Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector - Necrons DLC is now available
Slitherine Games and Black Lab Games are thrilled to announce that Warhammer 40,000 Battlesector’s first major DLC expansion, Necrons, will launch on April 21 st on PC and consoles. This forthcoming update expands upon the rich turn-based action by introducing the all-new Necrons faction.
After a sixty million year-long slumber, this army of ancient Xenos has joined the fight, giving players 14 new unit types to command. Each of these new units comes with its own unique weapons, skills, and gameplay mechanics to be used strategically in battle. The relentless attacks of Deathmarks and Hexmarks Destroyers will force your foes into hiding, whilst the Doom Scythe can rain pain from above with a flurry of deadly airstrikes.
The Necrons DLC coincides with a free update that contains the first version of the new Planetary Supremacy campaign. This single-player “conquest style” campaign sees three factions (the Blood Angels, Tyranids, and Necrons) battle it out to be the last group standing on a procedurally generated map. The update that arrives on April 21st will be the first iteration of the new campaign, as Black Lab Games plans to expand its offering in the future based on player feedback.
Players must own the Necrons DLC to be able to play as the Necrons faction in the Planetary Supremacy campaign. Ownership of the DLC isn’t required to battle against the Necrons in the Planetary Supremacy Campaign, Skirmish, or Multiplayer. A brand new trailer for the Necrons DLC can be viewed here.
Initially released on PC in July 2021, Battlesector is set within the iconic Warhammer 40,000 universe and sees players engage in strategic turn-based battles on a grid-based map. Since its release, Black Lab has built upon the game with releases on Xbox and Playstation, as well as two smaller expansions to its factions - Blood Angels Elites and Tyranids Elites.
Warhammer 40,000 Battlesector is available also on Game Pass PC and Xbox.
