Slitherine profite de l’occasion du festival Warhammer Skulls, qui vient de débuter hier et durera a priori jusqu’au 1er juin prochain, pour dévoiler une nouvelle faction allant varier un peu plus les batailles dans le sympathique Warhammer 40000 – Battlesector. Ce sont donc enfin, mieux vaut tard que jamais, les Orks qui font leur arrivée sur Bhaal, portant à cinq le nombre de factions présentes (six si l’on compte les démons de Khorne, qui ne sont toutefois pas jouables).
Un morne et très peu utile trailer accompagne cette annonce assez imprévue, mais montre toutefois pendant à peine trente secondes les nouvelles unités. Heureusement la plupart des joueurs concernés connaissent bien la faction Ork, et savent certainement à quoi s’attendre.
Ce DLC est accompagné par un patch 1.3.54 qui équilibre différentes unités et améliore également les performances du jeu (voir ce changelog).

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. Released in 2018, it pits multiple factions against each other as they vie for dominance on the relic-strewn Gladius Prime. 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.
New Units galore
Players can round out their experience with the new Firepower Pack DLC, giving prospective commanders a host of new units. Get ready to play with the heavily armored Rogal Dorn Battle Tank of the Astra Militarum or the Space Marines’ Whirlwind artillery fire support vehicle. All factions see a unique new unit appear in their arsenal, amongst others, the Deathmark sniper for the Necrons, Deff Dread assault walkers for the Orks, Eldar Dark Reaper, and Imagifier for the Sisters Of Battle. The Firepower Pack is the latest in a line of successful DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War, each brimming with new content, units, features, or even entire new factions.
Warhammer Skulls Festival – Orks DLC & Firepower Pack
Battlesector and Gladius are taking part in the Warhammer Skulls Festival, with releases and major updates for both games, as well as a sale across the whole franchise.
But let’s take a look at it, shall we?
Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector
We are glad to announce that a new DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is available from today, introducing a new playable faction: the Orks are coming!
Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector – Orks
The most warlike race in the Galaxy, Orks live for the joy of battle and are always chasing their next big Waaagh! They arrive in Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector with fifteen super-killy units that are all armed to da teef and overflowing with Dakka!
Armed to da Teef
The Bad Moons Ork Clan are notorious for having the fastest growing teef and therefore the most wealth, which also means they have the biggest and snazziest guns. As their clan momentum grows their Dakka gets more accurate and even more killy!
Ork Boyz feed off the Waaagh energy of the mob, and inspire each other to even greater acts of ferocity. Ork boyz love nothin’ more than getting stuck into a good scrap and a group of Boyz, Nobz and Grots is a big green fungal momentum machine!
Might Iz Right
Every good Waaagh needs a ferocious Warboss at its head. A towering slab of muscle and aggression, the Warboss is only rivalled in size by the Meganobz in their Big Mek built mega armour or the super stompy Deff Dreads.
Orks might not be famed for their accuracy but what they always bring is the most dakka and the Battlesector boyz are no different! Lootas wield heavy-duty Deffguns, that lay down terrifying amounts of dakka whilst the Flash Gitz love to show off their snazzy weapons that are right killy and give the enemy a solid krumpin’.
Warhammer Skulls is the celebration of all digital games about Warhammer.
