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.

For the whole duration of the Warhammer Skulls Festival (June 1st until June 8th), Battlesector will be discounted by 40%. Additionally, Slitherine announced a new Faction Pack DLC entitled the Sisters of Battle (Steam) will be playable as a full faction later during the year, with a complete roster of units and tailored gameplay mechanics.

On June 1st Battlesector is receiving a new free update containing one new and powerful unique unit for the Sisters of Battle, the Penitent Engine, and the first round of expansion and new features for Planetary Supremacy: these are the addition of HQ upgrades and complete tech trees for all factions in Planetary Supremacy, a feature which was highly requested by the community.

Regarding future plans, a new game mode will be added to Battlesector as part of a free update: Daemonic Incursion will see players fend off endless hordes of daemons and survive as long as possible. Contextually, several new Daemon units will be added to Planetary Supremacy mode. The new Daemon units in Planetary Supremacy will be released first, while Daemonic Incursion will be released later in a free update alongside the Sisters of Battle DLC. We will be announcing the precise dates as we get closer to their release.

“Partnering with Games Workshop helps us take full advantage of the huge visibility that the Skulls Festival has within the Warhammer community. This has become an annual landmark for the development teams involved with Warhammer and for the invaluable marketing opportunity it brings,” said Marco Minoli, CMO, Slitherine.

Key Features:

  • Age of Crimson Dawn: Experience an epic twenty mission single-player campaign that explores the aftermath of the Devastation of Baal. Help Sergeant Carleon and his allies purge the Tyranid infestation on Baal Secundus, and preserve the honour of the noble Blood Angels.
  • Skirmish Mode: Fight across the surface of Baal on maps of your choosing and select either the Blood Angels or the Tyranids in the Skirmish mode. Completely customize your army list by picking your units, heroes and their loadouts.
  • Forge Your Armies: Command iconic units like the Sanguinary Priest, the Librarian Dreadnought, and the Hive Tyrant to annihilate your foes. Use over 60 abilities and 50 weapons to orchestrate your opponent’s bloody demise.
  • Build Momentum: Each faction has a unique Momentum system that can result in a Surged unit. Units that Surge are able to string together superhuman chains of actions, or use the opportunity to further upgrade their abilities.
  • Call In Air Support: Use Command Points to call in faction-specific air support abilities. The Blood Angels Stormraven can obliterate xenos with a missile barrage, or deep strike a unit of veteran Assault Marines behind enemy lines. Meanwhile, the Tyranid Harpy can devastate the enemy defenses with its Sonic Screech, or scatter the battlefield with its deadly Spore Mines.
  • Face Your Friends On The Battlefield: With live and asynchronous multiplayer, and hotseat modes available, there’s no excuse not to take your friends to war.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PC (Steam)
