Description

Gladius Prime was known to Imperial scholars as a planet of archeological interest. During its colonization ancient relics were found, revealing hints of a shrouded past. But it was more than relics. Something awakened, an unspeakable horror from an ancient past, and the citizens of Gladius found themselves trapped in a terrible war for survival.

Gladius Prime was once a planet of peace. Now there is only war.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War brings you to a world of terror and violence with the first turn-based 4X strategy game set in the Warhammer universe. Face challenging AI or cooperate or compete with friends and strangers across the globe.



Play as one of four iconic Warhammer factions (Astra Militarum, Space Marines, Orks or Necrons), each with their own unique playstyle and technology tree. Explore a randomly generated world filled with special features and threatening wildlife that can crush your troop's morale. Secure control of powerful ancient artefacts to grant you an edge against rival factions.



Construct cities, buildings and fortifications to expand your empire and produce an army to vanquish your foes. Harvest resources and research new technologies to fuel and upgrade your machinery of war.



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.



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.

Great game for $5! grabbed tau and tyranids as well as all the $1-$2 purchases. About $20 total for a solidly fun 4x Warhammer 40k Game!

Looking for ad-mech and chaos to go on sale. So far no keys have been available.

  • Cheap for content
  • Fun diversity in the races.
  • $20 for coming up on 70hrs of gameplay. (Get it)
  • Might be my game? Loads slow at startup
Warhammer 40k:Gladius is a 4X, Grand Strategy game set in the fabled
Warhammer universe. This is not to be confused with the Total War
game ventures into the universe, as those are real time strategy games
unlike this. This game is in fact one of the few Grand Strategy, 4X games
in the Warhammer universe and I must say, it definitely matches the
outstandingly positive standards set by the Total War games. This game
offers you a full campaign with you taking charge of all four factions
available, a co-op mode, multiplayer and a custom match mode where
you can play vs the computer.

Which Faction Will You Draw Power From?
The game offers you the choice of 4 distinct factions. You can choose
from the Space Marines, the Astra Militarium, the Orks or the Necrons. I
will talk about each of these factions in brief.

The Space Marines are pretty much, the human race. They are extremely
well trained and well armed with high-tech weapons.

The Astra Militarium are an alien empire, they consist of a large number
of supporters and while they are loyal, they are also prone to fleeing
from high pressure situations. They are strong in numbers but are
weaker 1v1.

The Orks are a tanky alien race. They are very sturdy and tough to kill. As
you may have guessed the name is a hint to the traditional fantasy race
of Orcs and are very similar to them.

The Necrons are an ancient race that have futuristic tech and vehicles.
Not much is known about these guys, except that they can be very
deadly to face.

Research, Research And More Research!
The game is very similar to other grand strategy games. You have 4
resources to gather and you spend them to build more structures, get
more units to either fight or gather resources, research tech upgrades
etc. One thing that I must commend is the immense care taken in
designing the tech tree of each race. You have several tiers to the tree
and each tier has about 5 upgrades. You must research at least 2 to
reach the next tier. Some buildings require certain tech upgrades as do
certain units. Each faction has its own unique tech tree as well.

While we are still on the topic of gameplay let’s talk about the campaign
missions. The campaign offers you mission after mission in enemy
territory, till you eventually wipe out all the enemy factions. The game
does offer some amount of diplomacy, but the odds are you will win by
wiping out all the enemy factions.

A Must Buy For Every Strategy Fan!
This game does A LOT right and not a lot wrong. I for one don’t have
anything negative to say about this game, my only issue was with the
pre-order bonuses but that is irrelevant now. This game takes a beloved
franchise and makes a fantastic turn-based strategy game out of it.
Whether you are a fan of Warhammer games or a fan of strategy games
(or even just a fan of games in general!) this is a must buy. It offers hours
of content, plus re-playability with the 4 distinct factions.
