Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus is set to augment your console Warhammer collection when it expands the empire onto Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this July.
In a press announcement, Kalypso Media Group has just confirmed that Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus is now taking this critically acclaimed slice of the Warhammer universe onto home consoles. While the much loved Games Workshop IP has a relatively mixed gaming history, this campaign is definitely worth your time. Putting players in charge of the tech priests and augmented soldiers of the Adeptus Mechanicus forces, this turn based strategy attempts to salvage the mysteries hidden in the tombs of Silva Tenebris.
It isn’t really necessary to understand the lore behind this newly discovered planet, although it helps for fans of the far flung future franchise. The narrative at the centre of this tale should enthuse fans just as much as the premise. Mechanicus comes crafted straight from the pen of Black Library author, Ben Counter, specifically crafted to fit the unique personality of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction. When this strategy and story landed on PC back in 2018, it gathered a bunch of editors awards and stood out as one of the best strategy games of the year, never mind in the Warhammer library.
Whether you are interested in making difficult decisions, upgrading your Tech-Priests with weapons, support items, Servo-Skulls and other mechanical augments or simply love the story then it’s likely the console release of Warhammer 40k: Mechanicus will have plenty for you. The upcoming ports come with the base game and the Heretek DLC which exposes the dark underbelly of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction. In addition, fans will find the special Omnissiah Edition also includes an atmospheric soundtrack, the short story ‘Deus Ex Mechanicus’ by Andy Chambers, the stunning digital artbook, as well as the hard-hitting melee weapon, the Arc Scourge.
Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus is out in July for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch but you can find out more about the title over on the official Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus Steam Store page right now.
