Slitherine and Games Workshop renew their relationship. While they offer a fresh approach to the Warhammer 40,000 universe – planetary 4X. So now we have a new experience on the way, coming to Linux.
So Warhammer 40,000: Gladius incorporates the dark, gothic, far future science-fantasy setting. All set in aspects never before seen. Also including a brand new, deep storyline. This creation combines elements of 4X gameplay with a combat-focused system. The evolution of technology and construction of infrastructures. Exploration of an unknown world, goes hand in hand with the management of military resources. Including heroes with special abilities and mighty war machines. Also, the games coming to Steam for Linux and Windows sometime in 2017.
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War | Announcement Trailer:
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius design gives four totally different gameplay experiences. Well depending on which factions a player chooses. Space Marines, Astra Militarum (aka Imperial Guard), Orks and Necrons. Since each have dramatically different characteristics. Both in how they develop and expand. As well as how they interact with allies and enemies. This gives the game virtually endless replay value. So players get the chance to play out the same experience in totally divergent ways.
In Warhammer 40,000: Gladius there is also a massive difference between playing solo or in multiplayer. The deep storyline was created from scratch to allow players to explore an entire world and lead the expansion of an empire from the ground up. The discovery of ancient artefacts and the custom-crafted quests will reveal the secrets of the planet and its mysterious history as the story progresses.
The real-time multiplayer system lets players build their own path to victory. While fighting against live opponents, time and the natural perils that Gladius hides.
