Warhammer fans get ready as we now have a release date for the latest title in the popular series, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus. The game’s release date was announced during IGN’s Summer of Gaming event last night and will land on the Nintendo Switch system on 17th July. Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is being developed by the folks over at Bulwark Studios and is a turn-based strategy game. Here’s what you need to know!
“For the first time on console, take control of an array of Adeptus Mechanicus forces as you lead your Tech-Priests and troops on a tactical quest to salvage ancient technologies from the mysterious tombs of the planet Silva Tenebris.
The highly immersive strategic combat of Mechanicus is combined with the compelling story written by Black Library author, Ben Counter, specifically crafted to fit the unique personality of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction.
As well as the base game, the console edition of Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus includes the “Heretek” downloadable content which exposes the dark underbelly of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction like never before. Battle frighteningly familiar foes in a cohort of heretek Tech-Priests over five new missions using new disciplines, troops and unlockable firepower.
The console package is completed with the special “Omnissiah Edition” content which adds the atmospheric soundtrack, short story “Deus Ex Mechanicus” by Andy Chambers, the stunning digital art book, as well as the hard-hitting melee weapon, the Arc Scourge.”
