Progress through a different storyline with each faction as their destiny on Gladius Prime, a world tainted by the warp, unfolds. In the end, when all the dust has settled, only one faction can emerge victorious.

eXterminate

Command a wide array of devastating weaponry, issue city edicts and deploy tactical operations. Recruit hero units that possess distinct special abilities and can be equipped with items, ranging from advanced grenades to mighty relics of the past. As they become more and more powerful with each rank, they turn into true champions of your cause.

“A pretty and novel use of the 40K license, brought down by uninspired design and plain bad game balance.”

“A plodding and predictable 4X strategy game that's relaxing in its own way, but rarely challenging.”
