Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War is a planetary 4X strategy game with real-time multiplayer by Slitherine and Games Workshop. Gladius will take place on the world of Gladius Prime, a planet of "archaeological interest". WH40K: Gladius – Relics of War is coming soon.
Slitherine and Games Workshop would like to let you know that they have joined forces once again to bring you planetary 4x in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius will have elements of the dark, gothic and far future science-fantasy settings all mashed up and interwoven with a brand new storyline. The new storyline will combine elements of 4x gameplay with a combat-focused system.
"The evolution of technology, construction of infrastructures and exploration of an unknown world, goes hand in hand with the management of military resources, including heroes with special abilities and mighty war machines" says the press release.
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius will offer a total of four factions: "Space Marines, Astra Militarum (aka Imperial Guard), Orks and Necrons each [with] dramatically different characteristics, both in how they develop and expand and in the way they interact with allies and enemies" explains the announcement.
"In Warhammer 40,000: Gladius there is also the possibility to choose 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," promises the post.
The first look at Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War will go down on Slitherine's official Twitch channel, live on Friday, 01 December at 7:00 pm GMT. No release date has been given, but that might change on Friday.
