Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector roadmap released, includes Sisters of Battle DLC


Slitherine and Black Lab Games have announced a roadmap for their turn-based strategy game, Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector.

The biggest part of this roadmap is the addition of the Sisters of Battle via a new faction DLC pack. The warrior-nuns of the Adepta Soritas are in Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector already, but only as a minor faction with a handful of units.

This will change in the upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector – Sisters of Battle DLC, which will give these fanatical zealots of the Ecclesiarchy full faction mechanics, including iconic units like the Immolator and Exorcist tanks.

To prepare for the new faction DLC, Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector received a new free update as part of the Warhammer Skulls celebration that adds the Penitent Engine to the game. The update also includes big changes to the Planetary Supremacy mode, including a full tech tree for each faction.

Other future updates include the Daemonic Incursion mode. This mode tasks players will surviving as long as possible against an endless wave of Chaos daemons. Since this mode adds new daemonic units to the game, Chaos Daemons will also be added to Planetary Supremacy as a neutral faction.

You can find a video discussing the roadmap below.

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

The Adepta Sororitas are an elite sisterhood of warriors that serves the Ecclesiarchy, the church which keeps the Imperium of Man together.

For thousands of years they have been at the forefront in the fight against heretics and apostates. Now they are coming to Battlesector!

With their own distinct gameplay mechanics and flavour, the Sisters of Battle bring plenty of new units with them into the fray, including the Exorcist, Immolator tanks, and the fearsome Penitent Engine.

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!).
