'Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector' Necrons DLC Coming In 2022 - Screens

Experience every bone-rattling explosion and soul-crushing charge in Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector, the definitive battle scale turn-based strategy game that takes you to the battlefields of the 41st Millenium.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a new turn-based strategy game set in the world-renowned sci-fi setting imagined by Games Workshop.

Pick your force, develop your army, field mighty heroes and fight for victory using superior strategy, awesome abilities, and devastating weaponry.

In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war.


In 2022, a new Faction that will land on Baal Secundus: the ancient Necrons, with a full new roster of unique units and heroes. Also, the game will receive a new procedural campaign type as part of a free update, for greatly increased replayability.

For sixty million years, the Necrons have slept in their tombs. Now they come to Battlesector!

The Necron faction DLC brings fourteen new units to Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector, with unique gameplay mechanics, weapons, and skills to bring glory to the return of the Necron empire.

The Dynasty of Living Metal

With bodies made of Living Metal, and Reanimation Protocols that can resurrect the fallen, the relentless march of these ancient warriors is endless. Unique Momentum mechanics make the Necron army play unlike any other.

Rule Your Dynasty

HQ leaders include the Necron Overlord, whose Command Protocols augment the strengths of his surrounding forces; and the mighty Plasmancer, a high damage nuker that can call down devastation with multiple earth-shattering abilities.

Control the Battlefield

The Necrons have many tools to dominate the battlefield. Warriors and Immortals march relentlessly on the opponent, while the indomitable Lychguard and the adaptable Triarch Praetorians provide tactical flexibility for any situation.

The pinpoint accuracy of the Deathmarks and Hexmark Destroyers will force your opponents to find cover. However, the devastating charge of the Skorpekh Destroyers will break even the most stalwart of defences.

Unrelenting Support

Heavy Lokhust Destroyers provide devastating strikes across the battlefield, and the Annihilation Barge will leave an inevitable trail of destruction wherever it goes. Use the versatile Tomb Blades to outmanoeuvre the lesser races or rain death from the skies with airstrikes from the Doom Scythe.

Ownership of the Necrons DLC is required to play as the Necrons in the War of Celestial Discord campaign, as well as in Skirmish and Multiplayer. Ownership of the Necrons DLC is NOT required to play against the Necrons in the War of Celestial Discord campaign, Skirmish or Multiplayer.
