Warhammer 40,000: Gladius Announced

Slitherine and Games Workshop announce Warhammer 40,000: Gladius, an upcoming game that will offer a 4X take on Warhammer 40,000 (so, Warhammer 160,000?). The new 40K game will offer 4X play at 4K resolution featuring four factions, so to paraphrase Edwin Starr, Waaagh, what is it good four? They start things off with an announcement trailer and say they will follow this with a livestream on the Slitherine Twitch channel next Friday at 2:00 pm EST. You can also follow this project through its official product page and Steam page. In the meantime, there are details about what to expect in the announcement:
Slitherine and Games Workshop renew their relationship to offer a fresh approach to the Warhammer 40,000 universe planetary 4X.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius incorporates the dark, gothic, far future science-fantasy setting in ways never tried before. A brand new, deep storyline has been created to combine elements of 4X gameplay with a combat-focused system. The evolution of technology, construction of infrastructures and exploration of an unknown world, goes hand in hand with the management of military resources, including heroes with special abilities and mighty war machines.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius has been designed to give four totally different gameplay experiences, depending on which factions players choose. Space Marines, Astra Militarum (aka Imperial Guard), Orks and Necrons each have dramatically different characteristics, both in how they develop and expand and in the way they interact with allies and enemies. This gives the game virtually endless replay value and players the chance to play out the same experience in totally divergent ways.

In Warhammer 40,000: Gladius there is also a massive difference between playing solo or in multiplayer. The deep storyline was created from scratch to allow players to explore an entire world and lead the expansion of an empire from the ground up. The discovery of ancient artefacts and the custom-crafted quests will reveal the secrets of the planet and its mysterious history as the story progresses.

The real-time multiplayer system lets players build their own path to victory while fighting against live opponents, time and the natural perils that Gladius hides.

Don't miss the exclusive first look at Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War on Slitherine's official [Twitch channel], live on Friday December 1st at 7 pm GMT.

Two human factions and no Eldar? No interest, thanks.
