Emperor, Avar was the one appointed by the Chaplains of the Black Templar Chapter. As Champion, Avar is given access to some of the most powerful relics.

Avar arrives in the game courtesy of an update which also features:

    • The new story comes with characters, details, and lore that any Warhammer 40,000 fan is sure to love.
