Looking for more Grimdark 4x strategy in your life? Warhammer 40,000: Gladius Relics of War is on sale on PC right now through March 1st!
This weekend you can save a Land Raider load by picking up Warhammer 40,000: Gladius from the Steam store on PC. This 4x strategy game has been a solid hit since it’s launch and has received a ton of expansion content (also on sale). Check it out.
“Gladius Prime was known to Imperial scholars as a planet of archeological interest. During its colonization ancient relics were found, revealing hints of a shrouded past. But it was more than relics. Something awakened, an unspeakable horror from an ancient past, and the citizens of Gladius found themselves trapped in a terrible war for survival.
Gladius Prime was once a planet of peace. Now there is only war.
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War brings you to a world of terror and violence with the first turn-based 4X strategy game set in the Warhammer universe. Face challenging AI or cooperate or compete with friends and strangers across the globe.”
If you want a quick look at the gameplay here’s the official gameplay trailer from Slitherine Games:
Being a 4x game, it’s similar to the Civilization series – but with obvious changes. It does use a hex-based system for the world map and the core game features four playable races: Astra Militarum, Space Marine, Orks, and Necrons. Each army has its own set of units, abilities, buildings, and tech. You’ll be duking it out for territory vs AI or with friends as it has a ton of gameplay modes. There are quite a few expansions and four of them add in playable factions. Those DLCs include: Tyranids, Chaos Space Marines, T’au, and Craftworld Aeldari. Conviently, you can pick-up all those via the Complete Edition which is also on sale.
The sale ends March 1st – so if you want to get in on this action, you’ve got the weekend to decide!
It’s Grimdark Civ. Or Maybe it’s Civ 40k. Whatever you want to call it, Gladius is on sale this weekend!
