Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus is a turn-based strategy game, based on Games Workshop's Titan Legions tabletop game, that puts you in control of the greatest weapons available to the Imperium of Man, the mighty Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus!

In Dominus, choose to control a force of Titans from the loyalist Legions of Astorum (Warp Runners), Gryphonicus (War Griffons), Crucius (Warmongers) or Osedax (The Cockatrices), or choose from the traitorous Chaos Legions of Mortis (Death Heads), Vulcanum (Dark Fire), Damnosus (Lords of Ruin) and Fureans (Tiger Eyes).

Utilising the tabletop Titan Legion rules system as its foundation, Dominus features an easy-to-play yet deep strategic and tactical experience via its streamlined command system, which sees you and your opponent giving turn-based activation orders to your Titans simultaneously, resulting in fast-paced battles. It successfully marries this strategic play with in-game cut scenes as the gargantuan Titans exchange volleys of cannon shots, blistering laser blasts and other epic, super-powered weapons of the far off future!

While luck will play a part as you trade blows with your foe on the futuristic battlefields of the 41st Millennium, your path to victory lies in your army list building and how you manoeuvre your units upon the battlefield. As a commander, you will have access to the most classic, iconic Titan units from the Warhammer 40,000 universe: Warhounds, Reavers and the gigantic Warlord, for both the Imperial and Chaos factions. Each of these Titans will have multiple variants available, featuring different weapon configurations, thereby enabling your Titans to fulfil the battlefield role your strategy demands.

Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus will feature a "living battlefield" that employs unit and battlefield animations to show players the Warhammer 40,000 universe they know and love.

Coming to Steam Early Access on March 31st for just US$9.99 (and a 30% discount during launch week), Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus will feature a Skirmish mode against an AI opponent for single-player and an online multi-player mode. Upon full release, the game will also offer an exciting single-player campaign.

The current Early Access build of Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus features the following:

  • A true-to-source adaptation of the Titan Legions tabletop rules, streamlined for PC
  • Nine Titan variants, three each for the Warlord, Reaver and Warhound
  • Four Loyalist Legios and four Chaos Legios to choose from
  • Three battlefields, each with distinct environments
  • Destructible terrain features - watch buildings collapse as stray weapons fire obliterates their structural integrity
  • Several game modes with multiple victory conditions - there is more than one way to win
  • Eight fixed-forces scenarios to challenge your skills as Legate of a Maniple of Titans
  • Discover the strategic depth underlying the game, with points-based army list building in Skirmish and Multi-Player via the Detachment Builder

Over time, we plan to release a series of updates to the game as it progresses towards the full version of the title.

Update One (currently in development)

The first major update planned for Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus focuses on gameplay additions::

  • Stress (suppression mechanics) - an additional layer of tactical concern that adds depth!
  • Close Assault and Fire Fight - engage with your enemy in deadly close-quarters combat!
  • Steam Achievements (first grouping)
  • A loot-drop system (initial implementation)
  • General quality-of-life improvements

Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus will be in Early Access somewhere between six months and a year.
