The newest Warhammer 40,000 game might be the most interesting yet. Warhammer 40k: Mechanicus casts players as Tech-Priests.
For the Emperor!
There has been no shortage of Warhammer 40k titles. From big, huge triple-A RTS’ to smaller releases of the strategy sort, Games Workshop’s far future seems to be everywhere. However you slice it, 40k has gotten some serious play on just about every platform.
There has also however, been no game ever that’s centered on the 40k universe’s Tech-Priests. Exactly what they sound like, Tech-Priests basically deliver psalms of code in the odd merging of religion and technology that the Warhammer 40k universe is.
Not that you’ll play solely as Tech-Priests in Mechanicus, as you’ll be leading other forces of the Adeptus Mechanicus as well.
Lead your priests and troops on a tactical quest to salvage ancient technologies from the
mysterious catacombs of the Necron tomb world, Silva Tenebris. As Magos Dominus Faustinius of Mars, your every decision will shape the missions ahead and have far reaching consequences for you and your team.
The game is currently available in two flavors as a pre-order, the standard and the Omissiah Edition. While the standard version nets you just the game, the Omissiah Edition also includes:
- atmospheric soundtrack featuring the highly acclaimed music of Mechanicus
- stunning digital artbook containing an array of new and previously unseen concept illustrations and art from the development of the game
- hard-hitting power of the Arc Scourge to enhance your close-quarters arsenal.
If you pre-order either one right now on Steam, you’ll also net yourself a 10% off discount. Not too bad. From Kasedo Games, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus crusades onto the PC on November 15th.
