En bref. Voilà un bon point de plus pour les amateurs de ce 4X light prenant pour décor l’univers torturé de Warhammer 40 000. Jeu sympathique pour recréer de vastes batailles avec une dizaine de factions différentes, chacune bénéficiant ici d’une unité supplémentaire pour augmenter ou diversifier sa puissance de feu.
Parallèlement Gladius est passé en version 1.12, patch qui ajoute un peu de contenu en bonus, rééquilibre certaines unités et corrige quelques bugs (voir ce changelog).
Enfin, cerise sur le Space marine, sachez que à l’occasion du festival Warhammer Skulls, qui a débuté hier et durera a priori jusqu’au 1er juin prochain, vous pouvez obtenir gratuitement sur Steam Warhammer 40,000: Gladius. Un joli cadeau pour les fans de WH40K.

What’s there not to love (or hate) about the warlike Orks? Celebrating lots of dakka and shoota, Orks take center stage in the namesake DLC for the popular turn-based Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector. Always hunting for the next big waaagh! The Orks have arrived with fifteen super-killy units armed to da teef.
Fast-paced turn-based strategy dominates in the popular Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector being a brutal, and faithful game of warfare in a grimdark future. Players select their army, build it up, call in heroes, and engage in exhilarating combat across single-player campaigns, skirmishes, and multiplayer battles.
Lots of Dakka
Getting into a good scrap is one thing, but the Bad Moons Ork Clans are notorious for growing their teef the fastest. This gives them the biggest wealth double-quick, granting the Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector Ork Boyz the snazziest guns. Led by a mightykunnin’ Warboss – most ferocious – the Ork leader is only rivaled in size by the Meganobz in their Big Mek armor or the super stompy Deff Dreads. The Orks can lay down terrifying amounts of firepower with their heavy-duty Deffgunns, while Flash Gitz love to show off their jumbo killy weapons, giving the enemy a solid krumpin’.
Free to keep on Steam
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War is the acclaimed 4X turn-based strategy from creators Proxy Studios and publisher Slitherine.

Now is the best moment to step into a new strategic vision of Warhammer 40,000 grimdark future. With Warhammer Skulls, the game is free for a limited-time offer. Download it once, keep it forever!
And with this offer, a free Tyranid unit, the monstrous Tyrannocyte, will be gifted for free to all game owners. This horrifying, Tier-2 alien creature transports units to the frontline and supports them by pinning down enemy units.
