Epsom, Monday November 22nd. Slitherine LTD and Proxy Studios are proud to announce that Adeptus Mechanicus, the 9th DLC for the award winning game Warhammer 40,000 Gladius, is now available on Steam, Slitherine, Epic Games Store, GoG and other digital stores.

Jealous guardians of the knowledge required to maintain and construct the Imperium’s technology, they also possess their own elite armies of bionically-augmented soldiers and terrifying weapons of war. Xenos or man, stand in their way and they will annihilate you.

The faction has a full new roster of units, including Sicarian Infiltrator, Skorpius Dunerider and Knight Crusader, and unique abilities as Canticles of the Omnissiah and Monolithic Buildings.
