Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector Adds Necrons in Next DLC Pack

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector

Black Lab Games have announced that Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector adds Necrons in the first post-release faction DLC for their turn-based tactics game.

The mysterious and ancient Necrons will be the first new faction added to the game, and will consist of 14 units with lots of unique mechanics. Reanimation Protocols will allow your warriors made of Living Metal to rise from the dead, and they will have their own take on the game’s Momentum mechanic like the other two factions do.

While Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector adds Necrons as a hefty paid DLC pack, the game will be getting a hefty free update as well. This update will add a conquest-style single player campaign, where players can control the Blood Angels, Tyranids, or Necrons as they conquer territory and wipe the rival factions from the map.

You can find a rundown of the DLC (via Steam) below:

For sixty million years, the Necrons have slept in their tombs. Now they come to Battlesector!
The Necron faction DLC brings fourteen new units to Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector, with unique gameplay mechanics, weapons, and skills to bring glory to the return of the Necron empire.

The Dynasty of Living Metal
With bodies made of Living Metal, and Reanimation Protocols that can resurrect the fallen, the relentless march of these ancient warriors is endless. Unique Momentum mechanics make the Necron army play unlike any other.

Rule Your Dynasty
HQ leaders include the Necron Overlord, whose Command Protocols augment the strengths of his surrounding forces; and the mighty Plasmancer, a high damage nuker that can call down devastation with multiple earth-shattering abilities.

Control the Battlefield
The Necrons have many tools to dominate the battlefield. Warriors and Immortals march relentlessly on the opponent, while the indomitable Lychguard and the adaptable Triarch Praetorians provide tactical flexibility for any situation.
The pinpoint accuracy of the Deathmarks and Hexmark Destroyers will force your opponents to find cover. However, the devastating charge of the Skorpekh Destroyers will break even the most stalwart of defences.

Unrelenting Support
Heavy Lokhust Destroyers provide devastating strikes across the battlefield, and the Annihilation Barge will leave an inevitable trail of destruction wherever it goes. Use the versatile Tomb Blades to outmanoeuvre the lesser races or rain death from the skies with airstrikes from the Doom Scythe.

Ownership of the Necrons DLC is required to play as the Necrons in the War of Celestial Discord campaign, as well as in Skirmish and Multiplayer. Ownership of the Necrons DLC is NOT required to play against the Necrons in the War of Celestial Discord campaign, Skirmish or Multiplayer.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is available on Windows PC (via GOG and Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. If you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!).
