Slitherine vient de confirmer quel sera le premier DLC du sympathique Sanctus Reach, extension qui va pleinement se concentrer sur les Orks via l'ajout d'une campagne supplémentaire leur étant dédié et de différentes nouvelles unités. Comme l'on peut l'apercevoir dans les images suivantes.

Nouvelle campagne qui vous mettra cette fois à la tête d'une horde Ork, dirigée par Big Redd (en en-tête ci-dessus), un des principaux meneurs de la Red Waaagh dévastant la planète ... jusqu'à ce que, ne l'oublions pas, les Spaces Wolves soient venus remettre les pendules à l'heure. Voilà donc de quoi proposer un joli défi aux amis des Orks, qui auront ainsi l'occasion de renverser le cours de cette guerre.

Coté gameplay les joueurs seront heureux d'apprendre que la faction Ork sera revisitée, les unités bénéficiant par exemple d'une meilleure progression, ce qui devrait donner lieu à de nouvelles compétences et à plus de choix tactiques. Aussi globalement l'ambiance du jeu sera de son coté améliorée avec plus d'illustrations.

Seul léger bémol à cette annonce aujourd'hui, point encore d'informations sur l'arrivée de la Garde Impériale et des troupes du Chaos, qui en théorie devraient suivre cette année.

Pour plus d'informations sur Sanctus Reach - Legacy of the Weirdboy, dont la date de sortie n'est pas encore connue, voyez cette page sur Steam ou celle-ci chez l'éditeur.

The Weirdboy is about to strike - the first DLC for Sanctus Reach is coming!

Big Redd was looking at the horizon: in front of him, corpses. Lots of corpses. Some were Orks, but many were clad in blue-grey armor, their shoulder pads yellow and black. Space Wolves. The big weirdboy reached for one of the helmets littering the ground and stared at it. He looked at the visor lenses soiled with blood and dirt, and grinned. He tossed the helmet as far as he could and bellowed a mighty Waaagh! The voices of a million boyz behind his back joined in, a deafening cry which meant only one thing: destruction was upon Alaric Prime, and there would be no end to it.

 
Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach is back with its first expansion! In Legacy of the Weirdboy you will play as Big Redd, a ferocious weirdboy. You will lead a mighty Ork horde, with the goal of unleashing a terrible strike on the Imperial defences, one which could seal the fate of the whole Sanctus Reach sector.

Following the release of Sanctus Reach fans and players gave us a lot of feedback on the game, and on what they would like to see. We listened, and we put tons of work into following that feedback.

In this first DLC you will have at your disposal several new units, many new abilities and plenty of new tactical options. Straylight have devoted the same extreme attention to detail as they had for models in the base game, and the new models are gorgeous. We’ll show them in detail soon. The Ork faction has been revamped, and now they have full unit progression in their own campaign. The sense of immersion in the campaign is enhanced thanks to the new comic book style illustrations which capture the theme of the game and its setting.

We are very satisfied by how this title is shaping up and we are sure that Sanctus Reach fans won’t be disappointed! This is only the first of a long series of releases and our work has just begun! We will show and tell more about Legacy of the Weirdboy as we get closer to release, so stay tuned.
