Warhammer 40,000: Gladius is ready to announce its first DLC, Reinforcement Pack for Linux and Windows. And thanks to Proxy Studios the DLC will release on Friday October 19th via Steam and GOG.

Since Warhammer 40,000: Gladius has been released players. So for the first time ever it was possible to play a 4X strategy game in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. And Slitherine is eager to see the game so well received.

Reinforcements are ready on the frontlines as war intensifies. These are the high commands of the four armies fighting over the control of Gladius Prime. Sending in squads that could also tip the balance of power. But a new insidious enemy lurks in the shadows. So they had to bide their time, but are now ready to strike…

The Reinforcement Pack brings five new units to the battlefields of Gladius Prime.

One new unit per faction for Warhammer 40,000: Gladius. Also one for neutrals, filling a new role in battle. While increasing the strategy options available to all commanders.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius Reinforcement Pack brings five new units:

  • Tempestus Scions (Astra Militarum)

    Militarum Tempestus Scions are often viewed with fear or resentment by the regular troops. While nicknames such as ‘glory boys’ and ‘big toy soldiers’ are common. Yet this rancour is nothing to the Scions themselves. With training in covert operations and rapid insertion strike-tactics. They also go to battle confident that their every deed is for the good of the Imperium itself.

  • Immortals (Necrons)

    Even before biotransference, the Immortals are the elite soldiers of the Necrontyr. Since they march at the forefront of their galactic conquests. Reborn into tireless metal bodies. So they are now the shock troops of each tomb world’s armies. Necron Warriors are but fodder to be fed to the guns of the foe. Immortals are far more valuable to their Overlords and will also get deployed accordingly. Heavy arms and armour, since they stop at nothing in the completion of their masters’ goals. And will often be available at the heart of any crushing offensive or punitive counter-attack.

  • Flash Gitz (Orks)

    Amongst the richest and most obnoxious of their warlike breed. Flash Gitz travel the galaxy engaging in acts of outrageous piracy and wanton vandalism. They hire themselves out as mercenaries to Ork warbands. Since they are basking in the envy of Boyz jealous of their flashy kit and prodigious dakka. Despite their ostentation, Flash Gitz give a Warboss all the killpower he pays for.
    Completely lethal in gun battles, boarding actions and the like. A mob of Gitz opening fire is nothing short of cataclysmic. Also a punishing hail of energy bolts and bullets fills the air. The Flash Gitz’ victims will come apart amid sprays of blood and blossoms of flame. All before the Gitz stomp the life out of anyone left standing.

  • Land Raider (Space Marines)

    The ground trembles and enemies flee in fear as the mighty Land Raider advances into battle. Massive armour are all but unstoppable. So their noble war engine smashes through walls and grinds over wreckage. Wwhile drumming volley after volley of fire into the foe. Beams of incandescent energy slam into enemy tanks. Knifing through their armoured hulls and reducing them to blazing fireballs.
    Thudding bolt shells punch into the flesh of the foe. While detonating in shocking sprays of gore. The kill count climbs with each passing moment as the Land Raider advances across the war zone. Especially once the tank’s assault ramp slams down and its Adeptus Astartes passengers charge out to add to the carnage.

  • Neophyte Hybrids (Neutral)

    Each cultist is spry and tough of build – weathered over a lifetime of hard labour. SO their physical strength and reaction is bolstered by the alien genes lurking within. Neophyte Hybrids do not bear the outward hallmarks of the Patriarch’s sacred touch; as their brood leaders tell them, their blessings are of the soul more than the body. These third and fourth generation hybrids can pass for human – some are even cunning enough to infiltrate the Astra Militarum. When the cult goes on the attack, these Neophytes show their true colours. Surging from sewers, catacombs and shadowy barracks, they swarm their enemies in such number they can seize control of a planet’s defences within the first hours of conquest.
