Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector

Black Lab Games have released the Daemonic Update for their turn-based tactics game Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector‘s Daemonic Update adds the Daemons of Khorne as a new neutral faction in the game’s Planetary Supremacy mode. This new faction has access to several iconic Khornate units, including Bloodmasters, Bloodletters, Flesh Hounds, and the Skull Cannon. The update also adds 3 new maps, the new Siege mode, and a wide range of tweaks and balance updates.

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.

Planetary Supremacy Mode
Planetary Supremacy is a conquest-style skirmish campaign, introduced in a free update as part of our ever expanding plan for Battlesector, in which you, the player, decide the outcome.

Take command of your favourite faction and conquer the planet in a series of procedurally generated skirmish battles. To achieve victory, capture more tiles, acquire strategic resources and expand your army. Then, bring destruction to your enemies in Skirmish battles.

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!).
