While we wait for the Titan Legions to take to the tabletop–why not enjoy the Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus video game, which looks to bring the indomitable might of the Adeptus Titanicus to your PC. Crush your enemies beneath the might of the Imperium’s greatest weapons!

If the idea of taking command of a giant robot and using it to lay waste to other giant robots doesn’t appeal to you, then I just don’t know what I can do for you. If the idea of taking command of a legion of giant robots (well 3 of them anyway) doesn’t speak to your soul, I don’t know what to tell you. That’s a part of the cultural consciousness–from Battletech to Gundams to Rims from the Pacific and Gears that are Xeno–giant robots are a part of the dream of humanity.

GW knows this, that’s why they made Titan Legions. Membraine Studios knows this. That’s why they adapted the game into Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus. Check out our preview of the early access build below.

Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus, the 3D turn-based strategy PC game adaptation of Games Workshop’s Titan Legions tabletop game, puts you in control of the greatest weapons available to the Imperium of Man, the mighty Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus!

Control a force of Titans
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 Eye)

Futuristic warfare
Utilising the tabletop Titan Legions 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 activation orders to your Titans, resulting in fast-paced battles. It successfully marries this strategic play with action sequences as the gargantuan Titans exchange volleys of cannon shots, blistering laser blasts and other epic, super-powered weapons of the far off future!

Easy to play, challenging to master
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.

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

These war machines might be incredibly costly, so sometimes in order to help pay for them Planetary Governors will have to Titan their belts…
