Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector Console Versions Now Available

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector

Slitherine have announced the Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector console versions are now available on both PlayStation and Xbox platforms.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector first released on Windows PC back in July, and has now made its way to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. These console ports were released alongside versions for the Windows Store and Xbox Game Pass.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a turn-based strategy game set in the aftermath of the Devastation of Baal. Players are tasked with purging the last remnants of Hive Fleet Leviathan that linger on Baal as Sergeant Carleon and his fellow Blood Angels. The console release lacks the PC version’s asynchronous multiplayer, and instead includes local multiplayer.

Here’s a new trailer for the Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector console versions:

The console ports coincide with some new content for the PC version, including a pair of DLC packs: the Blood Angels Elites and the Tyranid Elites. Both DLC packs add a pair of new units for the Blood Angels (Assault Terminators and Sanguinary Guard) and Tyranids (Broodlord and Hive Guard). The DLC packs are $1.99 each. The PC version also received a big free update that you can read about here.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a fast-paced turn-based strategy game set in the grimdark universe of the 41st Millenium. Pick your force, develop your army, field mighty heroes and fight for victory using superior strategy, awesome abilities, and devastating weaponry.

Age of Crimson Dawn
Experience an epic twenty mission single-player campaign that explores the aftermath of the Devastation of Baal. Help Sergeant Carleon and his allies purge the Tyranid infestation on Baal Secundus, and preserve the honour of the noble Blood Angels.

Skirmish Mode
Fight across the surface of Baal on maps of your choosing and select either the Blood Angels or the Tyranids in the Skirmish mode. Completely customize your army list by picking your units, heroes and their loadouts.

Forge Your Armies
Command iconic units like the Sanguinary Priest, the Librarian Dreadnought, and the Hive Tyrant to annihilate your foes. Use over 60 abilities and 50 weapons to orchestrate your opponent’s bloody demise.

Build Momentum
Each faction has a unique Momentum system that can result in a Surged unit. Units that Surge are able to string together superhuman chains of actions, or use the opportunity to further upgrade their abilities.

Call In Air Support
Use Command Points to call in faction-specific air support abilities. The Blood Angels Stormraven can obliterate xenos with a missile barrage, or deep strike a unit of veteran Assault Marines behind enemy lines. Meanwhile, the Tyranid Harpy can devastate the enemy defenses with its Sonic Screech, or scatter the battlefield with its deadly Spore Mines.

Face Your Friends On The Battlefield
With live and asynchronous multiplayer, and hotseat modes available, there’s no excuse not to take your friends to war.

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!).
