If you’re a regular player of Warhammer 40,000 video games, you’ve likely led Space Marines against hordes of Orks, commanded Space Wolves in card-based battle or piloted an Imperial Knight into combat with the forces of Chaos. But you’ve got a whole new experience coming, and Warhammer Community has the world exclusive reveal of it, courtesy of Games Workshop Licensing and Kasedo Games!
Hail the Omnissiah! The Adeptus Mechanicus are set to make their epic video game army debut as a new experience comes to the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Get ready as turn-based tactical game, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, heads to PC, Mac & Linux later this year.
Mechanicus puts you in control of an array of Adeptus Mechanicus forces for the first time ever as you lead your priests and troops on a tactical quest to salvage ancient technologies from the mysterious tombs of the planet Silva Tenebris. As Magos Dominus Faustinius of Mars, your every decision will shape the missions ahead and have far-reaching consequences for you and your team.
In a brand new release trailer, the recording of a deceased Tech-Priest, Magos Dominus Reditus, is played showing his contempt for the weakness of human flesh, and his never-ending service to the Machine God.
In-game, Mechanicus will enable you to overcome these ‘human weaknesses’ to upgrade your troops with augments that will replace their human limbs with bionics and mechadendrites. These will provide mechanical and tactical advantages as you progress throughout the game.
Augment: Flesh is weak! Upgrade your Tech-Priests’ limbs with mechanical augments made from the blessed metals of the Omnissiah. Customize your team with hundreds of possibilities, creating a squad to suit your playstyle.
Difficult Decisions: Make tough decisions that will forge the future from your Ark Mechanicus, The Caestus Metalican, and send you towards alternate endings for a truly unique playthrough.
Experience the Noosphere: Use the Adeptus Mechanicus’ evolved human cognition to scan unexplored tombs for valuable data in order to gain a tactical advantage over your enemy.
The Library: A compelling story written by Black Library author Ben Counter, specifically crafted to fit the unique personality of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction.
Mechanicus is scheduled for a late 2018 release and will be available for PC, Mac & Linux.
You can find out more about Mechanicus on its website, and join the community on Facebook and Twitter. And while you eagerly await the game, you might want to practise commanding the forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus on the tabletop with the codex and miniatures range available from Games Workshop.
