The new Sisters of Battle DLCs for both Warhammer 40,000 Gladius and Warhammer 40,000 Battlesector are available. Both are going to add in a new playable faction: the Sisters of Battle, the first women-only faction in Warhammer 40,000.
The Sisters of Battle join Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector, with fifteen new units and special gameplay mechanics and can call on the Emperor’s Guidance through their HQ units, firing rounds that seemingly possess uncanny accuracy and inflict greater damage. The canoness can bless her allies or curse her foes with empowered faith abilities. Her scorn itself is a powerful weapon that cows the unfaithful. Celestian Sacresants carry stout bulwarks that turn aside any damage that would target her.
The Emperor’s spirit can push the Arco Flagellants to superhuman endurance, briefly increasing their movement and the movement of the sisters that fight alongside them. The Sisters Hospitallers can restore hit points and remove status effects from their battle brethren, while still being capable units in their own right. In the Adepta Sororitas DLC, you will command 15 such blessed units of the order, primed and ready for battle in Skirmish, Multiplayer, Planetary Supremacy and the new Daemonic Incursion mode. Each unit comes with its own unique and exquisitely crafted models and abilities, as well as all new HQ abilities for the faction as a whole.
Daemonic Incursion is an entirely new single-player mode that will be available to all Battlesector players as part of a free update that we’ll be launching alongside the Sisters of Battle Faction Pack. In Daemonic Incursion, waves of Khornate daemons enter realspace to spill blood, collect skulls and overrun your forces. This is a last-stand mode, in which your objective is simple: Survive!
In addition, we will announce and open for sign-up a new competitive online tournament of Battlesector in collaboration with Game Workshop. Players will be able to take part in it and get the chance to win some amazing physical goodies with a Sisters of Battle theme. The tournament’s name will be Sisters of Battle Tournament, starting in February 2023.
Just like Battlesector, Warhammer 40,000: Gladius expands with the Sisters of Battle as a new playable faction. A new faction joins the war for Gladius Prime: the Adepta Sororitas, with eighteen new units, new heroes, unique gameplay mechanics, city buildings, a new questline and a new tech tree.
The Adepta Sororitas, also known as the Sisters of Battle, are the militant arm of the Adeptus Ministorum. Pure of heart and fanatical of devotion, they place the worship of the Emperor above all other concerns. They maintain holy places anywhere where His subjects might be served, tending to the needs of the poor and the sick as well as spreading the word of His glory to all that might listen. But not all are worthy, and for those that aren’t – only merciful death can be granted.
