Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus - Announced
Hail the Omnissiah! The Adeptus Mechanicus are set to make their epic video game army debut as Kasedo Games announce a partnership with Games Workshop to bring a new experience to the Warhammer 40K universe. Get ready as turn-based tactical game, Warhammer® 40,000®: Mechanicus, heads to PC, Mac & Linux later this year. Mechanicus puts you in control of an array of Adeptus Mechanicus forces for the first time ever as you lead your priests and troops on a tactical quest to salvage ancient technologies from the mysterious tombs of the planet Silva Tenebris. As Magos Dominus Faustinius of Mars, your every decision will shape the missions ahead and have far reaching consequences for you and your team.
To celebrate the announcement, Kasedo Games have released a trailer which plays the recording of a deceased Tech-Priest, Magos Dominus Reditus, which shows his contempt for the weakness of human flesh, and his never ending service to The Machine God. In-game, Mechanicus will enable you to overcome these ‘human weaknesses’ to upgrade your troops with augments that will replace their human limbs with bionics and mechadendrites. These will provide mechanical and tactical advantages as you progress throughout the game. “When Kasedo Games approached us with their exciting and original vision centering on the Adeptus Mechanicus race, the idea stood out as something we wanted to get behind.” Said Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop. “Twinned with their clear knowledge of the 40K universe and passion for creating a game that fits the faction perfectly, we were more than happy to work together.”
Mechanicus also sees Kasedo Games, once again, partner up with French developer Bulwark Studios who previously worked together on strategy/RPG title, Crowntakers. “Working with Bulwark on Mechanicus was an absolute no-brainer. They have all the skills required to make it an amazing game and their immersion into the Warhammer Universe has been second to none.” Said Andrew McKerrow, Producer and Product Manager at Kasedo Games. “This project has been in conception for a few years now and, having been a big Warhammer fan since a child, I’m thrilled that we can announce a unique title to the community”.
