Warhammer 40K: Battlesector brings tuna-based, “battle-scale” strategy to consoles on December 2nd

Another Warhammer 40K game is coming up fast, as Warhammer 40K: Battlesector brings large scale war to the PlayStation and Xbox next month.

Grim, yes, but also dark

There’s no shortage of Games Workshop-inspired video games. Over the last few years, both the Warhammer and Warhammer 40K universes have absolutely exploded with new games. Those include action fare, but also lots and lots of strategy.

And it’s back to that latter genre once again, that developer Slitherine reaches into for Warhammer 40K: Battlesector. A turn-based strategy title, Battlesector promises “battle-scale” action, with “an epic single-player campaign that explores the aftermath of the Devastation of Baal”.

It’s the Imperium of Man vs the vile forces of the Tyrannid swarm.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is the definitive battle-scale turn-based strategy title that takes players to the battlefields of the 41st Millennium in an epic single-player campaign that explores the aftermath of the Devastation of Baal. Sergeant Carleon and his allies must purge the Tyranid infestation on Baal Secundus, and preserve the honour of the noble Blood Angels. The gripping campaign also introduces the mighty Primaris Marines for the first time.

A whole new experience

Warhammer 40K: Battlesector will be fully tailored to consoles, and include a brand new UI and control scheme. And you can add to that full achievement and trophy support, and quite a bit of post-launch content.

Slitherine says that the game will add in “new factions, maps and modes” in the months to come. The first two will launch day and date with the console edition of the game, on December 2nd, and include:

  • The Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector – Blood Angels Elite DLCgives players access to Assault Terminators and Sanguinary Guard. Assault Terminators feature a game-changing Deep Strike ability, while The Sanguinary Guard can quickly traverse the battlefield using their Jump Pack and can be equipped with a variety of ranged and melee weapon options. 
  • The Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector – Tyranid Elites DLCadds the Broodlord and Hive Guard. The Broodlord are superior melee warriors with a natural ability for disrupting the minds of nearby prey, whereas the Hive Guard offers deadly ranged attacks, wrapped in a heavy armour of lumbering carapace. 

Out right now on Steam for the PC, the game is also set to join Games for Windows on that platform. It’s arrival is scheduled for when Battlesector launches for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5, which will all happen on December 2nd.

Oh, and one last thing, it’s coming to Game Pass as well. And I mean for both the Xbox and PC.
