Slitherine (Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War, Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach and Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon) and Black Lab Games (Battlestar Galactica Deadlock and Starhammer) are pleased to announce that the critically acclaimed turn-based strategy title set in Games Workshop’s world-renowned grimdark universe Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is now available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4/5 and Games for Windows.
That’s not all: the game is now available for Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC.
Console version release
The console version features full achievement and trophy support, in addition to an updated UI and brand new control scheme specifically designed for consoles, giving players full tactical control when commanding the Blood Angel Space Marines in bone-rattling and soul-crushing skirmishes against the Tyranids.
Elites DLCs release
The Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector - Blood Angels Elites DLC gives players access to Assault Terminators and Sanguinary Guard. Assault Terminators feature a game-changing Deep Strike ability, while The Sanguinary Guard can quickly traverse the battlefield using their Jump Pack and can be equipped with a variety of ranged and melee weapon options.
The Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector - Tyranid Elites DLC adds the Broodlord and Hive Guard. The Broodlord are superior melee warriors with a natural ability for disrupting the minds of nearby prey, whereas the Hive Guard offers deadly ranged attacks, wrapped in a heavy armour of lumbering carapace.
New Faction announced on December 14
For an exclusive first look at a new, upcoming faction that will be added to the game in 2022, please tune in to the Slitherine Home of the Wargamers Live+ event taking place on the December 14th.
New Tournament open for sign-ups
The first official tournament for Battlesector is now open for sign-ups. There are 128 spots available. It is a PBEM Swiss system tournament played over the course of three rounds, each round lasting 14 days. It makes use of Slitherine's automated tournament system, which means our system will automatically pair you up with opponents in paired matches, and you will be receiving notifications when it is your turn to play. You can find the full rules here.
As the first public tournament, we consider this to be an Open Beta. We're looking forward to having a regular stream of online tournaments in 2022. You can join by clicking here (a Slitherine account is required, and you can register one for free) or directly from in-game.
