Warhammer 40,000 fans have much to rejoice, thanks to Games Workshop’s Warhammer Skulls event and strategy publisher Slitherine. Starting today, Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector welcomes the ferocious Orks in a new DLC, now available on Steam, PlayStation, and Xbox. Furthermore, Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War not only introduces the Firepower Pack DLC on Steam, but during Warhammer Skulls, it’s also completely free to download and keep, coming with a bonus monstrous Tyranid unit.

For the duration of the event, gamers can enjoy substantial discounts up to 80% on all of Slitherine’s Warhammer 40,000 games, including associated DLCs and expansions, on Steam.

The Warhammer Skulls event, organized by Games Workshop, runs from May 25th, 9:00 AM PST to June 1st, 9:00 AM PST.

The newly introduced Orks, armed to the teeth with fifteen super-killy units, bring their distinctive brutality to the turn-based Battlesector. With a heavy focus on fast-paced strategy, Battlesector offers an authentic Warhammer 40,000 experience across single-player campaigns, skirmishes, and multiplayer battles.

The notorious Bad Moons Ork Clan, known for their wealth and love for big guns, introduces an extra edge to Battlesector’s combat. Their Warboss leads the way, supported by Meganobz in Big Mek armor and Deff Dreads that lay down terrifying firepower. Flash Gitz, flaunting their over-the-top weapons, are eager to give their enemies a solid beating.

Meanwhile, Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War, the esteemed 4X turn-based strategy game by Proxy Studios and publisher Slitherine, is available for free for a limited time during the Warhammer Skulls event. The game offers a strategic spin on the Warhammer 40,000 universe where multiple factions compete for dominance on Gladius Prime. To sweeten the deal, all game owners will receive the monstrous Tyrannocyte, a Tier-2 alien creature, for free.

The new Firepower Pack DLC introduces an array of new units for commanders to employ, such as the heavily armored Rogal Dorn Battle Tank, the Space Marines’ Whirlwind artillery fire support vehicle, the Necrons’ Deathmark sniper, and more. This latest addition further enriches the already substantial Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War content. Below is the press news, the Battlesector Orks DLC Trailer, and Gladius Firepower Trailer.

What’s there not to love (or hate) about the warlike Orks? Celebrating lots of dakka and shoota, Orks take center stage in the namesake DLC for the popular turn-based Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector. Always hunting for the next big waaagh! The Orks have arrived with fifteen super-killy units armed to da teef.
Fast-paced turn-based strategy dominates in the popular Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector being a brutal, and faithful game of warfare in a grimdark future. Players select their army, build it up, call in heroes, and engage in exhilarating combat across single-player campaigns, skirmishes, and multiplayer battles.

Lots of Dakka
Getting into a good scrap is one thing, but the Bad Moons Ork Clans are notorious for growing their teef the fastest. This gives them the biggest wealth double-quick, granting the Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector Ork Boyz the snazziest guns. Led by a mightykunnin’ Warboss – most ferocious – the Ork leader is only rivaled in size by the Meganobz in their Big Mek armor or the super stompy Deff Dreads. The Orks can lay down terrifying amounts of firepower with their heavy-duty Deffgunns, while Flash Gitz love to show off their jumbo killy weapons, giving the enemy a solid krumpin’.

Free to keep on Steam
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War is the acclaimed 4X turn-based strategy from creators Proxy Studios and publisher Slitherine. Released in 2018, it pits multiple factions against each other as they vie for dominance on the relic-strewn Gladius Prime. Now is the best moment to step into a new strategic vision of Warhammer 40,000 grimdark future. With Warhammer Skulls, the game is free for a limited-time offer. Download it once, keep it forever!
And with this offer, a free Tyranid unit, the monstrous Tyrannocyte, will be gifted for free to all game owners. This horrifying, Tier-2 alien creature transports units to the frontline and supports them by pinning down enemy units.

New Units galore
Players can round out their experience with the new Firepower Pack DLC, giving prospective commanders a host of new units. Get ready to play with the heavily armored Rogal Dorn Battle Tank of the Astra Militarum or the Space Marines’ Whirlwind artillery fire support vehicle. All factions see a unique new unit appear in their arsenal, amongst others, the Deathmark sniper for the Necrons, Deff Dread assault walkers for the Orks, Eldar Dark Reaper, and Imagifier for the Sisters Of Battle. The Firepower Pack is the latest in a line of successful DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War, each brimming with new content, units, features, or even entire new factions.
