Publisher: Kasedo Games

Genre: Strategy

Take control of one of the most technologically advanced armies in the Imperium - The Adeptus Mechanicus. As Magos Dominus Faustinius, you’ll lead the expedition on the newly rediscovered Necron planet of Silva Tenebris. Customize your team, manage resources, discover long-forgotten tech, and control your Tech-Priests’ every move. Your every decision will shape the missions ahead and ultimately decide the fate of the troops under your command in over 50 hand-crafted missions. Choose your path carefully - the Imperium depends on it. AUGMENT Flesh is weak! Upgrade your Tech-Priests with weapons, support items, Servo-Skulls and other mechanical augments as you assemble your cohort. Customize your team’s disciplines, choosing from multiple character classes to create a squad for every playstyle. UNIQUE TACTICAL COMBAT Engage in immersively strategic combat that will test your mettle under the extreme pressure of the xenos ambush. Access your most powerful weapons and abilities by using Cognition Points and advance on your enemy without pause. Fear not, the Omnissiah favours the brave. THE LIBRARY OF IMMERSION A compelling story written by Black Library author, Ben Counter, specifically crafted to fit the unique personality of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction, with each character having their own personalities and agendas. Feel the tension and admire the devotion with unique visual effects and breathtaking audio. DIFFICULT DECISIONS Make tough decisions that will forge the future from your Ark Mechanicus, The Caestus Metalican, and send you towards alternate endings for a truly unique playthrough. Be warned, however, the more you explore each tomb, the greater the rewards but also greater the threat. CANTICLES OF THE OMNISSIAH Collect in-game achievements and be rewarded with strong abilities that can be used once per mission to aid you in the heat of battle. AND SO MUCH MORE

An excellent way to take this tactical game to Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The same game, but with some additions and a great plot to enjoy.

One of the best entries in the Warhammer 40.000 universe. Mechanicus offers a fantastic story, an outstanding soundtrack, and a sick voyage into the dark future of mankind where only war can be found.
