Slitherine and Black Lab Games have released Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector – Necrons DLC, the latest content pack for their turn-based strategy game set in the 41st Millenium.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector – Necrons adds a third playable race to the game in the form of the relentless Living Metal legions of the Necrons. The faction consists of 14 units altogether, including many iconic units from the tabletop game like the Necron Overlord, Lychguard, Triarch Praetorians, Deathmarks, and more. Many of the faction’s most infamous tabletop mechanics have transferred over as well, including Reanimation Protocols and Resurrection Orbs.

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.

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!).
